Dear younger self: Modelling pro-tip

If you’re fitting exponential functions, take the logarithm of everything before starting. Linear fitting > Polynomial fitting » exponential fitting. It will save…months.

When I was a freshman in high school, on March 15 we were studying Julius Caesar in English class, and we spent our first period writing quotes on paper daggers. At an agreeed time, our entire class stormed the Latin classroom, yelling “THE IDES OF MARCH HAVE COME!” And taped daggers on everything and everyone.

Basically proving my theory that Shakespeare is only boring if it’s made boring.
