About Ruqaiyah Davids

Here’s something to know about me: I hate writing specific things about myself.

This page previously consisted of a long list of things I believe in, instead of telling you specific things about me, because I figured that by telling you what I believe, you would know me. But then I realised that this list is very long. Maybe too long. But I didn’t want to shorten it because I didn’t feel right about removing any of the things I attest to believe in. And so I narrowed it down. Well, not the list. It’s difficult to narrow that down. But who I am, what this blog is about.

I’m a high school teacher, doing what I’ve always wanted to do: teach. I teach English. I teach Shakespeare to students who couldn’t care much for the English language and seem to think that all the language is good for is to tell them stories about vampires, werewolves, and magic. That can be a tough crowd to compete with. Nonetheless, I love it. And I love acting like a crazy, lunatic English teacher, trying to get my students to love the English language and to use it to create beauty.

I have a crazy, raging passion inside me for words. I love words. I love speaking them, I love writing them, and I love reading them. I write about the usual stuff that pretty much everybody writes about: I write about what I know. My life, my thoughts, my experiences. Though, sometimes, it can be said that I write about what I think I know. Since you’ve landed on my blog, I welcome you to read my words. I hope you enjoy them, and I do hope you share some of your own with me (i.e. in the comments below).
