About the Blogger

About the author behind the blog of Navigatingadulthood.com

Hi, I’m Ying. I’m a late-twenty-something currently residing in the Boston area. I was born and raised in sunny Arizona. After graduating from The University of Arizona with a business degree, I moved to the East Coast. At my first “grownup” job, I made over 200,000 cold calls for one of the largest technology companies. Today, I’m an IT project manager by day and by night, I’m a blogger extraordinaire, aspirational home cook and tv binge watcher.

About Navigating Adulthood

I’m in my late twenties and I seem to be someone people turn to for advice. In my group of friends, I’m the one you frantically text/call when you have moments ranging from “oh shit” [you forgot you invited your boyfriend/girlfriend over for a home-cooked meal and the most elaborate thing you’ve ever made is toast] to “I have no idea what I’m doing” [how can I come up with better passwords?].

I definitely don’t have all the answers, but I’d like to think that I have a decent grasp on adulting aka being a responsible, level-headed grownup. I’ve made my fair share of mistakes and I’ve also learned a lot from watching/helping others. And not to brag, but I’ve watched every episode of Law & Order: SVU and CSI Miami, so I have lots of street smarts.

I’m here to help you become a better adult.  Or at the very least, I’m going to help you get your shit together enough that you can pretend like you have this adulting thing figured out. You can expect:

  • Some tough love in the form of unsolicited advice
  • No BS how-to-guides
  • Musings/updates on my life
