The Only Pirate at the Party | Family Don't End with Blood: Cast and Fans on How Supernatural Has Changed Lives | ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY The Ultimate Guide to Supernatural | Trust Me, I'm Lying | The Guild | The Guild 2
When Felicia Day was a girl, all she wanted was to connect with other kids (desperately). Growing up in the Deep South, where she was âhome-schooled for hippie reasons,â she looked online to find her tribe. The Internet was in its infancy and she became an early adopter at every stage of its growthâfinding joy and unlikely friendships in the emerging digital world. Her relative isolation meant that she could pursue passions like gaming, calculus, and 1930âs detective novels without shame. Because she had no idea how âuncoolâ she really was.
But if it hadnât been for her strange backgroundâthe awkwardness continued when she started college at sixteen, with Mom driving her to campus every dayâshe might never have had the naÃ¯ve confidence to forge her own path. Like when she graduated as valedictorian with a math degree and then headed to Hollywood to pursue a career in acting despite having zero contacts. Or when she tired of being typecast as the crazy cat-lady secretary and decided to create her own web series before people in show business understood that online video could be more than just cats chasing laser pointers.
Feliciaâs rags-to-riches rise to Internet fame launched her career as one of the most influenÂtial creators in new media. Ever candid, she opens up about the rough patches along the way, recounting battles with writerâs block, a full-blown gaming addiction, severe anxiety, and depressionâand how she reinvented herself when overachieving became overwhelming.
Showcasing Feliciaâs âengaging and often hilarious voiceâ (USA TODAY), Youâre Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is proof that everyone should celebrate what makes them different and be brave enough to share it with the world, because anything is possible nowâeven for a digital misfit.
