WHERE DOES THE TIME GO: HOW TIME TICKS AND MAKING THE MOST OF LIFE IS IMPORTANT

“Keep yourself busy, time surely does.”


Get up, go to work, come home, eat sleep, do it all over again. So many people have a daily routine that consists of the same thing day in and day out. Never trying anything new in life, their life remains constant. Then the days go by and before you know it, you have spent years doing nothing. This is the life for so many people in America. Totally fine if you’re doing something you love to do for a living. But there are so many people who don’t; and for them it’s depressing. Well why, why do so many people waste time doing nothing with their lives.

See, me myself, I work two part time jobs while working on my real career path. So after work I work on my novels, screenplays, and filmmaking in the computer lab. Since 2012 I have been continuously working at getting better and better. From the moment I sit in the seat in the computer lab, you’d be surprised how much time ticks away. There have been days I enter the lab at 9:00 a.m., then look up and it’s 1:00 p.m. I continue to work and next thing I know the clock is at 7:00 p.m. I look outside to confirm this change in time. The sky is dark and evening has set in, while I work for the next few hours. At roughly 10:40 p.m. I leave and go home. It’s tough because you’re working toward something, yet no income is initially coming in.

But what about the others, what about the people who do nothing but exist. They not only just work their jobs, they hate their jobs, and see themselves going nowhere. What a tough way to live your life. Some of these people will find their way and eventually land on their feet. Others will never find their way and forever live in misery. Such a tortured life, live to the end and regret every minute of it. Sitting around and watching everyone else live thier lives, yet you never make a move to live your own life. Well, why do people sit around and not make a move with their lives.

Some of it is due to the lack of motivation and some comes from the fact that they are not good at anything. Not having a real discernable skill is depressing as well. Because having a discernable skill not only aids in you generating a living, but also contributes to your happiness. See, in the end, we all have this idea of where we want to be in life. Getting there is the hard part. Problem is, most people will never reach that point. Not only reach that point, but will also never find what it is they’re good at in life.

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.
