Travel Diaries, Jericho AR 2019 [Part 2]// blog everyday in september day 23

This blog will have different phots.
I have to make several parts because I took so many photos. These photos are from my sudden trip down south. I said it was sudden because it was unplanned and unexpected. One of my aunts passed and the folks down south planned the funeral LITERALLY the week after my aunt died leaving me and my grandpa little time to get down there, save up enough money, etc.

These photos will be in the order that I found them in, or gathered them in. Here are some photos crossing the Miss River. This was on the way back. it was too dark to get any photos on the way there. And when I go down south in a few weeks it will be too dark then to get any photos. 

Since the next time I go, it will be at midnight. 

If it will be midnight maybe I can get some dawn photos! Let's put it that way.


The river looks so high. it looks like it's not even that far from the bridge. 


Honestly, the bridge and water does not look too far from my angle!


The water looks more clear in this photo. 


The only field I can get is the grass since corn is a summer crop. Some of these photos were taken my first day down there.


Now that's a small town. When I was in the burbs the pop there was 56K or more. 


Walked down the road. Here is some church that I saw during the walk I took.





That lawn looks like a mini parking lot.

I went to a funeral and regretted it. There were WAY too many people at that church. You may have seen how small it is in previous photos that I have posted. 




That is a small underpass. 



Green, green and more green.



The country road.



Country dusk is so amazing. How is it different than city dusk? You'll have to look at my dusk photos. You decide lol





Reaching the bridge going back into IL. I always wondered what that thing was on the bridge. That structure on the bridge


Ok there was some major flooding here.



This was a little rocky wall. I believe this is seen before crossing the bridge on the way there.

I honestly like going down south but the one thing I don't like is the 8-hour drive. Depending on what part of IL you're in it takes 4 hours to get out then you're in MO for like 2 hours. This bus ride will be longer since it stops in TN.

I'd fly since that takes like 2 hours but flying is more expensive. I would take the train because at least it has a dining car and a car with a bed.  The train is less pricy than flying. My mom and I plan on taking the Greyhound bus.

I'd like to know your preferred traveling method. Car? Bus? Flying? Train?

I honestly HATED that outfit. My grandpa is a wait until the last minute person and didn't think to ask his sister BEFORE we left what the attire will be. Didn't ask until AFTER we got down there and I didn't have the right attire. REALLY?!  that makes no sense to wait until AFTER you get somewhere to ask someone funeral attire!

I am not used to a small southern church because I grew up in the mid-west. I got southern vibes. Grass field.
it stopped raining.
Think of this as when your grandpa didn't think to ask what the attire for the funeral was and you have to do last-minute shopping travel apparel.

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…
