originality in the social sciences or humanities

I'm in the process of trying to come up with an idea for my phd but every time I think I have something, turns out someone else has already done it! I'm just trying to keep reading as much as I can but it is a bit disheartening when you think you've finally found something only to find out it's already been done, starting to lose hope that there is any original ideas left out there or that I'm intelligent enough to think of one!
Any suggestions of how else to come up with this elusive idea would be very much appreciated!

CV for phd application

Hi guys
I'm in the process of applying for a funded sociology phd and they have requested an academic CV. Problem is I left uni in 2014 after getting a masters and have been travelling and working standard customer service jobs since then. I've had a good old search online and all the example academic CVs I've found have long lists of research, published papers and relevant work experience. Not really sure what to put in mine to bulk it out besides my degrees and unrelated work experience?
