    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:

    Being tall.

    I kid, I kid.

    Seriously though I'd like to be successful with the opposite sex, or play the piano.

    Yes mine would be play a musical instrument or write songs. But then again I wouldn't mind having a little more common sense than I do have, it sometimes gets rather worrying :/

    I'm with you on the point about small talk. I hate speaking to people unless there's a clear purpose, but it is needed for those awkward one-on-one situations, especially on a train/bus where there is no escape.

    Yes. I sometimes think that I lack common sense Common sense is really not that common.

    Or walking home after school :shock: I just hate it. After a while it turns into silence....
