Any of you guys keep one?

I keep a journal, which is basically dreams I have (literally dreams I have at night, not "I want to to be a firefighter one day" dreams) and various thoughts I have throughout the day.

FYI;
Journal = Observations, reflections, philosophical musings, etc.

Diary = A recollection of the previous days events.

Especially journals with unicorns on the front.


OT: I've thought about keeping a dream journal, because I heard it helps with lucid dreaming, I just keep forgetting to do it.

Yes, because unicorns can be found under double rainbows.

I blog. According to your definitions, it functions as both. A journalry, if you will.

I've always felt written words were too inadequate in describing the things I want to convey.

I wish I had enough patience to keep a dream log, I really admire you for that. it's something I've always wanted to do and just never stuck with.

I have a blogspot I dont tell anyone about and I kept various diaries when I was younger but nothing consistent. I think we all had a xanga at some point and time too. mainly I just post poetry on the s&l forum here or in my blogspot if I want to keep track of it
I do keep a little notepad in my purse though when little things pop up, like a line or two that I like and want to remember or, as a good number of pages are dedicated to, sudden epiphanies

Meh, I thought about starting a dream journal but, on the rare occasions I remember what I just dreamt, I only remember little, senseless bits of it so I have deemed it pointless.

I blog but not seriously. I post the odd annoyance or point I want to make on he likes of twitter, tumblr, ug blogs or in a facebook note depending on subject.

I keep a dream blog though, for the more cracky dreams.

If you write the moment you wake up, you'd be surprised with what you remember.

Truth.
I write it physically in a little notebook as soon as I wake up, then put it in the blog whenever I feel like it.

I'd love to do this. Even set out a notebook + pencil to do so at one point.

The problem is that I'm a fairly bad person in terms of mood/motivation in the morning. I can go to bed thinking it'll be a great idea to write down dreams, but when I wake up it just seems ridiculous. By the time I'm back at the level where it seems like a fairly fun idea, I've forgotten everything.

I've got somewhere around 30 notebooks laying around my room/house filled with pages upon pages of a combination of school notes, dream writings, lyrics, poetry, doodles, silly things, and high/tripping ramblings/scribbles.

If it was a little more structured, I'd call it a journal of sorts.

I keep a dream journal and a acid journal.

I've thought about keeping one, just to keep myself sane. I may start a typed one when I get a laptop this week. I can't be bothered to write one.

I actually don't feel like remembering most of my dreams. They're just weird. As for philosophical musings...I have a ton of those. I usually have so many that very few of them stand out anymore. I plan to write a philosophy book someday though.

I've had a dream journal for a long time now. It's actually pretty entertaining to go back and read the dreams I had when I was little - I have about 6 entries where I was being eaten by a pizza.

Other than that, I have a journal. But I use mostly to write stuff down that I need to remember since I have a really bad memory.

I'm starting one tomorrow coz I move to Australia. I figure it'll be a good way for me to keep sane, but also somewhere I can comment on life and various things.

I keep an electronic dream journal.
And occasionally, I write about everyday events. Those are usually more like real-life inspired, uneventful short stories than a journal, though.

I used to keep a dream Journal to aid dream recollection and for a while, it was going great: I was able to vividly remember my dreams almost every night.

BUT!

All of a sudden I went through a period of about a month and a half where I could not remember a single detail of any dream I would have. When I started remembering them again, I just sort of forgot to get up and running again.

It blows but I think I will start again tomorrow. Thanks for the reminder.

I use a sketchbook as a journal, and I write in it pretty frequently. I've found that I'm much better about returning to a journal if there aren't ruled lines on the pages. This way, I can write big or small, straight or horizontal, sketch, write poetry and musings without any restrictions.

I am, I am, I am.
#31
I do occasionally but I seem like a sociopath every time I re-read previous entries, and I'm like 'lol WTF was I thinking' then write something as equally demented without realizing it at the time.

I did for a long time when I used to do poetry readings. Then poetry got all "SLAM!!" and I was never into pseudo-rapping for some kind of Olympics-style judging process.

Just get together with some highly intelligent/marginally psychotic people and get extremely drunk.

I would also write philosophical type stuff, but it always seemed really pointless and stupid when I went back and re-read it.
