The importance of a diary

SHORT STORY: our memory sucks. Bigtime.
As time goes by, we forget more and more details about that magic moment...whatever that moment is.
It's a proven fact so don't waste time arguing about this.
The fastest solution is to...record our thoughts.
Using the most efficient and convenient tool that'll suit you.

LONG STORY:

Hm.
I didn't read about this topic until recently.
I only remember that I've start writing (and keep those writings) even as a child.
As time goes by, back flipping those pages sends me into an interesting world, over and over again :-)

It's common practice to keep a diary private.
Atleast for a while...
If this is not the case, you might as well to put it on a blog.
If your intention is to be an open book, atleast do it propperly :-)
