Besides the random mess ups, what else is wrong? what can i do to make it better? I feel like there's not much emotion being expressed through the violin.

Been playing for 2 years and 8 months. No tutor except my father who showed me the basics.

Thanks for posting and sharing your playing.
You're doing well for 2 years and 8 months. Don't be discouraged.

The main problem I see is in your bowing. Besides being too light, you are
also using the wrong part of the bow. For example, the first two notes
should be quite strong (as you are saying "Attention!!"). They should be
played near the frog, and not across the tip like you do. You are also playing
mostly the upper half of the bow. You can get stronger expression if you
play closer to the middle of the bow and towards the lower half of the bow, in
certain parts of the piece.

You also have some wrong notes. For example, the first C that you come to
should be played sharp (C#), but you play it at C. The same thing happens
when you come to the second C (should be played C#) which throws off your
D note.

I didn't check the rest. You may want to look at this video to see what I mean.
