Things I wish were different

I wish that we could all get up whenever we wanted, work our 7 or 8 hours or go to school, instead of following someone else's idea of when school/work should start.

I wish that school were not about tests and standards, but were actually about exploring and learning new things and helping kids find their passion in life.

I wish that work were the same way. I wish that it was about results instead of about hours that were put in.

I wish I could work from home.

I wish that there weren't poverty, that everyone had the same opportunities available to them.

I wish that our government were open and honest and that the things that they said weren't carefully scripted bits of PR.

I wish I felt listened to.

Not too much to ask for, really.
