Travel Diaries// Going Back To AR (the arrival)
Since 2010, I haven't set foot in TN. Fortunately, we caught the bus and the bus stopped in Memphis. The train stops there and probably the airplane. Here is a blog post while on my way. It was dark when I left so I couldn't do much. Night traveling is cool if you're going somewhere well lit. it was for like 10 minutes but I wanna have my moment. I added some extra photos to try and make the blog look a bit better.
Here is a photo of my backpack all packed. I packed some drinks and a snake to hold me over until the bus stopped.
It was starting to get lighter outside. I couldn't get any of my fabulous landscapes because it was too dark to get any photos.
A bad image of the Memphis arch. This was when we were being picked up from the bus station. My 70 MPH photo skills are rusty. For sure.
There is the train crossing the bridge.
Got some photos on the highway. Although it did look cool.
The bus station was near an airport.
Ii made myself a lattee and some ice cream. It was really good.
Here's some travel coffee. I am a big coffee drinker. I added some whipped cream and chocolate sauce for my coffee.
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 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…
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…
