People who love to write should keep a diary and people who love to craft should keep a scrapbook. Both are great for memories and recalls. I only keep a diary, but I'm going to work on my scrapbook!
 
Until we write again.

I did have a diary, but writing in it every day was such a hassel and I never wanted to, so I just stopped doing it all together. I really should started doing it again.

Hey.
I don't necessaraly keep a diary... but my wonderful language arts teacher encouraged me to have a book which states what i did and everything that happened in the day and lets me write during language arts. when you think about my journal i could show it to my teacher or classmate anytime.. its not private or anything:smileyhappy::smileyhappy:

I keep a diary, and something like a scrapbook.
 
The main problem with me is universal. I never happen to write in my diary everyday- only when something different has happened :-).

Every so often I start a diary and write in it for a couple of days. The latest one was a Chanuka present. I wrote some stuff in there that I won't tell you about, and then I wrote some stories and poems. Then I wrote the summary of a dream I had. Others stayed on my desk all day and had Post-its on them saying "WRITE IN HERE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TODAY!!!!" I really am too busy writing on Scholastic and for other things to write much else. Besides, most of my writing reflects my life anyway.
But scrapbooking I am very interested in. I took a scrapbooking summer class for two years with my best friend and made lots of new friends, and lots of new scrapbooks, in the class. My first scrapbook was made with baby photos, and was overdecorated at the beginning and slowly got less decorated and less decorated until finally it was absolutely boring. Then I created a scrapbook about my ninth birthday party. It was completely overdecorated. My mom had bought the scrapbook and decorations for a birthday presents, and my dad printed out the photos. So I thought that since the scrapbook was birthday themed every picture had to relate to a birthday. I had some extra pages and some un-birthday-related photos left over. So the Memorial Day parade was 'if your birthday is on Memorial Day' and baby photos of my distant cousin were 'babies are invited too'  and a picture of my dad at the hospital pretending to be a doctor was 'if there's an accident at the party, the doctor can help!"
But my scrapbooks got better. At home, I created one about our trip to Washington, D.C. and Colonial Williamsburg. Then I created one about our trip to Israel, using a wooden scrapbook we bought in an Israeli craft store, during our trip, and Hebrew letter stickers we bought there as well. I made one as a present to my three-year-old cousin, filled with photos her parents lent to me. She loved it. And then there was the one I made using three ginormous presents- a huge scrapbooking set with two scrapbooks, a 64- marker super Sharpie set with metallic silver Sharpies, and a cutting set with a safe cutter, a cutting board, and about ten stencils. That scrapbook, as you can imagine, was the best. I am currently working on one that is filled with old photos, and after that we have another scrapbook reserved for our latest trip to Disney World. I am probably going to write a memoir about that, so check the Peer Review boards!
 
That's all for now,

A while ago, I kept a scrapbook. It wasn't the usual kind of scrapbook filled with pictures, though. I taped objects from events into it. For example, I was in the backstage crew for my fifth grade school play. One of the nights, there was a problem with moving the fake trees on the stage. I'd saved some of the leaves after the play was over, and when I started scrapbooking, I put them into the book. Also, I had a couple of pages dedicated to the fortunes in fortune-cookies.

I have a diary and a scrapbook. Except I don't necissarily call my diary a 'Diary' I just like to think of it as a journal...same thing right? Well, I would just rather call it a journal because it doesn't sound so girly (even though I am a girl). lol...anyways...my scrapbook isn't very interesting yet, but I will get better at it. So...see ya later!

I have a collection of what I did on certain days. I wrote in the book pretty sporadically, so it's hardly complete or could be called a diary. But one time, when I was on vacation, I kept a diary for 3 weeks straight and I remember practically everything about that vacation. Pretty cool, huh? People: do you feel you remember days better when you write them down on a piece of paper or in a journal?

ya! I totally agree. Like I kept a journal regularly when I was in third grade, and was looking back on it a couple of years ago, and I honestly felt like laughing out loud at some of the crazy stuff I had in there. :)

cool. Yea, I went on a field trip to Washington, DC when I was in 8th grade, and in addition to having pictures and captions and stuff, I tried to have objects in there too. One night, we went to really yummy restaurant, so I put the menu into my book.

Hi Jessica.
I really think your idea of having separate notebooks for separate thoughts and stuff is so cool and organized. Whenever I keep a journal (rarely!), it's always really random and eclectic stuff all jumbled together into one book. Yea, I remember stuff better too when I write it in a journal.

ya. Whenever I'm really angry @ someone, or something good has happened, I tend to write it down either to vent or to preserve the emotion.

I'm writing a fictional journal on top of my real one, to remind myself of what a good imagination I had when I'm older and forget things like that. Imagine if you were the presdient of some boring old company that was strictly by the book. Now if you stumbled apon the jounral you would be in for a bit of a shock would you not???

I LOVE LOVELOVELOVELOVE LOVE diaries! I've written in one since I was in 1st grade and I'm now on my 25th! I used to do a scrapbook too, but I'm afraid I'm always in such a rush to tell the story, I never make it pretty enough! I like to take photos though, and draw!
