Check it out!

And because I got a couple comments on my last video post about how my accent was different than people expected, I decided I'd jump on the "Accent Vlog" bandwagon and post a fun video showing off my accent.

If you wanted to follow along, here is the list of words/questions for The Accent Vlog: Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught
