Facing FOMO

After they left, she could not escape the nagging feeling that she was missing out on a fun night with her roommates. She found it hard to complete tasks because she could not resist tapping through Snapchat stories, checking for new updates whenever she got the chance. Watching the highlights of their night through her phone screen made her feel awful, yet she felt anxious when she did not check.
