    I'd love to be able to paint! I can draw OK, but painting is usually a struggle. I'm gonna try and teach myself a bit over the summer :yes:

    More self-confidence would also be a really good thing!

    It's pathetic how wishy-washy and feeble people's dream skills are. "I want to be more social" "I want to be able to play the guitar" "I want to speak a second language".


    I want to be able to fly and breathe fire and shoot lazers out of my nipples.

    ability not to care or overthink
    the world might be a more fun place if so
    I echo this. I just wish I could 'switch off' sometimes,I care about things and worry about things so much it drives me mad and really makes the world a not very fun place to inhabit at times.

    And some self confidence would be great.

    What real life skill do you wish you had but don't?

    For me it's organisation and being able to make small talk I can do it, it just feels incredibly awkward :lol:
    When I first read the title, I thought of the life skills in Sims 3.
    I think I would like to be more open, especially to my parents (long story) and to avoid being influenced easily.
