“Going back to normal.”


The Coronavirus shutdown is expected to be uplifted in various cities and towns across the country. Some people have jobs to return to but there are many that don’t. And what will be the landscape of a nation that has been in virtual isolation for the past month? We have never gone through a time period quite like this before. And to be honest I don’t know how long it will take to readjust. How do we as a society come back from something like this? How do we get back to a job that is not there for many? While we sit in quarantine trying to anticipate our next move, we are about to walk into the unknown. A new world of adjustments.


In a country where you couldn’t shake hands how do you get back to normal? That means hugging your close associates. Or how about the idea of being intimate once again? How do people go back to dating each other? For a while it’s going to feel weird. Which means people being extra cautious and not wanting to walk to close to people. Which is going to feel odd living in a city where I do like New York. You’re constantly surrounded by people, so what are we to do. That means over time things will start to get better. It may take a year or more, but we’ll be back to normal.


Even though we care about our fellow man, we are going to have to have to worry about self after the reopen. And that is because everyone’s situation is so dire we don’t have the luxury of worrying of others. Trust and believe that we think about because then again we are humans but we have to focus on how we move forward as a person then a nation. So, what do we do now?

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.
