Hello, it looks like you actually didn't define the method, so the compiler is telling that it can't find it, I can see that you "System.out.println("Loading...")" but you don't have this inside a method like your isEmtpy() method.

Try something like.

public void load() {

This should define the method and allow you to call it.

Thanks hope this helps.
