You Sing I Write Adventures: August Recap

Earlier this summer, I wrote a post titled "A Day In the Life with Annie Reuter" after my friend Monica said she wanted to read more about my music adventures. Since then, I received an overwhelming response from readers requesting weekly updates. While my daily life isn't THAT exciting, I've been trying my best to provide monthly recaps. If there is anything specific you'd like to know, be sure to let me know in the comments!

August saw major life changes as I took the leap and moved to Brooklyn with two friends. When it used to take me more than an hour to commute to NYC for a show, I now have five concert venues within walking distance! As luck would have it, since the move my freelance work has picked up. I'll try my best to update the blog on a daily basis, but if I slack off please forgive me!

You can keep up with my apartment life on Busted Halo where my roommates and I blog for "Girls Meet God." Each week we reveal what it's like for three girls with different backgrounds and faiths to live together. Being the token Catholic girl, I've already learned so much about the Jewish faith and what it means to keep Kosher. Read all about it here.

In addition to exploring religion, I've continued writing for Lemondrop where I post articles that explore my dating life (eeek!) and find out love advice from other women. Most recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing Pat Benatar! A few days later, I attended her concert at Nokia Theater and was truly blown away. The way she interacted with the crowd was incredibly enjoyable and it was easy to see the love between her and guitarist husband of 29 years, Neil Giraldo. Whether it was Giraldo telling the audience the story behind "I Don't Want to Be Your Friend, I Just Want to Be Your Lover" (Benatar had a dream he cheated on her), or Benatar confessing her least favorite song to perform, ("Hit Me With Your Best Shot"), they had everyone's undivided attention.

Witnessing Benatar live was a concert experience like no other. A rock icon and inspiration to women everywhere, I never dreamed I'd interview and watch such a phenomenal artist live. It's moments like these that deepen my passion and determination to continue a career as a music journalist. I can't wait to share with you my future adventures!
