THE HATE FOR THE GIG

“Down on your luck.”


THE GRIND SUCKS

So many Americans take issue with their jobs. Sure they’re able to earn a living but that’s all it is for them. There is no sense of belonging in their environment. The job where they work does not appreciate them. And there is also no room for growth. That’s enough to make a person feel not appreciated. It’s almost as if the quarantine is something that have saved people in a way as much as it has hurt some. But you have to survive you can’t not work. So you have to decide to make some sort of life change. Because you can’t wake up each and every morning hating your life. It’s no way to go through life hating Sunday night waiting to Friday.

STUCK AND CAN’T MOVE

Have you ever had this feeling like you couldn’t get out of bed. Imagine having that feeling at your workplace. You want to get up and swing away from your job like you swing out of bed. But swinging from bed is much harder. It’s all in your head, but what about this as well? It could be just as simple, but you have to grab confidence from somewhere to change. Because just having a different life without addressing your problems your existence will stay the same. So there has to be something consistent to hold on to that will make you want to fight and do better. I can speak for this in pursuing photography and indie filmmaking. It’s a lifetime of a pursuit to be great so there is a lot of time to work at my age.

NOWHERE TO GO BUT UP

If you are in a place where you feel like you can’t climb then remember something. There is nowhere to go in life but up. When you have the odds stacked against you there is no bottom for someone like you. There is no bottom below bottom. You can only improve past your point. So if you do 10% better than you’re doing now, then you are ahead of most people in your position. But watch your thoughts because they become actions. And you will find yourself back in bed not able to swing out.

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.
