“I don’t.”


let’s just live together

A lot of the millennial generation is of a young group that was raised by parents who taught us that we should want to get married. But so many of us don’t want to make the wrong mistake. Because if you don’t choose wisely, then you will find yourself marrying someone who makes your life hell. But we also don’t want to live a life alone either. It’s not like the 1950’s or the 1960’s when families had problems but were families. Today, you are taking too much of a risk to be married because so many people think in context of themselves. So it’s best to just stay single a lot of the times and go at life alone. Then again, what happens when children come into play? Do you really want to be a single parent?

doing it all aint always better

We love to brag about how we did it all by ourselves. We love to tell people how great we are at doing us. Reality is that it’s not always the best route to take in life. Sometimes, well, to be honest, a lot of times. See, I am a single male working on building my career by myself. And I am going to tell you something, it’s fucking hard. Now, that does not mean it is impossible for me to succeed. All I am saying is that we all have to get some sort of help in order to do well in life. It doesn’t mean anything less for you to want help.

dollars and cents

Marriage has always been a union where people are pooling finances to make this relationship work. So when you are trying to build a life for yourself, marriage is still the way many people build. Now, I am not saying your should get married to build with someone finances because then you run into a lot of problems personally. But, marriage still in today’s society is a gold standrd for how men and women build a life together. It’s like that old saying, two incomes are better than one.

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.
