Hahahah "Horse Lips" that's pretty funny way to describe curly-braced dictionaries!

You should definitely practice using dictionaries-- they might seem confusing at first, but they are a very useful data representation and a way to bridge between JSON data formats so common with API results.

To access keys and values:

student = {'name': 'Craig', 'major': 'Computer Science', 'credits': 36}

for key, val in student.items():
    print(key)
    print(value)

To access just the keys:

student = {'name': 'Craig', 'major': 'Computer Science', 'credits': 36}

for key in student.keys():
    print(key)

To access just the values:

student = {'name': 'Craig', 'major': 'Computer Science', 'credits': 36}

for value in student.values():
    print(value)
