Zac out and about  


Not posting the eating ones cause that is veering towards stalkerazzi since I can't tell if the photog went inside or not. And no, per a source and contrary to a rumor that is apparently floating around twitter, they aren't looking for a house for Dylan…

Actually Zac's life is very different from your average 24 year old's life. Most 24 year olds work 7 to 4 or 8 to 5 jobs five days out of the week: they can't go out every night and party because they can't sustain it long term (I've watched lots of people get fired for trying to burn the candle at both ends, including a few friends of mine.)

Some 24 year olda are finishing up their Masters Degree and some have enrolled for their Ph.D.

They go out on the weekends and maybe once during the weekdays.

Most 24 year olds pull in under 30,000 a year; they aren't playing with millions, haven't been in movies, and nobody screams their name on the street. Many 24 year olds these days are unemployed.

At least half of 24 year olds have a degree from college.

Zac has admitted his life is very different from other 24 year olds lives, and he's had to struggle with it, so let's not equate the stuggles of fame with the struggles of survival. Apples and oranges.

And no, I don't co-sign anyone's drug use or alcohol abuse. That may make me unpopular; a beotch; people may hate me but you guys haven't lived my life, seen what I've seen, know what I've been through and how I'm pretty much a success story out of hundreds and hundreds who ended up in jail, rehab, or in the case of my home group leader, eating a bullet after relapsing from a 10 year clean and sober stint.

And unless you're a recovering alcoholic or addict, you don't know. That's like me telling an Afro-American that I understand the struggles of being black in America. I'm NOT Afro-American; I can't know, even if I imagine it in my head.

I can't say whether Zac has a problem or not - only Zac can say that. All I can say is he's playing with dynamite, and as the old Indian proverb goes, "First the man takes the drink, then the drink takes the man." And there's no clearly drawn line when that happens - all I can say is by the time you realize it, you done crossed over it.
