I love fonts. You can say I’m obsessed with collecting them all. It’s no secret to those who know me. You’re Just My Type is a new feature where I showcase the fonts I absolutely adore and use. And hopefully, you will love the fonts I pick. Add all of them to your font collection! Let it grow!
There isn’t a day that passes that I don’t use these fonts. I use them on a daily basis and I absolutely love it. I always find myself staring lovingly at these because why not? These are “oh my god, never not using these fonts because they don’t make my eyes bleed,” so you know these will be good. ;D
You don’t have to download any of these because these fonts are already in your computer. Isn’t that wonderful?

Oh, Comic Sans, if only I knew how to quit you.
This is a big old classic that holds a special place in my heart. When I was younger, Comic Sans was my go to font. If I printed anything, I changed the font to it. Fun Harry Potter facts? Comic Sans-ed it. Made up Harry Potter songs? Comic Sans-ed. Little scripts I wrote? Comic Sans-ed it. (This lovely phase was in the midst of my Harry Potter obsession.) Looking back to that golden period in my life, I would have to say I had flawless taste in fonts. I think we should use this font on everything we do — college essays, movie posters, tattoos, the like.

What do you need to showcase fonts or your handwriting back in the good-old days? Papyrus!
Let Papyrus swoop you up from the comforts of your seat. You should wrap your arms around its spotty neck and praise the good work it has done for all the fonts in the world. It needs to know it did good. That reeds are good. The old is good.

I’m going sooo crazyyyy because Curlz is so cute and curly!
I, unfortunately, was never in the phase where I’d use this on every piece of writing I did. What a sad childhood that must’ve been for me. Every child (and adult) should not be deprived of this fun font. (Amirite?) Now that I re-found this font, guess who will be using it on everything! ;D
Brace for Impact!
This font just demands your attention. It screams “I am here to annoy you” and that’s great. Who doesn’t like a font like that? You gotta appreciate any fonts that can pull that off because if they can’t do that, then it’s not a great font in the first place.
Which font is your “absolute favorite”? Tell me about any stories or memories you have about any of these lovely fonts. I hope you’re curling yourself into a ball because you’re absolutely delighted by my font choices.
