Can guys and girls be 'just friends'?

Hi everyone,

Hope you're well? This (blogging) is the last thing I should be doing right now. I have a group debate tomorrow morning and I'm supposed to write something towards it, which I haven't done yet. I hope none of my group members see this. lol

Anyway, I just read an article on Bella Naija and that inspired this post. What do you think about this- 'Can guys and girls be 'just friends' and how long for? By the way, when I say friends, I don't mean just acquaintances, I mean like really good friend/close friends. Don't you think at least one party would end up 'liking' the other sooner or later? What are your thoughts? More importantly, what are your experiences?

Leave a comment below, I want to read from you :)

Here's what I've been up to...

One of the things I love about being back at Uni is that I no longer have the 'Sunday evening fever'. You know the thought of starting a new week and going to work? Yeah, that. It was quite depressing. Ok ok, I exaggerate. But that just gives you an idea of what it was like. I'm glad it's over and by God's grace, once I start work again, I would actually enjoy it and look forward to it. So this is me saying farewell it 'Sunday evening fever'.

Anyway, the purpose of this is just to bring you up to speed with what's been going on with me. I started my Masters about two weeks ago and it's been good, it's going well. One thing I've noticed though, the library is always pretty full and it's just beginning of term. I can only attribute this to one of two things (or both). 1) New term enthusiasm- you know when you start the new school year and you make up your mind to be very diligent. In the first, second and third week you keep to your promise, by the fourth week, you start to falter bit by bit and by the fifth week, you can be found anywhere but the library. Yea, that. It's very similar to a new year resolution. 2) The other reason I attribute to the library being full is that people are actually scholars and the work load actually pushes you to the library. My gut feeling is that it's actually more of the second reason. But anyway, time will tell. Hopefully, I will still be at the library to carry out the experiment :D

My summer felt like it was really packed, but I can't exactly tel, you what it was packed with. I can't remember doing anything as such, but I just felt like life was moving so fast and I always had something on my mind. Actually, I know what happened, work was quite stressful. I got back really late most days. The the main reason though, was that I had drifted from God and so I just always felt like I was carrying the weight of the world. But thank God, I mended my ways and I'm back with my Lover (I wrote a note about this on Facebook. If you're friends with me on FB, you can check it out). It was also because of this that I stopped blogging, I just couldn't. This period also made me realise that I really couldn't do anything without God- even everyday tasks and when I did do them, it would take so much effort on my part.

I was also looking to get a scholarship for my Masters and I was waiting for that in the earlier part of summer and the waiting period was quite tense and unfortunately, I didn't get it :(

So yes, this is just me bringing you up to speed with my life since July (which was when I last blogged). I'll try and do this more often, blog I mean, but I'm making no

P.s- I've seen a few blogs where people have weekly segments such as 'Monday chit chat or Monday Morning banter'. Should I start something like that? If yes, what are your suggestions? What would you like to have me blog about weekly? I have to add though, the big question is can I commit to it? Anyway for starters, just leave your suggestions below and we'll take it from there.
