Embracing the Weird

You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost): A Memoir - Felicia Day


I stumbled upon this book when I was browsing audiobook memoirs in my library's e-collection.  I liked the title and was thinking Felicia Day looked/sounded familiar from the Joss Whedon universe.  That was enough for me to give You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) a try.  And I'm so glad I did, because this memoir was delightful.  Basically, it all boils down to embracing your weird and finding your tribe.  Pursue your interests, nurture your creativity, be brave and bold.  Love it!  Highly recommended.


Side note:  I hadn't seen any of Day's web shows before coming across this book, but I was inspired to seek out her show The Guild (about a group of gamers obsessed with a World of Warcraft-type video game).  My 13-year-old son and I binge-watched all six seasons via YouTube and Chromecast and bonded over all the geeky references.
