Before I head out for a dinner appointment, I was just on MSN chatting with another ex-student who had contacted me. He is a former Victorian. I had almost ended up teaching there despite being posted to a neighbourhood school. See, my mentor teacher then had requested for me three times but I said that I would let the divine powers put me where I should be. Sometimes I do wonder how things might be different if I had started off teaching in an autonomous school instead.

Well, my point being - this seems like the season for my ex-students to contact me. Paths which diverged in the past now seem to cross again. On one hand, I do feel a little less younger but on the other, I do see the efforts I had put into establishing relationships with my former charges while I was a full-time teacher now coming one full circle (or circles) to lure me back into the job again. Eh, I know the answer to that and I will not mention it here of course.

I have to run. Yes, am meeting a former BB NCO (not from SAS), who was one of my most dynamic, fun loving and compassionate leader I have known to date, for dinner.
