OPINION – It’s like One Day, 365 days a year: how keeping a diary helped me chart the rollercoaster of my 20s

I picked this particular date for obvious reasons, of course. It’s the same date you probably have etched into your mind, too, if like me you’ve spent the last week devouring Netflix’s new One Day miniseries starring Leo Woodall and Amika Mod. But the truth is I could’ve picked any day of the year. Thanks to my trusty bedside journal, I don’t just have the one One Day to look back on. I have 365 — a fact that comes with the fascinating albeit time-consuming advantage of meaning I can play this fun back of throwbacks every night. Say what you want about dwelling on the past, but for me it’s no wonder nostalgic Gen-Zers are jumping on the journalling train. I can categorically say my five-year-diary is the best £10 I’ve spent in, well, five years.
