5 questions with guest interview

Hello Everyone! 


My name is Katie, and I am the person behind the student blog account called katies_studentdiary. Currently, I am a full-time student studying Adult Development and am working towards becoming an occupational therapist. I decided to start this Instagram account as a way for me to document my experiences throughout University. I have always loved the idea of creating a blog account but always kept pushing it off. I finally decided to start it after having an assignment based on starting a blog. With the current situation we live in, this blog has helped me reflect on the growth that I have seen in myself throughout this journey thus far. 

1. What’s your ideal scenario of a perfect marriage proposal?

When it comes to things like this, I am not very picky. I think the biggest thing for me is that it does not happen in public. I would personally not like the attention. Ideally, being proposed in a spot that meant a lot to my relationship would probably be ideal. It would kind of be cool to be proposed to in an area where we met as it would kind of be like this is where we originally started, and this spot is also where we are starting a new chapter. 

2. What’s a bad habit that you’re still trying to change? 

Procrastinating. I am so bad at this. Especially in University, where you always receive assignments well in advance, I still find myself grinding them all out at the same time to get them done. I am slowly starting to get better with this, but this is a bad habit I need to work on. 

3. When is the worst time to change your stand about a particular issue? Why or why not?

This is a tricky question. I think there is not any timeline to change your stand on a particular issue. People change their minds frequently, and I think that’s awesome. It shows that people understand problems a lot more, and they are willing to listen to arguments. I would have to say that there is no worst time to change your stand. As long as you are passionate about an issue and have information to back up your perspective, go ahead and stand up for what you believe and do not worry about a timeline.

4. If you witnessed a murder, would you tell your testimony in the court? Why or why not?

Short answer, yes. I think being honest about something as serious as this is of the utmost importance. If I have useful information to share, I will not hesitate to go in front of the court and help them solve their case. Plus, I watch many murder mystery shows on Netflix, and I see how helpful any type of information is to solve a case. I also would want people to have closure. Everyone deserves that.  

5. How would you comfort a child who just got bullied?

The very first thing I would do is hug them. There is nothing more comforting than a hug. I would then further tell them my personal story about bullying and tell them they are not alone in this experience. Bullying sadly happens to so many people, and I can advocate for how horrible the feeling is. I think sharing my story will allow them to feel comfortable with me in sharing theres. I would not pressure them at all to say anything either. Just merely talking, I think, would help them a lot. It certainly helped me, and I have become so much stronger because of it. 


  1. I so relate to the leaving assignments to the last minute! You full on (every year) tell yourself you'll do them earlier.. and then you've graduated! haha
