    Don't people start when they're quite young like 12/13?

    I'm starting uni soon and thought it would be fun to start writing a daily diary; just something to look back on when i'm older and laugh at my silly mistakes

    NO WAY. Seriously. It's just memory keeping, no ages attatched!

    Keeping is a diary and fun and quite cathartic, you'll be able to look back on your days with fond memories

    I'm also considering when I go to university this September to write about my experiences. Like every week and talk about the good bits and bad bits about each week, who I met, etc. It's something to look back on, and remember (hopefully) the good bits

    Nope, that's not too late at all! You still have so many more memories ahead of you that you can write down in your diary!

    Diaries are fun to write - you can reminisce about things you did in the past and that's a good thing

    I started writing a diary when I was 13 and I'm still writing diaries and will continue to do so - for me, it's the best way of releasing my feelings and making me feel happy about myself

    Not at all. It's actually a fabby idea.It's a great way of putting down feelings and I've found it to be therapeutic. I'm starting uni soon and think i might start one specially for that too.

    That's pretty cool, how long have you been writing one? I can never keep up with it

    No, why should it be? I wrote a travel diary last summer but I'm not consistent enough to write in a diary every day

    Haha thank you! Oh I finished that "one" years ago! I've gone through about 3 books by now :') Haha I don't blame you at all - I don't write daily but only if I have time or can be even bothered to write an account of my day/days Exam periods will be the only exception that I totally don't touch my diary because I'm purely focused on work no matter what exciting things happen during the day!

    I keep telling myself that I'll make one soon, to record my DofE adventures and other stuff but I never get round to doing it :sad: I'll set myself the task of writing one in the holidays i think, I wonder if I'll be able to do it

    Ahh, DofE is a great thing to put into a diary! Ohhh don't think that! :console: Yeah, I was just about to say what you just said now - setting yourself a task for writing an account of something! Good idea actually - it's the gateway for diary writing

    I want to start writing one once I start uni too, it will be cringeworthy and nostalgic to look back on once you're older

    Ditto, never found the appeal of diaries but I guess it'd be interesting to try when my life actually gets interesting :lol:

    Of course not. I started keeping a diary when I was 19 - a year ago and started writing a journal recently. It has 'improved' my memory immeasurably! It really is worth keeping one. Diary for my memories and a journal for my thoughts.
