I don't any more -I did as a teenager.

Though now sometimes I shudder when I watch TV and also when I hear of people looking in other people's diaries!

I kept a journal, on medical advice, after my first child died -it did not last long and when I re-read it, it upset me so much, that I threw it out.

Otherwise, no longer have a desire to keep a diary as it would now probably be boring! though that is how I like it at this stage of my life -peace.

Yes, for the past 15 years
I use too.
Not these days, my time is limited for that.
My dear Mother use too, and when I found her writings...after she had passed, it was so sweet to see what she had wrote.
Lots of tears too!

I think we are all blessed when we read the diary notes of Anna Frank, bless her heart.
Not my cup of tea although if I was travelling I might keep a journal of where we went and what we saw to help put the photo album together when we return.
Off topic but I love the gloves in that picture.

I kept one for a while during my pregnancies and for a while afterwards, making note of cute things the kids said and how I felt about pregnacy and parenting. I don't normally though.
They're mittens! Used to be a nursery rhyme about 'mittens & kittens''....lol!

What we called mittens when I was a kid covere your fingers, but all in one piece (like a sock) except the thumb. Those I'd call fingerless gloves. Mabye it varies by area.
Jennifer - as children in Scotland we also called gloves which covered the whole hand with just the thumb separate "pockies" or "mittens". The fingerless gloves used to be used by workmen but have now become a bit of a fashion item - go figure!

I did as a teenager. I've also kept journals for specific purposes over the years - food journals, travel journals, pregnancy and baby journals. I also blog a lot which could be considered a type of journaling I guess.
I do journal - I do it because I like to write things down.

When I was at school I kept a very bland diary with nothing very interesting at all in it.As an adult I have had to keep medical journals on many occasions when trying new medications, or suffering new symptoms.It is very helpful to have this information when visiting the doctors and specialists.
I kept a diary as a teenager but just couldn't see the point after a while and stopped.
Yes, so I know what appointments I have!
Have used a diary for soooo many years', would be lost without one!
I keep a diary as I play lawn bowls and need to write in the days of play and competiton dates.
without a diary dates can be forgotten and then I find that I have double booked something.

I have kept a diary since I was a teenager. I'm now in middle age so it's been a long while. I'm not sure what my children will do with all the diaries once I've passed away.....I keep the entries generic (nothing racy) just in case they read them!
p.s. to Finy - you can eat guavas - my music teacher used to eat them (not sure if it was cooked or not) with custard.
I've started several times and go ok for a little while then it all falls apart. I have a friend who has kept a journal for each year for many years - such discipline!
Living with mental illness I often try; however I tend to lose the plot with it in a matter of days.
Yes, I started to keep a journal after my husband died. I have been recording my emotional journey through the past couple of years and also my day to day lifestyle. It is, of course, private and no-one else sees it, so I can write whatever I feel like (cusses and all)!
No. I just don't have to waste recording events. I either choose to forget or rember what I consider useless or useful events.
I've kept a diary, every day, since 1962 while I was at boarding school. I thought, "What if the police ask me, sometime, where I was on such & such day"? So that is why I've aways written in a diary. (And I've still got them all!)
