Congratulations! It will be 6 months for me tomorrow since I did the same. Feeling when walking out the Megacorp door is indescribable. Enjoy your retirement!

Congratulations mdlearth! 10 months of fire for me from my crazy tech sales job and its been awesome especially with the market gains during my first year. I was only looking for 5-7% returns so I got lucky. Ill have a virtual lunch beer with you as we hope for another year of solid stock market returns. Cheers!

I'm going to add myself to the Class of 2019. I joined this site in late 2015, thinking I was a year or two away...but we had a few OMY's to add.

I left my company in June but they asked me to stay on remotely in a consulting role. Initially it was about 10-15 hours a week, but over the last few months I'm averaging 3-5 hours a week - which to me is a win/win - it's the easiest "work", that I've done...pays the grocery bills etc. and they maintained my health benefits for another year.

So basically, I'm 99% retired, having relocated to coastal North Carolina...and enjoying all my free time - and my health is better as I'm golfing, playing pickleball, going to the gym, running, walking, etc.

No November dates out of 56 folks. June and December by far the most popular months.

Can I join? I lost my job end of September and planned to find another job but DH told me this weekend that I do not have to get another job. I’m going to help him a little with his business a few hours a week but I’m officially out of the corporate 8-5 world!

I suppose I need to be added to the Class of 2019 as well. I lost my job with Mega Corp in June 2019 and took some time off. Fortunately our financial position has allowed me the flexibility to make the decision that I am not going to return to work. I have throughly enjoyed these last 7 months doing a fair amount of traveling and working around the house. No more OMY for me. Congrats to all that made it to FIRE and to those working diligently in the pursuit.
