I haven't taken HTML formally as of yet (done a teensy bit on Codeacademy) so this may be why I have no idea what to do here lol, could someone show me how for now? Will go through it piece by piece later !

Meta tags always go in the head, and you would use this format to create a meta description tag.

It looks like you've already completed the first task, nice work!

The second task requires you to add a meta description. Remember your meta tags will be nested in your <head> element. Check out this link for some assistance in where to place the meta description and how to label it. Keep it up!
