these are a couple excerpts from a paper i wrote for my english class on the internet and identity. not my best writing, just more of an interesting story.


"This story centers around a young girl, barely 15. It started with a click on a link to join an online forum called GaiaOnline, followed by a swift post on the forum to introduce herself and harvest some company. Shortly after, a camera fell into the young girl’s hot little hands; greasy fingerprints stained the record button as she pressed it. A final click on the Upload Video button on YouTube sealed her beautifule. Permanently etched in the online realm were her face and story, and she was unable to turn back the hands of time. Three years ago her name was Catie Wayne, my childhood best friend. Now it is Boxxy, Queen of the internet. The video featured her introducing herself as “Boxxy” and talking about an online friend from Gaia, the web forum. With a quirky personality, adorable face, humorous expressions, and an apparent “je ne sais quoi,” she scaled up the great mountain of Internet fame. Starting from merely one of thousands on Gaia and YouTube, she has captured the attention and hearts of more than millions of people. However on the internet, no one can have a great number of fans unless there is a great or equal amount of haters. I have been best friends with Catie for 12 years and have witnessed the fear and turmoil she has experienced. The content of the video is irrelevant; the effect was much more significant in shaping Catie into who she is today. Before the acceptance of fame, she endured a countless number of threats and harassment, which resulted in her hiding from the internet due to the development of shame and a skewing of her identity. The alteration of Catie’s online identity soon carried over into her real life, leaving her to hit the pause button on her online identity and question whether or not she was more Boxxy than Catie."

"Between Catie and the few people she was found to be connected to on the internet, it was a race against time to remove all of her personal information that had been mindlessly stained into the tangled webs of the internet. It was unbelievable the amount of information on Catie’s personal life has been plastered on display for anyone to take and smear around or threaten her with. Parts of Catie’s identity that were forever captured by the snares of the World Wide Web had been skewed by a few nameless faces."

"To me, “Boxxy” will always be Catie, my best friend since 1st grade. To everyone else, she will either be a topic of ridicule or love, based on the minute to two minutes they have witnessed of her. Some extremists will devote all of their time to her. Some will spend every waking moment trying to dismantle her and compromise all of her personal affairs online and off."

". She realizes that the person whom she portrayed was not really her, but accepts Boxxy as a slight entity of herself. “Boxxy is and always will be a character,” Catie states, “I’m only her when I consciously try to be. Although often time’s people identify me as her and ignore who I am.” Although the internet has altered Catie’s online identity, and affected how she treats her real life identity, all of the support for Boxxy had inspired Catie to continue making videos and introducing even more characters than just Boxxy. This experience has shaped “Boxxy” into a new and improved Catie. She has moved to a new city in response to this and now has multiple fan sites and 600,000 hits when “Boxxy.” is googled. She also plans to create a YouTube partnership and utilize this experience as a stepping stool to further her career and develop her identity even more."

Hope you enjoyed~

I wanted more details about the extent of the threats and the changes she had to make in her life, but it was still good.

Also technically, you should have added up the minutes of the Boxxy videos and the Bambi In Power Park video instead of summing them up as 'one to two minutes' we have seen of her. But maybe that was your point, that it may as well have only been two minutes.

I've got an online version of the thread up now:

I mean, wow. I don't even know what it's like to be so adored and hated at the same time and I wouldn't want to know. I imagine that it would be pretty scary, every time I come on here I try to visualize this through the eyes of Catie or her family and friends and it seems kinda scary sometimes. Sorry Catie...

Love is a strong word. I hate saying it. I hate when people throw it around. And I'm not in love with either of them.

All right, but please don't hate, if there is nothing to be hated of. It's a waste of time anyways.

For English class..that works then. Its pretty colloquial, but exciting. The story is really as intense as the writing. Definately an interesting perspective on the phenomenon; had your prof been a fan I'm sure they would have shit brix.

I can't help but think that the parts she excluded are the real meat of it. And if this were a bit more drawn out, it could be a great piece of journalism.
