What to Write About

Okay, so I've been thinking very hard for the past two days about an original topic that I could blog about.  I wanted to give my readers something really good to digest, something a bit tasty for their minds, but..alas, I have nothing!  Those nice little surprises that are good for inspiring stories have been in short supply lately, and my creative juices have dried up a bit.

I thought about doing a nice bit about key life lessons and how we should all "strive to be better human beings...blah blah blah", then I realized that at twenty-one years old, what the heck do I know about life lessons?  I'm still trying to figure out who I am and what my purpose is and all that hunky dory stuff.  I'm hardly the person to be preaching about good morals and breaking bad habits.

What about politics?  Exactly....what about them?  I don't know anything about politics and current events, and everytime I try to understand them, I get very confused and a little depressed.  Who wouldn't.

I also tried the thing where I randomly pick a word from the dictionary and then expand that into a post.  I even used my Spanish dictionary to give it a bit of a twist.  The two words I came up with were "economical" and "name".  "Flush" you hear that?  It's my idea flusing down the drain.

And so my dear readers, I am reaching out to you for some help.  Any ideas or comments as to what should blog about would be greatly appreciated.  Maybe it's cheating if I ask for help, but let's face it: do you really want to read another post like this?

    I don't think you need advise. Just keep writing. It's good.
