“Give it a rest.”


work no play

A lot of Americans in this country work not just because they want to, but have to work. The there are the people who work not because they have to but love their careers. They work and work because they want that almighty dollar. But never taking days off defeats the purpose of working for the money. And we are also killing ourselves to make that dollar in the process. Our health is deteriorating before our very eyes because we want that dollar. So what is it, why do we do it in the name of finances?

more more more

Hey what is wrong with making more money. And if you make more than what you need, then spend on the wants you have always wanted. But when you find yourself working and not living, years go by and you never have a fulfilled life. Trust and believe it’s hard to not stop making an income for yourself especially when so many people around you are not working. Because that is something in the back of my mind all the time. And when you are living in a place like New York City, you never want to not have in life. Doesn’t even have to be a lot, just always covering your ass.

laid off 

What if I were to get laid off today. The average person if laid off today, they are homeless by the end of the month. So the majority of Americans actually live paycheck to paycheck. And that is what terrifies people so much that they work. I guess they figure it’s best to work and never have a life than to not work and not live at all.

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.
