A Diary of a Kind

100 Happy Days – Day 76

Happiness is an out of the world Diary

In my previous post, I had mentioned that I received a peculiar diary from my cousin as a gift last year. She knew that I am passionate about writing. being a very thoughtful person, she got me this unique diary. It is called Q&A a day – 365 Questions, 5 Years, 1825 Answers.

This is the note behind the diary

This particular diary has 365 leaves with 5 sections. Each leaf has a question. I must answer these questions every day of the year in the first column. I answer them again the next year in the second column and so on. After five years, I can compare my answers and see the difference.

The questions

You might wonder what these questions are and how could there be 365 different questions. Well, I was astounded when I came across them first. They do have some queer questions I must say.

While some are serious and insightful,Β some are as simple as ‘what color dress are you wearing today?’ Or this.


And then, you have the ones that would claw you from within and remind you, your priorities.

It had been a while.

Some are for the record of it.


I kept filling the pages until the last two months of 2015 whence, I couldn’t continue. So, I decided to resume writing in there from the beginning of this year. It felt good writing again and hoping to see it filled in the next 5 years.

This diary will remind you of five years of your life. You could compare the answers and know the progress. It might sound strange. But a simple point in it might remind you of a nice event that you thought you had forgotten. This diary will also make a lovely and unexpected gift. I am not sure if this is available in India though. I feel they should make more like these. πŸ™‚

You could also use the five spaces for five members of your family. You won’t be able to use it for five years. But, this is also an alternative. πŸ™‚

        Thank u Ranjini! Can u explain what this Rangelz is?

        1. Rangelz

          It was a random name given to me by my senior at college. I took it up since the first 3 letters are the beginning of my name & then it eases into angel and ends with a z. The z is for a finesse πŸ˜›

            Ha Ha Ha !!! I didnt read between the lines the first time! Now I can spot the angel between the “R” and “Z”. Yes it suits you ! You are indeed an angel!! Way to go!!

    Hi can you pls ask your cousin where did she get this from? If from a website then which one?

    1. Rangelz

      Sure Pritha, I will. I did see one in Amazon. com. I don’t know the shipping charges. You can search for 365 days Q&A. Meanwhile, I will ask her πŸ™‚
