i have an online diary thats really more of a documentation of what i did that day. its pretty boring.
i also have a my thought book, which i refer to as "Book" when i write to him (i've given it a guys persona, something like that). at the top of each page it has a quote or a song lyric or something. its not really like a diary, because i dont write in it every day, i just write what i think. hence the title of "thought book."
i'm not all that cool. but i hope i will be someday.

I guess sometimes there's nothing interesting to think about. :)

I keep an online diary. Two, actually. In my public one, I write the general goings-on of my life. I rant about school or I gush about a movie. All in all, it's not that exciting. My private diary is for my love life (or lack thereof). I haven't written in it in a while, though, which is a good sign. Mostly, I write there when something goes terribly wrong.

And I suppose another form of journaling would be the notebook that zoe and I keep. Since the beginning of the school year, we've kept a black notebook that we write notes to each other in. It ends up being mostly a journal that we both read/write in, not really conversation. The notebook is almost all filled up. It was long.

hmm...i'm not entirely sure that this is true. sometimes my journals (i have 2) keep me up later than i'd stay up usually. if you ever read them, you would first notice my schizoid tendencies, and then notice the strange hours in which i write. like 5.46 in the morning. maybe that's just because i'm a night person anyway. oh well...

I used to try to keep paper journals all the time. I would end up doodling in them or using the paper for notes to myself, but not so far as a diary. Then of course I found LiveJournal and I post in it pretty sporatically. I do keep a sketchpad by and do things and studies in that. Does that count as a journal? I think yes because it does track my progress in drawing. (Little as that may be.)
Much Love,

I only write when I am really ticked, really happy, or something major happened.

I did have one for a about 6 months with a weekly entry , just with highlights and the odd moan/ place to vent stress , specaily about arguments with my mum .... Unfortuanatly she read it and altho we've kind of put it behind us now if we're in a heated argument she quotes mean things i've said, even tho i explained to her in was full of crap and meant nothng to anyone but me . she can also use my insecurites i wote about to put me down , so i don't bother with a journal anymore caused to much ciaos :monkey:

that sucks empz. did she have a good reason for reading your journal? or was it simply because she couldnt control herself?
