1. anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening elsewhere, often aroused by posts seen on a social media website.
  2. “I realized I was a lifelong sufferer of FOMO”

Urban dictionary definition: The fear that if you miss a party or event you will miss out on something great.

My definition: DON’T MISS THE EVENT.

Luckily, I’m here to provide you with all things you’ve missed, in this poppin’ city of Los Angeles. My name is Shirley Ju, and I live, breathe, sleep hip-hop. Coming from the Bay, I grew up to the hyphy movement. That being said, turning up is all I know. This will be a daily recap of the dope events that I felt like I couldn’t miss, and you guys wish you were at.

I currently work at Power 106 and freelance for Variety, LA Weekly, REVOLT, AllHipHop, Okayplayer.

I have my own company Shirley Ju LLC — which encompasses everything including PR, digital marketing, A&R, management, and more. All inquiries: shirley@fomoblog.com
