I don't think you should get extra aggressive near the bubble but what you should do is play your normal game. I don't what type of tourneys you are playing but if you are getting "bubbled" a lot there cannot be much wrong with your game - you are getting to that stage.
My two tips for bubble play are:-
1. dont go into your shell waiting for the bubble to burst
2. Watch the small stacks at your table and the large stacks - don't let either of them bully you.
GL to you in the future and hope to hear about your successes..................

You must ask you: if you only want to reach itm or did you want win the tourney. With ICM experience you can get alot of chips in the bubble phase. And its different to play a DoN or a normally SnG with other prize structures.
