    Still Write In Them From Time to Time

    I've kept all my old diaries from when I was a kid. Granted, the only things I had to write about were school and trying to stay up all night, but it's nice to look back once in a while. It really does take me back. I still actually write in them from time to time. I never...

    I Still Have Mine

    I've been writing in them since I was 7 in the 2nd Grade. I'm now an 11th grader and I still write in them. I read mine every so often but I find that my middle school ones are the most entertaining whilst I'm embarrassed to read my 9th grade one as that one is horrible...

    Yep... I didn't have a happy childhood, since age 6, when my anxiety started and my birth-father came back. The two are connected, which I learned in therapy. :-/ Anyhoo, I have one book, which I named "The Book Of Death"... and it filled with all of childhood horrors...

    And I'm Still Writing Them.

    I've been writing diaries since I was four so at this point I have most of my life chronicled. From time to time I'll look back through the older ones and see how my life and viewpoint has changed, it's a truly amazing thing sometimes to relive my childhood in such detail.

    From 5th Grade!

    I still have my old journals & poetry, beginning in the 5th grade.  Of course, I've considered throwing them away (or burning them to completely destroy all evidence) because, quite frankly, they are so very embarrassing.   I embarrass myself, reading how love...

    They're Morbidly Funny

    Yep, I have one I started when I was 8, and the a few scattered "poetry notebooks" I had through my teens.   I know my childhood wasn't the best, but sometimes I can't help but laugh at some of the entries. In my one from when I was 8, I'd have (for example...

    Yeah, I Still Have The Damn Things.

    I don't read them, though. I find them embarrassing, and one of these days I'll get rid of 'em.
