The world is an inspiring place. I've always found inspiration through art, music, books, people around me, history, nature. But there are two things I was sure would never, ever inspire me. Math and science.
I'm an English major for a reason. Math and science have, in the past, left me feeling empty of all creativity after going to class or doing homework. This semester I'm bogged down with GE's that I wasn't really dreading but I didn't exactly think would make me feel creative. But my astronomy class? Astronomy is awesome. The vastness and all of the different possibilities out in space has opened my mind and made the ideas juice out of me. Plus, if nothing else, looking out to everything that space contains is simply beautiful.
This inspiration was so unexpected, but I'm eating up every bit it gives to me. Have you had any unexpected inspirations? What are your inspirations in general?
