Here's some info about me, for those of you who are interested in
that sort of thing! My name is Shannon Courtney. I was born on July 26, 1979. I'm from
Northeastern New Jersey. Don't ask what my exit is, because the Turnpike doesn't run
through my backyard
If you want to know what I look like, you can visit the first website I ever created. Our Memories, A Photo Retrospective is a compilation of pictures from my 4 years of high school. I created the site so that my friends and I would always have those pictures and memories nearby, even if we were at colleges hundreds of miles apart. I'll give you a hint as to how to find out which girl is me: I'm usually a redhead. Usually.
I attend Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I'm majoring in Journalism. I'm also majoring in Criminology, however that will likely change. I've switched my double from PR, to management to Criminology in one short year. What's one more change? Sure, it'll annoy my advisor, but that's my job.
I've been working as Webmaster/Director of Advertising & Marketing (fancy title, huh?) for an Import/Export company for 2 years.
Since you've found this page, you've visited my other sites, The Manning Building and The Florencia Lozano Homepage.
I've watched One Life to Live and Another World for about 12 years each. I've watched General Hospital on and off for about 7 years.

I love more or less all types of music. My favorite singer is Sarah McLachlan, who's songs are frequently used on One Life to Live. (ie; "Fumbling Towards Ecstacy--K/C's 1st love scene, "Witness", during Téa/Andrew's make-out session, and most recently, "I Love You", during Blair/Max's scenes in the Wine cellar.)
My taste basically falls in the "Lilith Fair" performers range. I regularly listen to Sarah, Paula Cole, Fiona Apple, Julianna Hatfield, Janis Ian and Meredith Brooks. I also love Annie Lennox, The Bangles, Belinda Carlisle and Madonna. (I was a late '80s kid, what can I say?)
As for the guys, I love Richard Marx, Bryan Adams, Live, the Goo Goo Dolls, and Matchbox 20. I'm also a huge Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac and Jefferson Airplane fan.
I love dance music, and regualarly play 'Jock Jams' and 'Dance Mix USA' in my car.
So many movies, so little time. Here's a run down of the owns I own; should give you a pretty good idea about my taste!

I'm a huge sports fan. I
love the New York Knicks, even though they're "thugs" and
"losers" as some Chicago Bulls fans at MU informed me. I love the
New York Mets, which they don't make easy, believe me. My father's a Yankees fan, so my
life is especially hard
I would love to say I drive a BMW, but I don't. My first car ever was a 1987 Chevy Nova with 76,004 miles on it. I sold it with 82,004 miles on it 11 months after I got it. (No lie, I put exactly 6,000 miles on it. Very weird, isn't it?)
This May, I bought my very first new car, a 1998 Mazda Protege. This is my (realistic) dream car. I won't *officially* own it until I'm 23, but I love knowing that I'm doing this on my own, without help from my parents. I'm basically a slave to the bank and my insurance agent for the next 5 years, but as my parents keep reminding me, it's worth it.
The most arbitrary information about me. Be afraid. Be very, very afraid.
I read Tarot Cards.
Coca-Cola, not Pepsi.
My favorite meal is Carne Asada (Steak with Peppers and Onions)
Burger King, not McDonald's.
I love Cookies and Cream ice cream, any brand but Breyers. All-natural is NOT in my vocabulary.
Order out. Just Say 'NO' to bad dorm food.
Favorite Candy: Starbursts
Domino's, not Pizza Hut.
Favorite Colors: Teal, Blue, Red, Black
