I'm having trouble with skipping the item if it starts with "a".
Any help would be appreciated!
for items in items:
if items == "a":

An "elif" would be used when you want to test another condition, and you would supply that other condition on the same line.
When you want to do something anytime the previous condition(s) did not pass, use just plain "else".

Also besides the "elif" issue mentioned, you're using "items" in "items", which needs to be fixed on the for, if and print lines.
