I've never actually kept a diary, just tidbits of my life here and there. The idea of getting one and chronicling my life events came to me randomly on thursday and I impressed myself by actually going for it and not letting it die as just an idea. So, i went out and got myself a journal. Picking out a book wasn't as hard as I envisioned (guys seriously I can be indecisive over little things) although I have to give it to the guy at the bookshop for patiently going through journals with me till I made a choice. I was looking for something not too small, not too big and not too girly (Never too girly! Never! :| ). This book was just the right size and looked practical enough so i ended up leaving with it.
I got the book from the patabah bookstore in the mall at surulere. Of course I lingered for a while after paying to check out the other books they have. I was tempted to leave with dike ogu's 'on my way to azure shores" but that wasn't part of my budget so I had to content myself with just looking with the mindset of coming back again for it. If you're a book lover and you live in surulere, go check them out!
I'm already scribbling away in my journal and i hope i keep up with it. Wouldnt it just be cool to someday pick it up again in the future to relieve past memories?.
Have you ever kept a journal? Or do you plan on keeping one?
