Dear Diary...

As I was cleaning last night, I came across my first diary. You know, the ones with the my diary lock that you really can open no matter what? I got this diary when I was 8...and never finished it...even though I wrote in it until I was 14 on and off. My problem was probably that I had several other diaries/journals and I never knew which one I should be writing in... :) Reading back on these entries made me laugh, as did seeing how my writing style changed over the years. I laugh when I think about what I thought was important to write about, or even how I thought I had to act "cool" when writing in a diary. Ah, the days when I had no clue about life...

I thought I would share an entry with you all. This is from the first year I had the diary, and pretty much every entry from this period of time was the same...I was 8, and I apparently couldn't spell.

I used to keep my diaries and tossed them out about 3 or 4 years ago. I couldn't spell and kept it simple as well. Funny how simple life was back then.

Your entry was cute!

That is very very literate. I have diary entries from when I was 8 that go something like "I woke up and got up and went downstairs and had breakfast and cleaned my teeth and went to school. School was boring."
Hmm, yes that's very interesting Jess of 8.
