Urban Dictionary for Hayfield Teachers, you’re welcome.

The halls of Hayfield have become unknown territory for teachers amongst the crowds of students. Many find their conversations almost foreign, a different language all together, with new vocabulary being spoken every single day. Here’s a helpful guide to better communicate with students in your class!


Locked In [laakt in] – The act of focusing on a certain task, usually referred to in an educational setting

“Let me lock in for this exam.”


OC [oh-see] – Out of control, used in the context that a certain thing/object is doing too much.

“Stacy is so oc for making us wake up at five in the morning”


Crash out [krash owt] – A person who is reckless with their grades

“He’s a crash out, skipping class instead of studying for the test.”


Sice [sise] – Offer up a something by request

“Sice me some Chick-Fil-A please.”


Rizz [rhizz] – Short for charisma, ability to approach and talk to someone

“His rizz on Zendaya was crazy.”


Blown [blow-nuh] – The act of making someone mad

“I’m blown about that last game.”


Chat – Derived from the online streaming platform, refers to the audience- essentially breaking the fourth wall

“Chat, am I cooked.” (reference cooked further down)


Slay – Killed it/did amazing on a certain thing

“You slayed that fit” 


Fit – Abbreviation for outfit

“Oh you’re fit ate down.”


Ate – a form of praise for someone

“Her instagram post ate.”


Cooked – inability to successfully do something

“I’m cooked for the upcoming exam.”


Cook/Cooking – A successful preparation for something

“Let me cook up a response.”


Opp – Abbreviation for opposition, used in the context of someone with an agenda against you

“She spread my secrets to other people, what an opp.”


Bot – referring to a person with no personality or character

“Ben is such a bot for following everyone else’s opinion.”


Take with a grain of salt, or as literally as you want! Gen Z terminology is a tricky road to follow especially when paired together, so here’s an example sentence to practice your knowledge. Are you ready?

Sarah asks, “That boba spot ate last night, but lowkey saw so many opps there, sice me Gretchen’s number so I can tell her not to go there.”

What’s your response? If it entitles you giving Sarah Gretchen’s phone number or asking who Sarah saw at the bubble tea shop then you have successfully mastered the language of Hayfield students.
