Alright, I said I'd give an RL post, but instead of having it be in long paragraphs, these will be very quick rundowns of the main things that occured throughout the week:

The presentations of our personal projects were going on today and continuing the next day. Thankfully, these were half days, plus we got Friday off. Most of the presentations were well-done but 'meh'. Didn't keep my attention well. I gave my presentation today and it went pretty well, I guess. We then had to go meet with a few teachers after that. My homeroom teacher showed me my scores on my presenation. I was surprised at the amount of 4's (on a scale of 1-4) on there. Yes, I was very happy about this. Surprised, but happy. And relieved, too, because I nearly ran out of time during my presenation and had to leave out a few details, some that I really wanted to share, too (more details on the alien abductions). Oh well, I was just glad to have it over with. Oh yeah, and the best presentation was the one on DEAD WHALES. THAT PRESENATION WAS AWESOME. WHY COULDN'T WE HAVE MORE PRESENATIONS LIKE THAT? WHY AM I SUDDENLY ABUSING THE CAPS LOCK KEY?

More presentaions. toggy and her group went up and did their presenation on California. It was very good. :)
And I can't really remember anything else that happened today other than that...yes...

I had to get a blood test today and then had to go see my doctor (the one who checks on how I'm doing on my meds and if I'll need to increase the dose or not). The visit with my doctor wasn't as bad as the previous visits, thankfully. My boxing lessons were cancelled because my coach was stuck in traffic. Hate to say it, but I was pretty relieved by this as I just didn't feel much like excercising today. Probably because I was lazing around for most of the day and wanted to continue doing that. I played a bit of Final Fantasy X, a game I thought I had given up on for good the moment I had gotten to the random battles, but now I'm just addicted to it. In fact, I'm rushing with this journal entry so I can get off the computer and go play it some more.
At night, my family and I watched Wait Until Dark. Great, suspenseful movie. I was surprised to hear that Hitchcock didn't make it. I was a little disappointed that I didn't get any scares at all (my parents said that this was the scariest movie they've ever seen. Bah.) and just a few jumps, but the writing, timing, and suspense of it really made up for the lack of scares. I think I'll watch it again sometime, only in a darker, quiet setting, and maybe I'll get a better sense of the atmosphere. But don't get me wrong, I really, really enjoyed it, and hope to see it again another time.

Most of the day was spent playing more FFX and watching Gundam SEED. Both things don't mix too well as they're both quite addicting and thus making it hard to decide between which I want to do first and if I want to quit one to do the other. I was glad to catch up on SEED (I'm up to..episode 31 or 32 I think). I won't give away any spoilers, but I know that episode 30 is probably going to be on my top 10 list of favorite episodes of this series, just for the fight between Kira and Athrun at the end of the episode alone. Holy fuck that fight was amazing. Really shocking, too. The episode following it was also great. Lots and lots of angst. Mm.
Dad and I went to see Red Eye that night, and he loved it, which I was very glad to hear. We almost brought Mom along, but I think after I told her about the 'pen scene', she was a bit more hesitant to go (she's got a very low tolerance for most violence, particularly if looks painful or has a lot of blood in it). Then again, when watching it for a second time, I noticed the scene really wasn't all that bad as I had remembered it, and she probably could've handled it. Ah well.

Overall, not a bad week. Except for Tuesday night, but I'll spare you the details on that as it was mostly just me being really emo.

Now I must go play more FFX.
