Ok, the first system's indent is way too big.
And you could move down the composer/arranger text quite a bit
The last 2 systems on pg 1 are a bit too close for comfort
Page number on pg2 is nearly colliding with the measure number
m28 lh - make those two eighth rests into a quarter
8vb in m15?
I hate to be that guy, but it's "NinSheetMusic.org/"

^Good stuff. Also remember that if you're pressed for space, your left margin is rather large atm and you could easily take space from there.


Also:
8vb in m15?

I disagree with putting an 8vb in that measure, or anywhere in this piece.

It's so I can fit only 2 measures there to preserve the hypermeter. Stretching out those 2 measures across the entire page would be dumb, so I can opt for just ignoring the hypermeter but I think it's rather important with this piece since everything fits so neatly into 4 measure question-answer phrases.

I'd probably need to make it 3 pages for this to work or I can do this...

...but that means getting rid of the hypermeter again.

You mean rh or another measure?

Everything else I'll fix later.

You could easily move one measure up a system and start it with two systems that contain three measure each. Its really not a big deal.  In the end, "preserving the hypermeter" created this issue :/

...but that means getting rid of the hypermeter again.

...no it doesn't?

Also you could adjust the space between the staves if needed. Some systems have much more space than is actually needed.

I just remember Bespinben telling me on one of my other sheets to make sure the systems match the hypermeter but if keeping things from bunching up is more important I don't have anything against changing it.

Also you could adjust the space between the staves if needed. Some systems have much more space than is actually needed.

This is the first time I've ever messed with the page layout tool so I just kinda clicked the "space measures evenly button." Is it acceptable to have different spacing between different systems on the same page?

Yep. I do it all the time, while keeping the bottom systems at the exact same height.

Looks good, just a few more things:

-subtitle needs to be centered
-arranger/composer info needs to be aligned.
-The low C in measure 5 LH should be an F above that
-I'd add a courtesy natural to the C in the LH in measure 12, since it's coming right from a C# and there's also a C# in the RH. It could cause confusion.
-The last two eighth notes in measure 32 (LH) aren't beamed together, unlike everywhere else.
-I would prefer to write the eighth notes in layer one of measure 24 (RH) as all beamed together, but what you have is fine too.
-I'm personally not a fan of making notes smaller for visual purposes only, so if there isn't a reason for the notes to be smaller in those places, I'd recommend that you resize them. In fact, in those spots those figures aren't that easy to play in addition to what else is going on, so I'd even consider making a note somewhere with an asterisk saying that these notes are optional or something.

Here's an MUS file with these changes to help speed things along.

If you're giving me a choice, I'd prefer it seperated.

I've always used small note heads to denote something as optional, also in this particular case it also stops the note heads from clashing. If that's an incorrect usage of it though I'll gladly change it because I really do want to make sure the reader knows that it's optional.

The thing is, notes being smaller doesn't mean that they're optional. That's why I recommended putting in a written note somewhere for the performer.
