I figured it out, on the stylesheet.css page i put
p {
color: purple;
}
before the H1 and H3 css code. Changed my color to purple instantly and let me finish the lesson

It wouldn't take any of the edits I did in the css sheet, even though I linked it correctly... I worked around it by doing the style edits in the index page. But there does seem to be something wrong with the exercise.

h3 {
color: blue;
font-family: Verdana;
}

p {
font-family: Garamond;
font-size: 16px;
{

Worked fine for me. Don't forget the semi colon's to end each line before the curly }

just calm down and think your answers through, no need to be rude.
