Ask Andy #1: About Me

Welcome to My Blog!

I will be doing a little reworking of my blog in the next few week as I don’t have many regular readers. Last week’s post also disappeared due to a technical glitch. My blog has currently a extremely broad range of topics, and that may change. This is the start of a series called Ask Andy, a continuous Q &A, with questions either by readers or my own relating to a theme. Please comment below this post to ask a question, or ask my Facebook. This will happen the first Wednesday each month. I am interested in the questions to be asked. This week is 15 questions about me.


  1. What is Your Full Name?

Andrew Steven Maynard. It means “manly,”” crowned,” and “strength” respectively. It is such a powerful name.

2. Where are you from?

I am from Houston, Texas. I lived in the Katy area for most of my life until college.

3. Where do you live?

I live in Austin, Texas, on the University of Texas at Austin campus.

4. Where do you go to school?

I am going to the University of Texas at Austin. Hook ’em Horns!


5. What is your major?

I am currently  an Architecture major, but I plan to transfer to Architectural Engineering in the near future.  I have had a whole dilemma about it, as such the rite of passage for college students.

6. What is your favorite color(s)?

My favorite color is Sky Blue. A clear sky is brilliant, yet soothing. Kelly Green is my second favorite color, due to my former high school, and it is the color of life.

7. What is your religion?

I am a Roman Catholic. I believe in God, the father; Jesus, the savior; and Holy Spirit, the consoler. I was baptized at an early age, and have remained in the church since then. I also accept other Christian denominations, as we all believe in the same God, just differences in practice.

8. What is my favorite musical artist?

I am obsessed with Owl City. I am very likely to be listening to it right now, or any of Adam Young’s projects. I also like Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Tiffany Alvord, and Pentatonix.

9. Do you have any hobbies?

I like Origami, playing cards and playing the piano. I have played the Clarinet and bass clarinet, but it’s been years.

10. What is your favorite sports/ sports team?

I like football, and my favorite team is the Houston Texans. I also like to follow the Texas Longhorns in football, basketball, and volleyball.

11.What is your favorite movie?

I would say The Avengers.  I also like any family oriented comedy as any Disney movie, some Dreamworks, and some others. I also like action-oriented movies like the new Star Wars, or any Marvel movie.

12. What is my favorite TV show?

I like Phineas and Ferb, due the creativity in plot direction and characters.  I also like Doctor Who, the Flash, and Scorpion.

13. What is my favorite book series?

I like the Inheritance series (Eragon, Eldest, etc.) I also like the Percy Jackson and Olypmians, and Harry Potter.

14. What is my political views?

I consider myself a conservative, but that’s mainly due to my upbringing. I also do tend be more liberal towards issues of race, social justice, and the environment.

15.  Where do I see myself in 5 years?

I don’t know exactly, but hopefully with a job in the engineering field in Texas. I should be living on my own, hopefully having either a wife or a girlfriend.

Until then,
Andrew Maynard
