    Hello,

    I'm trying to work out, how can I be original when I keep looking for inspiration and essentially almost copy other people?

    there's your answer, don't do that

    be your own inspiration, imagine that people want to be like you and that you want to set a name for yourself

    Right, I've heard people say you should be passionate about what your doing to be original. But, I can't really think of anything I'm passionate about. :P

    Doesn't have to be a hobby; you could be passionate about something like your behavior or your fashion sense

    Perhaps.... The trouble is is I'm quite an introvert, don't really speak to anyone and very, very rarely leave my house other than to go to college.

    Do you have any quirks or idiosyncrasies that would make other people think you're a bit weird?

    If the answer is yes (and it probably is - everyone's a bit weird haha) then just own those little bits of your unique weirdness that sets you a part from the general norm.

    Its worked for me I think.

    Yeah, thanks! But, I feel like I'm not doing enough with the things that make me weird. I feel like, sure they make me quirky but that's it. I feel like there's something more I can do with that that I'm currently not doing....
