A blast from the past

I started my first journal when I was 13, and journaled prolifically until my early twenties, then the need to journal somehow fell away, and I only wrote in my diary periodically. I only started doing visual journals again recently, although I've always collaged in my apointment books over the years. The pictures below are from my first journal started in 1982, my first year of high school aged 13. It goes on until September 1983 by which time I was 14.

Front and back cover

I'll post more pages from my old journals over the coming days. It seems we were a lot more naive in those days than the 13 year old's of today, or maybe we were just less sophisticated in South Africa. Well, at least I was.
