When creating a varialbe you should first specify it's type:

private/public/protected <type> <name> = <value>;

In your case case the type is String. Since you're not that far into the project, public/private/protected is ignored for the time being. That means you code should look like this:

String favoriteColor = "blue"; //if you like blue
