Random selection of things I wish I knew

I wish that I knew:

How to compliment people without (worrying that I am) sounding like I'm either stalking them or hitting on them.

Why exactly sharp things are sharp. (I've vaguely figured this one for myself from first principles, but feel I'm probably missing something.)

How to tell that I'm going to be hungry an hour or so before I actually am.

What my timetable for the upcoming university term will be.

Next Saturday's lottery numbers.

Exactly how it would feel to be someone who isn't me.

A whole bunch of different languages.

Vector derivatives in polar coordinates without having to look them up.

Whether Elizabeth passed her resits.

Whether there's any mail waiting for me that warrants getting dressed and going downstairs.

How to be content that a list I've written is long anough, and that I should end it.

i know exactly what it's like to be pthalo. it's not all that exciting, i'm afraid.

if i try to think about sharp things in terms of molecules and atoms and empty space i'm not sure i understand why they're sharp either.

Yeah, but you're multiple, so you get insight into lots of different people as a free bonus. You have to imagine what it's like if there's only one of you that you know really well, and everyone else in the whole world is a total mystery.

Exactly how it would feel to be someone who isn't me.

I waste a lot of time daydreaming about this and even extending it to animals. I sit and watch my cat and wonder what it's like to be her. It's so fascinating but it ends up with me feeling weird and that everyone else is like a mysterious alien.

This makes me want to play The Sims for some reason.

Miss you, sweetie.

Whether there's any mail waiting for me that warrants getting dressed and going downstairs.

You should get dressed anyway. Just on the sheer principle of it. Getting dressed makes you feel ready to take on the world. That is all.
