WAKE UP AND WORK: STAYING HOME AND WORKING

“In the comforts of your home.”


from home

Most people think that working from home is going to be this relaxed environment. When in reality you’re going to be working the same as you do at an actual work space. People don’t realize when you are at home it doesn’t mean relaxation. Yes, you don’t have a boss over your shoulder, but you do if you are working for an employer and at home. You still have to report to them as usual just through cell phone or email. Also, if you are working for yourself, you are more not at home being at home than at home. Meaning when you are working you are so caught up in the moments o your work you are not recognizing the environment until you take your breaks.

no one to talk to

When you look around your house and see no one, you may start to get that feeling of who do I talk to. Because a lot of people once they become adults take on friendships with the people we work with. But with you working at home, how do you meet people in life. You might have to go to meetups and come in contact with people in your career field. This way you can forge some type of bond with someone or people. And this not the only downside of working form home. There is the other side of from home and for yourself; finances. Money woes tend to sway your life a certain direction as well because you don’t have a stable place to go to everyday.

freedom

Imagine waking up and making your own hours each day. You can put in 5 hours or 15 hours in a day. That is the beauty, but most likely you’ll be working more hours. You will see yourself putting in 60 to 70 hours easy. But those hours you put in more could actually prove to be better than the time you spend working for someone else less. Especially if you doing something you love; time speeds by fast. I know this first hand when I am working on photography or filmmaking. That time flies because I am doing something I love to do.

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.
