“What should I be doing?”


i have no clue

We all know the person in college who change their major three or four times. They keep at it in school because they have no clue what they want out of life. Then they do get out of school and still go from job to job not really knowing what they want. Just like changing their major they change careers. First they want to design clothes, then open up a restaurant, next thing you know they are working on being a nightclub promoter. Their lives are not really headed in any really direction. Just falling in this pit with not bottom. So what do you do if you are one of these types of people?

figure out early

I spent so much of my time trying to figure our in my 20’s what I was good at in life. Then I stumbled upon writing, filmmaking, and photography. This is when I realized what I truly wanted to do with my life. After that it became the work to be good at what I am doing. But the problem with so many people is that they are so focused on their fun and personal lives, they neglect their career goals. Then they start to say things like, “I think I might want to be this or that.” That’s fine when you’re 18 years old, but you start to move through your 20’s and entering 30’s, you feel more helpless and less accomplished. So you have to resist the want to go out and have fun to focus on your path in life.

never getting there in life

The hardest part of life is realizing you may never find your passion. You will live on this Earth and not quite measure up. And who want s to really do that in life. You live for the next 50 years and then realize it was all for nothing. That is why people hold on to religion so much. To know this is it can be very scary.

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 since 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my filmmaking.
