I used to, but haven't lately.
Can anyone recommend perhaps a tablet or iPad app that you use ?
Yes, and I still do; it's important to chronicle your life! Who else will? This is where your book begins...the rest is still unwritten...
no one else?
Yes. I guess I'm old fashioned, I just do each year in a WORD document.
Whenever I want to see my historical emotional state, I google "datalounge.com My cousin's friend who is a stylist".
It takes me all the way back to the Jennifer/Angelina wars.
Oh god no. I lived with someone for 8 years who kept a daily journal. He was a nice guy in many ways, but he could be summed up as trite but true. He felt he was very profound. He would disappear into his study each night, penning his musings. I imagined it thusly: Tuesday. Had pancakes. They were good.
It's a good way to tell the world "I Was Here" after we've gone.
Embarrassingly I still post on my livejournal but I'm there for the people on my friends list.
I do "morning pages"
3 pages a day

That shit is a life saver
yes, a sex one
I do, but not regularly. I use it when I have problems, it's kind of like talking to myself but in the writing out of my problems I can almost always find the answer to the problem. I need to throw them out as I'd hate for anyone to find them and think my life is nothing but problems, but it's also really good to go thru them and realize how I've grown and how the things that were problems a couple years back are things I know now how to take care of with out writing it out.
I've tried doing it on a computer but for me there is something about the speed that I write, compared to how fast I type, that helps with the contemplation of the problem.
I, myself, do not.
I have since I was 18, I'm now 35, but in the past few years I write less. I've never sat and read all of the entries (it's about ten volumes) and I don't know that anyone will; but I've opened a page here and there and been fascinated, particularly when I first came out and when I was in college. There's also some incredible negative first impressions of people who later became close friends.
I'm like R10 and use my journal to talk out my problems with myself.
It's been hit or miss over the decades but I try to write at least once a week.
