RISE AND SHINE: COMING TO WORK IN THE A.M.

Analog Alarm Clock Displaying 07:00

“Get up, stand up.”


early morning am

When you wake up in the morning, do you ever get that feeling of why am I getting up this morning. Because even though you might like your job, you still have this feeling that you can’t seem to get out of bed. But for the most part that feeling comes from people that are not that interested in their jobs. You want to get out of the bed, but you have this feeling like someone is pushing down on your body. How do you get up when this feeling is there? This feeling isn’t normal and probably means you need another job. But how do you get the other job? It’s not like you can just say I want one and get one that easy.

routine that is comfortable

When you get up in the morning, find something that interest you everyday, and focus on doing that one thing. This is something that will get you going when you start your day. Mine is going to Planet Fitness and getting in a nice exercise. This is for about and hour, then I head back home to get a shower and then out into the city. From there I go to the computer lab and work on my photography and screenwriting. The routine that I love the most will get me ready to take on the day. But let me give you a disclaimer, don’t get to into the routine. Because then you will eventually get too bored with the routine. So learn to switch it up every now and then.

it’s only 8 hours

Just think about it, when you work and have to put in so many hours, then you have to think about it relatively speaking. You have to connect it to something you like that takes that much time. Or you have to break down the time into sections. This sounds so irritating, but you can;t just go another 8 or another 6 for your part time gig. Trick yourself into thinking it’s not as difficult by liking certain things and focusing on your love for that. Time tends to pass when you are doing something you love.

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.
