In response to 10 Ways To Find Creative Inspiration When You're Stuck In A Rut

As a creative individual, you may sometimes find it hard to get that inspiration you crave, or maybe you struggle with too many ideas!

A top tip is to write everything down, no matter how silly it sounds.

As a writer, I've had great ideas come into my head at silly times in the morning - normally 2 or 3am. I tell myself I'll remember it and write it down the next morning... And I don't. That is one of my biggest regrets.

It is normally the same with poems too. I'll think of a poem idea, but then I'll write the poem in my mind. I think it's so good that I'll never forget it, but after a sleep - I do forget it. The idea is lost in my sleep, never to be seen again.

I definitely learnt the hard way. It sucks thinking of all the great ideas I've probably lost to sleep.

Phones are a godsend for poets and writers in today's age! I officially no longer take my little ideas I get for granted. Everything is written down, even if it's something I don't understand at first. It's jotted down in my notes.

As a poet, I tend to keep a journal too. This journal is full of poetry. Because, as good as it is to have technology, you can never really beat good pen and paper. It still is one of my favourite ways to craft a poem. It almost seems way more personal to an extent.

Being a creative mind is a blessing, as much as it is a curse. Late night writing, thinking of ideas in the dead of night? It's all part of being a creative person.

Generating fun ideas is always rewarding - but now I always make sure I write them down!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
