Good news in the midst of a fever

The coming weekend has ushered in good news! My termination date at work has been announced. This may sound like bad news to some, however it means a significant payout and a chance to start my life over afresh. I have been working this mindnumbing job for 5 years now and finally change is afoot...
What shall I do? I'm due to receive around $20,000 redundancy compensation and I need to decide what direction to head from there. I'm leaning towards an overseas journey at the moment, and possibly putting some money towards a deposit on a small 1 bedroom appartment. That way I won't have that empty, fallen behind feeling that so many people experience when they return from abroad.
At least having all these choices truely cements the realization that I am actually going to "break on through" as Jim Morrison put it, to something new. The other side. How exciting!
In other, not so exciting news - I have a terrible head cold. Nose chaffing, lungs wheezing, body aching... Ahhhh, the dubious joys of mortality.
