Let me give you an analogy of food. If someone told you: make a pizza. How creative is that? You have to follow a recipe, copy that recipe, or it's not a pizza.
I think you summed up the problem quite well, here.

You are a recipe follower - or you'd not be complaining, here, about not being able to use your imagination. You may think you are more, but, solving a problem yourself, even though it's been done, is not just a learning experience but a chance for you to use your imagination.

I think your pizza idea is a perfect one - you think there's only one solution. Have you and idea how many types of pizza there are? NY Style. Chicago Style. Heaven only knows what they eat in Europe.

So, you'll say they're all just basically the same? Well so is every person; so is every car; in fact, so is every day in your way of thinking. Why bother going on to more days when they're all the same?

Damn you must be bored with more than just coding . . .
