No, you have misaligned first lines of items.

Gag! Don't do such nonsense! You introduce unbalanced \hspace and
inter-word spaces to give the following text the wrong position.
You also end a paragraph with \\ which you should never do.

Your mixture of the numeric tags with the list item tags looks like
a bad decision, but the attempted implementation really stinks.

Do you know what \reversemarginpar means?  I think you were trying
to use \marginpar{} without any silly \hspace.
