Hi there, I’m Sheena. I'm an Ohio born and bred creative and old-school writer who prefers the smooth flow of ink on paper over the clickity-clack of typing on a keyboard. I love travel, typewriters, and doughnuts. Get my ebook!
Excitedly, Anxiously Uncomfortable
My face turned every shade of red on the spectrum before my body broke out in a cold sweat. Everything spiraled around me as my mind tried to ignore the anxiety overcoming my entire body. It was the most uncomfortable and panicked experience of my life.
Why Kindness Matters
Maybe your plans fall through, or your relationship has finally run its course. Or you get into a fight with your best friend. Or perhaps you're just tired of receiving rejection after rejection email, fucking up at work, or fighting with your mother about having kids.
Goals: Setting Yourself Up for Success
With every new year comes resolutions made by determined people who are dead set on achieving their goals. Some of us set weight loss and fitness goals, while others focus on career growth and financial wellbeing. But despite our best intentions, a few months into the new year, our commitment wanes, and our once steadfast goals slowly become nothing more than another item on our years-long to-do list.
4 Benefits of Continued Mentorship
When we think of mentors, we often think of a senior role model who has "made it" and can help us land our dream job or grow our professional network. But the truth is, anyone can be a mentor, and mentorship extends far beyond simple professional development.
The Trouble in Trendifying Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Gen Z has made skinny jeans lame and almost single-handedly brought back wired headphones. Supermodels like Bella Hadid have made 90s fashion trendy again. Round wireframe glasses and hanging out at local coffee shops are a thing again, and as any trendy girl knows, succulents are all the rage right now.
Perfectionism: The Fine Line Between Obsessive and Productive
I organize my closet by color, then by sleeve length. All of my clothes face the same direction, and nothing is falling off hangers or sitting on the floor. The hangers are all the same cedar brown with a metal hook.
3 Ways to Enjoy a Cold and Snowy Winter Indoors
As I sit here on my couch, dressed in head-to-toe fuzzy fabrics and cocooned in the softest winter blanket, I'm in awe. I'm staring out my frost-covered window, watching the millions of delicate snowflakes swirling into a white wind before gently falling to the ground. A blanket of what I can only describe as cloudy white diamonds covers the trees. It's truly a sight to behold.
Why I'll Never Go Without a To-Do List Again
Make the bed. Check. Fold the laundry. Check. Go grocery shopping. Check. As a slightly neurotic and highly organized woman, I live for to-do lists. I use them on my phone, in Trello, on post-it notes, and even in email drafts. I wasn't hyperbolizing when I said I'm neurotic. But I'm also likely one of the most productive people you know (or don't know).
My Journey to "Writer": Part 2
In the first part of this series, you discovered my passion for chocolate and travel. We explored why I am emphatic in my love for writing and why I never considered writing as a career. I told you about how going to college forced me to decide what I wanted to do and how it crushed me when I found out that I likely wouldn't be able to live out my dream of being a communication auditor.
My Journey to "Writer": Part 1
Chocolate taster. Veterinarian. World traveler. Communication auditor. These were just a few of my "dream" careers growing up and even into college. Now don't get me wrong, I would die to be a world traveler who samples chocolates for a living, but I've settled in nicely to my life as a writer. It's certainly not as whimsical, but it suits me perfectly.
