We went to Chicago for our 4 year anniversary! | Deep Dish Pizza, Lincoln Park Zoo, 360 Chicago TILT

We always like to travel for our anniversaries and birthdays, and for our 4 year anniversary, we went to Chicago! This was Addison’s first time in Chicago, but my third time. We checked out Gino’s East and Lou Malnati’s for deep dish pizza, Lincoln Park Zoo, boba vending machine Mycha at Block 37, 360 Chicago and their TILT ride, Starbucks Reserve Roastery (biggest in the world with 5 floors!), shopping on the Magnificent Mile, Portillo’s, Millennium Park and the Bean, and Navy Pier! For the day of our 4 year anniversary, we had boba, got a massage, and went to a one Michelin star restaurant, Sepia! AMAZING experience!

Addison Chen and I have been together for four years ever since that fateful first date on July 20, 2017! We went to celebrate our four year anniversary in Chicago this year! We also recorded a podcast episode reflecting, for both on our own accounts and moving forward! We’ve gone through a lot like living together, having cats together, and buying a condo together!

DAY IN THE LIFE OF A TECH CONSULTANT | Addison Chen as an Accenture Workday Integrations Consultant

What’s better of a household with two technology consultants than a vlog of what a technical consultant does compared to what I do as a functional consultant?

I follow along in Addison Chen’s day 73 Vogue questions style asking the questions you have about how it’s like as a Workday Integrations Consultant at Accenture! This not indicative of how every technical consultant, Workday Integrations consultant, or even Accenture employee does on a daily basis as all of that varies by client, project, role, and firm, but at least this would give you a snapshot of how it would be!

I also found it pretty interesting myself because I always knew what he was doing, but I never truly followed his day to day until now. Functional vs. Technical is very different!

This is Our Experience as Asian Americans | Stop Racism | CHATTING WITH CHRISTINE

Thank you, Addison Chen, Derek Mei, and Christy Joonie Park!

With what’s going on with the Asian American community, it saddens us to hear all of the harassment and assaults aimed at the Asian American Pacific Islander community. We wanted to bring to light about our own experiences as Asian Americans for you to learn about how it’s like living in the US, the prejudices and racism we experienced, the “model minority” myth, and how we feel on where we belong. We do not represent the entire Asian American population, but these are our personal experiences as Asian Americans!

What YOU Should Know After Graduation: Personal Finance, Dating, & Friendship

Full podcast episode here: https://linktr.ee/christinepodcast

I had friends stay over with me not too long ago, and they happened to be YouTubers as well! I sat down with my boyfriend, Addison Chen, The Handoff with Derek Mei, and his girlfriend, Christy Joonie Park. We all graduated 3-4 years ago and some of us are already working full time, some of us are in grad school or even optometry school, and we come from different walks of life. With many college students graduating soon in May, I thought this would be perfect!

I GIVE MY BOYFRIEND A HAIRCUT: So How Much Does He Know About Me?

I’ve been cutting Addison’s hair a lot due to the pandemic, but at a certain point, I got tired, so he tried cutting it himself. He actually cut a BIT too much at one point on the side of his head, but I was like why don’t I do it BUT let’s make a video out of it where we see how much he knows about me! It’s actually intended to ask these questions in a fun way so you can learn a little bit more about me!

For each time he got it right, he would get one minute of haircut (30 seconds if partially right), and for each time he got it wrong, I would just keep asking questions about me. How well do you think he did and how was the haircut?

Being Pet Parents as Young Working Professionals | CHATTING WITH CHRISTINE

Another fun and chill episode with Sally Chen, Michelle Lam, and Addison Chen! We talked about how our experiences were owning pets from a young age and how that evolved in college and as young working professionals, especially with our significant others! Owning pets is a responsibility, and you should always do your research before getting a pet or a specific species whether it be a dog, cat, rabbit, or hamster.

Addison Chen: Technology Consultant, Medium Writer, & My Boyfriend! | TECHNOLOGY PROFESSIONALS

New podcast episode is up!

You guys see him on my YouTube channel and on my podcast a lot! I finally interview my boyfriend, Addison Chen! He is also a technology consultant at Accenture, but what’s interesting is despite both of us being Chinese Americans born and raised in New York, our journeys becoming technology consultants at Accenture have been vastly different. He studied at SUNY Albany, a state university in New York with a degree in computer science and math, and entered the workforce with no internships or work experience as an IT consultant at a small firm (less than 5 people!) in New York City and then later moved into Accenture (over 50K people!). He also writes Medium articles on the side about coding and other topics like real estate!

FUN FACT: We met on Coffee Meets Bagel because I saw his job title said he was a technology consultant. Our first two hours texting each other were literally about computer science and coding! A couple that codes together stays together.
