Study Finds Two-Thirds of British Women Are Completely Bored With Their Lives

What Do You Wish You Could Do — Right This Second?

Technological distractions might leave us with less time to daydream, but that doesn't keep women from trying. In a survey that determined two-thirds of British women are completely bored with their lives, a very open-ended question spurred lots of fantasies. When asked, "what do you wish you could do," women provided these top-10 responses. Check them out below.

  1. Go to an airport and get the next available flight to anywhere 
  2. Emigrate
  3. Tell people what they really think
  4. Hand in their notice without another job to go to
  5. Have a dramatic hair cut

To see the rest,


  1. Put the house up for sale and buy a new one
  2. Try something new in the bedroom
  3. Go back to school
  4. Book in for a boob job
  5. Sing in public

Now's your chance to daydream in the comments: what do you wish you could do?

Move back to Californa, travel the world, take culinary and French classes. Resume music and art lessons. Escape from responsibilities for a little bit. But life is what you make it, so I'll continue to daydream until I can pursue them in real life :)

#1 on the list is something I would love to do. I would also love to just get in my car and keep driving to see where I end up. (Kinda similar to #1).

Drive to Cute Nerd Boy's house, crawl into bed with him...and fall asleep. Yes, I'm that tired. But he's that cute. Either that, or go to Australia and stay there.

I wish to get a good job once I graduate and have more money.

Weffie! That's the exact one I would choose. I wish I could see myself 10 years from now just so I would know if I'm making the right decisions about my future. And win big $$$$$$$$$ in the lottery Get a dramatic haircut, though? I never understood why some women are so afraid of trying a new style. Hair grows back. It's not like botched plastic surgery. Right on Pistil, "I'm you're bored, you're boring."

That's excatly the article I needed to read! I'm tired by my boss, my boyfriend, my colleagues... right this second, I would just blow them off, book a spa appointment and talk a nice walk listening to my favourite music. They are so not worth it (maybe the boyfriend is, still thinking about that one!)

Well, right this second I would have to say that I wish I didn't have tutor this morning and lay back down in bed and not wake up til noon. Or money. Money's always awesome.

If I could snap my fingers and have a new wardrobe, a real job, and plane tickets to somewhere tropical, that would be nice. I'd also take cash. I'm you're bored, you're boring.

Leave the kids...go on a tropical beach vacation...and not feel guilty!

This very minute? go home and climb back into the most comfortable bed in the world and have my boyfriend be there too. I also like my life, though I'd be even happier if I won the lottery. That's about all I'd change though!

I wish right now I could quit my job and move some place warm and sunny with my family without having to worry about working again. I'd love to be laying on the beach right now with a tropical drink in my hand.

Wow... that's intense... Lets see... I wish I could do.... nothing. I love my life already, I can't think of anything that would enhance it right now.
