a thing that plagues me whenever i try to 'gram is that i struggle with extremely simple math, and i mean like, extremely simple
like i'll need to answer the question "how far is this number from this other number" and i end up in notepad for 30 minutes to an hour shuffling numbers around and trying to figure out what terms go where
and it ends up culminating in something like

if abs(room_x_offset) > 2:
if abs(room_x_offset) > 4:
if abs(room_x_target - room_x_offset) < 2:
every time i have to answer a question like this i have to rediscover it through experimentation, my brain just doesn't do a very good job of smashing numbers together. i mean i can get it, but it's hard
i feel like a lot of people are better than me at "seeing" numbers. like when i'm working in coordinate systems it's very hard for me to stack offsets without getting intractable off by one errors, because I can't figure out where the error enters
like if i'm trying to position a square underneath another square i know i need to start at the y of the top square, add a height offset, then apply that to the y of the bottom square, but i end up putting the offsets in the wrong place over and over and over
