Eight years ago, LadyLincoln gave me my first Daily Deviation on my first account. At the time I didn't really know how to process that. I'd only been on DeviantArt for about eight months, and it seemed like one of those things that didn't happen to very many people. At the time I didn't really expect that I would ever get one, but then suddenly I had one, and I had no idea what to do.
Since then, I've received four other Daily Deviations, given out more than 200 of them myself, volunteered here for two years and worked here for three. I've learned a lot, made some very important friendships, and had life experiences that had I missed, I doubtlessly would not be where I am now. And now, on top of all of those other things I have to be grateful for...I also have the honor of saying that I was given the Deviousness Award.
Celebrating Deviousness - March 2016
In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
In a very spontaneous turn of events involving a fateful tupperware bowl, my mom unintentionally met with a medium at a Christmas party when I was eight years old, and that medium told her (among other things) that I was going to be a writer someday. My mom didn’t tell me about this whole happening until several years after I told her I wanted to write for a living, but still, how crazy is that, right?
My name is Trevor, and I’m a happy-go-lucky Californian currently employed as a content writer and marketing associate. I first branched out into creative writing when I was fifteen because I told an elaborate lie about how I wrote stories so I could i
There was a time before I first became a Community Volunteer where I think I used to imagine what it would be like to get Deviousness. I think I had this mental image of shocked excitement but also a bit of pride, feeling like "yeah, this is awesome and I really worked hard for it", or something. I don't really know, it's been more than 6 years since then. But now, in the midst of actually receiving it, all I can think to myself is "there are so many people who deserve this", and I just find myself tremendously humbled by the whole experience, because there are so many people who deserve this, and there are so many people in the community who have done so much to help others, just because they can, and so to be picked for this is...well, I don't know that I have words for it. I am a very small person in the grand scheme of the world, but I'm very moved. Being here has been a privilege and a journey that I haven't once regretted.
I promise I'm not normally this melodramatic. Just...in awe still. That's all.
There are a lot of people I would like to thank right now, but I know me, I will absolutely forget to thank someone I should be thanking. So, I won't risk that, and instead I'm going to give one blanket thank you. If you know I should be thanking you, I am thanking you. If you think I might be thanking you, I am thanking you. If you're like 99% sure that I'm not thanking you, well, that's too bad because I'm thanking you too.
