So, I've seen many essay samples and many essay writing tips, but I'm still not sure how to start my college essay. My first problem is I never, I mean NEVER experienced (or remember) anything life changing/ or changed the lives of others. I never read a "good" book. I never met any1 special except my parents, but I can't really write about them cuz 1) toooo many ppl write about them and 2) I dont really like them (parents, hopefully your are not reading this...). Ya so am I stuck with basically nothing. My life has been boring as **** and I dont even know where to begin. Plz help me out.

    The feeling is mutual. Just find SOMETHING unique to write about. Maybe you bought something that you really wanted and it was not what you expected. Just write a unique essay in your own voice.

    It's much more about your writing style than your subject matter. I agree, just be really unique, it doesn't need to be revelatory.
