I'm not sure what I am doing wrong...

Is Treehouse looking for a different format for checking the presense of an "a" at the begining of each?

breaks.py
def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for each in items:
        if each[0] == "a"
            continue
            print(each)

You need to not print it if each[0] is 'a'. Just continue, if it isn't 'a' then you print it, but remember it could be uppercase so you need to account for that, if you need more help I can give you my solution.
