    I have been writing every night

    for the past 7 years of my life (spanning across 8 diaries). It really is a beautiful thing to go back and read old entries. It takes me right back to those moments in my life, just like a good book. Comparing those memories to my present is an amazing pastime, and I have...

    When I read my old diary from 4 years ago It

    feels as if I'm reading someone else's diary. It doesn't feel like me. This is the reason why I keep on writing a diary today. So that later I may read the thoughts of my past life.

    Yes I Still Do

    I started a diary about six years ago. I don't write in it every day, but at least every week. its the one place I can really get everything out, and not hold it all back from fear of hurting anyone.

    Sharing Secrets

    Diaries were always an issue with me, i'm too scared someone will read it... i still keep it moderately in code. But its cool reading about grade 5, or other long time experiences. And sometimes, you can really feel the beauty you felt in life at the time. And how it compares to...

    Since My 4th Birthday

    When I turned four, my mother got me a diary. She probably thought that it was something I'd write in a couple of times then leave on a shelf somewhere. She was wrong. I wrote in it literally every day, until my 5th birthday, when I got a new one. I did the same with that, and...

    I'm trying to get back into writing

    I have kept a diary since my Mum bought me one

    in 2000. I like to write how i'm feeling and what i'm thinking because I find it therapeutic. It's good to have something private that I can look back on to see how things were compared to how they are now. I also really love notebooks so I enjoy collecting them to write in.

    I have always written on my diaries/journals

    since I was 10. I always wrote about random stuff or my deepest emotion or simple crushes and my mom read it one day. It was a violation of my privacy since I hid it under the bed. Nowadays I keep my journals in my laptop because no one knows my password and keep it in a zip...

    I don't write in my diary everyday,

    but I write in it when I have something to say that I cannot say to anyone. At least I said it, if only to my diary!
