I used to be into Century Gothic, but that doesn't look good on anything bigger than 10pt.
Gill Sans Light is a nice one, though my main reason for fondness is that it was used in 2001: A Space Odyssey
I use Futura a lot on essays now... Actually all those I've mentioned are pretty similar.
Lucida Console is one of my favourite fonts ever because it's Unicode, which means you can do things like that bunny and they look neater. It means every character takes up the same amount of space, periods and colons included.
Also because of the close association with coding and the command prompt. Just feels pro.
