Ever since my school days, I’ve always loved to write! I remember writing my first diary at the age of 8. (when I was a grade 3 student!) Though you cannot spot meaningful info in a 8-year old’s diary, it’s a complete bliss to read it now! I remember writing about how I prepared my first coffee (which was a fail), how I used to fight with my cousins and I also remember writing about the sparrow family that lived in our house!
I grew up writing personal journals as it has been my great escape; an escape from reality that I always wanted whenever I was down; Writing gave me so much of relief when I was down and it helped me store my happiest moments as well!
All my diaries have been my best companions and I always feel as if I’m sharing my thoughts with a person and not just a page when I pen down my thoughts. As I grew older, (may be at 12 or 13) my diary writing habit turned into a curious-subject among my
family members relatives and few of them wanted to read it as if it was a comic book! (BAD habit I know!) Hence, I stopped writing anything on a diary and quit the habit for a few years!
After I started my blogging journey I created an online diary for myself! (that could be viewed only with a password) I’ve been writing there for the last 4-5 years but nothing feels like ‘writing’. Saving my memories somewhere is of course special but the pen and paper add an unique feel to it!
Now that I’m 20, I wanted to get a diary for myself (and I’m sure I can keep it a secret from people!) and at the right time, this diary from Doodle Collection (www.doodlecollection.com) reached my hands! They sell awesome diaries online according to your needs! They even sell planners! I received the diary in a well packed box and this reminded me of my good old ‘diary days’ at the first sight! This diary is priced at 545 INR.
Overall, this story teller – neon yellow diary also looks far better than my old diaries that had plain white/off-white pages (they are more special though!) and it’s more compact that I thought! I was worried about the weight but then it’s weightless; has a leather cover and bright neon yellow pages, (200.nos) which makes it look very attractive! I can easily carry it anywhere since it is light in weight.
I still haven’t decided if I’m going to make this my ‘daily diary’ with my everyday schedule, diet etc or my ‘VERY’ personal diary. But I’m already in love with its looks and I’m eyeing out for more from their collection! I’m checking their planners as I badly need one right now!
