Nav a elements off to the right

Hello, so I'm not really sure why I'm having this white space to the left of my links. It looks like they're getting pushed to the right, but I'm not really sure why. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Never mind figured it out, had to add a padding of 0 to #nav.js.
