KNOWING ISNT ALWAYS KNOWING: HAVING AN EDUCATION IS NOT EDUCATED

“Knowing too much of nothing.”


the learned

We have so many people in our world who are scholarly individuals. But what happens when you’re dealing with a person with such a high aptitude as it pertains to learning, but they have no true knowledge of the world in which they live. Meaning, they can break down Albert Einstein equations, but they lack the common sense in dealing in society.

falling into the trap

So many people are under the illusion that if you go to college and attain your degree in your field, you qualify to be some sort of expert. When in reality, that is just the foundation for what you know. Meaning, a degree in sociology only qualifies you to really say you are ready for graduate school. The outside time and energy you have to put into really knowing us as people, to master the social landscape that is us as people takes years upon years.

knowing and knowing

When you know you know, and you are able to apply what you know to life. But sometimes people are too learned are so convinced that they start to lose site of rationale. You can research and read, but there has to also be a degree of life experience as well. You can read up on politics and be a student of politics. But once you’re on the inside, it’s a whole other story. So throughout life, gain the knowledge from whatever books you read, articles you seek out, but also live in the research.

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 since 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my filmmaking.
