I don't know how I feel about this. There is nothing religious or too tree hugging about this aspect of my personality. I just feel really uncomfortable when I think about it.

I'm talking about killing bugs.

Don't get me wrong. I hate bugs. I think they're gross and creepy and if they weren't a significant part of our ecosystem and the earth's biodiversity I would be fine if they didn't exist. However, there is something unsettling about squishing a bug. I'm KILLING IT! I am ENDING IT'S LIFE. And sometimes I can't seem to shake that.

I mean, we can't be THAT arrogant to possibly think that it's okay to end a life just because they're gross. Right?

I don't know.
They are gross

I haven't spoken to you two in a looooong time!

I must admit, I kill mosquitoes all the time. They just like to eat me and it's either them or me. But I once rescued a beetle from the middle of the sidewalk and put him onto a tree. Smooshing him would've been a crime, both for the beetle and for the person's shoe. He wasn't a small bug and would have created a lot of mess.

Hahaha, I like that! BEETLE HERO.

YES, I did go to Chelsea! The friend I stayed with works at one of the galleries there and we went out there for a couple of openings. It was a lot of fun!

Hope everything is going well with you! :)
