There's been some confusion about this. Here's the deal:
Journals and other Out of Game RP always get rewarded along with the next session's awards for in-game stuff. The Bonus XP you get -this- time always includes your Journal entries from _last_ time.
Think of it like getting a paycheck next week for the work you do this week. You also work next week, but that paycheck doesn't come until the week after. The paycheck in your hand -right now- is from the work you did _last_ week.
