Hello, I am Andrew Maynard. I am a Catholic blogger. I am currently a Engineer in Training at Barry Engineering. I am a college graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering who loves Jesus, friends, family, and the buildings around us. Welcome to my blog. This site is an outlet from my creativity, to show the world something beautiful. It has been many things before what it is now, so remnants of those may exist. I chose not to rid of them so you can see where I was and where I am now.
I am a creative spirit. I am not truly a perfect artist (nor a real good one), but more of a child willing to learn anything given to him. I desire an outlet. This is not only a place for my art, but it is the area where my thoughts on random stuff goes. There resides my love of band, me being an Eagle Scout, and me as a college student and future Civil Engineer exist. I have opinions on anything from autism to pop culture, politics , comedy, and whatever else is active around the world, and I share them here.
I am autistic. I have Asperger’s syndrome. I was diagnosed when I was 5. Autism does affect how I interact with others, how I think, and how I see the world. I don’t like to admit that I have it, but at the same time, I’m hiding a part of myself without it. Autism is a way to describe who I am, but I am not only autistic. I believe that there is more to me than my autism, and that God loves me as the way I am created, without such labels.
I am ever grateful for Jesus Christ , from beginning of time to his death on the cross, his resurrection and now until forever. My belief and my religion is the center of my life, and words alone can not describe how wonderful and great God is and how he is made in impact on my life. I am a faithful Roman Catholic, but I also hang out with other Christians and share beliefs, because we all worship the same God and teach the same message: love. My belief affects my opinions of other things, as I was raised and I have grown to love God since my baptism when I was two months old. The purpose of this blog is show how God impacts my life, indirectly or directly.
