i like to write


I have been writing in journals for as long as I can remember.

It started out as "dear diary" but soon evolved into just me jotting down feelings and thoughts.

Then I expanded to writing poetry and short stories and now its really just a good way for me to get things out of my head.

I love going back and reading old entries and laughing (or cringing) about where I was at that point in my life and seeing how far I have come!

So yesterday I went digging in the garage to see how many journals I have completed (if I still had any of them) and lo and behold - I have journals dating back to 7th grade!!!
It was great to take a mental trip "back down memory lane"!

I covered almost 2 decades of my life in about 3.5hours of reading!

My poetry journals are actually my most prized of notebooks - they are so full of intensity and life and I wonder: where did i ever find the time to be this creative mentally?


Currently I have two seperate journals :

1) to write down any frustrations, issues,dramas, concerns and just about life

2) a gratitude journal - here i document the blessings in my life whether big or small and I have found that this is most helpful in putting things into perspective for me.

But with the advent of blogging, status updates and twitter it seems like I just don't have as much time for it as I used to.

I'm too busy thinking about my next blog post!


So, I want to know: does anyone still write in a journal anymore?

Let me know if you do and how often and what do you write about?
