I wish I could sing well.
I sing like a cat who someone has stepped on its tail. O.o

Re: One skill you wish you had

Magical:
Wish I could Apparate. I'm forever running around trying to avoid being late.
I wouldn't mind being an Animagus (something decent not a spider or something) or a Legilimens either.

Real life:
I wish I was taller and probably a bit more outgoing. But height is the main thing cause I can work on other aspects.

Sometimes I hope that I'll meet some wizards and right before they Obliviate me, I'll convince them to put some stretching jinxes on me

That's totally like me Most times I'd rather be in a book than in the real world, unless I'm with my friends/family. Even then sometimes I prefer to be sucked into a book

Re: One skill you wish you had

Hmm... I actually feel outgoing. It's just that sometimes that I'm too bored or tired... Hey, everybody may have a bad day, can't she?

P.S.: Magic skill I wish I could have: To create a patronus! I'd create it often, just because I would like to have some company(when I hadn't), no matter what animal it would be. Also, it's said that only very powerful wizards can cast that spell.

Re: One skill you wish you had

I'd like to be a better singer.

I would love to be a better artist-many six year olds can draw better than me.

Oh, and lastly, I would love to be a really good archer, like Legolas in Lord of the Rings. But I can't even hit darts right!

Re: One skill you wish you had

I wish I was a bit more outgoing. It's hard for me to open up to people. Really, I am surprised that I am writing this. Normally, I wouldn't It took me about two or three years before I joined the COS forum, one year before I got sorted. And there are other areas here that I haven't checked out and not sure if I would check them out.

Re: One skill you wish you had

I would like to be able to write and illustrate a children's book. I have several small grandchildren and would like to do it for them.

Re: One skill you wish you had

I wish I was thirty pounds thinner. I don't go out to eat, I seldom eat junk food, yet I am overweight. Now, I have a sluggish thyroid, so I blame that on my not being able to get thin.

Re: One skill you wish you had

I wish I was more ambitious sometimes. I have skills that other people have seen and commented favorably on during my life, (art, writing, singing, sense of humor, organizational skills, public speaking) but I don't really push any of them or work at them.

I also wish I trusted people more, like I used to when I was younger.

I wish I felt more comfortable about singing and not caring what others have said about my voice.

Re: One skill you wish you had

I'd love to have the ability to be more talkative. I'm quite shy most of the time. The thing is I'm not talkative, but I'm very confident. I'm confident in my looks, but I never want to get hurt.

Re: One skill you wish you had

Out of all skills I think i'd really want the ability to write with both hands. I've forgotten the term for what it's called but it always seemed like something that could come in handy.

It's call ambidextrous.


Like a lot of the people in this thread I wish, to a certain extent, that I were more outgoing but I find people very trying after a while; I start dwelling on the things that drive me crazy about that person, even with the people I love, and just want to be left alone to do the things I want to do without having to put up with other people looking over my shoulder or asking what I'm doing or interrupting me. There are times when I just want to be left alone.

I also wish, to a certain extent, that I were more talkative or, barring that, had an easier time conversing with people I don't know. Like with people I don't know, I find small talk trying and don't generally like to chit chat about weather and traffic and local or national events making the news...

I wish I could make friends more easily. Because I find people trying and small talk wearisome I don't often make friends quickly. Most of my friends were introduced to me through friends I already had and was more or less forced to be in their company and found that I liked the person But I could work on this myself so I wouldn't use up a wish on it.

As for my real wish, the one that I'd absolutely want, I'd like to be able to learn how to do things and excell at them very quickly. I don't mind putting in the work to learn to play piano for instance but it's a bummer that in order to become any good at it it takes years and years of practice. I'd like to improve my fine arts skill and I don't mind putting the work but it's frustrating to not feel like you're getting anywhere even when you work really hard at something which is partly where the "getting good at it fast" part comes in. I'll practice piano or art skills or writing or learn a language or whatever and I'll put in the work but I'd like some magic force to come a long every other month or so and speed up the process so I feel like I'm making more than token progress.

I wish I was better at maths. I'm terrible at maths.

Re: One skill you wish you had

I wish a had more talent in arts. I tend to envy those who paint well, or sing well or know how to dance so these are the skills I wish I was good at.
