Wow. You’ve stumbled on Mortal Asphalt. Welcome!

My name’s Tahani. I’m a writer and a teacher (not always in that order). I enjoy… thinking. And sharing ideas. But not necessarily talking to strangers face-to-face. So I found a medium where I could share my opinion without people having to look at me. It seems to be working pretty well so far.

What’s my blog about? Short answer: There’s always ideas and whatnot scratching at my skull, and sometimes I get around to actually writing them down. When I do, I post them here. (If that’s not enough of an answer for you, I have a more detailed response here.)

Currently, my recent posts about how I was treated when I sought help with depression are making quite a stir. You can see those by clicking here.  If that doesn’t interest you, my two most-viewed posts are “Want to Rant about Muslims? Fine. Let’s Go.” and “Things my Father Taught Me.” Or you can check out my two of my favorite rambles, “Hopefully, I’ll Think I’m Stupid” and “On Marriage: Gay and Otherwise.” Otherwise, feel free to scan through the archive on your right.

Thanks for stopping by. I thrive on comments, so if you have an opinion (positive or negative) about something you read, tell me about it! I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Hi Tahani,
    My name is Anna Reid and I’m a reporter at the University of Montana journalism school. I recently came across your story about having issues with the mental health care system in Last Best News. I’m currently working on an investigative report on the state of mental health care in Montana, and I think your story shows a great failing within the system. Is there any way you’d be willing to contact me (my email is annagrareid@gmail.com) and possibly be interviewed? I’d love to have your voice included in the story, as I think what you have to say about your experience is incredibly valuable to this narrative. I apologize for contacting you in this way, but I couldn’t find a more direct channel. Please let me know!
