Why was I taught to color in the lines?

I am extremely worried about the re-med and e-portfolio projects. I am not a creative person by any stretch of the imagination and I feel like both of these projects are really demanding of that skill set…that I don’t have…or is deeply suppressed.I like templates, neatness, order.

With these projects, there are so many options and choices to be justified. I feel like if I have an idea for how the project should look, there are just a million more options out there that I didn’t even think of that would look way cooler. Yeah, cooler. If I’m not careful, me trying to be creative is going to end up looking like this all over a website:
