CHANGE I WISH I COULD BELIEVE IN: THE ADJUSTMENT FROM COLLEGE TO SOCIETY FOR YOUNGER GENERATIONS

Group Hand Fist Bump

“Surviving the adjustment.”


the real world

This school year just started for a lot of incoming freshmen into college. As for the seniors that walked across the stage this past summer, their worries are about to start. Because they are stepping into the workplace environment. What does mean for them? You’re talking about a generation that has been used to a lot of coddling for the greater portion of their lives. Now they have to matriculate into this new world where things are not handed to you. You will not be rewarded a 10th place ribbon unless you are in the top three. But what is it about the business environment that makes life hard?

you’re the creator

When building your career it is going to be you against the world. So however far you go will ultimately be up to you. You need to be the decision maker for your life will become. And that is when the frustration and true anxiety set for the first time. How do you tailor make your life to be what you want it to be. I wonder how many people can honestly do this. The how is as you get on the job you will feel out what is you seek to become.

expectations and standards

We all look at like ourselves as more that what we are in society. And because we dilute ourselves into more great than we are, we have these expectations and dreams that take years and years to plan. Then you take years for yourself to grow financially. But our social media has made life this ready made existence that is nowhere near the real thing.So, so many young people in the workplace are having a harder time time. But it’s no harder than prior generations. They are just not ready because we gave them so much too soon.

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.
