Keeping A Journal

9/7 Perhaps this journal will teach me as much about myself as it will about English. You know, I've never kept a journal or such before. I never knew what a pleasure it is to write. It is a type of cleansing—almost a washing of the mind ... a concrete look at the workings of my own head. That is the idea I like most. The journal allows me to watch my thoughts develop yet, at the same time, it allows me a certain degree of hindsight.

In this passage, Peter calls journals places "to watch [his] thoughts develop" and to allow him a "certain degree of hindsight." I agree. Journals are collections of thoughts, impressions, musings, meditations, notes, doubts, plans, and intentions caught chronologically on paper. You write them in your most comfortable language for yourself.
