A First For Everything..Even In Porn
I know it has been awhile since I have posted a blog...I have been extremely busy doing things for Teal. I have been working really hard and I have a lot of really great things going on. It blows my mind that it's been a year and a half since I started in the adult industry. Time goes by so fast as I get older.
This blog is really unorganized. It's been a long time since I sat down and just typed. Please excuse any errors as I have a lot to say in my next few blogs...
I was thinking about how my life has changed since porn...I basically did a 180 in a blink of an eye. Before porn I was a fitness/lifestyle model & a student. I was still a very busy teenager. I never had a 'regular' job like most 16-17 year olds. I just did what most teenage girls did that didn't work...FRIENDS, social networking, shopping, school, gym, tan, etc. Basically I was busy doing whatever I wanted. Lets fast forward to now...It has been 18 months since I signed with LA Direct and started making my own income. Discovering something I truly love to do has allowed me to do some pretty great things in a short amount of time. I hope it never stops.
Before reading the rest of this please remember: I do what I do because I love it. I wouldn't do anything I didn't want to do. Working hard towards your goals and making them happen is such a great feeling. Lastly, the more I do, the more I want. The cycle continues and it's amazing.
Also, keep in mind a 'porn girl' or as most say 'pornstar' doesn't just shoot scenes for work. I definitely don't shoot scenes every single day. There are a lot of other things we do on a regular basis for work...such as feature dancing, personal websites, appearances, verified call, web cam, and the list goes on. There are other things we have to do to make it all happen like get tested, go to the gym, eat right, social media, get stuff for set, memorize lines, and much more. To be in this industry you really are constantly doing something for work and you have to be able to accept that. Clearly, I have done so already.
Alright now that I have explained a porn girls lifestyle & that I love my job. I am pleased to announce something I have never done before...A year & a half later and never taken more than two days off before until now! I am finally doing it, I am taking 5 days off to go home to visit my family! I kinda think it's a big deal, taking days off for the first time ever! I know the news isnt what most of you want to hear. I am sure if I were to have said I am announcing my first anal scene or something like that you all would be stoked haha. I am just really excited to finally take the time to go home to Oregon and escape the concrete jungle for a few days to see my family.
As lots of you know I have been home twice very briefly since I started. The first time I flew home and was home for less than 24 hours. Shocking to most that I flew home with empty suit cases, bought suit cases there, filled them up, then got on a plane again the next morning. The second time I went home I drove up there because the suit cases weren't cutting it and it was Christmas. Even though the fucking snowstorm I blogged about made me miss Christmas it was still great to see my mom & dad. That trip was also really just to get more of my stuff to bring to California and get new license plates.
The other morning I woke up and decided I am going home for a few days! Now is the perfect time cause the industry is kind of on hold right now. I suggest to others in the biz they should do the same thing. Since you should not be shooting right now you should take a break and visit your families or go on a vacation. Do something for yourself.
P.S. I am not taking any sort of break from porn. I'm taking a vacation that is definitely necessary.
Alright, now I am going to get ready to go feature dance at Spearmint Rhino Rialto with Christie Stevens. If you haven't checked out my website that just recently launched you should do that too! www.tealconrad.com
I will post more blogs soon. The next few blogs will be more entertaining for you all :)
