As a kid I was given a copy of the School Days Record Book illustrated by Helen Cann, a type of journal where you can record memories of your schooling years from pre-school to end of high school. This version's out of print/only available used; I'm looking for recommendations for a similar school-oriented journal that's more current. (Bonus points if compatible with the UK education system)
I'm considering throwing away several journals from 15-20 years ago. Have you been faced with this choice? If you tossed yours, did you ever regret it? If you kept yours, have you found some value from them? [more inside]
For YEARS I have wanted to keep a short diary of just a few things that happened to me that day. Not deep thoughts and feelings: just the facts. But for some reason I can never keep it up. Do you have any ideas on how to do this? Paper? An online system? A blog? A picture journal? Or even better, a strategy (in the morning, while brushing teeth, etc.?)

Hi, I used to use a program called ViJournal Lite on my Mac, which was a pretty simple password-protected text program that I used as a diary. With it I could create a new page for each day.

I'm having this kinda voyeuristic desire to read about the everyday experiences of other people's lives. I know that, tumblr, being the most popular form of blogging currently, has to have a bunch of people that just use it as a kind of public journal, but it's hard to sift through the reaction gifs and meme conversations. What are some of your favorite tumblrs that are mostly just people talking about their lives?

So I've been using Oh Life to keep a journal for the last two years. The most useful feature is that it emails you a daily prompt, then stores your response online. You can also export all of your entries as a single document at any time. Sadly, the site is going away in October. Are there any other online journal apps that have similar email prompts, and aggregate your entries? [more inside]

I have never been a consistent journal keeper, and I would like to start today! I bought myself one of those five-year journals that has just enough space to write a thought or two each day. Because I overthink and like structure, I am thinking through all the ways to use it before I make that first entry. I have separate apps for exercise and to-do lists. I guess I am looking for a daily prompt or two for this journal. Please help me out: Five years from now, what would you be interested in reading about your daily life?
