18 Reasons Why I Still Miss Zayn Malik

18 Reasons Why I Still Miss Zayn Malik

How long can you live with 4/5 of your heart?


Even if I live to be 100 years old, I will never forget waking up from my mid-morning nap on Wednesday, March 25, 2015. It was a gorgeous day, the sun streaking in through the open windows of my freshman dorm room as I opened my eyes and sat up in bed, mentally preparing to drag myself out of bed and across campus to statistics. Little did I know that my world would soon come crashing down around me. I shut off my alarm, and it was then that I saw dozens upon dozens of texts. While I had slumbered so peacefully, a heartbreaking, earthshaking official statement had been released. Nothing would ever be the same again. Z-day was here.

It's been a year since Zayn left One Direction in favor of a solo career. In honor of the 18 tracks on his new solo album, "Mind of Mine," here are 18 reasons why I still miss him.

1. Four just isn't the same as five.

2. No one can hit that "You and I" high note like Zayn can.

Sorry, Liam. A for effort.

3. There have been no more selfies like this.

4. Or moments like this.

5. Or this.

6. Or this!

7. It's been a whole year without the Bradford Bad Boy.

8. No more promotional videos with moments like this.

9. No one has hair like this.

Except Louis kinda does, now, but it's not the same.

10. Or a smile like this.

11. Without Zayn, who else is going to lie to us?

12. And now it just hurts to watch this.

13. The Aladdin comparisons have stopped.

14. I still miss this.

15. And this.

16. And this, too.

17. And we can't forget about this.

18. And most importantly, without Zayn in One Direction, it's been far too long since we've heard those two magic words.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
