2022 Anything But Ordinary

A series of books by yours truly - JUDGEMENT AND PERCEPTION HAVE NO VALUE HERE.

Book 1 of Series

(of however many books in the series I would like)


My third Autobiography is a series, the first being written as my first and second books are being printed. A series of books that 'fills in the gaps' of my life and shows that the whistleblowing saga was exactly that. A saga in my Anything but Ordinary life.


COUNTRY TO CITY LIVING

Laidback. Compared to city living - you get to smell the roses.


YOUTH

With a bra size of the wondrous 10DD I was buying alcohol at 16 and a half for myself and friends. Youth underaged drinking in regional South Australia with and without parental supervision was not uncommon.


A LIFE OF ENDLESS LIVES

One Testing Experience Too Many. A Life Of Endless Lives and A Yellow Curtain Blind.


TEACHING

Aquatics Teaching as a teen forced you to grow up quickly if you wanted to keep your job in a small town. The older sister in the family, I was already very sensible. Teaching enhances that sense of responsibility and grooming public conduct to consider the watchful judgement of others.


Almost two decades teaching swimming, many students saying Hi in the local supermarket, I've never been caught with my finger up my nose. Thank God my parents taught good manners.


LOVER TO LOVER

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite." - Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom.


I was in love in every relationship I've ever known and broke up with each of them with no regrets in wanting the relationship back. I love all my friends too, yet I do not feel that love is to suffer over and over again at the hands of anyone. A sorry said more than twice is not a mistake.


POETRY

Poems by yours truly.


STUDY

Never Stop Learning. No one knows everything and you never know enough.


VOLUNTEERING

The most important things I have achieved in life have not been on a payroll.


FREEMASONRY

"The source of every crime, is some defect of the understanding; or some error in reasoning; or some sudden force of the passions. Defect in the understanding is ignorance; in reasoning, erroneous opinion." - Thomas Hobbes, Leviathan


OPINION

Opinions are like assholes, everyone's got one - these are mine.


RANDOM SH*T

Anything but Ordinary random sh*t.

Anything But Ordinary is not just the title of this autobiographical series. It is the eighth track on Avril Lavigne's debut album Let Go released 2002. It was written by Avril Lavigne, Lauren Christy, Scott Alspach and Graham Edwards. I was Absolutely in *Love* with this Album when it came out and still today. This Song is my Favourite Song on the album. Often referenced as like Avril myself in my late teens and early 20’s - it is a touch odd the assumption that songs and social life define people. Anyway, slight book title explanation and here's the lyrics for y'all too.


'Sometimes I get so weird

I even freak myself out

I laugh myself to sleep

It's my lullaby

Sometimes I drive so fast

Just to feel the danger

I want to scream

It makes me feel alive


Is it enough to love?

Is it enough to breathe?

Somebody rip my heart out

And leave me here to bleed

Is it enough to die?

Somebody save my life

I'd rather be anything but ordinary please


To walk within the lines

Would make my life so boring

I want to know that I

Have been to the extreme

So knock me off my feet

Come on now give it to me

Anything to make me feel alive


Is it enough to love?

Is it enough to breath?

Somebody rip my heart out

And leave me here to bleed

Is it enough to die?

Somebody save my life

I'd rather be anything but ordinary please

I'd rather be anything but ordinary please


Let down your defenses

Use no common sense

If you look you will see

That this world is a beautiful

Accident turbulent succulent

Opulent permanent, no way

I want to taste it

Don't want to waste it away


Sometimes I get so weird

I even freak myself out

I laugh my self to sleep

It's my lullaby


Is it enough?

Is it enough?

Is it enough to breath?

Somebody rip my heart out

And leave me here to bleed

Is it enough to die?

Somebody save my life

I'd rather be anything but ordinary please


Is it enough?

Is it enough to die?

Somebody save my life

I'd rather be anything but ordinary please

I'd rather be anything but ordinary please


Avril Lavigne song Anything but Ordinary from her debut album Let Go.
