I haven't scanned anything in a while.
Here's the first page out of a journal I kept in 6th grade. The journal was actually a class assignment we did for credit.
If I remember correctly, you had to keep up with it on a daily basis, filling up at least a half page per day.
You can see I got a "1" on the first page, which I think was not a good thing -- probably due to my not fulfilling the half page requirement.
I'll be posting more pages from this journal -- it's clear to me that I did not enjoy recording my thoughts then as much as I do now, though I did find some inventive ways of stretching my very small journal entries.
