IT’S ONLY TEMPORARY: DON’T LET FINANCIAL SETBACKS DETERMINE YOUR OUTCOME

“When you’re on your last leg.”


at wits end

Growing up for me, we were a poor household. But have you ever felt like throwing your hands up because you don’t have enough money. Or the fact that your finances are out of wack. You are ready to give up and give in, but something is keeping you from doing so. And why give up, why let life win. Because who ever said it would be easy was lying to you. I have looked at my bank account an wondered to myself, how the hell do I make it everyday. But I always seem to pull myself through pay my bills on time.

give up and go deeper

The more you hurt the more you sink into a dark place, the harder it is to get out of that place. So it sounds easy, but it’s beyond difficult. How do yo remove yourself from this funk. I wish I had the model for getting out of a dark place. Now notice I said dark place, which is associated with the mental. A lot of people are not deep as they think, but the mind starts working on you and next thing you know you are financially done. So watch how that mind can play tricks on you.

there’s always someone worse

We hate looking at another person’s life and thinking to ourselves, “At least I am not going through that in life.” It sucks to sometimes look at someone else to feel good about myself. I want to just feel a certain way and know that my feelings are special . Only problem is that they are not special. And it’s great to feel what others feel. I would never want to be the only person on Earth with money problems.

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.
