instead of:

  <a href="index.html">
    <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>

Try it without the a tag:

    <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>

You do not need an anchor element here, only on your ul.

Sorry Rogelio, can you re-formulate the question? I didn't understand your question.

What do you mean, "I had it right"? What is the error message when you use this markup?

One issue I can see is that your a element is wrapped around both the h1 and h2 elements. You should technically have the a element wrapped around the text, but inside either or both of the h1 and h2 elements.
