python is almost always a pleasure to use. I find that is helps drastically lower the barrier between my brain and the computer, letting ideas quickly become code without much friction. While this may not be great for maintainability long-term, it is great for "just doing" something which is often my goal. I like using type systems and compiled languages, but I think python is a better choice in most cases as it lets me focus on the problem at hand without much effort. I should use python more often, especially for pet projects.

Use the right tool for the job.
