Do you ever have FOMO?

article image placeholderUploaded by @Noalily
So at Berkeley, we have football games and before the games, everybody parties together and you go to pre games, and it's super fun. And I have had so much fun at all of them. But I came home from Thanksgiving break with the intention that I was not doing game day. It's our last game day, and I don't care. I'm done. I'm game day to out. And for once, I do not feel any FOMO

Currently experiencing the joy of missing out

And I know the 13 came up, but I had no need to wait from the 8th and just go ahead and get the 13. I just like. But before I would have been up to date is what I'm saying. I have tech FOMO. That's what I'm trying to say, but social FOMO. I don't even know what's going on socially or even don't pay much attention to what's happening in terms of news in the greater world

And you're like, what is this lying for? Experienced that many times. But I've also experienced the circumstance of being in and apart and with and wishing that I just was not there because ultimately, what it is I'm experiencing is very superficial. It's just not what either I anticipated or it's not what people say it is out. Yeah, I do understand FOMO. I think part of it is baked into our culture

Yo, what's up, Noah? It's a very interesting discussion. I guess I try to kind of think of this kind of stuff and FOMO and stuff like that in the realm of, like, what I can control, because if I can't go to an event for some concrete, obvious reason, like, say, I'm out of town and there's physically no way for me to get there, then I try not to think too heavily about it

And I don't need to go to everyone because I'll see the same people. It'll be the same songs, which is really fun, but I also know to put me first and like, if I have work to do, I know that I'm really not at all missing anything. So it's kind of soothing. I can just go on with my life, and if I choose to do something fun, it's great

So that overrides the fear of missing out. That's what comes from putting your dreams first is like you might not get to go on as many vacations. And that's really the thing I have fear of missing out on most is like, nice relaxing vacations. Whereas like, I'm not really a party person per se, but I do love nice vacations. And so when I do see people doing those kinds of things, I have FOMO
