You need to imagine that you are a bug. You can chose to be any kind of creepy crawly you like. You should tell us about yourself, and you should recount 'a day in the life of' your chosen insect.
Only insects allowed here! You should use the first person, so you are describing yourself as the insect. You don't need to be factual and can make up a story if you like.
You might need to do some research to find out more about your chosen creature.
I'm a mayfly, more commonly known in the UK as an up-winged fly (I think mayfly sounds a lot nicer). I am cousin to the more commonly known dragonfly and also live by the water. Our ancestry can be seen to go back the first flying insects, with our long tails and wings. We can be found all over the world except for a very few places. We are eaten not just by fish, but humans too. We are estimated to contain the most raw protein content of any edible insect by dry weight. In Malawi, they make 'kungu', a paste where we are mixed with mosquitoes to make into a cake for eating. We are also seen as a delicacy in many parts of China and Japan.
We have to be very careful of fishermen, as they like to use us as bait. In France, they used to press us into cakes to use as bird food and fishbait. We also get used to provide fisheries with an excellent diet for fish.
We even have been made famous by N i k e, when they produced a line of running shoes in 2003 called "Mayfly". These shoes were designed with a wing pattern like ours and were also said to have a finite lifetime. (I would have thought that this would be a very poor selling point, as we don't live very long). More appropriately Vodafone featured us in a branding campaign and told consumers to "make the most of now"!
When we're young, we are called nymphs (the lads are naiads) and we spend a few years in the water, gradually emerging to suddenly transform into adulthood. I am now an adult female and very delicate-looking, with two pairs of triangular wings that are extensively covered with fine veins. I have short, flexible antennae, large eyes, and a long, slender body.
If the fisherman doesn't get me first, I won't live long in any case. I am any way a favourite food for fish, so have to be very careful not to stay near the water. In particular, Rainbow trout are love us. I like especially to hover over the water around dawn or dusk, when the sun is not so fierce. And now I am an adult, I do not have time to feed as I am only interested in finding a mate as quickly as possible. I probably won't see tomorrow, as we normally have an incredibly short lifespan.
The guys usually congregate in swarms a few metres above the water to perform their suggestive courtship dances. Each insect has their own characteristic up-and-down pattern of movement and strong wingbeats propelling them upwards and forwards with their tail sloping down. We girls will then fly into these swarms, find our mate, and mate in the air.
I see a big cloud of male mayflies ahead. Here goes! Flying into the swarm, I see a very handsome male rising up to me. He grabs me around my thorax from below using with his front legs bent upwards. It is all over within just a few seconds, but he stays with me and we fly in tandem, eventually fluttering to the ground. After a while he bids me farewell and flies off to return the following day and repeat his dance.
As soon as I have laid my eggs, my job is done. I can relax. And I can now just fly off until I get tired and fall into the water.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayfly
