"No one wants to be a model."
Bull. You are either lazy or shy. You have just not asked enough people.
"Currently everything is dead and it just looks depressing."
That's just you. Photography is an art and you have to use your imagination. If you are depressed, you see depressing things and that's what you shoot. If you force yourself to look for funny stuff, that's what you will see and that's what you shoot. What you look for is what you are going to find, provided only that you really look for it. Here's an idea: Ever read the Calvin and Hobbes cartoons? The cartoonist had a running series of cartoons with snowmen that was funny as hell. Try something like that, with real snowmen and photograph them.
