    So since my last panic episode I've been monitoring but haven't found anything - still monitoring because I'm paranoid.

    Anyway, I'm fairly certain this isn't a bed bug since he was chilling in my window sill when I opened it this afternoon (it's finally nice enough to have open windows!):

    Sorry the picture it a bit blurry. I hit the zoom on my camera to try and get a decent pic. He was super small.

    You are correct, not a bed bug.

    Not sure of the size, but it seems small. Could be a springtail.
