I find it intriguing how people can enter your life and can influence you without even realising. Without YOU even realising.

Everything with a mass has a force of attraction, right? We would not remain on earth if it wasn't for forces of attraction, the planets would not orbit the sun, the moon would not orbit the earth and the tides would not exist if there were no attractive forces. We are just molecular structures with a mass. Our mass is small. Our forces of attraction between each other are weak and have little impact.... or do they?

Do our paths cross because they are destined to? I am not sure I believe in destiny, but are the choices we make and the chances we take irrevelvant because science would have figured it all out anyway?

If you are wondering about the list above, it is about all the silly little things I would never ever have experienced or learnt and become important to me, if it wasn't for the people that have entered my life and had some kind of impact on me.

People that are very near and dear to me, people that are fleeting moments, people that are not still here to advise or guide, people that are no longer part of my life, people that are sporadically part of my life, people that are a daily part of my life, complete strangers.

People that know they have an impact, people that try to have an impact, people that have absolutely no idea of their impact.

I wonder if I have any impact or influence at all on other people. People in my past, the present and even in the future. I wonder if I have added to someones life even in the most minimal of ways. I wonder if it is positive or negative.

I have just re-read this post. I wrote it at 3am
This is what happens when you can't sleep in the middle of the night. Far too serious for a Sunday. In fact, far too serious for ME. Fuck it. I'm going to publish it anyway.


  1. I'm kind of glad you did decide to publish this post, it's actually given me a lot to think about, despite the fact some of it honestly does melt my head. Great post as usual.

  2. great post, made me smile...lots! :)

    Just saying!

  3. Want to smoke that pipe. (:

  4. Yeah, I stayed up 'til like 4am last night. Fun stuff...

  5. I was up all night with a delightful stomach bug. I won't go into details but lets just say there were many colours involved.

    I really like this post - I think you should make it a blog challenge, get all your readers to mame a similar list ?
    I have no clue what I would put on mine.
    Certainly not the person responsible for how my belly feels right now.

  6. *make

    clearly I am still not right

  7. The whole time I was reading this I was wondering about what time it was written. Not at all because of quality, but because of that philosophically hypnotic tone you only get while typing at 3 in the morning. I liked it a lot. FYI, I no longer smoke, but still love the smell of fresh pipe tobacco.

  8. I want to make a list like that. It may start bad though....(one more can't hurt, here..hold the wheel for a second, honey, did I mention how nice you look. )

  9. Well, I guess we've learned a bit more about Miss Teacher... a new tone of voice. I don't believe in destiny, Miss Teacher, for that would make me feel like a puppet in some grand scheme that wouldn't impress me, but isn't it great how someone can influence your life or make your day? A while ago a number of people I don't even know wrote comments in which they told me they were praying for me and hoping for me to get well soon. Now I'm not a religious person, but that was - and is - totally irrelevant. The impact was there.

  10. I am totally pronouncing the letter "h" that way from now on.

  11. hiii ... Nice Post ..

  12. I like posts that delve into how the mind works and what we think about. Posts that make a person stop and think are the best ones.

    Good job!

  13. I'm glad you posted this, it really made me think!

  14. @Waffles... I'm glad I published it now too.
    @Interwebs Fails... I want to smell that tobacco!
    @Nathan... I hate it when I can't sleep. I think of odd things in the middle of the night.
    @DCG... I hope you're feeling better now. Thanks for the insight into the workings of your digestive system! It was delightful! Haha.
    @ABFTS... 'Philosophically hypnotic tone?' Maybe this is why students often fall asleep in my class.
    @Barfly... If you make a list like that, I want to read it.
    @RCB... Perhaps you have indeed learnt a little more about me. I'm glad you're feeling a bit better now.
    @Elliot... Thanks for visiting my blog. And saying 'haitch' is definitely the way forward.
    @Dan... Thanks. The middle of the night is great for thinking about stuff.
    @Purple... Thanks. I'm glad too.

  15. Why thank you, Miss Teacher. That's a nice thing to say. That doesn't mean I'll stop keeping my eye on you, of course. Oh, one more thing - Azra, a friend of mine who lives in South Africa (and who has the coolest blog), has converted herself to Teaching Sly Bastards, too, and I think she may need your help, really. I suspect she's being too nice on them, for they keep taking these pictures of her.

  16. I've followed your blog for a while and noticed you have not posted lately. I miss your messages. They are funny. I hope you are having a wonderful day and are doing well.

    1. You really did a great job, i think this is a lesson for me to learn from you. I have a bad habit, I can never stick with one thing forever. But the way you are blogging from past 6 years really made me surprise...

  18. I read that book keeping is a part of accounting. Book keeping is recording transactions while accounting is recording, reporting and analyzing of financial information.
