My First Travel Blog! [Jericho, AR Spring 2019]

I didn't even expect this trip. I was expecting to come in May sometime. Then the unexpected passing of my late aunt came and my folks down south sent someone to come get us. It's been a gloomy let fun time. I started this blog while I was still out in Jericho. You guys better thank me for this. I am doing this with the slowest connection in the world. I finished the blog when I returned home.
I took this photo when I was ready to leave.

It was too dark to get any videos or photos. 




We ended up having to turn around because my grandpa forgot his meds. He thought he packed them. We were a good 20 mins away when my mom called me.


Somewhere in Illinois. The state is so big I don't remember half of the cities here.





Just dead corn fields. Corn doesn't grow until the summer.





It was getting dark while we were on the road. We didn't leave until like 4. We still had ways to go before getting out of Illinois when it got dark/



Look at the nice dusk sky with the farmland. The golden hour is amazing.




The sunset was just amazing on the road. It's breathtaking.



It was way too dark to take any more photos. No street lights like in the city.



I got in like an hour before midnight.



Sweet daylight. I missed you.



I wonder what is across the tracks?



That crossing seems kinda dangerous. Thank God for the train horn. It kept me up but horns save lives.



An old trailer of some sort. I decided to do some exploring now that it was daylight and I can see.





This photo was taken safely. I made sure no train was coming.



It's just a field...









I was heading to a funeral. We trailed each other there with everyone having their hazard light on. Not sure if that is a southern thing but in Illinois, you do that if you are burring the body and you follow the hearse.



That church looks small. It gave me anxiety.



I didn't want to go to the funeral. I would have stayed home if someone else was staying.




You think this is a lake but it's not.



I got these headphones from the Dollar General. And they're cool. Very cool.



There are some nice houses in the area. Very nice houses.


The only field I could get a photo of. 

I am not a morning person.


Just look at that breathtaking image.



Time to head back home. It was fun while it lasted. Let's just appreciate the golden hour...




About to cross the IL/MO Stateline bridge.



The bridge.



The Miss. River. It does look kinda high. Is it always that high?



That's not apart of the river.



What kind of power line is this?



Well, no fields were planted yet. That's all there is to look at and it gets boring.  I took way more photos than you see. I will have some of my photos at my Redbubble store.  You can look at my IGs to see some clips in my stories and the photos that I took.  My main one.  And my art IG.  I can't post the clips because they pass the file size limit. The full vlog will be on my Steemit blog. 
You can watch the vlog here. 

You would love to have these photos as some decor, wouldn't you? Redbubble has sales every so often so you can catch a sale if you can't afford the full price.

Jobs For Adults With Autism

Just got fired from your 12, 20th etc job? Or are you just out of your luck and can't find any jobs that fit your needs. I will be explaining some jobs I feel are right for adults with autism that you can probably do remotely. This is my opinion but everyone is different and will have different skills. I did research for this blog post. I always to research before covering certain topics.


Sometimes 'real world' jobs are not for us. They are built the around neurotypical force. Remember that NTs don't have the issues that we have. We are sometimes forced to accommodate the Nts and that is not right. This article talks about the jobs that I feel is right for us. It will probably be won't be a walk in the park to get. It's better than being fired from several jobs due to your differences.

I am actually trying to land some freelance work myself. I feel freelance work is great for some of us because you can do it your way and the clients will come if …

How To Give Criticism To Autistic People

I am a content creator. You're going to get feedback from people on how they feel you can do a certain thing better. I am tired of arguing. I am tired of taking their feedback the wrong and they think I can't take criticism. It's common for people on the autism spectrum do not handle certain types of criticism. It could be a low self-esteem thing as well. With us, we need a different approach to getting feedback. Another thing I have noticed is if I am not understanding what the person wants me to do because there are no visuals I can refer to, they will think I don't want their feedback if I try to explain why it will not work for me. This person told me they didn't like it when I read what the game is saying when I play games like Undertale, I will attach a link to one of my lets plays so you know what I am talking about. where you can make your own voice for the character. I explain I read what the screen is saying because if I don't, the viewers will get bo…

Jobs That Are NOT For Adults With Autism

I made a blog article on jobs that would work for adults with autism. However, I think we should cover the jobs that you should avoid if you are on the autism spectrum. This is just my 2 cents. Everyone is different.

It's rough for people with autism to find steady employment. It's important that you avoid these jobs. Most people with autism have poor short term memory. I am one of these people. I have issues with high demand jobs that call for you to remember a lot of things.  I don't know about you, I cannot handle several tasks at the same time. I am a one at a time person. Do this then move on to the next task when I am done.

Retail/Fast-food

People on the autism spectrum should avoid retail/fast-food jobs. In fast-food, chances are you will be given several tasks at once. That would be too demanding on me because I need time to process, adjust, etc.  Same with retail like grocery stores. You may be given several tasks to do at one time. You w…
