    DM was a treat last week, dj-ing like a mad man is something that Im starting to get used to. You just have to find a balance, plus you have to take it easy on the drinks and steer clear of drugs.

    I'm finding that sobriety (with the exception of pot and alcohol) has helped me keep my overall energy level up. I do occasionally feel the urge to drop a pill or 8 but I've been off mdma since new years and since then my productivity has sky rocketted. Going to the gym and maintaining a healthy (ish) diet doesn't hurt either, but being filipino and all, my diet can't be thaaaaaaat healthy

    I dont get that fucked up at all now when playing, I find just having a few drinks before hand and maybe a quick jay an hour before and Im fine.

    Some of the first times I played I was so high I couldnt barely even read the text on the laptop screen.

    I've definitely been that drunk. It stopped being fun.

    Now I have a drink or two (if that) and just try to hang out with my friends.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.
