Accent Video Challenge

So I have been contemplating video posts for somethings on the blog for some time now. Back on the 4th, a fellow lady of wildland fire, and one of my favorite bloggers, Caitlin at To Make Love Stay, did a video blog post which included an accent challenge. Essentially, it was just a list of prompts for pronouncing different words and saying the name for different types of things that have multiple names.  I thought this was a fun way to try my hand at video blogging (vloging).

A few notes before diving in 1) Extremely stressful fire assignments cause my face to break out so ignore the teen-like acne all over my face (don't judge!). 2) The prompts ask for my favorite curse word this occurs around 4:41 to 4:45 if you want to skip hearing the answer. 3) I keep pushing back the publishing of this post and so it's already been nearly two weeks since this happened. Lastly, it's kinda dark, I apologize! So check out my response to the challenge below. Also head over to Caitlin's blog! Check out her Accent Challenge and all of her other awesomeness.
