Today Crazy Monkey and I made friends waiting for our bags at the Fresno Airport. It was a long and tiring flight from Dallas and we both just wanted to get home. CM was really excited to see the dorms! He had never seen inside a college dorm before. But, before going to the dorms, CM and I were hungry and we went to get some food at Chipotle with Alex Furr, Blakley Goldberg and Raven Fox. We also ran into Veronica Wilson and Taylor Thompson. It was so much fun but then we got really tired. CM had a nap in my room while I unpacked and showered. Then we both went to sleep, excited for the day off on Monday!

CM and I woke up and he wished me good luck in class, he didn't really want to come and learn biology. CM just chilled out in my room that I share with Madi Parrish for the day. He thought that he was pretty lucky to be getting to spend time with both me and Madi!

I had class again early and CM slept in! He missed out on coming to practice, but we were both really excited. My family was arriving from Australia at 2 p.m.! Crazy Monkey was jumping out of his skin with excitement and completely messed up our room while he was waiting for my family to arrive. I didn't mind because it was a pretty exciting day. CM and my family got along great!

The day before game day, CM was really lazy and didn't want to get up for class again, so I went off to biology again alone. After practice CM helped me study for my Biology test. We didn't get to see my family vey much today because of school and practice but we talked on the phone and it was still fun.

Game day! CM woke me up and was so excited for the game. He couldn't wait for 7 o'clock tip off. Very sneakily he watched over us at shoot around making sure no one was spying on our practice and making sure we didn't hurt ourselves. After shoot around, he spent the day with my family because I had a test. He watched the game with my family in the stands, I could hear him cheering so loudly! After the game he gave all the girls a high-five and told us that we were awesome. Thanks CM!

CM was laughing at me today, while I was cleaning our room. There was such a huge mess and he did not help at all. CM told me that he was really enjoying living in the dorms, but he didn't know how much longer he could do it for, sharing a bathroom and all of that. I told him it was living the college experience! But he just shook his head.

Madi and I woke up bright and early for practice, CM wanted to go but he was worn out from all the homework he helped me out on the night before and slept in. Coach Frank was a bit disappointed, he missed CM and wanted him at practice, when I got back to my room I told CM and he was really sorry he missed practice. We spent the afternoon we my family, watching the new Twilight movie `Breaking Dawn' and then eating Panera Bread. It was a pretty good day!

Game Day! CM and I woke up early for shoot around and Madi drove us to the Save Mart Center. CM was really excited to get to see the team again and Coach Frank was happy to see CM at practice. During shoot around, CM was watching over us and making sure no one got hurt and cheered loudly for everyone. CM got us really pumped up for the game against Stanford. On the way to the game, he was giving us little tips about things that we could do during the game, like `be confident'. Rachael looked after him during the game, CM was cheering so loudly for us. Unfortunately, the game didn't go our way, but CM said that he was still really proud of the effort that we all put in. After we ate and got changed, CM came into the locker room and told me that he really enjoyed the week he spent with me and my parents, but now Bree's family was here and he was going to spend some time with them. I was sad to see CM leave, but excited for him making new friends with Breezy!
