my sense of scale is amazingly out of touch with my conscious mind.

I know the size of nearly everything on that board down to fractions of a millimeter, and I am still super surprised by how small all of this is; my intuition was off by at least a factor of two making this, despite me constantly measuring real objects and double checking every ruler around me

There was multiple points in the development where I realized I was wayyy off scale already (like when I wanted to use a 0.4mm BGA chip with 30 little pins on an area of 2.5x2.5mm - How did I ever think I could've managed that?!?). Every time I tried to reevaluate and correct and I evidently didn't manage :D
