FOMO - Fear Of Missing Out
I frequently have FOMO...and for various reasons. Some of these FOMO episodes are self-induced and others aren't. These are the things that give me FOMO...
1. Not being a beer drinker
I hear about all sorts of fun things like beer fests and beer tastings but I hate beer so I can't participate. Also, there's something about a cold beer that just says "summer". I have extreme FOMO with this. If beer wasn't just so gross...
2. Not having a "kitschy"decor taste
I love seeing all sorts of cool and kitschy decor in people's homes...especially kitchens. But I couldn't really ever incorporate them into my own living space.
3. Being a planner
I'm not a spontaneous, spur of the moment person. I have FOMO when plans to go and do fun things just happen and for whatever reason I can't commit. It takes a lot for me to say "yes" to things.
4. Not having a hobby
I am interested in lots of things but I wouldn't call any of them really a hobby. I sing, I read, I wog and I talk to my dog in weird voices. None of these things really qualify as a hobby. I wish I was a hobby-er that was part of a larger network like a scrapbooker or a baker or a photographer. Maybe I just need a hobby? I used to have normal hobbies: jewelry making, sewing, even quilting at one point. Now? Nothing.
5. Not having a boat
I suffer from severe FOMO when I see people post fun pictures of themselves on boats in the summer. This is one of the main reasons that M and I want to buy a boat eventually. So I will have boat FOMO no more!
Do you have FOMO about anything? Do share!!!
