I Don't Know About You, But I'm Feeling 22: A Guide
Because really, how does one live like a normal 22-year-old anyway?

So Twitterverse exploded when Naughty Boy tweeted a link to the track he produced for Zayn Malik earlier today. This after he exchanged a couple of tweets with One Direction's Louis Tomlinson. It wasn't long before "Normal 22" started trending worldwide.

It was only 5 days ago when it was announced that Zayn was leaving 1D to be "a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight." And fans, after hearing Zayn's demo with Naught Boy, felt sad and betrayed and took to Twitter to air their feelings.

Here at the Candy HQ, we've decided to consult our favorite Taylor Swift on what it's like to be 22. Behold, "I Don't Know About You, I'm Feeling 22: A Guide." We're here for the LOLZ, so please don't get mad!

STEP 1: It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters
And make fun of our exes, uh uh, uh uh.

We're all for dressing like hipsters, but maybe not so much hatin' on the exes.

STEP 2: It feels like a perfect night for breakfast at midnight
To fall in love with strangers, uh uh, uh uh.

Breakfast any time of the day is a great idea! Falling in love with strangers, maybe not.

STEP 3: We're happy, free, confused, and lonely at the same time
It's miserable and magical.

We suppose Zayn is feeling all of these things rn. 

STEP 4: Tonight's the night when we forget about the deadlines
It's time

Huhu, so do we forget the 5 1Derful years because... it's time?

STEP 5: I don't know about you
But I'm feeling 22
Everything will be alright
If you keep me next to you
You don't know about me
But I'll bet you want to
Everything will be alright
If we just keep dancing like we're
22, ooh-ooh
22, ooh-ooh

Zayn really needs a ~dance break~ to release all the stress he's been feeling. Are you with us?

STEP 6: It seems like one of those nights,
This place is too crowded.
Too many cool kids, uh uh, uh uh (who's Taylor Swift anyway, ew?)

Sooo... leaving the stadium tour was a 22-year-old thing to do?

STEP 7: It seems like one of those nights,
We ditch the whole scene and end up dreaming
Instead of sleeping.

No more clubbing for you, Mr. Malik!

STEP 8: It feels like one of those nights,
You look like bad news,
I gotta have you,
I gotta have you.
