The first two days with Calvin was very bad because I forgot I had him and he ended up kind of starved. So, to make it up to him, I brought him with me to Camp Gualala.

There, we received great food and Calvin forgave me a little. (Yay) Afterwards we worked on making a trail, which was hard & streaneous but really fun. By the time we finished the trail, Calvin and I were covered with mosquito bites but we were still very satisfied with the work.

Then, we came back to berkeley and watched a movie. There, we learned that we should stick with PG and PG13 movies. Calvin agrees that watching people sucking faces (aka kissing) is very yucky.

A day later, Monday, we say a deer trapped in the creak near VLSB and Oxford. It was very sad but luckily, the deer was helped within two hours or three. The end.

I've always been a firm believer that hard work leads to good results. This was definitely one of those cases!


My week with Calvin started off with an odd sense of awkwardness, taking into account the many occasions I had briefly talked to Calvin but never got to know him, and that I hadn't gotten more than 4 hours of sleep a night since that Saturady.

Nonetheless we made the effort, and he joined us at crossroads for an after meeting meal. There we talked, laughed, and had a jolly time. We even got a taste of Tiffany's mastery of the English languages. In describing the taste of mustard greens she eloquently put: "it's not bitter, but bitterish." We hung out a bit more but decided to head back, since all of us, being me, Matt, Tiffany, and Kathren had work to get back to.

I unfortunately had a paper due the next day, so I told Calvin that he could rest while I was in the lounge but being the caring bear that he was, he decided to stay up with me. But poor Calvin had gotten sick that night due to the lack of sleep coupled with extremely cold weather. We both slept it off missing my chem class until it was finally time to turn in my paper, Calvin noticed that I was still asleep.

Being the thoughtful bear that he is he quickly came to my lecture which had apparently been over for an hour alraedy then to my GSI's office where he found nothing and no one, but my GSI's mailbox.

The week seemed to fly by and in sleping off his sickness Calvin was not able to go everywhere with me, but he was there in spirit. From sparring with my fellow boxing classmates, to putting tent on wood frames at Cazadero Calvin heard it all as soon as I got back. Not to mention the extremely well-behaved key club children at the district convention in Sacramento.

Despite having gotten off to an uneasy start, my countless bowls of cup noodles for Calvin and his endless list of endearing qualities we soon became the best of friends. I just hope that the next person won't let Calvin get attacked by the vicious zombies at Cafe 3.

I think Rocky and I share a special sort of bond and understanding. I got yo back, man. If you're ever sick, I'm going to get soup to you like a tourist on Oski.


Calvin and I started our week by going over to Joe's apartment with Linda and Peter. Linda hopped the fence to break into Joe's apartment, but once we were inside we made sandwiches.

Later on, we visited Jimmy, Yishi, dmitriy and Cary at their dorms, and topped it off by going to late night. The next day Calvin and I had lunch with my little sister Cheriz.

On Thursday, we went to the mainstacks in the library where we watched Peter run through the moveable shelves. He got stuck and started making choking noises and we thought it was funny until we realized it was real.

That night Calvin and I went to have cheese and wine at Kathleen's apartment, but I didn't let Calvin drink because I'm not sure if he's 21 yet.

We began the weekend by having a spaghetti dinner with Darcy and Manuel and topped it off on Sundy by watching the Lakers beat down the spurs by 21 points.

There's no doubt that Calvin is truly a Lakers fan. Waiting 2 years for Calvin was definitely worth the wait!

Humans laws don't apply to bears! I can drink if I really want to! ...But I like to set good examples for the young'uns. So good call, Hedwiggles.

I'm glad Peter didn't die that day!


So this week with Calvin has been really busy, but a lot of fun. We spent our first night together going to the Asian Ghetto with the other Circle K-ers. I caught him eyeing my crazy alfredo and he took a few bites when I wasn't looking.

The next few days were pretty relaxing. He tried to stay up as I pulled an all-nighter for my classics midterm, but he just couldn't make it. On Friday he went to set up for the disabilities dinner. He helped set up play areas for the kids. The next day we helped out at the Chinese Martial Arts Tournament. It got pretty boring so he snuck away for a few minutes to watch the tournament. He was amazed by all the different moves.

Afterwards we ewnt to Fenton's. Marggret and I thought we would be defeated by our huge sunday, but thanks to Calvin's help we were able to finish it. Although I will miss Calvin, at least I have these memories with him.



Once I got Calvin, we realized how much fun we would have with each other. First, he laerned the hip hop routine for DCON with me and later he helped me perfect my awesome moves.

Later, when we went home to SoCal, we met up with some of my old friends and had fun at Mac Grill and Knotts.

I had created a crown for Calvin to get him in the spirit of DCON. At DCON, Danielle stole Calvin when I was practicing the hip hop routine but she gave him back.

At DCON, Calvin had so much fun especially cheering when we won all those awards.

After DCON, Calvin rested and relaxed. These two weeks were awesome w/Calvin.
