Hey Don, it's Nae here ^^ I've got a question about bug bites? So recently our house got exterminated from bed bugs (which was a nightmare) and I just slept over my Aunt's house only to find out THEY'RE INFESTED TOO. We threw everything we had in the dryer but I am still paranoid and since I don't really react to the bites, what do bed bug bites look like? I can't look it up because pictures make my skin crawl and I feel queasy thinking about it ;; Please and thanks 😵

Being in New York, bed bugs are a common thing. You have to check every hotel room you go to because they are so common. Bed Bugs are very hard to get rid of, because they are so small and it takes a lot to kill them.

Bed bugs are tiny. So tiny. They are tiny and fast so if you are looking for them you likely won’t see them. What you will want to look for are blood specs on the mattress. Bed bugs are dark in color and they do jump.

Bed bugs can live in fabric and wood and lay eggs every day. 

You want to vacuum and wash every single fabric in your room. the sheets, the mattress, the carpet. You want to use bug killer on the wood. Don’t leave the wood out of it. Metal is safe, but you  have to treat those nightstands. 

Vacuum your carpet every single day. Wash all of your clothing in hot water and definitely dry them in a hot dryer. Bed bugs spread easily so you may have to continue treating many times before you get them all and the eggs too. Your aunt needs to treat her house as well.

There is a real imbalance, from the very creation of the stories and who’s telling them, how, and why. Change has to happen with the writers, the studio, the marketers, the directors. That’s got to be diversified because there is a hunger for the expansion of the role of people of color in the center of narratives.

this is honestly pretty terrible but it’s my first ever copic drawing, as I got a set of them for my birthday. I’ll get the hang of it eventually I hope

also sorry for the bad quality it’s sligtly better if you click on it

“In September of 1978, Shari and I drove Jeff to the Columbus campus of Ohio State University.  But despite Shari’s efforts, he still went reluctantly, and it was clear that he was going more or less on my orders.  He had never exhibited any interest in college or in any of the fields or professions he might pursue there.  He had no notion of what his major might be, except some area of business.  He packed his bag without excitement and with little thought.  Inside the bag, there were none of those articles that one might expect of a young adult.  Instead, he had packed a snake skin which he’d gotten at Boy Scout Camp, and two pictures of his dog.”
