People take photos so they can remember days out, parties etc. A diary is like a completely personal, written photo, recording the things only you saw in as much or as little detail as you like.

You remember how things made you feel on certain days or in certain places, so your memory is more detailed.

Make a hot drink, snuggle into a comfy chair, and take half an hour just for you and your diary. It feels great!
