It’s a warm summer day, sweat is dripping from your brow and you are craving a refreshing, healthy snack. The thought pops into your head “Guacamole.” However, you don’t know how to make it, and when you try, it ends up a green mush of vegetables. After watching many “How-to” videos, you finally give up on your Mexican dip-making skills. Until you come across this gem of step by step directions on how to make the world’s best guacamole in a flash. Say “adios” to your dull, flavorless salsa variation… and “hola” to the best summer snack!

To start it all off, you should make sure to have avocados, lemon juice, tomatoes, cilantro, salt, onions, jalapeños (if you like a little bit of a kick), garlic powder, and a bit of lime juice. These ingredients will coagulate to form a mixture of ripe vegetables and seasonings that will soothe your famished stomach, and leave you craving another fix.

Begin by peeling the avocados, and putting them in a bowl. Take the back of a spoon and mash the avocados until you get the desired texture: this may range from hard and lumpy, to smooth and silky.

Set this bowl aside, and with a large knife, dice tomatoes into small chunks and place them in the bowl. Once you have completed this step, take a moment to stir the tomato and avocado mixture; making sure it isn’t too soupy. If you find that your guacamole is too soggy, add more avocado slices to the bowl.

Next, mince the onions and cilantro into small enough pieces to where you will not have to chew them. Once they are chopped finely enough, dump them into the bowl and continue to mix everything together.

Lastly, sprinkle garlic powder and salt into the guacamole bowl. At this point, you should stir, then taste the mixture. From here on out, it is mostly based off of personal preference. If you feel like it still needs a bit of additional flavor, now would be the time to add a splash of lemon or lime juice. This will give your creation a tangy and flavorful taste, however, if you are someone who likes a little kick to their food, chop the jalapeño peppers and sprinkle them in as well.

The final (and most exciting) step in making your very own guacamole.. is eating it! Get a bag of Tostitos and dig into your delicious, homemade dip!

Chances are, you are salivating while you read this right now and you can’t wait to get home and make yourself some Guac. Now that you see just how easy it is to make this tasty treat, go ahead and give it a shot! The only regret you will have is not learning how to make it sooner.

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.
