Where exactly did I go wrong ?

I am going to post 2 things. The index.html file that I have on sublime for the project with Nick and the CSS file for the same. For some reason mine doesn't look the same as his and I wanted to know where I messed up so that I may fix it.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Isaiah Thornton | Developer</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css"> <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Oswald|Slabo+27px|Open+Sans:700italic,800italic,400,700,800' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css"> </head> <body> <header> <a href="Isaiah Thornton site 1" id="logo"> <h1>Isaiah Thornton</h1> <h2>Designer</h2> </a> <nav> <ul> <li><a href="Index.html" class="selected">Portfolio</li> <li><a href="About.html">About</li> <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</li> </ul> </nav> </header> <div id="wrapper"> <section> <ul id="gallery"> <li> <a href="img/numbers-01.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""> <p>Experimentation with color and texture</p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-02.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""> <p>Playing with blending mones in photoshop</p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-06.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""> <p>trying to create an 80's style of glows</p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-09.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-09.jpg" alt=""> <p>drips created photoshop brushes</p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-12.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-12.jpg" alt=""> <p>creating shapes using repetition</p> </a> </li> </ul> </section> <footer> <a href="http://twitter.com/Zeekthefirst"><img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt="Twitter Logo"></a> <a href="http://Facebook.com/IsaiahThornton"><img src="img/facebook-wrap.png" alt="Facebook Logo"></a> <p>© 2015 Isaiah Thornton.</p> </footer> </div> </body> </html>

for some commenting you didn't comment it out /* */ if you dont' comment out correctly the script will break.

Are you saying that there aren't enough asterisks? I'm sorry if that's a dumb question but I really am a bit confused?
