Hi Lawrence Babay

FOCUS(25 * 60)---> ; <----BREAK(5 * 60)

Just remove the semicolon [ ; ] between the Enum Constants and replace it with a comma [ , ].

Enum constants should be separated by commas i.e. [ EnumA, EnumB, EnumC, EnumD]

I don' t see an ending curly brace at the end of this line:

public enum AttemptKind { FOCUS(25 * 60); BREAK(5 * 60);

Hi Jeff,

It actually has one. I just don't understand why I'm getting an red squiggly line under BREAK.
