Alas, these past three months have flown by and it is almost time to pack your bags and head back to college.

Saying goodbye to your family and friends back home is difficult, but reuniting with college friends again makes up for it. While there are both good and bad things about heading back to college and preparing for school, here are the ten biggest struggles of getting ready for another busy academic year.

1. Buying a parking pass

So, your new parking spot is two miles from your first class at 8 in the morning? No biggie. Better get a FitBit to count all those miles you'll be walking, though. No, this is definitely not something I can relate to from personal experience...

2. Picking up your textbooks

Wait, you mean the professor wanted the second version of this book?

3. Moving all of your stuff into your apartment that you just moved out of 3 months ago

Why did I move into an apartment complex without an elevator again...?

4. Accidentally running into someone you dislike while shopping for school supplies at Target

"Oh hi, Ashley... I thought you were transferring?"

5. Prepping yourself mentally for getting up at 6:30 a.m.

I really shouldn't have signed up for that 8 a.m. botany lab...

6. Having to deal with the awful college town traffic again

And having to see frat boys riding around campus in the back of pickups again because this is Missoura, ya'll!

7. Attempting to find a backpack that doesn't make you feel like the hunchback of Notre Dame by 3 p.m.

You either have a cute backpack or a comfortable backpack. There is no in between.

8. Trying to figure out where the heck your classes are

Wait... I didn't even know this building had a 4th floor...?

9. Balancing your work and school schedule

So if I have class till 4 and I work from 5-10, that gives me just enough time to eat and do homework before I get my 5 hours of sleep.

10. Coming to terms with the fact that you will no longer have time to binge watch shows and stay up till 4 a.m.

Why did I want to come to college again?

7 Things You Do If You’re One Of Those 'I Always Order Chicken Tenders' People

It's hard to love food but also hate it at the same time.

Growing up, my mom would usually have to cook me a separate dinner from my siblings. Why? Because I was ridiculously picky and wouldn't eat the same foods as everyone else. Trust me, it gets old. It's not my fault certain things just taste gross, you learn to live with it.

1. You eat something you hate just to see if you still hate it

I'll take a bite of a burger every once in a while just to reaffirm that it still tastes like dirt. I just have to know. Don't even get me started on vegetables.

2. When trying to explain what you actually like to eat, people give you major side eye

Don't ask me about my eating habits unless you want to get into a long, confusing conversation.

3. Eating at someone else’s house when you were younger was a pain

You hate to tell their parents just how much you hate the food that they gave you. So, you sucked it up and ate it anyway only to come home and whine to your parents.

4. There’s one thing on any menu you always fall back on...even if it’s on the kids menu

Pizza, maybe. Chicken tenders, always.

5. Trying a new food is a very proud moment

It's like, wow! Look at me being all adventurous.

6. When you realize you actually like some new food, that’s an even more amazing moment

Crazy times. This rarely happens.

7. Sometimes it’s the texture, sometimes it’s the flavor, all the time it’s left on your plate

Oops. At restaurants it's either left on your plate or your order is very specified.
