    Either A Journal Or A Diary

    I honestly think it is both in one book, but perhaps just a journal. Writing personal thoughts is fun, but I left my book at my house on accident along with other things. I really, REALLY hope my mother doesn't read it! She has no business in my personal life and she already...

    I've been writing sporadically in the same

    journal for 4 years now. Now there's only two pages with writing on them, I tore the other pages out because I got worried that someone might read it. It's not like I wasn't aware that someone might read it before, I just got a little more paranoid I guess. I never really wrote...
