Regardless of if you have perfect pitch I would recommend buying a tuner so you can check yourself without needing to ask people on reddit haha. They’re pretty cheap, I would recommend this one

You'll need a warmer for it, because it's solid at room temperature! And be warned—it SMELLS. It's literally melted animal parts, and it smells like it.

ETA: We had this one at the shop where I was learning violin making, but it's pretty expensive to invest in on a whim. I've also read about people using crock pots; YMMV. You want to use a glue like this, not the weird shit that comes in a bottle pre-made. And seriously, it stinks. Don't do it in a room that you want to smell right ever again.

My teacher has 4 adult students between 25 and... 50 (I think?), and she says they are all really dedicated... and don't worry if you can't read sheet music yet, you will learn that "on the go" (although I admit me being able to read it might have additionally accelerated my progress).

Concerning the volume: As I work from home I usually practice at times when most neighbours aren't home, so that's an advantage. If you are on good terms with your neighbours, you could maybe speak to the ones living directly adjacent to your flat and "warn them" you'll pick up the violin - if the neighbours are nice, they'll probably be supportive as long as you are open and communicative with them. I don't know where you are located, but in Germany you actually have the right to play an instrument for several hours per day in an apartment (Although I think drums are limited to 90 minutes per day :-D). Otherwise, I can recommend a rubber mute which considerably takes down the volume. I use the Glaesel practice mute for weekends (Sundays), but it's not really the same as practicing without it.

Here you'll find a test with and without the practice mute.

That Hanon book of scales and exercises made me straight up quit taking lessons!

Mind you I was like 9 years old or something and I wish I kept at it as my left hand is now useless....

Then getting a good stand will feel absolutely amazing... the classic Manhasset or if you still want foldable/portable, this one is a joy to own.

This is very much like david thorne. Check out his website Yes that is his official website. I can highly recommend the book too: It’s freaking hilarious.

My parents have this, which I think is great. I tried using musipedia a while ago to find out what that one piece (probably from suzuki) which everyone plays as a kid was, without any results.

Have you considered a roll-up piano keyboard? I've been thinking about getting this one from Amazon for myself: Portable Flexible Electronic 88-Key piano -

There are note stickers for your fretboard though though (or just fret tape if you think that’s too much). Or you could get a tuner and look at it as you play and figure out which notes are where by looking at a diagram or something

There are a couple things that could be happening here.

First off, the bridge being slightly not straight is perfectly normal. It's supposed to sort of slightly lean towards the tailpiece. As far as pegs go, a couple things could be happening here. It could be you aren't pushing it in far enough, or it could be the pegs aren't perfectly fitted. They make a compound that may be able to solve your problem (and it's pretty cheap):

The other problem could be that the peg isn't well fitted. This will cost some money to fix, but it's on the cheaper side.

Did you buy the instrument from a luthier? If so, it should be their responsibility for good setup. Google says Sandner is a fine intermediate level violin, so it is unlikely (IMO) that it is a structural problem with the instrument.

It's not a chicken but you could get an otamatone which sounds similar
