Keep­ing a di­ary

Pick Me Up! Special - - Real Life -

These days, the num­ber of peo­ple choos­ing to doc­u­ment their lives through di­aries is de­creas­ing. A hobby that used to be a reg­u­lar part of daily life for many now only seems to be an ar­chaic form of ex­pres­sion, with most peo­ple turn­ing to so­cial me­dia to vent their feel­ings. But the beauty of keep­ing a di­ary is that you can write as much or as lit­tle as you like, when­ever you need to let off steam. It’s an ex­tremely per­sonal ac­count of your life – the good and the bad – and the best part is that you can look back at pre­vi­ous en­tries, re­mem­ber­ing and re-liv­ing pre­cious mo­ments through your own words. OK, un­like so­cial me­dia, you won’t get any­one else’s re­ac­tion to your words, but at the end of the day, does that re­ally mat­ter?
