Mental Health and Medications

I’ve been gone for a while but I’ll hopefully come back soon. Some stuff happened in my everyday life that’s kept me super busy and I haven’t been blogging like I should. But this is something that needed to be put down. For the last 2.5-3 months, I’ve been on new medications. I had resisted […]

The Diva Cup

This is going to be a bit of a TMI blog post, but I feel compelled to wax poetic about the silicone shot glass between my legs. The first time I heard about a Diva Cup, one of my writer friends was raving about it on her livejournal and I was so confused. Why would […]

To Blog Post or Not To Blog Post?

I believe that writers have a responsibility to share their truth and life experiences with their readers. Herman Melville wrote long sections of whaling history into Moby Dick and James Joyce made inside jokes in dead languages. Nowadays, we tend to write blogs, which leaves our works open for only the truly relevant information. But […]

Self-Compassion

One of my biggest weaknesses is being able to show myself compassion. I’m almost delusional in my readiness to brush off a friend’s faults, but I’ll bully myself for the same ones. I try to change my inner hatred but I always end up in the same place. I refuse to believe that a friend […]

A Career in Two Parts

Lately, I’ve stopped thinking of my writing career and my web development career as two different careers. I’m starting to think of them as a single career with two different parts that are often intertwined. Every website I build has little bits of information built in for me to use. I know more about eye […]

Master of None

My parents can attest that I’ve had the drive to write since I was very small. But that wasn’t the only drive I had, even back then. My first book was about bunnies and was written and drawn on construction paper then stapled together and hidden away in my mom’s underwear drawer for 20+ years. […]

How I Handle Romantic Rejection

The other day, I gave a guy my number. It took a lot of courage to do that. As I braced myself for the rejection that I was certain I’d get in response to his receiving my phone number, I got to thinking about the one last time I gave a guy my number unprompted. […]

Write What You Know When You Don’t Know Shit

I am a writer who doesn’t know shit. I’ve never been out of Texas. I haven’t even been in the best parts of Texas. I get up, go to work, go home, go to sleep. I’m the most boring person I think anyone could ever meet. I’m so boring, in fact, that I have to […]

New Website Design

I’m sure it’s been noticed that my site is changing. Well, I thought I’d take a few minutes to go over the process here and the reasons for the changes. It’s like a case study but more shoujo! First off, the Name. I realized that no one googles Sheena Bandy unless they already know about […]

Mental Health and Writing

Last weekend, my mom asked me if I’m putting pressure on myself to write when I don’t want to. I tried to explain to her why I make myself write blog posts and drabbles throughout the week and I didn’t do a very good job of it. Well, I came up with a better answer […]
