I was poached internally - how to mitigate the fallout?

I was approached by the manager of a different department than the one I work in (same company). She asked me about my interest in a position in her department. I hadn't considered it previously, but after doing more research, I decided that it would be a great move for me, as I'll be making quite a bit more money than I'm making now and it's a fantastic growth opportunity.

Neither a borrower nor a lender be...or something

I'm feeling guilty about a personal monetary transaction I made with my boss, that ended up being way in my favor by accident (miscalculation on my part). He said he was fine with it at the time, should I try to make amends anyway or just leave it? [more inside]

Miserable with a future, or on hold but with less misery?

I have almost certainly won an eighteen thousand dollar award to do my Master's degree, but every day I find myself semi-wishing that I don't win it so that I don't have to do my Master's. Do I suck it up and advance my career, or turn down more money than I make in two years and end up working at the mall? [more inside]
