it's okay.  I worked on mine for 2 years before I was able to gather my thoughts.  Once I got my inspiration, the whole thing took about 30 minutes to write.  I still have all the failure drafts (about 10 of them) and they were pretty awful.

May I ask for a general idea of yours addresses? I seem to be way too ordinary to write a good one

I'm uninteresting, i haven't really been "kept down" or overcome a significant hardship, im pretty normal, just a smart kid that was involved in college... my PS is easily goign to be the worst part of my application.

If your life doesn't have some grand narrative to write about - in other words, like most of us, you didn't join the Peace Corps, spend a year living in a grass hut with the Bushmen, and discovered the cure for cancer in your spare time - I would suggest focusing on one specific incident or activity and write about that.  Write with passion and feeling about *something* and you'll have a better PS than the 90% of applicants who'll wind up with something dull and uninteresting that will encourage adcomms to take that post-lunch afternoon nap.
