Did you know that in the past, your mom or dad probably had a school diary? Yes, your parents! As weird as that may sound to you, school diaries are nothing new.

At this point you're probably saying "ew" and "wow" and you're right to do so. How boring right?
Luckily, you're living in a more technologically advanced time. And paper is, well, kind of phasing out. Everything is done on tablets, smartphones and laptops. Think about it. When was the last time you looked at your computer or smart device today? Chances are you're looking at one right now to read this, and if you are, that's a good thing. If not, you're reading our thoughts and that's kind of cool!
