I've not crocheted for a couple years now but as I recall there does tend to be a curl to the fabric. Neater ends to rows and nicer edges comes with practice and guess what! You can add a border and hide it! I almost always added a border even if it was just sc to even things out and make it look better.
Happiness is catching that dropped stitch while it's still fixable..
