Microsoft no more

Today was my last day at Microsoft. Several months (years?) of thinking about doing other things have ended. I am now unemployed. Handed in my badge and left building A. I stood outside for a good ten minutes looking at the building, laughing about how I couldn’t get back in even if I wanted to.

I have a few months to figure out what’s next. I’m proud of myself for doing something that scared the crap out of me.
