In Python, indentation is very important. It's how the language distinguishes what code goes with what other code. An else statement needs a matching if to go with, which means that they'll have to be indented the same amount for Python to know that they go together, like this:

if some_boolean:
    pass # This else goes with the above if

Hiya Peckeday! You have identation issues in your code. Your "else" should be indented with your "if" statement. Do that and your code will pass with flying colors. (:
