I'm Chels. I blog about science, art, tennis, and my adventures in journalism. Officially, I'm a Science Writer at Brookhaven National Lab and I blog for them, too. Unofficially, I'm pretty awesome.

Or, you know, owsome.

GPOY Birthday Edition. This is what happy and 29 looks like. 
This is actually the first year that Toph and I haven’t been together for our birthday, which is a total bummer, but I can’t complain because we had the absolute best time of our lives in Italy two weeks ago. Still, it’s weird not to be with my twin on our birthday. 
Anyhow, I had a great day at my awesome job and then got drinks with Justin and Skyped with Topher and Charlie and Decan Bear (God, I miss that dogbear), and now I’m trying to think of a birthday when I’ve truly been happier and I can’t. Like, my heartbeat is just going, “Hap-py, Hap-py”, so I’ll just be glad for that and say good night. 
(PS: I look weird and orange because I live in this weird, orange hotel-room apartment. Next year, let’s hope I live somewhere less rust-colored.)
