Do you have a Diary?

When I was at the age of 12 my grandma gave me a diary. I was so happy coz I could write all the special moments in my life and of course all my secrets. I treated my diary as my best friend and I can still remember I have a special box for my diary or sometimes I put it under my bed. What about you do you also have a diary when you were still young?

I have kept a diary for years. I have recorded things that have happened in my life and in my cildrens and grandchildrens. Now I write things about my travels. It is nice to look back in them and see what happened a year or two ago. Although it was nice to write them at the time I have got rid of them now and only keep about two or three years of them now.

So nice to hear that you maintained to keep your diary all these years and manage to write all the memories you have of your children and grandchildren. I wish I could do that too. :)

I had a diary when I was in high school. I remember lying on my bed writing "girl" stuff in it LOL. I don't know whatever happened to that diary. I probably threw it out when I got older. I don't have one now, although I have thought about getting a journel or diary to write in sometimes. Have a good lotting day.

Hi ya amzthienne I have never really kept a diary but I have on occasions written down how I am feeling that day if I was feeling particularly down or upset about something. I also logged events once of a journey I took which was a great adventure and didn't want to ever forget it.

When I was in grade four (around 10 years old) I was keeping a diary. It was sort of a fad because most of my friends were having their own diaries. And it's just cool reading about stuff and writing about your day. I still do keep a journal of my own but mostly my thoughts are written online these days.

Yes and my mum snooped in it and got mad about what I wrote, so I invented my own secret language to use just in my diary, which of course made her even madder. Needless to say I did not get a diary the next Christmas! I still keep diaries of sorts, but now I call them logbooks. My favorite one is contains information about my plants, when I planted the seeds and how long it took them to sprout and their first flower--that sort of thing. Not secrets any more, but still special.

I used to start diaries when I was young but I was never fascinated with it long enough, one week at the most. Until now, I have problems keeping up with a blog. There are days when I write and there are days when I don't. After a long while, I will just let it go. So far, I kept one of my blogs running, trying to write a post each day.
