I’m a huge fan of diary. Ever since I was in elementary school I already kept a diary to take down notes about what happened to me: from big events (big for 10-year old kid mind you) to totally mundane things like new anime to watch (yes, I’m an otaku ever since…EVER!). I managed collect several diaries from I was a kid til HS. But when I got into university my interest dwindled aside from my schedule was pretty much unsteady (some days I have classes in the morning, sometimes afternoons til evening). I was way too tired to keep up with it. Later I started bulleting things through an organizer (pic below; the only thing I managed to salvage from the 5 times we moved). But when I started getting a little active online I was introduced to livejournal and dreamwidth. I went digital & I never looked back—til now!
But nowadays people are expressing their interest on doing things traditionally. Coloring (I will try to post about it soonish~), art, and now journals. I wanted to start a diary again. I’ve been wanting to start early last year but I was always preoccupied apart I’m just naturally lazy, haha. My solution, yep, to download an app. I’m using Journey, a diary app available @ google playstore. And I’ve constantly (as in no fail) writing for almost half a year now and it gives me peace of mind whenever I poured all my day’s worries activities. Writing my feelings down is really therapeutic. Writing to my diary for me is like praying. I pray to God through a diary. It had been and will always be like this. To speak to God daily is an amazing, refreshing feeling.
But I haven’t written longish paragraphs for quite some time now that my hand gets tired easily so that’s why I use an app instead (oh yes, it’s way convenient for me to type than it is to write). But I was introduced to Bullet Journal! It’s so creative, neat and simple (me thinks). I like this whole journal/organizer/scrapbook feel to it. Last month, I looked around for stuff to jazz up my journal, mini washi tapes, colored pens! I even stumble across some lovely free printables online that make more exited for everything. Oh, and I made one for myself too! Aaaah~ I’m excited to completely fill this one out!
(Although that being said I’m still keeping my digital diary because it has now become habit of mine. But scribbling down my day’s event in traditional way is sure loads of fun.)
How about you? Do you keep a journal? What made you decide to keep one? What’s your favorite thing about it~! Tell me guys, I’m quite excited here!
