    I can hear a very, very slight me, it's just an "American" accent, that I hear when I cross the border an hour away haha
    And I thought all Americans called pop 'soda' (it's definitely POP here in Canada), so when you said that, I was like, ya! hahah

    I say all the same things! :)

    Except when I moved to Texas I started calling it "soda" because I got made fun of for saying "pop", but I was not about to call all pop "coke"!

    I don't hear an accent at all, but maybe that's just me!

    And you did just fine for your first vlog! I'm horribly awkward in front of a camera, so I feel your pain!

    You're so cute! I can definitely hear your midwest accent peeping out – and not so much in the words that you have to say for this meme, but just in your speech. As I said, cute!

    I just tweeted the other day that I'd do a vlog when I hit 100 followers I am currently at 98). But I'd do it after I had three beers because my Minnesota accent is super bad after I have had a few adult beverages. As a fellow upper-midwesterner, I also say, "Hey guys" or "You guys". And I say "tennies" for gym shoes. Haha. I was sure you'd say that too. But you didn't. Must be a small town Minnesota thing.

    I loved hearing you speak. You sound nothing like I'd imagined though. But I think you have a cute accent. You do have a slight accent to me, but probably cos I'm more used to the FL/Southern accents. Then again, I am also used to the British and Irish accents… lol. I might do a video like that too, but I know for a fact I do have an accent, being French and all…
