I've often been told that I have the biggest accent ever. As you saw from my accent vlog, it's not THAT bad; it really only shows in certain words (like y'all & my/mine).
At work, we have people calling from ALL OVER the world, with many different languages and accents, so I often find myself wondering if people are judging me for my "hickish" accent.
Oh well, my accent makes me who I am...
even that is a Southern hick. haha
Furthermore, WHY do people still pronounce my name wrong when I answer the phone "______ Publishing, this is Alana."?? I will admit, I usually cut off the first "A" and say Lana, but that's not the point--these people STILL call me "Alaina" after I JUST said my name to them. Maybe they should follow my lead and just not say names if they don't know how to pronounce them/don't remember them (which is usually the case, let's be real here).
On another note, don't forget about our link-up on Tuesday!! I'm still working on my two truths and lie, trying to come up with some stuff that y'all will never guess.
