    21 Struggles Of Moving Back In With Your Parents After University

    Congrats you’ve graduated! Welcome back to casa mum and dad.

    1. You can’t just leave the house without saying where you’re going.

    Some girls are so desperate. Who calls 3 times, leaves a voicemail, & sends a text? Take the hint, mum #calledout #getthemessage #loveyoubut

    And texting your mum several times to prove you haven’t died on the way to Asda.

    2. Spending all day in bed in your pants watching Netflix no longer constitutes a valid use of time.

    3. You can’t just eat biscuits for every meal.

    4. And getting up at sunset isn’t a thing any more.

    5. You actually have to start paying rent to your parents.

    6. And do the washing up.

    7. You will never stop hearing this: “So have you got a job yet?”

    8. So sending out CVs becomes your actual life.

    9. The fridge is filled with delicious food that you’re not allowed to eat.

    10. Everyone will keep asking when you’re going to move out.

    11. You have to talk to your parents all the time.

    12. Your dating life is basically over.

    13. All your friends from uni are several hundred miles away.

    14. Rather than house parties and day drinking you end up spending your weekends doing parenty activities.

    15. You’ll get horribly obsessed with playing all your old games again.

    16. At some point you'll bump into one of your childhood enemies.

    17. And end up going to the awful local pub you used to try and sneak into without ID.

    18. You’ll probably get obsessed with whatever TV shows your parents like.

    19. If you do get a job it’s likely to involve a horrifying commute.

    20. Your parents house is way nicer than anything you'll ever be able to afford to live in.

    21. And you’ll actually miss them a lot when you move out.
