Hi everyone! I may not know a lot of you, so allow me to introduce myself. My name is Angelina Joleen Tayama Reyes-Chavez. Yes, I know I have a very long name. I am a senior and this is going to be my first year writing for The Ubiquity. This year might be a little funny and complicated because of what’s going on, but I am determined to make it one of the best years of my life! No pandemic is going to kill my fun. Along with being a new member of The Ubiquity, I have also been on the varsity swim team since my freshman year! Let’s hope I can make it all four years, fingers crossed. I’m a real simple gal, or at least I like to think so. I absolutely love food. If you give me something new to try, I will always give it a shot. However, no food will ever compare to my baby, Chicken Alfredo. Most of the time you can catch me hanging at beaches or at the pool, I’m a lifeguard so if you ever need some saving, give me a call. Lastly, I love meeting new people and making friends so if you ever see me around school don’t be afraid to come up and say hi! I hope you have an amazing day you beautiful person!

 

9.28.20 Update

Hello, again fellow quarantiners! I am back with a big life update for all of you. I am sure that many of you guys have been finding ways to cope with being locked away in a house with not a lot to do for this whole quarantine just like I have. I am happy to announce that, during this whole mess, I have decided what I want to do after high school, and I started my journey to getting there. I will be joining the Airforce soon after high school ends. Recently, I spoke to a recruiter and they told me a lot of good information about it all and I am very excited. 

Distance learning has been getting on my nerves a little so I decided to take a little one day break. Don’t get me wrong - I absolutely love distance learning because it is very self-paced and I like that, but sometimes I am going to need a slight break. I started to watch this show on Netflix called Girl Boss. It is about a woman who flips old clothes into amazing clothing that people want to buy. It is amazing and definitely gave me the mental break that I needed. 

If you ever feel tired or stressed from distance learning, never forget that it is ok to take a little break. Make sure you sit down, take a breath, eat a snack, and drink some water. It will give you some time to yourself and, trust me, it will make you feel much better. It did for me. Anyway, I hope to get to see some of y’all soon. If you ever see me don’t hesitate to say “Hey!” and have a good day!

 

2.1.20 Update

As winter break comes to a close, I need to take a step back and look at all that has happened in the past couple of weeks. Life seems to be throwing itself at me rather quickly, but somehow I have been able to keep my head above water-- something I am extremely proud of myself. Throughout the break, I had one mission and one mission only: to get into the Air Force. I had to go through countless numbers of inspections over the break to see if I even qualified. This was a little difficult for me as it required me to stay overnight at places I was unfamiliar with and all on my own. This seemed like something I was going to hate, but at the end of the day, I made new friends and accomplished my mission. My hard work paid off, and although I did not get much of a relaxing break, I did have a very productive break and am thankful for that.
