Welcome to SiNes of Life

Episode 29! Have you been dying to know what emojis we love to use??! Well, today’s your lucky day, because we totally discuss that on this episode. And if you hate emojis, maybe you can hop on the “Explainicon” bandwagon with our producer Erin (who is smiling happily simply at the thought of this). Then we talk about taking the MBTI test when we were younger (and Jenn contradicts herself yet again {insert crying/laughing emoji here}). THEN we give a review for an R-rated movie, so send the kiddos away. Happy listening, friends, and have a great summer!

Welcome to this Bit of Life! On this mini-episode, we talk about crying. Sound like a bummer? Never! Tune in, then let us know how you feel about crying.

Welcome to this Bit of Life! Do you feel lonely easily? Does social media affect your loneliness? Tune in to this mini-episode to hear Jenn and Elisa discuss!

Here’s episode 28! Today we welcome second-time special guest Emily Helquist. We give a quick review of what the Myers Briggs letters mean, then spend some nerdy but fun time discussing whether there should be a fifth category. Emily also lays some brilliant insight on us regarding Thinking/Feeling, AND we all share our drinks and winks.

Welcome to this Bit of Life! On this mini-episode, we talk about stress and the ways in which different personality types respond to stress, and we also look at whether or not that’s connected to the way we respond to joy.

Welcome to this Bit of Life! On this mini-episode, we talk about surprises and Elisa will try to convince Jenn that nobody actually likes them.

Welcome to this Bit of Life! On this mini-episode, we talk about sleep and how our sleep style affects our schedules.

Take the Power of When quiz, and also listen to the Entreleadership podcast interview with Shawn Stevenson about changing your sleep habits. (Interview begins around 36:50) All links available at

Welcome to this Bit of Life! On this mini-episode, we talk about birthdays and goal-setting.

Here’s episode 27! On this episode we welcome Becki and Kristie and talk about life as an ISTJ (or whether or not Kristie even is one), and we start to dive into the topic of the Enneagram.

Becki reommended The Greatest Showman movie and soundtrack as well as her favorite drink, the Moscow Mule.

Kristie let us in on the wonderful secret of the TKB Deli and Bakery, off the I-10 in Indio, which will make your trips between Phoenix and Los Angeles much less dreary. Also, for further study on the Enneagram, she recommended the book The Road Back to You by Ian Cron and Suzanne Stabile.

Elisa wants you to buy glasses through Zenni Optical (especially if you’re a mom or anyone who’s short on time or cash). She thinks you should check out Superstition Meadery if you’re in AZ.

Jenn loves Plum Paper Planners for all your customizable planner needs. Also, as a general connoisseur of cider, she would particularly like to recommend ACE Pear Cider.

Welcome to episode 26! On this episode we talk about which personalities pair most closely together, and we also discuss humor and why we laugh. Also, some podcasts keep background music going the whole time, but here at SiNes of Life, we prefer the adorable sounds of a SoL newborn. (#sorrynotsorry for the cooing in the background.)

Please don’t waste time on terrible comedians. Instead, watch Jim Gaffigan, Nate Bargatze, John Mulaney, Mike Birbiglia, Ryan Hamilton, Sebastian Maniscalco, imomsohard, and Michael McIntyre.

Also, please don’t waste time on this terrible book.

Elisa wants you to read these Two Monks posts in hopes that you’ll laugh until you cry like she did.

Jenn was converted to a love of pumpkin-y things by this pumpkin cider and she hopes you will be too.
