14 and The Mental Block

It's been two weeks since my last update, which automatically makes me feel as though I should update immediately; however, I don't really have anything amazing to say at the moment. I was recently catching up on a blog I enjoy reading where the author claimed that writers block (or any type of creative mental block, really) doesn't actually exist. It's all about your daily mental struggle with thoughts like, "What am I even doing?", "Will this amount to anything?", "Is this any good or do I just suck and should give up?". Lately, I've been chipping away at my own mental wall, trying to see if there is anything on the other side, and how thick the wall actually is (as of right now, I feel like I should upgrade from a metal spoon to a set of explosives) because I feel uninspired. I myself admit that feeling "uninspired" is idiotic since we live in a mysteriously beautiful world filled with blossoming nature and an unending amount of activities to keep us humans busy, but after coming home from an extremely uncreative semester* at school, the summer has only given me a vague idea of what I used to be good at.

So what do you think? Is a creative block something you just have to wait out, or is there a magical path which will help you get around the wall?

*Which is actually funny because I made it onto the Dean's List for the first time in my life, but it was the most stressful and just down-right awful semesters while in college. Lesson learnt: Good grades do not equal happiness.
