    For the last year and a half, just about the only outdoor/indoor activity that happened (to some degree) was classic car shows... Now Alberta is really opening up, I can now actually catch a live music show at a small cafe, and live music is something I missed so much

    I was mulling over with a friend about backing off a little on classic car events which I have almost become obsessive about, which have very much been almost all of my social gatherings, and taking a little more time to catch live music and other events in the creative arts world, yet doing that might take time away from being at a classic car event, but why does that really matter?

    These are decisions I made all the time in the past, where to go - if anywhere - and then multiple choices some days, and then that dreaded FOMO :rolleyes:

    But Pioneer Acres is happening this year after a one year hiatus, and finally a local night market is open again at its old location, without a fence around it and back to being free to wander around, and hopefully even some live music :)

    I guess what I'm trying to say, is that I used to go out lots, usually at least twice a week, a certain "thing" took that away, now I'm back to making choices that might not involve classic cars which seems like a weird switch for me

    I know what you mean. Oregon was the hardest locked down state in the US, and now that we're opening up, it's hard to remember what I liked doing.

    A lot of people are having this problem both those on the spectrum and those who are not. It has been remarked upon on talk shows. Just saying you are not alone. Everyone seems to be floundering a bit.
