Oh, Felicia Day, You Inspire Me

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

I know there's a slim chance she'd ever actually see this post, but I thought it would be worth it to aim my title directly at her regardless.


Because seriously, guys, I love her. I have always admired and respected her, ever since I first watched her in Dr. Horrible, and that respect and admiration has only grown as a result of reading this book. Equal parts funny and, at times, heart-breaking, I love seeing where one of my favorite people came from.


It gives me a small amount of hope at a time when I desperately need some.


Her upbringing was definitely weird, but her intelligence and determination shove through, even if she was simultaneously rather neurotic about it all. I've experienced that same "I CAN DO THE THING JUST TO DO THE THING" drive. That's actually part of the compulsion that drove me in graduate school while I worked on my currently worthless Master's degree.


Needless to say, I adored this book, just as I adore Felicia Day. And if she does ever actually see this review somewhere? Hi Felicia! You're one of a few celebrity-type people I'd genuinely like to sit down and have coffee with.


(Also, I wound up not even really reading at all on Sunday, so the 24in48 thing died pretty quickly, but I guess that's just me.)
