The funny thing that I always read on the internet is people writing something like "I was bored, so I created Conway's game of life". Like what? You didn't create anything. You just reimplemented someone's idea from a book or from a tutorial from a guy who also copied it from a book or a tutorial.
Then do it in a different way. Sure there is the "standard way" that every tutorial keeps copying, put that aside and find a more interesting way. Do it entirely with bitwise hacks, throw SIMD at it, use memoization on blocks, whatever you can think of. There is a standard way that perhaps you are expected to use in school, but there isn't actually only one way to do it.
