three years ago! But wasn't it really annoying for a moment when you thought I was bragging about getting one now? I don't understand the point of announcing when something good happens to you. Like you need people to come and congratulate you, to make you feel good about it, even though something GOOD already happened. And people like to announce stuff like that with "whoa" or "wow" or "gee whillickers" like THEY are impressed at THEMSELVES but also at the same time pretending to be humble. "like omg guys 5000 watchers what??? I'm totally pretending I'm NOT a miserable self-centered scumbag who used watch-baiting and automated software to inflate my imaginary worth and I don't know what's gonna come outta my mouth even though I am a cold calculating creep typing and proofreading and not speaking live??!"
I haven't seen anybody do that recently and cannot recall who specifically I saw doing it who hadn't compulsorily unwatched my page first so I can post this without anybody thinking i am targeting them, right? Great.
No it was a long time ago, on something that isn't even very good or representative of any of my ideas.
The person who awarded it didn't even remember to add a comment saying why it was chosen. And to this day I don't know what I did that even made me eligible to have that BE chosen. And it happened two years after I made the thing! I sure haven't done it since then, but I know that one picture wasn't the pinnacle of my humanity either.
I was linked to a survey last week about deviantart changes and one of the things I could rank the importance of was "i think daily deviations don't get enough exposure." No I think daily deviations get all the exposure and tend to look like they were all drawn by the same people and the same kind of people. I got a comment on mine from somebody who was ANGRY that my drawing didn't look like I watch pixar movies and play overwatch or whatever it was then all day (also on his page: HE draws like that). For fleep's beep take some initiative. You have the FREE WILL to look at stuff that isn't recommended to you by someone who will never talk to you. In my experience, nobody outside deviantart even cares about it. I assure you it isn't a big deal that I am allowed to think I succeeded at something once every few years.
And *I* didn't have to say anything about it here, and things still went as fine as they would! I still got louts suddenly contacting me to do free artwork to bring glory to THEM. I still got loads of favor marks on that one picture and not any others, like people think: "I can like THIS picture by bimshwel because somebody told me to and then forget bimshwel until such time that somebody I obey tells me to like bimshwel again. Gosh I love following orders."
My older brother announced today that he is getting married. I can understand doing that; it is important for people to know if you are married. That is a legal status. Your daily deviation isn't going to get you a tax break or let you emigrate to a foreign country. Nor is it being your birthday, for that matter. My birthday's coming! hint hint hint! On my birth-day I like to eat tacos and strawberry pie. Nobody on the internet can give me that so I do not tell them when the day is. People are more connected and have more "friends" than ever on the internet but almost every one of them is depressed. Because all their friendships or deceptive rituals with the goal of accumulating imaginary numbers. Just like going to school or having a job except at 2-20 times the pace, so you feel proportionately more empty and depressed from all the fakery. I don't make friends being angry like this but I don't want to HAVE friends who require that I pretend to be happy and like stupid garbage that I hate. I have to go brush my teeth now. Good luck in your travels.
