Welcome to My First Blog Posting!

Meez 3D avatar avatars games">

Welcome to my blog! Stick with me as it will likely take me a few weeks to get the hang of this and to have some interesting things to say. But don't worry if I can accidently rip my pants at the Papal arrival I am sure it won't take long for me to make a fool of myself in Baltimore.

So here is where I am at.

I am currently packing my things up at home and preparing for the big move St. Mary's Seminary in Baltimore. I am told that I am supposed to arrive on Thursday, August 21st between 9am-2:00pm. Earlier this month I was able to stop by St. Mary's and get a tour and was amazed by its beauty. It has beautiful grounds, is in a sweet neighborhood and the building itself is like something from the movies .....Hogwarts..... It has its own hotel for confrences and important guests, a beautiful chapel, amazing library, awesome classrooms and confrence rooms, a gym, a stocked dining room and even a pub. (once I am settled in I will post pictures)

I will be living in a my own dorm room, woo hoo, Trinity Alum I feel your pain, or will shortly.

There is a rule that pets are not allowed, which for any of you who have lived in a dorm before, makes perfect sense. Although I am not convinced that one of my college roommates of old, was not in fact an animal or at the least the missing link in evolution, but that is a posting for another day. But back to my point, Bellringer V may have some challenges. Now I contend he is not really a pet at all and more like a person trapped in a fish's body. Of course if that is a case I might be in some legal trouble for Bellringer I, II, III, IV. Never-the-less, stay tuned to see if I can smuggle the wee little fellow in. (Note: If anyone is reading this blog from St. Mary's, I am using an assumed name- I decided to use Andrew Nelson's name because he seems like a real nice guy, he works really hard and is a role model for all).

So there you have it. Welcome, stay tuned, keep checking in, post comments, add me to your favorites, let me know how life is treating you.

I am pleased to read your blog and enjoyed the work done by your graphic design team.

I am sure Bellringer I,II,III, IV had happy lives. I hope Bellringer V is able to contribute to your blog.

It will not be long until YOUR blog is is in the top 9,000,000.

I wish you well and will look for more posting starting Aug. 21st.

Hi Mr. Nelson.

Cute picture/ graphic thingy.

Anyway, it's good to see your doing well.

As for Bellringer, It might be easier than you think to get him in. My college won't allow pets with the exception of fish. You'll probably be able to keep Bellringer. Unless he's developed a habit of needing walks and chewing on furniture.

Anyway, I wish you luck.

great to see you on the interwebs mr nelson! i am so glad you decided to do this since you notoriously take 3 months to respond to emails and its impossible to keep track of you :P.

Hope your move into St. Mary's goes smoothly. You get to be a freshmen again! Ha i am sure you are so excited. i will definitely make a point of checking back frequently to see how you are doing. you have officially been added to my rss feed. you did a pretty good job for your first blog too, right up there with the pros. best wishes in your upcoming year. i will miss bumping into you at paneras when i am home from school.

p.s. that animation is going to haunt my dreams for months haha.

So you're saying that you have to smuggle a fish into the dorm??? That stinks! I don't know what I'd do without my fish tank! If Bellringer V makes it through the perilous journey alive at least you won't have to worry about him dying from water that's too warm, lol (I swear it was the lunch ladies' faults!!)

In any event I'm glad to hear that you're well and that you'll be suffering along with all us college students as you enter dorm life :-P You can stock up on Easy Mac and Ramen Noodles too, you know, really sell it.

Too cool, Mr. Nelson. I love the fact that you have a Meez thing.

I was having lunch with the seminarians from St. Kathryn's in Hudson (Brian Shook, Mike Satori, Peter Naranjo and Mike Zgnoc) the other day and they said that when they saw you they couldn't believe how old you were. They thought you were a teenager. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing in your case, haha. Take care at Hogwarts! I look forward to more blog posts.

Mr. Nelson,

Congratulations on joining St. Mary's seminary! That is such a great opportunity for you! Don't worry about Bellringer, St. Mary's will let you keep him. Who could say no to his cute little face? Hahaha just remember to feed him, okay? We do not want any repeats of this year's incident.. Anyways, good luck to you, and God Bless. Hope to see you soon!

My man! Miss you already Mr. Nelson! Thank you for everything, especially this summer. Going to Philadelphia was the most incredible experience. I know many of us are anxious to go back and continue the Lord's work.

I hope St. Mary's is awesomeee, sure sounds it! Can't wait to see you when you come back! As for school, well.. I've never had so much work, and in the first week of school too. Flaherty's pounding the history essays. We'll all try to get by though lol.

Catch you later Mr. Nelson! Good luck man.
