Tuesday

In my 25 years of existence, I'd never thought of writing any of my stories most especially online. It never entered my mind, and honestly, I am not fond of sharing my endeavors unless I'll write them in a diary.

Did you ever make or have a diary?

Me, making a diary was not my thing, I'm not a girlish kind of lady and I even don't have a crush since elementary up to college. So I thought having a diary for a boring girl with a boring life will be boring.

But I eventually made a diary way back in high school because of a school project.

I find my diary funny as I have nothing to share something special, while most of my classmates were smiling and blushing while writing what happened to them and their crushes at school.

While me? I just shared what I am doing daily, my routine from the morning until the afternoon.

I remember I even cheated in my diary since my teacher complained about the tales inside the diary we submitted. She said she wanted a diary written with excitement and not only about the daily chores we had done every day. And I guess, I am the one who she referred to about. ๐Ÿ˜…

So, as a concerned student of my grades, I made up a story that I also got a crush at school. And made my fairy tale.

Honestly, I even wonder if it was normal, I mean I don't have a crush at school, unlike my classmates and schoolmates who were busy tailing their crushes inside the campus.

I don't have something special to share about my diary and that's a fact, I submitted it, and after she gave us grades, our teacher gave it back to us, for us to cherish when we graduate.

I kept it even though there's no special thing in it, but when I went to the city to work, I left my belongings including my diary at the province. And when the house was renovated, some of my stuff including the diary was misplaced, or probably was thrown away.

Now that I'm done with the diary, let me tell you about one thing I used to love during high school. Who among you has written or had a slambook before?

It's like filling in your personal data such as a nickname, most embarrassing moment, favorite color, food, etc, uniquely, which was so high school!

I and my high school friends always kept our slam books with us, we never bought one but instead, we made our โ€œownโ€ slam book. Using an unused and unwritten notebook, we wrote the questions according to our โ€œtasteโ€ to be answered by our classmates and colleagues.

We had fun passing the slam book and enjoyed reading each page from top to bottom. That's what I missed the most during my high school years. So sad I lost my slam books and can't read what's written inside of them again, but the memories will always remain.

That diary and slambook made my boring teenage life fun and turned it into a year full of great remembering.

I'm sure my friends remember this too, on how we laugh so hard and giggle reading some answers written on the slam book. I love to read other people's thought through slam book, especially their motto in life.

I remember my motto was always this, โ€œI make my own destinyโ€. And until now, I believe that and I'm acknowledging it.

I don't know if teens today are still doing the things we used to do years before. As the technology today is on trend and a lot of social media platforms take over the paper and the ballpen. And every attention is on the screen.

This generation is so advanced at every thing, they're lucky to see the development and improvement of life nowadays through the help of technology, but one thing is for sure, doing stuff such as diary and writing slambook will always be fun, memorable and more intimate compared to facing the screen.

Also I'm privileged to read and recognized someone through their answers on the slam book I wrote and I find it more authentic than some responses I read online.

Those manuscripts will always be kept and no one can access unless you let someone to read it, or unless it was lost just like what happened to mine.

Today I'm not having any diary at home nor writing on slam books, what I am facing today was the new generations way. However, I'm still thankful that I had experienced those before I aged.

Haha. It's fine some people are not expressive. And most expressive beings are girls so they want to express how they feel on a certain date which they considered โ€œSpecialโ€.

Sure memories can't be forgotten, yet reading a detailed note of it could be more nostalgic.

Like you po I'm not girlish. Haha. I don't have diaries or slambooks. I remember I bought a cute notebook so I could write my everyday life or anything I want but I didn't write anything it end up to be my notebook for my other subjects. ๐Ÿ˜† I don't even had a crush on someone when I was in elementary too and I didn't know what crush means back then. :> High school when I had a crush but he didn't notice it. :( HAHAHA. I will cut it here. XD

Oh, no for sure one day your crush will notice you. You're too cute not to be noticed! While I don't experience having crushes and butterflies whenever someone is coming near me. I guess I'm really weird. ๐Ÿ˜…

I also have an experience about diary! I remember it was on grade school when we are required to make one. I'm too lazy to write one that I had to cheat on it. And it's very boring coz I can't find the enthusiasm while writing it. Lol

I don't remember answering a slambook tho. Maybe I did once or twice. Hehe

Then when I was on high school I started making shirt poems on the notes on my phone. And I have a little notebook where I sometimes write my random thoughts.

Right now, I still write journal daily, onlt that it's for my personal devotion, for my spiritual health.

I can relate with the diary part.๐Ÿ˜‚ Yung paulit ulit lang yung sinusulat ko kasi wala namang exciting na nangyayari sa buhay ko. Haha puro nga chores lang nasusulat ko tapos sobrang iksi pa. Kaya minsan nun tinatamad na akong magsulat kasi parehas lang naman mga content. Napipilitan nalang akong gumawa kasi everyday chinicheck ni teacher. Haha sa slam book part naman pinasagutan ako ng classmate ko isang beses nung dun na sa crush part sabi wala, ayaw tanggapin kasi impossible daw na wala akong crush. ๐Ÿ˜‚ eh sa wala naman talaga. Ano pipilitin ko sarili ko? Hahaha kasi simula nun pili na lang mga sinasagutan ko na slam book, yung tanggap na wala akong crush. Hahahah๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
