I was part of a RIF 2 months ago. First time in my 36 working years. I had big ideas about going riding more often, spending lots of quality time in Moab, summer trip to Alaska, ... then planned to switch career track to something quite different and more manual work (less software, more hardware).

Then I talked to some former co-workers from a decade ago. Been working with them since the day after the RIF non-stop, and now this week traveling for 2 weeks to the east coast for 2 certification trainings.

Enjoy your time off while you can and hope the checks resume in an acceptable time after you first have some fun and maybe renew your perspective, maybe try something different that you really like.

Maybe I will get some time this summer or fall to follow my own advice/wishes :-)
