(Lack Of) Creativity

I have come to believe that out of all the qualities a person can possess, creativity is the most important. Primarily because it can prevent one from getting bored. And right now, boredom seems to be the worst thing that can hit one. Even if it does last just a few days and does not kill you. It does, however, force me to turn to TV, and I'm sure long hours of House MD, Bones and Scrubs are harming parts of me other than my eyes.

My school has ended, but college has not yet begun. Results come out tomorrow, but forms on the 2nd of June. So, for the next ten days, I have nothing (not even the filling out of forms) to entertain me. I have spent the last few days of my vacation being utterly bored, and looks like I'll be spending the next few days the same way.

I lack creativity. I don't know what to do, I can't invent anything to entertain myself with, and thus, end up spending 8 hours a day watching the 160GB worth of TV shows I've downloaded. Even old hobbies do not seem enticing.

I am at a loss.

Man, I wish I could do nothing too. Actually, I keep doing nothing all the time but I still have to fill one form or the other everyday. It's become almost a mechanical thing now. And it makes me repel any kind of forms. I wish they could have just one form and finish it. But no, every college has to have it's own form and ask for photos and documents all to be signed by the principal of the school. That is seriously lame.

Good luck for your result. Mine came yesterday. Bloody CBSE hates Punjab.

I actually like forms. Bu ya, I'm sure if I have to fill out a fom everyday, all asking the same stuff, it'll irritate me too. Waise to DU is supposed to have a common form, but as far as I can see, most colleges have their own forms anyway. :)

What are you applying for? some subjects might require you to sit for multiple entrance tests as well.

Hope the result was good :)

I'm applying for Eco, Maths and English. I won't get Eco (got 87.7%), but Maths should be reachable. And DU has removed entrance tests for English. So nope, no more tests. :)
