Zayn Malik's abrupt leave from One Direction is hard on all of us, but hey — if this is what he thinks is best, we'll all do our best to support him.
The crooner DID say in his official statement he wanted to be able to relax, have privacy and do "normal" things 22-year-olds do.

Granted, since he's still an international star, some of those everyday guy things will be a little harder for him to do, but they're not entirely impossible!
It's safe to say life won't ever be the same for any Directioner, or Zayn, or his bandmates for that matter…
So, what are some things he, as a 22-year-old, can finally do now that he's not a part of the well known boy band??
