re: For me it's pretty much everything CSS. Learning all the ways to use float, position:absolute, to make stuff happen really stuck with me way too lo...

I was about to write something very similar, so I'll just leave it as an expanding comment.

I think that learning how to properly build an entire layout with float had such complexity and sense of wizardry, that it became super hard to let go. I still find myself thinking about how to do it with float and clear elements, even when we have flex and grid at our service.

Old habits, that took a ton to grasp, die hard.
