Can you please tell me if this sentence is correct?

I lay on the bed and let myself relax a little. It was my first day as a fugitive and so far, I haven’t done anything that might be considered a screw up.

It's the "haven't" part that I think might be wrong.

    Your problem is that the first sentence and the second sentence's introductory clause are past tense, then "so far" slips into present tense.

The ‘haven’t needs to changed to ‘hadn’t’. Then your sentence works. You are then, in the future from the moment being described - looking back on it.
