I wish I had read Pride and Prejudice last month so as not to cause frustration for anyone else who did.
I wish the maintenance department on campus didn’t get so bent out of shape over bikes on the lawn next to our apartment.
I wish of all the books on our shelves that we own, that I would have more of them read than unread.
