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.
Subscribe and maybe I'll subscribe back :D

The World’s Most Beautiful Libraries
“Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future.” -Ray Bradbury
For centuries, books have housed the collective knowledge of the world and formed the foundations of educational institutions. Given that these objects that contain such value, it only makes sense that throughout history people have constructed beautiful buildings to house them.
We put together a list of some of the most beautiful libraries as captured by Instagrammers around the world. For more photos from these architectural wonders, check out their linked location pages below.
- Stuttgart City Library, Stuttgart, Germany
- Trinity College Library, Dublin, Ireland
- Library of Alexandria, Alexandria, Egypt
- Real Gabinete Português de Leitura, Rio de Janiero, Brazil
- The Royal Danish Library, Copenhagen, Denmark
- George Peabody Library, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD
- Kanazawa Umimirai Library, Kanazawa City, Japan

This recently discovered cave in Vietnam is massive beyond description. An entire forest is growing inside! There are no words to describe the enormity, and beauty of this natural wonder. The Empire State Building will fit inside!
The fact that places like this exist just blows me away. This world is so beautiful. Hang En Cave via National Geographic.
Situated north of the Cap Vert Peninsula in Senegal, northeast of Dakar, Lake Retba, or as the French refer to it Lac Rose, is pinker than any milkshake you’ve ever come face to straw with.
And once you see it, you too will agree that a sippy straw may be in order over a boat.
Experts say the lake gives off its pink hue due to cyanobacteria, a harmless halophilic bacteria found in the water.
If the color weren’t enough to make you smile, it should be known that Lake Retba has a high salt content, much like that of the Dead Sea, allowing people to float effortlessly in the massive pink water. In fact, Lake Retba has an almost one and a half times higher salt content than the Dead Sea.
UGH LET ME LIVE THERE
Arnensee Lake, Switzerland
The waters of Arnensee in Switzerland are so clear they cause boats such as the one in the picture to appear as they are hovering in the air.
The lake is located in Canton of Berne in Switzerland, and can be easily reached with a little planning. Although that first picture has made the lake relatively known, it’s still usually a quiet, tourist-free place.
