Fear of missing out, also known as FOMO, is a growing part of the college experience these days. Before college, I had never heard the term, and now I hear it every day. Many of my friends have FOMO, some admit it and others cannot face the truth of it.
FOMO is when someone needs to know what those in their social circle are doing every minute of the day, and they must feel included.
“The Buried Life” is a show that follows four men who go around the world fulfilling desirable experiences they have put on their bucket list. The men from the show say, “Relying on our wits and the good will of others, we travel the globe to complete a list of things to do before we die.” These four men, whether they identify with FOMO or not, have decided to take fate into their own hands to cross important experiences items off their bucket list.
