I have a tendency to not write any entries for a while and then write monster entries that go on and on and on and on. So today, I've been writing lots of smaller entries. I don't know which system works better yet, but it sure is a pain for me to find anything in my journal when I've got to go through lots of babbly text. Not that it's common for me to go back through my journal looking for something. Since I don't write very many entries, I normally try to find some other piece of evidence of what was going on in my life at a particular time if I need to. Checking journal entries is a last resort. It might also be easier if I'd learn to use the subject line. But I can never think of useful subject lines so I often leave them blank or just put fluff in them.
