“They can’t cope.”


generation Y/Z

There is a new generation that is used to being cuddled and told life is going to be great. Not used to being told they suck at something. And have known for everything to be very sensitive in our society. So what happens when this generation steps into a society that is completely opposite of what they are used to seeing and hearing? It’s going to be a culture shock to know there are not safe spaces nor is there an immediate gratification in the form of likes and followers. You have to work long and hard for things and it is a path where in the paradigm of living you see no results.

when did it start

I was born in the year 1987, so I am of age when the trophy handouts first started. We played and was destroyed in the season. But at the pizza banquet, we were all given a trophy for our part in the season. And in that moment I knew nothing of why we were given trophies. But now that I am an adult I will say that trophy meant nothing to me. But it was the beginning for what would be the issue with why everyone gets one. Because when we all get one it means nothing. The reason for a trophy is there is a winner and loser. If we all win, there is no need for competition.

attire

Dressing styles at work have changed over time. As a matter of fact my last post was about the CEO style changing. But for the most part, a suit and tie is the norm. A whole new arena when you have spent so much time in a t-shirt and jeans. And people had to accept you for who you are in that space. But in this new space no one has to accept you. No one cares who you are because you have done nothing to prove yourself. So until that time comes, keep your mouth shut and put on that suit.

clean and in good standing 

When you are looking at this young generations that are so used to casually using some type of drug, they are not familiar with the idea if random drug test. Because marijuana has become so popular, that still doesn’t make it alright use on the job. And companies fear giving drug screenings because you are going to see a major expulsion of jobs in America.

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.
