I bought this One Line a Day Journal a few months ago on a whim. I'm the type of person who buys a journal, writes in it for a few weeks, or a few months if I'm lucky, and then buys another one. Usually it's because the next one is just so "cuuuuute" and I'm convinced that my memories will somehow look better in a journal with a silly owl on the front than they did in a plain black one. In other words, I have about 100 journals of various shapes and sizes, each one with only a couple of pages filled with my thoughts. When you put them all together, well, it doesn't make much sense.
So, when I picked up this little journal, I didn't really expect my fickle friendship with diaries to change. Oh, but it did. All I have to do is write one line a day for five years and I will have a book filled with memories. That's what I mean by "analog blogging". I like that this journal is real. I can hold it in my hands 20 years from now and look back on all of my memories and silly troubles. I love this blog, but it isn't exactly the place I want to share every detail of my life. I mean, opening up isn't one of my strongest qualities, it took me about five hours just to write my About Me page!
A year from now I will graduate from college. That's a scary, crazy, and beautiful statement right there. I can't believe it's coming so quickly! To have this journal with me through my final days of college and first few years in the real world will be such a wonderful thing to look back on.
Does anyone else write in a journal regularly? Or do anything else to document their memories?
