How to make your own diary Do you and your schoolmates regularly forget to do your homework? When do your parents tell you to do your homework? Do you forget to prepare for tests? How do you plan your free time? Does your coach call your parents to say you are late again? Why does your brother forget dentist appointments? If you don’t have a diary, it’s a good idea to start organizing your life.
1 Find or buy a notebook. Think about the size that you want. If you want to include a lot of details, you’ll need a larger notebook. A small notebook is easier to carry and takes up less room in your backpack.
Part 1: choosing and decorating a diary
2 How do you want to decorate the cover? Do you like stickers or are you more of a doodler? Write down what you need to buy. Do you keep pictures and fun text from magazines? Do you create collages from interesting materials?
3 Decorating the cover is one of the best ways to make your diary just for you. And the more you feel like your diary expresses your personality and creativity, the more you’ll want to use it. Plus, you’ll get to show off your beautiful work!
4 Write your name inside the front cover. Add information that will help someone return your diary if you lose it. Write your class schedule on the first page so you can check it easily when your friend calls you to make plans.
EAT, PLAY, SLEEP, REPEAT.
