You apparently learned electron flow theory which is the opposite of "Conventional" current. I fact you are right, electrons do flow from negative to positive. It also doesn't matter which side of the load you are on in a circuit. Both sides are carrying current. If it wasn't then there wouldn't be anything happening at all. Which direction you draw your arrows in the circuit diagram are arbitrary.
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!
I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
