The Writer’s Passion – Diaries!

Border of diaries

I have to tell you something – I have a fetish (hey, that’s a new word I learned today!) for diaries. Whenever someone asks me what gift I would like, I say, “please bring me a diary.” So, now all my family members gift me a diary whenever they can. (Yes, they gift me other things too.)

I’ve been crazy about diaries since I was 3 years old or so. So, by now I have a huge collection.

I like all kinds of diaries – the cute ones – with teddy, bow etc. Or, diaries that come with a lock. Or, agenda diaries. Or, the ones that come with colorful pages.

You might want to know what do I do with so many diaries?

I actually like writing on different themes and hence keep one diary for each.

 

And, those themes are  –

And when i thought to make a post on diaries mamma asked me to share some pics of my diaries and share it with you, and I thought it was a great idea.

Here’s a pic of all my diaries.

Diary my fav

I love the colorful pages inside this diary:-)

My own made diary

And now – the best of all – I made this by myself. It was originally a simple notebook. My mama covered it with thick white paper and I decorated it in scrapbook-manner. I cut beautiful words and pictures from magazines and pasted.

In this I write facts about animals, nature, birds etc. and hence used such pictures for the decoration.

In  these diaries, I write about my trips, about myself and my family, my task list, songs that I make, poetry, secret passwords of my email account etc.

The best thing is that since I don’t go to school, I get lot of time to write in my diaries.

 

I have a best friend who has dozens of diaries, too, but she doesn’t get time to write in them because she has school homework. I feel sad for her.

I so admire her diaries and sometimes feel jealous. She brings them from foreign countries like Korea, Dubai and what not!

And hey, shhhh…sharing a secret with you. I love diaries so much that sometimes I get nasty and take away mamma’s diary when she’s not looking. I realize that I should not do that. Mamma is as possessive about her diaries as I am.

Do you have a fetish for something specific? I’d love to know more about you!

    Hey Pari!!!

    I used to have a friend who wrote a journal in her diary for years.. Every single day, she’ll write her thoughts and what happened that day and all that. I was fascinated and horrified (i was a naughty person, and many things i did couldn’t be written down -what if my amma read them???) and we used to tease her. But recently, she read out some things from her diary which we had done back then (23 yrs back) and we laughed and laughed. It was so much fun to recall some of the things we did!!

    Its nice that you have separate diaries for different things.. That way, you can capture many beautiful details in different styles. Maybe you could have one for your art too, like a sketchbook. Or, get your watercolors arranged date-wise and spiral bound.

    You should ask your dad to rent out storage space to keep your collection in the future. Just imagine how many diaries you’ll have 10 yrs from now. 😀

    Keep writing and photographing. I enjoy your blog.

    Love, Padma

    Yeah! It’s good to have memories from “many years back”These things happened in your life. So you can remember how you were. I feel very happy to know my past when mamma tells me how i was when i was small. I record all my memories in a diary. And yes you are right due to my diary interest i will have dozens of diaries from now.:-) And yes i have different diaries for many things, so you don’t get confused and it gets messy if everything is in only in one diary.

    Yep very good you can also recover jokes that you wrote in the past and one day read it and laugh it out together will be much fun!

    Thank for that long comment!

      Cool! Hahaha 😀 Diaries are great to take out your feelings on paper. If I write about my anger (which I do sometimes) it makes me feel so much better! Oh, great – I saw your blog and the poems you’ve shared there.. It was beautiful!
