It's a good start! Congrats for making a working layout your first time!
It could definitely be a bit tighter for sure - for example, column 2 doesn't need to be there at all since there is nothing in it.
We also generally like to avoid standing resistors. A 1/4W resistor spans 4 holes at its smallest, so you want to try to keep all your resistors spanning at least that many rows.
You can avoid a cut by moving the input to row N (which is currently empty) and moving the 100K resistor accordingly.
Those two 10uF caps in columns 12 and 13 are a bit too close to each other - personally I like to space out electrolytics a bit wherever possible to make it easier to build and nicer looking.
Those are the things I catch looking at it briefly, I'd need to sit down with it to give you better advice, but hopefully that helps.
Keep up the good work!
