But I've been completely uninspired. That is, until my therapist made me write some paragraph about imagining my happy place, which i turned around and gave him an essay about how my happy place shouldn't be imagined, because if I was in the real world I could go to it whenever I wanted (my happy place is my truck, btw)

 

So now I'm convinced that I need assignments so that I can get inspired by them. Any ideas? Of course, I never stick to the assignment, I just use it as a starting point and turn it around in my own way of seeing it, but i just need ideas, at this point. Anyone want to help?

those both sound really interesting, i'll have to look into those. I never thought of entering a contest before.
