Im trying to write another cv and I really don't have anything much to write in it .... I know that a cv has to be at least on decent page long but I can hardly pull it out as long as that .... I have past experience as one insignificant and im currently in college just looking for a job....what should I do?

CV is a way to impress employer in just three minutes. If they're not interested, they'll toss it aside. According to a speaker at a seminar that I attend, instead of rambling about yourself, put your previous work experiences first. Start from the highest position to the lowest. You can put on references, people that they might call to confirm. Not a family member but can be your professor in college (teachers in school) and people that know you long enough to clarify the details that you provided is correct. Don't put gender or religion in it, just put your club and activities. The more active you are, the better.

What is a cv? Is is like a resume? If you don't have a page full of information, don't add a bunch of BS. Nobody wants to read that.
