I have a diary from the 9th grade, with more than 60 pages of writing in it about everything! mostly to the category of romance and fantasies, what's goes on in the mind of a teenage girl who is lost and just needs to write it out, I was really confised last year but for some reason I've changed and grown to where I'm happy and don't need to write in a journal/ diary. It really a way to express your bottled feelings for people who are depressed at times. I started writing the first of my 9th grade year when my first love cheated on me. Let me tell you, I went all Adele on that year :p Only one person has read my WHOLE diary, my other friend said she couldn't read any more of it then she started to cry. It was written with passion, hurt and love, every single word. Also there are lyrics from a song. I always look back at it sometimes and cry.
