The combination of margaritas and guacamole may be the most infamous duo in the food world.

In fact, the relationship between the two could even be equated to that of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, potentially the most perfect and best-looking celebrity couple since Brangelina's recent split. And Dallas, being one of the nations most diverse hubs for just about everything, food included, has a plethora of options for avid Tex-Mex lovers such as myself. Below, I’m counting down the top three favorite spots for Dallas locals to get the most flavorful guac and strongest margs, just in time to celebrate dia de los muertos on November 1.

You're welcome.

3. Blue Goose Cantina – Lower Greenville

Located in the funky, upbeat area of Dallas, Lower Greenville, Blue Goose Cantina uses all natural and fresh, local ingredients in all of their dishes, their guacamole included. Served alongside their fajitas, quesadillas and pretty much everything else on the menu, it’s made with onions, lime juice and diced tomato, making it the perfect consistency – an impeccable compromise between smooth and chunky.

While their margarita selection may seem limited and simple, with only swirl, mango, strawberry and original to choose from, each one delivers powerful amounts of flavor and alcohol (and what could be better?), and all can be served either frozen or on the rocks.

Blue Goose provides customers with fun atmosphere, killer food and drinks, and reasonable prices, making it a top-notch spot to take your friends and family (well, maybe not your parents) on Tequila Tuesday.

2. Rusty Taco - Greenville Avenue

A quick and cheap place to grab a bite to eat and still get your drink on, Rusty Taco offers patrons a plethora of taco choices, perfect to pair with their homemade guacamole. Chunkier than your typical guac, Rusty Taco adds dashes of chopped cilantro and paprika to their recipe, and at only $3.25 for a side with chips, the price is unbeatable.

At $5 a piece, there margaritas "are made with cheap tequila" and come either frozen or on the rocks, with a rim of salt and a lime wedge, and while they're not the fanciest of them all, there's no competition for their cheap price tag.

1. Meso Maya - Uptown

While Meso Maya sports a slight more upscale atmosphere and menu than the previous Tex-Mex spots, their offerings are definitely worth the up-charge. At $9 for an appetizer, their guac, made fresh daily, consists of white onions, tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice and Oaxacan sea salt (it even sounds fancy, doesn't it?). With a smooth consistency and loads of flavor, it's perfect to spread on their house-made chips and dollop on one of their many tacos or enchiladas.

Meso Maya sets itself apart with its unique margaritas; the Avocado with fresh squeezed pineapple and lime juices, triple sec, casa noble crystal and fresh, muddled avocado (duh). Frequenters also love the Serrano Berry made with muddled strawberries, Serrano pepper, tequila blanco and fresh lime juice.

If you're not hungry yet, you really should go see a doctor and get your head examined. If you are, get geared up and ready for Tequila Tuesday and a night out at one of these Dallas favorites.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
