Heres what happened since yesterday.

Wake up, talk with the new company, get the offer (5k less than Im making now). Email back asking questions (start date, how long I have to accept, etc). Contacted my old Manager, and saw that he was now at Adobe. He tells me he may have some really exciting opportunities for me, where I could work remote. When I informed him of my offer, he basically says "Well I can offer you 100% work remotely and way more salary." But then didn't hear back after that. Disney says they are slowed down and wont begin my next process until next week at the earliest.

Tell my manager at IBM that I am leaving for outside opportunities. Put in my official 2 weeks notice. Talk with another old manager, who basically is with a bunch of my old coworkers at a new company, doing updated versions of everything I've been working on for 8 years: right up my alley. Make plans to talk with them, they say I can work fully remote if I work there.

Talk with Blizzard. Was really awesome, their phone service is narrated by Deckard Cain, explain the situation and how I have an offer waiting, but I am really intrigued by the opportunity at Blizzard because it would be a dream company to work for. She says it may help push it through faster.

Talk with the original company I got the offer from, they asked why I was curious about how long I had to sign, I explained how I had other opportunities I was still exploring and while I really liked their company, these were kind of possibilities that were unique. He asked if there was anything they can do with the offer package to make me accept right away. I told him I liked what they were offering, but that Disney is Disney, the other company was offering me tons more money, and that I didn't expect them to be able to match that offer. He again asks if theres anything he can do to make me sign right now... so I asked if he could match my current salary. Its end of day for him so he says he will see what he can do, but if he can get that match would I be willing to sign right away? I say yes.

Phew. Sit on it all night, agonizing. Do I take the safe, but also pretty awesome opportunity that is right there, or do I hold out for potential bigger payout? Am I selling myself short? One of my friends thinks so, that I am in demand and I can get more. But I just got done going through weeks of failed interviews, so its not as easy. With kids and a family, I dont think I have the luxury to really get greedy. The only bad choice I can make is to hold out and then end up with nothing. Mentally plan to take the offer even if they can't match.

Next day, the other company that wants me to work remote contacts me. Says theres no immediate position for me, but would like to consider me for full time down the road, or as a consultant in the next few months if they manage to acquire Home Depot. Home Depot, for what its worth, is a current customer of mine at IBM that is looking for a new solution, and is possibly migrating to this other company. They are trying to negotiate gaining the source code, and if they can do that I might have a good shot at consulting for them to get things going. Anyway, its clear they're not going to move at a pace to counter the existing offer.

Talk with the guy offering me the position, he says they agreed to match my salary that I am making now (5k increase from the original offer). I agree that this works for me, and that I will honor my word, and have just signed and sent in my acceptance letter.

So, looks like my fate is sealed. Im excited, but now may have to live with the regret of what could have been.

Technically I start on the 23rd (negotiated to start after Evo weekend since Im going for sat/sunday this year) so I have some time, but its pretty shitty to back out after signing the offer letter, even if its completely legal.

So yeah. Been a big week for me.

Played One Night Ultimate Werewolf with the family last night. Charlie played with us... he tried so hard to be clever lol. He Drunked into Minion (and peeked because he didnt know any better), and when we asked what he was, he said "Oh, just a regular werewolf." And we were all like, "wtf you shouldn't tell us that" and he froze. But in actuality, he was right with his play. hahaha

I bought the boxed set of One Night Ultimate werewolf to play with my family, they had a blast. My grandma didn't quite get the game, often messing up roles, telling us info that proved she was werewolf, and once even voted for the other werewolf (she was one too) to break the tie that lost them the game. My favorite was the time she was troublemaker, and wouldn't divulge any info about her role, then celebrated post game that nobody figured out she was the troublemaker so she must have done good lol.

Heres the best. First game, my brother says "I am seer, and I center peeked 2 werewolves." We called bullshit, and voted him; he was werewolf. Last game of the night, my brother says "I am seer and I center peeked 2 werewolves. Seriously, again. I know nobody will believe me." I actually did believe him, he said "If it didn't work the first time would I try it again?!?" 2 people voted him out instead of voting right like we agreed. He was seer and there was 2 werewolves in the center lol.

My dad was the best werewolf, 100% winrate as wolf.

Was a lot of fun, for sure. The game is so much better at a fast paced 5 minute to discuss rather than our 36 hour heavily dissecting every possible action. You can get away more when theres a time limit to discuss thats minutes long.

Pledged to invest 2,500 on fig.co for fantasy strike today, I played it at the PSX experience last december, and last weekend at evo, and it was night and day in graphics; and they still have more improvement coming. I think I can make my money back easy on that one. Monique got mad at me though, lol. Oh well. I think its a decent investment. 110k copies sold to make my money back, 220k copies sold to double my money to 5k. Thats so easy to hit.
