9 to 5

This lyrics to Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” is some of the realist $#!% ever!  The movie debuted in 1980 but the lyrics are still relevant today. Just listen.   9 to 5 Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen Pour myself a cup of ambition And yawnin’, stretchin’, try to come toContinue reading “9 to 5”

The Reason I’m a Sports Fan – Shannon in Kansas City

It’s time for the NFL Playoffs.  My favorite team, the Detroit Lions didn’t make the Playoffs and my second favorite team the Kansas City Chiefs lost in the second round which ended their season.  Watching sports on TV or in person has become one of my favorite past times. Sporting events are one of onlyContinue reading “The Reason I’m a Sports Fan – Shannon in Kansas City”

Night Life Dress Code – Shannon in Kansas City

One of my new year resolutions was to practice and improve my Latin dance skills.  There is a dance club in a casino in my area that has a Latin themed night every few weeks.  I decided to go last night.  I was in a festive mood because the Kansas City Chiefs won their first roundContinue reading “Night Life Dress Code – Shannon in Kansas City”

Use Your Voice – Shannon in Kansas City

I was a child of the 1980s.  I feel blessed to have grown up in that era.  I am an only child so I may have spent more time in front of a TV than most.  A lot of my fond childhood memories  involve TV shows that were popular at the time.  One of my favorites is “TheContinue reading “Use Your Voice – Shannon in Kansas City”

Robocops – Shannon in Kansas City

I think it’s time for the U.S. to invest in technology to make robotic police officers.  In the 80s and 90s there was a movie franchise called Robocop that was very popular.  At the time it seemed far fetched and a science fiction fantasy but I think that in the near future robotic law enforcement couldContinue reading “Robocops – Shannon in Kansas City”

War Room – Shannon in Kansas City

I’m off from work for a week for Holiday vacation.  One of my plans for my break is to catch up on a few movies that I’ve been wanting to see.  One of those movies is “War Room” which  I watched last night on Movies on Demand. The film was pretty good but I didn’t like itContinue reading “War Room – Shannon in Kansas City”

The Crusade for Masculinity – Shannon in Kansas City

Masculinity is hard to find in 2015.  I think that it is a little distorted and attached to some negative connotations.  When I think of ideal masculinity I think of leadership, kindness, protection and one that provides.  Regardless of what we are made to believe I think that that is what women want from theContinue reading “The Crusade for Masculinity – Shannon in Kansas City”

The Crusade for Femininity

I love femininity and I love women.  I enjoy being a woman and I don’t ever remember a time when I did not delight in feminine interests such as make up and hair care products.  I’m what you would call a girls girl.  I think that femininity is something to be admired and respected.  Unfortunately,Continue reading “The Crusade for Femininity”

I started writing in my first diary when I was in the third grade.  I haveContinue reading “A Bit About Me”

Someone to Depend on

There are very few people that you can rely on in life.  In the 21st century many of the people that we cross paths with, befriend or fall in love with are often too involved with themselves to really care about anyone else.  They may be cute, great dancers or fun at parties and there isContinue reading “Someone to Depend on”
