Hi everyone! My name is Paige. I’ve read about these blogs but I never thought I’d be doing one. This is one first. After spending some time looking around on the Internet and doing some research, I decided to set up my domain here, and just start blogging about my life.
My life has changed so much, in such a short time! It somehow has become so exciting! lol! Not to brag or anything but I just thought it would be cool to share my life stories with you. I thought about writing in a diary/journal, but that would be boring. I’d rather start a blog and let others know about my non-mainstream life.
I just finished unpacking and am now settling into west coast living. I moved all the way from the east coast a few days ago. Times were hard for me living in Manhattan, New York. Everyday expenses are not so bad, it’s just the rent that’s sky-high crazy!
I met my boyfriend, Jay, in New York City. His work takes him traveling throughout the country. We met only two months ago. I moved into his apartment after a month because my rent was getting too high. He was scheduled to leave NYC in September to move to Oregon and asked me if I wanted to come along. I LOVE New York City, but I realized I needed a new start elsewhere, where I can afford to pay my bills! Plus, no sales tax in Oregon. So I packed what little belongings I have and we moved a week ago–traveling across country in an SUV.
My boyfriend and I are really “friends with benefits.” He wants to leave me and go off vacation traveling overseas somewhere. He has paid all expenses for our move, including buying furniture for our apartment, but now I need to make money because he says he’ll be leaving someday soon.
I have been looking for a job for weeks now–filling out online applications, saying I’m relocating–to be set up to work when I arrived in Oregon.
So far no luck.
Early this morning, while watching U.S. Open Tennis, I was surfing the Internet and discovered adult webcamming. It’s like being a stripper only in the safety of your own home (though I’ve read, some work in an offline studio). It’s pays well, looks easy enough, and I never had any problem taking off my clothes in front of total strangers. I’ve always been very comfortable with how I look nude. It only takes a few hours to set-up shop online, so….well…I went for it!
I made my debut just a few hours ago! So far, I have stripped for three guys. It was easy. The guys were nice. Another first for me!
By the way, in case you were wondering–Yes–Jay knows about me doing this. Even though we are actually friends with benefits, we are sort of boyfriend and girlfriend too (complicated relationship), so I wondered how he would take it. I didn’t want to keep it from him. But Jay, while mainly conservative, when it comes to sex, he is very liberal, and says it’s fine with him. He said I needed to find work and if this pays the bills, why not? He added as long as I am not having sex with these guys in real life he doesn’t mind. Jay has even given me tips from a male (guest) point of view.
I still want to look for “mainstream” work, for health benefits and better job security. But for now, I just hope I get steady pay for the bills I’ll have to be paying in the near future.
Jay and I are also planning on doing some traveling overseas together before he goes off on his own (He says he’s like Ernest Hemingway–the way his wife would let him venture out on his own because he’s basically a loner and always have been).
So now I have to find a place for my two Siamese kittens to stay when we go on vacation–possibly next month. Or maybe I can find a cat sitter….
My relationship with Jay has been pretty good considering we just met a couple of months ago. I’m a very good judge of character and he seemed like a really nice guy when we met–and still is. We have had our disagreements but we get along very well.
I’m very big into psychology, and love reading books and watching films about character studies. I already know a lot about human relationships and what it takes to have a good romantic one. I have very little relationship “baggage” while Jay has been burned a lot. So I’m glad I know a lot about issues in relationships and men, and my knowledge has helped in keeping us together–especially during our week long road trip across country. I’ll tell you more about that later.
