“It just fits.”


why we work

So many people in America attain their jobs just because of the title alone. And you reading this post could potentially be that person. So what are my thoughts on people who have careers just because it sounds like a good thing to pursue. For me, I don’t really have a view on the matter as it pertains to criticism. I just hope you have realized that the decision you just made is very long term. So don’t make a now decision for life because your life really is predicated on what you do for a living. And if you do have a career that hopefully you can make a change, you do so before you retire never doing anything I actually love.

making others proud

Everyone want to be able to look at their child and say my kid graduated from medical school. My kid is now successful attorney at a well-known law firm. But no parent walks around bragging on the fact that their child a sanitation worker or mailman. But why, they are making an honest living and taking care of their families. It’s because parents like the idea of how it is received by others in society. So the kid does what the parent want and pursue their career. Only problem is, they will resent what they do if not happy. Or, they become dissatisfied and turn their frustration on the people at their jobs. And then your child becomes the one that people despise.

money is the goal

You want to make all this money, but you have to realize that money is not the initial thing you are trying to attain. You should be trying to gain as much experience as possible that is en lieu of you making money. Because the money is not immediate, so most people give up while in it. Having the tenacity to stick it out is important. But if you don’t have the tenacity move on, stop trying to appease other people.

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.
