What are kinds of subjects REALLY interest you? Think about topics, or subjects : places, things, situations, etc., that you care about, or really enjoy, or social issues, and pull some keywords from these topics. Since your instructor is asking you to find peer-review articles, you need to go to a general periodical database (like OneFile or Academic Search Complete) ,and enter the topic ("idea") keywords in the search boxes. Ask the database to limit the search to "peer review" or "scholarly" publications by finding a "limit" checkbox (different databases describe this function differently). You may want to look at the list of databases and get more ideas for subject areas to try: health, social justice, etc. Many of the databases focus in topic areas--like Criminal behavior, Health, Social and Gender issues. FINALLY: If you still struggle after 30mins., find a librarian: we can help you get going and find the sources you need!
