Sparks of Aroengbinang's Mind

It's probably good to collect scattered mind sparks that I've written on Twitter and Facebook in a single post, more as a personal reference. The mind's sparks, while using word of "you" and the like, are often not meant for others but more towards myself.

But because words sometime choose their own targets, like every bullet that comes out of a factory that is said to have been written with name of its would be victim, they are those who feel exposed by the words and of course some are not. The thoughts came up with a variety of triggers, though sometimes it just happened out of nowhere.

Though it is titled Aroengbinang's Mind Sparks, it is not necessary to mention that not all the splats were original out from my mind so I do not want to claim it as the sole owner. Each letter is already available on keyboards, every word has been there long before, so even though we feel finding sequence of words but it does not always mean that we are the owner.
