The best thing about getting things wrong is when you finally figure them out.
Apparently my golden rectangle was "all wrong," with weird proportions, or something? I know. Yeah. This is the most upsetting thing to ever happen to anyone.
BUT NOW I REDID IT, after much clenching of fists and panicky placement of guides, AND IT'S RIGHT. AND GOLDEN.
Getting it right after having it ohsobadlywrong makes me feel far more accomplished than getting it right in the first place. I mean, um, I totally meant to mess up the first time so I could learn this valuable life lesson.
