It is none of my business apparently all though I am schooled in both systems. But you are not being foolish and it is complicated, very. even with a Masters degree and accounting background it was/is hard for me. Perhaps because I find it utterly illogical.
Ok, you have to make visual assessment as far as I understand? Carry a tape measurer with you at all times and look at it, measure things, write it down, feel it. If you have to make cross over comparisons carry two, Metric and Imperial.
Hang them side by side on your fridge, saturate your senses with them.
We had to memorize, calculate and create hundreds of recipe's in our sleep. Not only recipe's but use, weight and seasons of thousands of types of produce.
I am trying to encourage you here. You can do it. Take baby steps, one millimeter at a time.
BTW I hate math, I failed all through school but still managed to ace when I had hands on experience. Math is not "normal".
This is like building a brick wall.

I'm Kaelci, and I've been popping in and out of The Shed for a while now, too shy to say hello, but Night Star convinced me to pop my head in and speak, and so here I am! *waves to all*

As I walked up to the Shed for the first time i realized it was painted a red shade. A shade so unique my brain twisted with bright shades of pink. Pink you say, yes pink, pink makes you think, red as it is said makes you eat. So are you telling me I am skinny and should have never painted the shed red. No I say today. I was telling you red makes you eat. How about yellow? Will it make me mellow! I am not so sure you are ready to handle a nice shade of yellow to make you mellow. Can I paint the hansome shed green? I suppose so. I would hate to see you mean. I like green. No no silly willie green is not your color. How about blue? Blue is the color of your shoe. Now my dear friend this must end. I will take you around the bend. Let's go inside the shed and tomorrow you can decide!
