NEW BROOMS SWEEP CLEAN, JUST WAIT!

“Why is it so hard to keep it up?”

Ever hear the term, “A new broom always sweeps clean?” People always put their best foot forward up until a certain point. But why is it so hard to keep that going? The reason being is that we put on airs because we don’t want people to see the real us. Yet eventually, we all get a chance to see that person for who they truly are in this world. Trust and believe that they’ll show their asses. This may personify itself on a job, relationship, and or in day-to-day society.

Look at when you’re on a job for instance. The new broom is the person that dresses nice their very first day. Or better yet, their first month on the job is going to be picture perfection. But what about one year into the job when you’re showing up 10 – 15 minutes late. Instead of being cordial like in the beginning you wind-up having confrontations with your employer. Initially you ask coworkers who want something from the store for lunch. Then you eventually go off to lunch without even asking anyone around. You’ll put extra work into your job in the beginning then enough time goes by for you to be the status quo guy. Your smiles will turn into frowns and your wanting to be at work will become watching the clock all day long.

Now that’s just a job, what about a relationship? Men love to open car doors for a woman. We need to prove chivalry is not dead. Women turn into Susie Homemaker because she loves catering to her new man. Then the time sets in and the real people come out. He begins ignoring his phone calls and she begins to nag in his ear. He starts to curse you out of your name and she is breaking your car windows. Why because it’s hard to keep up something that’s not you. I mean think about it, how many men actually consistently open car doors. And how many women consistently cater to their men.

But what about living in day-to-day society. People’s interactions in society are fresh and new, especially when you live in a new city. Like for me, when I first moved to New York City, I was so Mr. Niceguy from the Midwest. After a while, I started to talk and think like a New Yorker. Because in order to survive here it required being a lot tougher than I’m used to being. So in the end, the new broom sweeps the way it does because we all put our best foot forward. We don’t want to come off aggressive because sometimes it’s not about being fake. Sometimes we want to bring people into our lives slowly. Make people understand you, then they can go I like this person, despite their faults rather than this person is just a jerk.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
