So... I moved down to South Florida when I was 18, right out of high school. It wasn't such a big deal for me at the time because my parents helped me plan the move and enrolled me into college without me having to do anything. But 15 years later, I just accepted a position in another state, and it looks like I'm going to be leaving beautiful South Florida by the end of July. I've already got my Volkswagen Bus in storage, and I'll be moving my Pontiac Fiero into storage shortly.

I will be submitting my resignation to the Miami Dolphins football team as soon as I'm done with this post. I've worked here for almost 6 years now, and have loved every minute of it. I've made some great friends here, met some amazing people, and learned a lot of new skills. It really is everything I could have possibly imagined it would be. The best way I can describe it is being stuck on a cruise ship with a bunch of celebrities and cheerleaders... but then also having to work ridiculously long hours (but I'm cool with that). Additionally, I'll also be giving up my seperate NFL position as an NFL photographer during game-day, unless I can make an arrangement with the team in the new state that I will be moving to.

In any case, I'll be here as usual for the next couple of weeks, but after June, I'll probably be not be on here very much, and for a little while, I might not be on here months at a time.

I've decided to pursue a dream of mine that I've had for a very long time, and I was lucky enough to get my foot in the door of the industry... so I have to make the jump.


In any case... suffice it to say that I'm being a ***** and nervous about moving. I have only a little equity in my home, so I'll probably rent it out to someone down here, and then lease an apartment or town-house after I move. I need some Boonie-style support...


Thanks guys,

Hey man,

It's tough to jump from a stable situation into "the great unknown"
*spooky hands*

But it's a good thing.
I hope the best for you during this 'shift'.

Keep your contacts open from your previous job.. Linked in and some other methods.

Small world, know what i mean?


It's always agood idea to try to augment yourself a little during a transitionary process - leave at least some "negative" aspects of yourself behind, if ya can... things you may have excused yourself for, or accepted as part of your "persona"...

When I "pulled a Boonie", it was rough for about a year, because the ledge I jumped to wasn't the best place to land... but I managed to find my way. You will, too. Awesome times ahead.


GOOD LUCK

Best of luck to you!!

Your old job sounds like a dream, this new adventure must be something else!! If it's your passion, you'll do fine!!

Did you ever meet Hines Ward of the Steelers??? He's my most favorite football player!! lol

If you need extra moral support, my pm's are open anytime.

I will tell you this, it seems to be working out for me.
I will refrain from saying it was all for the better, as I am still trying to find my place here.
But I think I am a stronger person for throwing myself out of my bubble and into a much bigger world.
It is definatly not more comfortable, but I believe it is far more healthy for my growth as a person.
I think in the end, it will prove itself to be a wise desision.

And I gotta' give credit where it is due; This place really gave me encouragement to just follow my best instinct & what I felt.
It really did help.

I went for it and I did it.
I'm not sorry.

I wish you the very best and encourage you to do/go what/where your head & heart leads you.
And keep your head up.
Every new thing is a learning thing.

The die'n part is easy, everybody does it. But living life to it's fullest, very few ever do. Go for it.

Good luck in your new position. And as someone already asked, just what state are you headed to?

I really can’t recommend renting your place as an absentee landlord. To many things can go wrong while you are away. It’s hard enough being a landlord when you are in the same town.

But good luck with both.

I'm just thinking how many situations you can apply that too......."He pulled a real Munson." ~ Kingpin

To hang out with the football team and living near the ocean, the nice house, wow it really must be a calling to get you to go. You know yourself, you will do well.

But if he uses a property management firm they'll handle all the day to day stuff, and just cut him a check every month. Besides with FL's real estate market right now, he might not sell it in a reasonable timeframe.

Anyway, Todd, good luck.
