Hi Seth Look 👋

The code you've written is great and should be working. The only issue is that you've currently copied the code from the index.js file over to the routes.js file. You'll want to delete those last 8 lines in the routes.js and then add the routes.about(request, response) line in the index.js file.

index.js
var http = require("http");
var routes = require("./routes.js");

http.createServer(function(request, response){
    routes.root(request, response);
    routes.contact(request, response);
    routes.about(request, response);
}).listen(3000);
