  1. Your voice is so cute, I can def. hear an accent.

    1. *Sigh* I wish I could hear it. I get made fun of a lot for how I say "house" and "go" a lot. I just don't get how my pronunciation is different from everyone else's! And thank you for the compliment, I needed to hear that. I feel like I sound like a squeaky mouse sometimes...


  2. hahaha your voice is adorable. There is an accent, for a sharpening of vowels that seems common in Wisconsin/Minnesota areas. Though I don't know if you're from there, and yours is reasonably downplayed compared to some people I've heard from that area. What do the Germans think of it? I'm curious. Swedes just hear you speaking English and get socially anxious, so I never get any sort of reaction other than that, lol.

    Anyway thanks for posting this! I think I'm going to do it despite my OUTRAGEOUS Southern accent :D

    1. Oh I'm definitely a Minnesota girl. Lived in Kentucky for ten years, then moved to MN in high school, and somehow I couldn't hold onto the KY accent. Not that I wanted to, though. Germans understand me perfectly well, actually, as far as I've noticed. Speaking Korean, though, I"ve had some problems with their vowel combinations and wasn't always understood. You should do it!

    2. I think the way you said "house" really gave the Minnesota away! haha. but living in KY would probably explain why yours isn't as overkill as most people from up there. I just wonder if the Germans know the difference between American accents; Swedes do, because most of their English exposure is American TV shows with the standard midwestern accent that I obviously don't have.

      I had no idea you speak Korean???!?!? How did I miss that????? Derp, now I feel stupid, lol.

      Oh and--when the sun shines and it rains, it's called 'the devil beating his wife.' at least to Southerners :P never heard it anywhere else!

  3. Oh, duh, happy Walpurgis Night!!! Are you doing anything for it?

    1. Me speaking Korean isn't a well known fact. I'm so messed up between English, Spanish, Korean and German that I honestly can't speak anything fluently anymore. It just kind of all runs together. Admittedly, I had to look up Walpurgis Night [Walpurgisnacht] since I had no idea what it was. I'll have to look and see if my village is doing anything! Sounds like a fun time :) Heading over to check out your video now :)

  4. Hahaha isn't it funny how EVERYBODY has an accent, but nobody can hear their own!? That scrambles my brain sometimes! :)
