Coming back after a few months. I get it, but can someone explain why we are using "void" in our "load" methods?

I can't quite get why we use void...

Thanks!

Hello! A method is void when it just performs a task without returning any kind of variable since our method performs a task without returning a value, we declare it void.

Thanks!
