There are twelve months in a year but there is one month that is better than the rest. Can you guess which one? If you said April, you're right! If you didn't say April, well. . . You're wrong. You are probably wondering why you're wrong; you are probably thinking to yourself "there is no way I am wrong! ___ is the best month, not April!" Well, let me explain to you.

  • Diamond is the birthstone
  • Daisies and sweet peas are the flowers of the month
  • April has 3 holidays
  • April has the best Zodiac signs
  • Jazz Appreciation Month
  • April is known by different names
  • Professional baseball starts in April
  • April has some of the best weather
  • Coachella Festival takes place in April
  • Author's birthday is in April
Check out below why these matter.

1. The birthstone is a diamond.

The diamond is one the hardest substances on Earth. Diamond comes from the Greek word adamas which means "untamable". It is said that diamonds are supposed to bring balance and clarity to anyone who owns one. It also symbolizes eternal love.

2. The flowers of the month are daisies and sweet peas.

The daisy symbolizes innocence and purity while the sweet pea signifies blissful pleasure.

3. There are 3 holidays in April.

There is April Fools Day, Easter, and Earth Day. That is a lot of holidays for one month! April is just extra appreciative!

4. April has the best Zodiac signs.

If you were born between April 1st - April 19th, you are an Aries. (Side note: The Aries Zodiac actually starts March 21st, but that is not important right now). The sign of an Aries is a Ram, which is considered to be a sun (fire) sign and ruled by the planet and Roman God of War: Mars.

5. April is Jazz Appreciation Month.

Jazz is such a beautiful genre of music! It is so calming and exciting at the same time. I am glad that something appreciates Jazz music.

6. April is known by different names.

Aprills means "to open", which the Romans thought was a good fit for April considering this is the month when the trees and flowers begin to bloom. April is also derived from the Latin word aperit which also means "to open". The Greeks named April Aphros, which is named after Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love.

7. Professional baseball starts in April.

Who doesn't love baseball?

8. April has some of the best weather.

April is during the season of Spring, which happens to be the best season. It is not too hot and it is not too cold. You can get a little bit of rain and a bit of sun on the same day and be able to appreciate the rainbows.

9. April has the Coachella Festival.

For those who don't know, the Coachella Festival, usually just known as "Coachella" is a music festival located in Coachella, California. This is about 30 minutes from Palm Springs, California. This music festival brings in people from all over the world. Granted, the festival has gotten a bit lame performer wise as the years go by, but nonetheless, still a cool music festival to go to.

10. April is the month of my birthday.

Now, this may make me a little bias, but aw well. I just so happened to be born in the greatest month ever so consider me lucky!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
