tales of a sober lad


Hallo! I’m James Victor Manalo. I am just a teenager who seeks to learn more about life, without minding the various restrictions given to me by different externalities. I’m in search of myself right now and I have gladly chosen blogging as a way to record whatever it is that I will explore as I move forward. I am currently taking up Bachelor of Science major in Applied Economics in one of the prestigious universities here in the Philippines.

I am into fashion, entertainment, and a little bit of sports (badminton, tennis, volleyball and basketball in particular). I’m insomniac. I voluntarily try to utilize every minute that I have by doing different things. I hate to be idle, and I find sleeping a little bit overrated. As much as possible, I try to eat whatever it is that I crave for, though my physique do not resemble my overeating habit, which is by the way a good thing. 

I plan on taking a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and not pursue a Master’s Degree in Economics. It’s a personal choice. I just want to learn more things aside from Economics. I also plan to study Computer Science or maybe something that is arts-related like theater.

So that would be all for now. I would try to update this once changes occur.

I’m now a cancer patient. I have Stage 2b Bone Cancer (Osteosarcoma) and I was just diagnosed last March 2009, though I started feeling the symptoms last December.
