Remember that in Python, indentation isn't just for readability like in most languages. It identifies blocks of code such as the body of a loop or the content of a conditional.

Always be consistent with the depth of the indentation. You allowed to pick this yourself; but if you don't have a strong reason to use something else, the PEP 8 standard of 4 spaces per level is highly recommended.

Refer to the PEP 8 documentation for more suggestions and examples of proper indentation.
