This essay rings so true! I think we introverts enjoy our own company so much that it takes a pretty good event to make us want to do something else. In any case, I have less FOMO as I've gotten older and I appreciate that. Thanks me *pats self on back*

Might I recommend the book Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Luis Zafron, particularly if one is a book lover? It has 4.5 stars with 22k+ reviews and is one of my faves. It involves the owner's son of a Barcelona antique book store who starts discovering that all the books by a certain author are being hunted down and destroyed. The book involves a bit of mystery and romance and has this unusual creepy gothic tone (without being scary). It's a beauty.
