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.

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…
