Back to school, back to school, to prove to dad that I'm not a fool...

Moving back to school after a long summer off can definitely be challenging, especially for those moving back onto campus. You are used to living back home in a house with your family and now you're headed back to campus life. Some college kids love the on-campus experience, others hate it. Here's 10 struggles of moving back to campus:

1. Campus Food

The food may be convenient, but it is definitely not good or good for you.

2. Mom isn't here

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F29%2F636081045675289486-1091386098_a9f87232-0da5-4fca-823e-668503fbc91d.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=613&h=7cd30b0a8ccda58a3f09383e5c608dbed38c8feba84af313730aface3cee449d&size=980x&c=2620393133 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F29%252F636081045675289486-1091386098_a9f87232-0da5-4fca-823e-668503fbc91d.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D613%26h%3D7cd30b0a8ccda58a3f09383e5c608dbed38c8feba84af313730aface3cee449d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2620393133%22%7D" expand=1]

Who is supposed to buy your groceries, make your appointments, and do you laundry?

3. Homework

4. No pets

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F29%2F6360810468267831902096186399_SXfiXwH.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=514&h=2066da38c7827fcbaac0ad031752697807f30e0c2588b3c0443173abe311cf69&size=980x&c=1631130526 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F29%252F6360810468267831902096186399_SXfiXwH.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D514%26h%3D2066da38c7827fcbaac0ad031752697807f30e0c2588b3c0443173abe311cf69%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1631130526%22%7D" expand=1]

Dorms don't allow you to bring your furry friend along, no matter how bad you want to.

5. Mornings

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F29%2F636081047446811354364025593_giphy-4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=989&h=c3abf9f2536686646f072afa0c740316933f35503fbe21058f0d3b7c2632034d&size=980x&c=2364961172 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F29%252F636081047446811354364025593_giphy-4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D989%26h%3Dc3abf9f2536686646f072afa0c740316933f35503fbe21058f0d3b7c2632034d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2364961172%22%7D" expand=1]

Waking up for class does not sound appealing.

6. Learning how to write again

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F29%2F6360810489852150831269089124_giphy-5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=519&h=500a4a14332bc482b762c9c3f9083ad41e9857c0818f5a2cd7241c92bd9fd50a&size=980x&c=293160641 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F29%252F6360810489852150831269089124_giphy-5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D519%26h%3D500a4a14332bc482b762c9c3f9083ad41e9857c0818f5a2cd7241c92bd9fd50a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D293160641%22%7D" expand=1]You go the whole summer without taking notes and it feels as though you have forgotten how to write completely.

7. Living with another person

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F29%2F6360810518818963011311074405_giphy-6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=787&h=c4d66498c5c6e704d704c8298432f66eb1f31483d9c1f161bef6890ae9d7ddbe&size=980x&c=195300617 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F29%252F6360810518818963011311074405_giphy-6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D787%26h%3Dc4d66498c5c6e704d704c8298432f66eb1f31483d9c1f161bef6890ae9d7ddbe%26size%3D980x%26c%3D195300617%22%7D" expand=1]

Even if you really like your roommate, living in a tiny room with another person can be difficult.

8. Shower shoes

Do I really need to explain? Wearing shoes in the shower is so wrong.

9. Sleeping in a Twin XL

Your bed back home is most definitely softer and bigger.

10. You have to "adult"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F29%2F6360810544105707782068252325_giphy-8.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=739&h=0b9a886436cead60ac06db6fc3872ab4f9d8c7145fb6704dfcff9cc6d90613bb&size=980x&c=3976084380 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F29%252F6360810544105707782068252325_giphy-8.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D739%26h%3D0b9a886436cead60ac06db6fc3872ab4f9d8c7145fb6704dfcff9cc6d90613bb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3976084380%22%7D" expand=1]

You are on your own for everything once you move back to school.
