If you had six months of free time between college graduation and your first job, what would you do during it?

Right now I have the great opportunity of having the months between January and June completely free as I allocated this time to travel and explore between college graduation and my first job. However, travel is looking unlikely due to the pandemic. I'd like to try and find a few things to do that are either helpful for professional/personal development, meaningful or fulfilling, or something generally interesting (something with social capital). Right now, I'm looking at doing some bike trips, reading a book a week, taking cooking classes, and finding some volunteer opportunities. Just trying to brainstorm ideas, and I'd love to hear what you would do if you were in my shoes! Other interests: investing, entrepreneurship, book recommendations! #gapyear #gapsemester #postcollege
