Can we just talk about how the whole idea of job interviews really puts autistic people at a disadvantage? For many reasons. It’s like a mind game to try and throw you off and make you think quick. Which is bad for autistic people who rely on scripts to function, like myself. Sometimes no amount of preparation can be enough- you can prepare and script out responses to the most common questions but there’s no way of knowing what they’re actually gonna end up asking. Ive heard of interviewers purposefully avoiding the typical interview questions so that people can’t prepare answers beforehand and are forced to answer spontaneously which sucks. There’s so many unspoken social rules around interviews, way too many to remember, and they really read into things like your body language and eye contact etc. which is very unfair. Fuck interviews tbh- they just feel to me like a way to test if you’re neurotypical enough.
While the impeachment of South Korea’s president is a serious affair, we all needed a little laugh at the end of the day. Who better to provide it than a go-to source for many of us Korea reporters, Bob Kelly. Kelly was appearing on the BBC via Skype when his younger family members decided they, too, wanted to appear on international television.
As someone who works from home and has two small children as well as unruly cats, this is pretty much a regular occurrence. How it hasn’t happened while I’m broadcasting live yet is a mystery to me.
Ok I’ve been thinking about this long and hard, and I think one of the reasons why everyone gets the assumption that yoongi is cold and hard is because they never really showed much footage of him during earlier eras. During bangtan bombs or interviews he wouldn’t interact or talk much (compared to the rest of the members) and I think people mistook that for indifference.
He’s also said that he’s awkward expressing his emotions outright, so he tries to express with actions how he feels. People see this hard facade and think that he’s cold but half the time he’s just being a dork. He’s one of the most loving and hard working people I’ve ever seen and he would do anything for the people he loves.
I just wish people would get their heads out of their ass and notice this.
