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.

How Autism Greatly Limits My Ability To Work A Job

I am trying to apply for SSI, got denied twice because they claim 'my conditions are not bad enough to keep me from working.' I got a call from the layers I am going through and I have to go to court. That probably will get denied too. It's harder now for people to get SSI because of people who leech off of benefits that they don't need. It's harder for us since we are not physically disabled. I thought I explain how my ability to perform a job is greatly limited to the point where getting a job will be basically impossible.

You are aware the gov shut down for 34 days last month and there were articles about food stamps and WIC being affected. I shared it on a page and this asshole told me to 'get off my ass and get a job.' I call these people assholes because getting a job is not that simple, one cannot walk into Target and come out with a job. You have to send in applications and it's you vs hundreds, thousands of people wanting the same job. Another t…

My Struggles With Finding A Job

I am currently unemployed due to my autism. I have trouble finding a job that fits my needs and has the settings that I require. I will perform better if the job has no sensory triggers. If the jobs have these sensory triggers, it will be hard to perform a job at 100%. I will be showcasing how it will be hard for me to find and keep a job due to my autism. In fact, many of us struggle to find and hold down a job. Around 80% of adults with autism are unemployed. Why is this? There are several reasons as to why most of us struggle with getting or keeping jobs.
Reason Why Finding/Holding A Job Will Be Hard
No Jobs With The Settings I Need To Function, I need a job that doesn't have a lot of people, no noise, where I can work at my own pace, with direct clear instructions, low stress, low anxiety, no lifting due to my shoulder injury and arthritis flare-ups. The list can go on. I can't function without these settings. Retail jobs such as fast-food and stores get busy at specific tim…
