I write informational and educational blog posts about autism and mental health. For instance, I write about my struggles with autism, employment issues among autistic adults. For mental health, I write about anxiety and depression. This will include my struggles with the disorder. How to help someone with the disorder etc.

Travel Diaries// Summer Friendship Festival 2013|| BEDIS day 22
These are my old travel photos. This was taken in 2013 when I went to a festival in Will County ( I think). It was about a 2-hour drive from Chicago. The country held this festival every summer. A lady I helped out over the summer sells things at these festivals so I went with her. I went 2 different days so you will see photos taken at different times

I got a good view of this Farris Wheel. I did record a video as well. I might find my travel videos and post them to my Verond channel so I can link them on here. They weren't really vlogs just some clips that I randomly recorded of my trips.
Everyone is out enjoying the festival. What is a travel trip without taking pictures?
Sometimes I take more copies of my photos to see which one I like better. When you look good enough, it is a good landscape of the trees.
There is the Starship ride. I didn't get on it because these rides make me super dizzy. I do not like being dizzy. It makes me feel sick. Here are more people walking around the festival.
The bumper car ride. The only time you can drive a car as a kid. Even then I was a good driver. It would have been nice to get a photo(s) of me on the rides, however, I didn't have a friend with me. The friend could get the phots while waiting says, for example, they didn't want to get on the ride.
There were some games at the fare.
It was getting dark. I like traveling at night. You get cooler photos. That is if the place you're going to is lit up at night. If it's not lit up, then it will be a challenge to vlog/take photos.
This is the night time photo. I am praying for the day when phones get good night photos. Or at least they come with a microlens.
A very blurry far away photo. Like I told ya, I wish phones got good night photos. Also, at this time I was still learning how to take photos.
These are all of my festival photos. I will upload my travel videos to my Verond channel and add them here. You will see that later on since I preplan my content.
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. Freelance Work
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 …
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…
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.
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…
