I'm not sure if you're being serious. Are you telling me I should go out and do something just so I can write something on my PS?

No, I'm telling you to go out and do things for the sake of going out and doing things.

So you don't have a few hours a week to explore something you're interested in, or volunteer with a cause you support?

You did not indicate that you work, in fact you specifically said all you've taken no initiative outside of getting good grades. What do you do? Could you spin your job as some interesting learning experience?

Even that can be spun in a PS.
