I’ve been journaling since my first-ever crush in elementary school. My entries went something like this:
“I’m mad at mom. She said she would take me to the movies but instead she got her hair colored. The nerve of that woman!”
See the third photograph here — a journal entry from yours truly from March 4-7, 1991 — for a visual. It’s pretty ridiculous. Talk about boy crazy. Sheesh.
For modern-day journaling, I’m kind of obsessed with Taschen Books’ Keel’s Simple Diary ($15). The fine folks at Keel’s explain it as a diary that “offers structure for those who don’t have time to wonder, making it easy to record life’s moments.”
Inside, you’ll find questionnaires and inspirational quotes, too. See photo #2.
Something tells me, I should sign off now and apologize to Dani for “wanting to kill her.”
