Mar 28 – My First Diary

How old were you when you started your first diary?

I’m not entirely sure how old I was, but I know that I was in high school – perhaps year 8 or 9… so maybe 14 or so. I remember that it was a week-per-opening diary, which was used as a homework diary initially – but then it also became more of a memento diary. I’d use it to store notes my friends had written during class; I’d paste in ticket stubs from the movies or theatre; and because I was also completely obsessed with the spice girls, it was completely full of Spice Girls stickers, cards and pictures from magazines etc. I’d mark in the school holidays, and when I had big tests coming up, and I’d use the hourly breakdown to plan study time and breaks… although I didn’t really stick to them, because I was too busy doing other stuff.

It was several years ago when I did a big clean out that I actually came across one of these diaries… and I recall becoming completely sidetracked by it. Instead of just throwing it out and continuing on with my epic spring cleaning, I found myself spending a couple of hours flicking through each page of this diary – re-reading all my entries and the notes, and reminiscing on days gone by.
