April Fools' Day is the ultimate birthday for all jokesters alike. Whatever your story is behind how you ended up being born on this day, here are eight things we all understand about it.

1.  You started out your life with a fun fact.

From that moment until you die, you never have to worry about not knowing what to tell anyone if asked to share an interesting detail of your life.

2. People think you're joking when you tell them.

When you tell someone that your birthday is April Fool's Day, you are prepared for the "wait really?" Especially when you try to explain that to anyone on your actual birthday.

3. There's more of us than others might think.

I may have thought I was one of the only when I was younger, but now I have discovered that that is not true at all. Surprisingly, I've met quite a few people that share a birthday on April 1.

4. It's the perfect time for a birthday. 

April is far enough from just about every other major holiday, besides Easter, and depending on where you live you might be off for you spring break. When you're younger, no gift overlaps, and when you're older, no school!

5. People prank you, obviously.

I mean it is April Fool's Day. In addition, it's your birthday. People are going to prank you either because of the day or because it's your day, might want to bring an extra pair of clothes in case something goes wrong while you're out.

6. Sometimes it slips your mind that it's April Fool's Day.

Maybe I'm the only one at fault for this but sometimes I do forget that it's prank day. This makes me even more confused when people prank me on my birthday, to be fair however, I usually am only thinking about my birthday to begin with.

7. Will it snow or can you plan a pool party?

One of the faults with having a birthday that is the first day of April is the weather is still making up its mind. We just entered spring but aren't over winter, good luck planning any kind of party outside.

8. Sometimes you get an extra special birthday.

Easter! Just this past year I had my 18th birthday on April Fool's Day on Easter. It was a slew of celebrations.

All Jokes aside though, everyone have a safe April Fool's Day and happy birthday to all my fellow fools out there.

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.

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.

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.
