I started keeping a journal back when I was 33 and since then I've filled 12 volumes in the past 39 years. I've had to change makers of journals twice and went where I last got my latest and they don'y carry it any more so I;ve had to go with a smaller size which I found at my local Wallgreens pharmacy !! I usually write 4 to 6 pages at the end of each day with a reounting of the days activities and at times I add personal ideas and thoughts about things happening in the world. '
Any of you folks do this ? Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

A Journal of my life, Hmm! I seriously wouldn't keep one, it could be very incriminating to say the least. Suspect

I've taken a few stabs at it over the years, but for the most part it's always been one of those "yeah I need to start doing that", kinda things. But on the other hand, maybe I just need to change my personal definition of journaling, since I do tend to write down observations and thoughts regarding life as I see it. I Just don't do it on a regular basis, which to my mind at least, is a key element of journaling.
In any event, looking back over things I've written has on occasion helped me to comport myself with at least a modicum of decorum when dealing with the latest crisis du jour. Mostly I think, because reading of past experiences helps remind me that, as Wiz has pointed out, "despite my best efforts things seem to work out". afro

Mine would read pretty much "ora et labora."

I once kept a diary of some of my UK holidays for a couple visits and they do provide an interesting read. But nothing as extensive as what you've been doing Michael. I'm far too lazy!

Aha! I was wondering what the hell you do with all the fountain pens. It all makes sense now.

It was a typing error which as you can see has been corrected. My "senior" moments are becoming more frequent as I continue to age. Looks as though you have the same problem, ie: eooms. lol!

No journal Michael (and I hope no dossier), but I have started to write what I hope will become a book. It must be great to look back at your memoires...

I used to use a DayTimer, then a Franklin Planner. Did it for years. A lot of what would pass for a diary was contained in there, in the sense that it was a very accurate, very detailed record of what I did, everyone with whom I interacted (and what happened in those interactions), and in many cases my detailed observations about the people and events, and what I learned from them.  

I recently threw them all away; too much old baggage. It was an incredibly liberating experience.

I don't condemn anyone who keeps a journal, but it's not something I want to do any more. For me, the record of my life should be in what I do...what I accomplish, not in what I say about myself.

Besides, the self is a fiction anyway. If I wrote about it I might actually read it, and that's always a risky business. I'd prefer to avoid the danger that I might start believing my own press.

I keep 3 journals:

personal thoughts
writing
medium and long term goal progress.

They are all the same size and paper. I'm open to other journals but I keep coming back to the same stuff.
