BALANCE TIN, BALANCE. THERE IS A TIME FOR PLAY, THERE IS A TIME FOR STUDY. YOU MUST BALANCE BOTH.
“Tin” is my Indonesian name (short for “Tintin”). This is the ONLY bit of advice my Dad ever gave me. He would say it time and time again as I played so hard when I was in my teens. Now I’m an adult and I still haven’t found balance; I hit rock bottom for reals last year, and now I’m not just climbing out of the hole I was in; I’m fucking flying out like a phoenix rising.
