Microsoft, here I come

Accepted: 1 Microsoft job offer

Money and career prospects will have to wait a little longer. Greater creative freedom it is! Guess I should return the 2006 Quicken now. I have been trying out both MS Money and Quicken for the past month (Money was a 90-day free download and Quicken has a 60-day money back guarantee so it wasn't costing me anything) and I like different features of each but I feel I should show some solidarity to my new employer. Technically, I don't start until the 4th week of September because I have to give at least two weeks of notice here and then I am taking 1 week off to go roadtripping to California. Did I make the right decision? I am impulsive more often than not and sometimes I choose jobs the same way I choose men or shoes which I am not sure is the best way. Decisions based on impulse tend to be short love affairs. Foreshadowing perhaps? I hope not.

Thank you both. NYC, I have heard the same thing too and it was one of my reasons for picking their offer over the others. After years of dealing with corporate crap it'd be a nice change.
