My name's Lawrence Atanacio. Born in the Philippines, raised in Hawaii (Kapolei) and Southern Cali (Harbor City). I like to find ways to better myself in any aspect on the daily. I believe in reasoning life with questions; not 'why', but 'why not?'. Blah blah blah, i'm your very typical kid. But if you wanna get to know me, ask me questions, anonymous or not and i'll most likely answer.

I made this tumblr to express myself, whether in the form of rants, quotes, music or videos. These are my thoughts and opinions and i won't get butt-hurt if you disagree. Just watch it, read it, listen to it, and like/reblog. Cause everything on this is something I think, I've experienced, or want to. check my tags; Lessons, quotes, and music.

Shaved my head for Locks of Love in mid-December! (by NowOrNeverAdventures)

I wanna grow it out again, but I don’t think I have the patience for it. I just paid for a hair-cut this past weekend, paying for haircuts alone makes me wanna grow it out again

15 inches of my hair. The most sincere gift I’ve ever given to anyone.

Earlier, I logged onto my computer and found that somebody had been on it. There were a couple tabs open and as I was closing them, the last one was the photo above.
Even though he works 20 hour days between 2 full time jobs to pay for the house, his siblings, and his upcoming wedding, he still generous enough to donate to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and also start up a team for The Lupus Foundation of America to participate in a walk held on June 23rd. 
My brother is definitely a role model and someone I hope to continue learning from. I’m proud and lucky to have him support me when my parents couldn’t.

i stopped working out a long time ago

cause i found no real purpose to it. I haven’t needed strength for anything I’ve done lately and I can’t care less about how I look to others.

But the last 3 times I tried to donate (2 times for platelets and 1 time for whole blood), my veins blew and weren’t as easy to find as before. So I guess I’ll be working out and eating healthy again.

It’s never too early to train for next years tough mudder, spartan race, and LA marathon, anyway. I’ll train until I’m ready for the end of the world, zombie apocalypse and/or the Hunger Games

Made a donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Also made a donation to my gut.

platelet donor

first time giving platelets was today. Last time i tried, my iron was low as hell, but today it was at 13.0

My platelet count was 319 (they were on my nuts to donate) and they said it’s high enough to give 2 units or something. They seemed a little too excited.

But I sat there eating haagen daaz ice cream, peanut butter cookies and orange juice, while they popped in the movie Troy for me to watch and placed me in a comfy ass chair with a blanket and heatpacks.

How could you NOT donate blood/platelets?

I’ve donated blood 22 times already. Each time i’ve had no problem getting the blood from my arm or even having blood well enough to donate.

But on wednesday, i went to give my first platelet donation ever. Then outta nowhere, I find out my iron was low as hell! Even the lady who took it wanted to recheck through a different finger and, again, it was still too low. (You need at least 12.5)

How the hell am i low in iron?! In the previous 24 hours prior to that, I ate 8 pieces of spicy tuna and 3 hand rolls of salmon and albacore, 3 tacos & 2 chicken soft taco’s that same night (taco tuesday whaddup), glasses of orange juice in the morning and 4 blueberry waffles, then the last meal prior was 1 hour being a carne asada bake AND a polish sausage.

i know i’m a chunky beast, but…you tell me that had no iron in it.

btw. DONATE BLOOD. you got extra blood, give it to someone who needs it.

i lost 19 pints of blood

i think i can lose a couple more.

You get a t-shirt and 2 tickets to either a Dodgers game or Angels game
