So I just finished my first week at a web development bootcamp and our first project dragged me into a rabbit hole I was hoping to avoid — float. We were tasked with creating a website without flex-box or grid. Was I under the illusion that I could become a web developer with minimal knowledge about float? Nope. Have I been actively avoiding this mysterious creature whist playing with my good friends grid and flex-box? Absolutely.

Now that I’ve successfully completed my project, I’d like to share one of the obstacles I faced and my answer to said obstacle.
