"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!

Last year, just before Halloween, my loving husband participated in a Zombie Run. For those unfamiliar, it was a 5KM event with a couple of obstacles and people dressed up like zombies, trying to steal your 'lives' (flags that were around your waist). At the time, I was undergoing some medical stuff and wasn't permitted to participate but it was the beginning of something .. crazy. In his words, the few obstacles weren't that big of a deal but it was a lot of fun and he wanted to do more.
He then signed up for Warrior Dash and Tough Mudder Given my circumstances at the time, it was assumed I wasn't going to be able to join him but life has a funny way of changing course on you and a couple of weeks before Warrior Dash, I signed up. Warrior Dash was fun but intense, a 5 KM course on a ski mountain and 13 nutty obstacles. The experience was incredible, I pushed my body to do things it really didn't want to do and I faced some of my fears head on, like confined spaces and heights, in order to cross the finish line and collect my medal.
Rob had been pushing me to change my 'spectator' ticket for Tough Mudder to a participant one, but I was reluctant. It's no joke, it's 20 KM and 20+ obstacles that are designed to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie. However, after Warrior Dash, I was addicted and so I signed up for Tough Mudder.
We're a few weeks away from one of the biggest challenges I've ever put my mind and body through and I'm excited For those that have never heard of these events, here's a fun video:
Rob and I have started a team "Bounty Hunters" and we're raising money for Wounded Warriors. Founded in 2006, Wounded Warriors Canada is a non-profit organization that helps Canadian Forces members – be they full time or reservists – who have been wounded or injured in their service to Canada. Through a wide range or programs and services, they help find solutions where gaps have left Canada's soldiers in need. Currently, their primary focus is on mental health and, particularly, the staggering impact of PTSD, perpetrated by Operational Stress Injuries. Overall, however, their mandate is to help any Veteran in need as they transition to civilian life. Visit their website to learn more

It is not often we bestow deviousness upon someone who is already a member of staff, but sometimes you need to bend those rules when there are exceptions to the rule like $Moonbeam13. She has been heading up the crew of Gallery Directors as head of Artist Relations for going on a year now, listening to suggestions from the community, enacting her own ideas, getting input from the volunteers, and bringing you massively cool contests. And that’s just some of the things she gets done in a single day. It is with great pride and a huge vote of “thanks” that we give deviousness to $Moonbeam13 on the verge of our 6th Anniversary!
