Hi, everyone!

Shout out to John Walton for capturing this very enjoyable photo.

Ramble of the Day

A prompt, again from Twitter:

There are always a few answers to this question. In most of my writing, I don’t really have a choice in fonts and size — I’m mostly writing into CMSs, like WordPress, or on apps like Twitter and Slack, so I have little choice in the matter. I’ve gotten quite used to having no choice, so I suppose it isn’t a shock that I stick to Gmail’s default: all my emails are sans serif, normal size. (I had experimented with Garamond and Georgia in the past, but it never stuck.)

Where I truly have free reign is in my Google docs, though I use those less frequently now that I’m out of school. My preferences have changed over the years, but currently my go-to is Calibri, size 11.

tl;dr: What are your font preferences?
