Ooooh, I LOVE this question!
Lots of people keep journals with systematic diary entries, but I understand that it doesn’t work for everyone.
Here are some cool/interesting/fun/motivational/productive things you can do that don’t necessarily include keeping a diary:
Turn a Moleskine (or other notebook) into a planner/organizer/PDA/productivity system
52 lists
30 Days of Lists
Answer "50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind"
Start a gratitude journal
Create a "life handbook"
Keep morning pages
Start a scrapbook
Use journal prompts to answer questions when you feel like it
Participate in the 7-week Life Cleanse (new link! should work now!)
Keep these 9 lists updated — REALLY useful things to keep track of!
Take notes as you learn something new
Use a notebook to keep track of goal-setting and productivity: 60 Ways to Improve Your Life in 100 Days
Keep a recipe book
Keep a reading journal/movie journal/music journal/fashion journal
Start a quote book
Make a travel journal — use it to plan your trip/vacation, then glue in transportation ticket stubs, itineraries, maps, photographs, dinner receipts at fancy restaurants, and write about your adventures
Doodle in it
Write poetry
Cut out and glue pretty pictures
Create a bucket list journal and record each item as you complete it
Keep a dream journal
Does that give you enough ideas to start with? :)

Hello lovelies — I have removed or replaced broken links. Everything should work now.
thathipsterwiththeface pointed out that you can also use notebooks as dream journals (can’t believe I forgot that one), so I have added it to the list!
Right now, this post has over 37,000 notes. I’m a little amazed — and proud — that you all appreciated my humble resource this much.
I have many questions and comments still sitting in my inbox — don’t worry, I’ll get around to answering them all! Though it might take a few days… :)

recreating-yours-truly asked:

Hello, I came across a post you made about notebooks/journals and I really loved the 52 and 30 days of lists ideas. I would love to make one as a wedding gift, but geared more towards love, relationships, etc. that the couple could fill out over the course of the first year or so of their marriage. I was wondering if you have any ideas or sources that I could use as inspiration for a wedding gift. Thank you!

writingnotebooks answered:

That is an AMAZING and WONDERFUL idea!

I can’t find anything online that matches quite what you’re looking for — but here are a few ideas that might help.

My “Why I Love Brian Today” Journal

A Marriage Journal: set goals & write out things you love and notice about your spouse

Write daily letters (warning: this one might make you cry)

Ten Journal Prompts for New Love

If you don’t want to create a physical journal, you can also make a journal in a jar!

The Love Dare Journal

Keeping an engagement journal

Project Life Memory Keeping — you could add cute pictures and quotes but leave open spaces for them to document their own thoughts!

Some ideas for “lists” for the couple to fill out:

- list favorite memories of your courtship (best dates, happy times together, maybe you got a thrill out of the way s/he met your eyes across the room…)

- list your mutual interests

- list the items and traditions that define your relationship (maybe s/he always buys you double delight roses because those are your favorite, maybe “Moondance” is “your song,” maybe you started making homemade pizza on Friday nights two years ago and haven’t stopped)

- write your marriage bucket list (where do you want to travel together? what do you want to experience together?)

- what are your favorite things about your spouse? (one list for each person to fill out)

- list your favorite memories from the honeymoon

- list the craziest/most exciting/adventurous things you’ve done together

- write down your short-term goals together

- write down your long-term goals together

- list what you’re grateful for in the relationship

- list some cheap but fun date night ideas

- list some expensive, swanky date night ideas

- list your favorite quotes about love

- list the books/movies/media you want to introduce to your spouse

- list the defining moments of [the first month of marriage/the second month of marriage/etc]

- list everything that you remember about [how you met/your first date together/the moment you realized you had fallen in love/your engagement/your wedding day/etc]

- list everything your spouse can do to make you feel taken care of or cherished (maybe you crave chicken noodle soup when you’re sick, maybe you really appreciate foot rubs on days when you work overtime, maybe you adore the way s/he reaches for your hand when you walk down the street together and you want to express your appreciation for making you feel so loved)

Thanks for the question and hope this helps!!

One of the best moments of my childhood.

BITCH

ZERO HAD ZERO FUCKS

I can’t even tell you how excited I was that they turned this book into a movie and it was good

I literally have absolutely no complaints with the movie at all. Once, my friend and I did comparisons from the book and the movie, and we found the only major difference was the fact that Stanley wasn’t heavy set when he arrived at the camp in the movie. The majority of the script is raw quotations from the book.
This is my favorite book to movie adaptation and it did everything Percy Jackson, Inkheart, and The Golden Compass didn’t.

yesss this was such a good book and film

And the only reason Stanely wasn’t heavy set was because in the book he loses tons of weight and eventually ends up being almost thin. The director said he didn’t want to force an adolescent boy to lose weight on such a quick filming schedule, and L’bouf’s audition was so spot on, that they decided to go with a thinner Stanely from the beginning
