Art project

I am so stuck as to what to do for my final art project.
The requirements?
It has to be an artist's book.
That can be basically ANYTHING!!!
Of course I've had about a million ideas, but none of them have stuck.
I thought about doing an illustrated version of part of Beowulf, with the writing in old English calligraphy. But that doesn't seem creative enough.
I just really don't know what to do!
My creative juices seem to be all used up.

On another note, my last project turned out really well! I think I will get a good grade on it, because the critique went really well, and my prof said that the craftsmanship was well done. I'm happy with how it turned out, which is surprising because I felt so rushed to finish it!

My art class is still the only one that I really like.
I mean, I like writing my thesis... kind of. I like the research that I did for it, and it was interesting and fun. But now I am just flustered as to what to do next. I am not so sure that is is cohesive, and I know that it is too much in the passive voice. I have trouble with that.
I also feel like it is just missing something, but I don't know what.
I guess that is why we do a peer edit. Hopefully I will get some useful feedback.

One happy thing: I felt almost okay this whole weekend! Friday, I felt mostly fine. Saturday, I was just tired with a sore throat... no dizziness. Sunday, I felt a bit dizzy, but I know I didn't eat often enough, and I think that the allergy medicine that I have been taking is what started to make me feel even worse.
I generally only take allergy medicine for a few weeks in the spring, and maybe the fall. But this year has been so bad that I have been taking it everyday for the past month. And I was taking the kind with Psuedoephedrine, which meant that I slept even less that usual. That kind tends to work the best, but I realized yesterday that it was making me feel worse. I stopped taking it for awhile and switched to Benedryl, even though it makes me sleepy.. but then I took the other kind yesterday, and felt funny again.
I know it's not the cause of my feeling out of it for the past two months, but I definitely think that it is what made me feel absolutely horrible.. I don't do well with stimulants. Especially kinds that mimic the effects of amphetamines. No good. I see why they limit the amount you can buy.
So it's nice to be feeling slightly closer to normal again :)
Here's to hoping that the rest of this gets figured out!
