it says your name_list's last item shouldn't be in your greeting variable. My code

The only thing I can think to do is ' '.join(greeting_list). Please help

full_name = 'Forrest Nunnelee'
name_list = full_name.split()
greeting_list = "Hi, I'm {}".format(full_name).split()
greeting = ' '.join(greeting_list)

Your problem is your use of the full_name variable in the format method. It only wants your first name so use name_list[0] Here is my code that passes:

full_name = "Charles Thomas"
name_list = full_name.split()
greeting_list = "Hi, I'm {}".format(name_list[0]).split()
greeting = " ".join(greeting_list)
