Now onto Raumati South. I went to kindy here when I was four, and my grandparents lived here for the first 12 or so years of my life.

Here's just some random street in Raumati South near the beach.

Also, I will definitely make it to the tutorial. There are nine or so weeks left in the semester, so plenty of time to attend...
Ah, that should be interesting. I'm doing "what causes terrorism?", critiquing the individual/organisational approach and placing it within a broader, global historical context. I've written 125 words so far, just some of my intro. I'll be mainly referencing the articles by Rapoport and Sedgwick, the "four waves of terror" theory.

My best friend from childhood lived at the far end of this street in Raumati South. As boys we ran around here all the time.

Yeah, I bet everybody has a hard time imagining me as a four year old running around playing, I know.

Hey Mia!

Also, this week's lecture and tute promises to get interesting. I get the feeling I'll be using some form of theological knowledge in any discussions that come up!

And here's Kapiti Island, offshore from the Kapiti Coast, as viewed from Raumati South.

I'm still so used to this island being offshore that despite living in Australia 10.5 years, no coastline really feels complete without Kapiti Island. Fuck I love it.

I'm spamming the shit out of this thread so we can move on to a non-lame location.

Can we ban Andrew from making threads or something?

To tell you the truth, I haven't even looked at the topic for this week.

I also missed last week's lecture. I had a major stress-out over essays and stayed home to do some work. Now I feel much more at ease about things.

Though I should go and do some work before sleep ...

I second that; how the hell have we ended up in Disneyland?

And yeah, I've been busy doing work and doing work and so on.

I found that this week's readings are fascinating, but that's probably because they relate directly to my main focus and interest in study.

"Religious reasons for terrorism". It'll be great.

OK, now we're moving north from Raumati South to my beloved hometown, Raumati Beach. I spent the first 10 years of my life here.

Best town on earth.

Let's start at the beach. This is actually looking towards the mouth of the Wharemauku River, with Kapiti Island's southern tip in the background.
