My husband thinks it’s hysterical and a little odd I’m sure but, aside from fashion, I kinda have an obsession with writing utensils and fonts. I have certain pens that I refuse to write with such as these Round Stic Ball BIC pens…AGHH! They make me break out in hives. Okay, I’m exaggerating, but they REALLY irritate me. Fortunately, in most cases I B.M.O.P. (Bring My Own Pen). However, on those rare occassions when I’ve changed purses and have left out my pen case (yes, I have a pen case like a 6th grader and it’s something similar to this) for instance at the bank where you’re forced to use either those industrial steel pens, which who in the world created those and why are they chain-linked to the counter, or when I’m at the store and I have to sign the sales receipted with the aforementioned wretched BIC pen, although in most cases I opt to pay by ATM simply so I don’t have to sign anything, I grab the stinkin pen, hold my breath and write as fast and messy as I can.
I like to think I have pretty nice handwritting and on most days I prefer handwriting over typing. Clearly that’s not the most efficient mode of communication these days so in order to quench my handwritting thirst, I have tons of notes and notebooks all over the place. The one advantage I guess I can say is that it helps me remember more things. They say that when you write things down it helps memory retention.
Like I said, handwriting everything isn’t the most efficient way to work these days so once again, so I had to find another way to express my pent up handwriting desires. I searched high and low (you think I’m kidding) for fonts that would do my style justice. I found tons of free font sites, but was finally satisfied when I found dafont, urbanfonts and fontsforpeas. Here are just a few of my favorites. I’ve listed their names below.
