Who remember’s that wonderful time in your life when you used to write a diary entry every day? Dear diary, today was amazing I went on a date with *insert guys name* and I had the best time.
Oh, life was so simple then.
Last Friday I was looking for something when I came across my old diary. I ended up being late for work because I stared reading it and I couldn’t put it down. That book is pure gold, every little thing that happened to me and my friends is documented. Every feeling, every joke, every heartache. I must say it’s some of my best work .
My favorite part is obviously all of the boy drama we went through. It covers everything in our 20s. Bad sex, great sex, dates, baby mama’s, pregnancy scares. You name it. But the best parts were when we were dating the guys that didn’t want to commit to us. But on the flip side also didn’t want us to be with anybody else. When I say it out loud now, its ridiculous that anyone would entertain such B/S. But at the time it was all about winning because we thought eventually it would work out.
As the saying goes in Kill bIll, ‘Silly Rabbit, tricks are for kids’.
Anyway we lived, we learned and we grew up and it was the best of times. What Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda were doing in their 30’s we did in our 20’s. If I knew reality tv would be as big as it is now, I might have filmed that shit.
On another note what I did learn from reading it is I have come along way. I was also very dramatic but I guess, everyone was in their 20’s. I also still have some of the same tendencies, which makes me want to reassess things. For example I find it difficult to finish things that I start. I am by no means as bad as I used to be, but it’s still something I’m working on. There were a lot of things that I wanted to do and reading it now I realized I didn’t. There was also one main thing that consistently stuck out and thats moving to New York. The fact that I took that leap is such an accomplishment and sometimes I forget that.Revisiting my past through my diary has definitely inspired me to start writing again. Aside from finding it very therapeutic and an outlet. I think its great to read years later, and look back on your mistakes and wins. You will be surprised on how much of the experiences you forget until you re read it.
Thanks for stopping by and drop me a comment if you kept a diary.
I would love to hear some of your favorite parts.
