Instead the physical diary that i'd wanted to keed for a year, ive decided i want to try something different. Since i was little, at most 5 years old, ive tried keepig diaries. why? umm, well.. i dont quite know... i probably saw it in a movie, or on tv. Either way, it really hasnt quite worked out; either i forget to write, or im lazy to write, or i am unable to write and the idea just goes downhill. I really liked the idea of writing though. I like story-telling, and reading little stories involving me. I like writing too (though my penmenship SUCKS!) and writing is a lot easier than talking and sharing. Theres just certain things you cant really share with people; im already not a very easily trusting person, so writing is perfect to say whats really going on in my head, without really sharing with anyone else. Journaling is really cool in that way, i can write myself a little story for me to read in the future and remember things. Thats why whenever i attempted writing, i write like im talking to an actual person that'll read it. Quite frankly, its very reader friendly... I even put in little sidenotes just to help myself remember things in case i forget in the future.
Like i said before, ive tried keeping the diary MANY times. I tried in little books when i was little, then when i was 11 i tried on my phone (it was read though, so that was kinda what stopped me), when i was 13 i tried in notebooks, then at 14 i tried on my laptop (the most succesful so far - at least 200 days continuously), at 15 i tried my phone again, (that gets taken away too often to be a stable thing though), and now finally at 16 i'm going to try electronically again.
See, theres the format i found when i checked out the site. I signed up, and sent myself a letter for my 18th birthday already, so i got to thinking that i should continue. Instead of physically writing in diaries for me to read in the future, or doing an electronic diary i save as a file that could get lost or deleted, i can email myself. I mean, ive already had that experience: something important happens, i cant tell anyone right that second, so i draft an email and write it all there. This is different though. How often do i really look at my drafts anyway? Besides, its too recent to be reading them anyway. So with futureme.org, itll just take what i write and save it for me in an email, dated and everything, and just sent it to me on whatever date i choose to have it delivered. So thats gonna be my new way of journaling, everyday beginning 1/1/2014, im going to log onto FutureMe, and write to myself. Itll be my own personal diary available to myself in the future. Perfect.
