Best Ways To Come Up With Story Ideas?

I am currently a college students, starting off my long journey to hopefully become a writer, but I am faced with the horrible illness that is not having any ideas that I could write a good story, or even short story, out of. Any suggestions or processes that help others with this process of uncovering ideas that may be deep down in the mind of the creator!

I get my best ideas when I'm out in the world talking to people. The "lightbulb moment" comes when I eventually realize the connections between various conversations I've had.

So I'd recommend you go start a bunch of 30-second or 60-second conversations with strangers, and see what they've got to say about the world.

It's important to remember that it doesn't have to be some huge undertaking - every person in the world will have something interesting to say to you if you're friendly and open minded.
