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?

18 Types Of Mini-Golfers You Come Across On An 18-Hole Course

Which type of mini-golfer are YOU?

211
views

Mini-golf: A fun activity that has been around since 1916. We have all played mini-golf before and have probably played a variety of courses over the year. The one thing you might not always realize is the players around you. Next time you go mini-golfing take a look at those playing around you and see if you can find these 18 types of players. Even see which of these mini-golfers you fit!

The professional golfer.

This is the golfer who always has to look at the hole, line up his shot every time, and takes the rules seriously such as adding a stroke when the ball goes out of bounds. I mean it's mini-golf, you don't need to line up ALL your shots.

The driver.

This is the golfer who drives the ball as if he was on an actual golf course. It's one thing if you have a power swing, but this person typically drives the ball purposefully.

The obnoxious one.

This is the golfer who is just wild and all over the place. They make such a big deal out of every play, might make irrelevant comments, etc. It's just unnecessary.

The cheerleader.

This is the person who is constantly cheering others on. Even if it's a bad play they'll say "awe, it's o.k! You still got this!"

The family with the annoying kids.

This is the family where the parents don't know how to control their kids. This is where the kids will go to the next hole before their parents, destroy some of the property, or even interfere with other people golfing.

The family that tries to act like a family.

This is the family that you can clearly see is just acting like a family. It could be as simple as a family that seems tense and is just playing together to a family where the dad and kids are playing while the mom just walks around with them filing her nails.

The group of 8+.

This is the group that holds EVERYONE up. They don't care if there are 8+ balls on one hole at a time. If you are this group, please let people behind you go ahead.

The inseparable couple.

This is the couple that is all over each other. They're constantly kissing if they aren't playing or they are taking pictures of each other.

The teenage girls.

These are the girls acting all innocent and taking selfies while playing while their parents sit near the entrance for them. It's the only thing they can do without parent supervision.

The oldie.

This is literally a grandma or grandpa who is naturally just slow. They are so adorable, but it'll take a good 2 hours to play a full 18 holes with them because of how slow they move.

The smokers.

These are the people smoking cigs or cigars while playing. Let's just hope they aren't smoking around kids and put their butts in the little buckets at each hole.

The slow pokes.

These are the golfers that just take forever. If you are a slow poke please be considerate of those behind you and let them go ahead of you.

The competitive one.

This is the one who is constantly up in your face about how they're going to win. They are the ones who can't just enjoy a game of mini-golf.

The out of bounder.

This is the golfer who constantly hits the ball out of bounds. At that rate you don't even give them a penalty stroke because they'd be up to 10+ on one hole.

The goofball.

This is the person who just acts silly. They could be the ones using a child's size putter or balancing on different rocks or stumps on the course.

The clueless one.

This is the one who never realizes what hole their on, when it's their turn, or what they are even doing.

The scorekeeper.

This is the golfer who takes keeping score seriously. Or this could just be the person who naturally always keeps score when you go mini-golfing.

The normal couple (or group).

These are the people we all love. It's the people who like some friendly competition, but don't goof around. They move from hole to hole at a good pace and keep to themselves. They also are cognizant of those around them. These are the mini-golfers we all love and should strive to be.
