apart from the accent - i mispronounce things, make goofy mistakes, and stagger/hesitate. to make it worse - i am not as eloquent in russian as i used to be, either. that makes me feel pretty darn dumb at times. i think it may be akin to the embarrassment and frustration that stutterers feel.
i don’t have no youtubes and am too shy (ironically) for vlogs. my accent is quite clichéd, so imagine away without any qualms

edit: it’s delicious. light IPA with some unfiltered wheatiness to it + coriander & orange peel. these guys at Phillips never cease to amaze me.
it’s a work in progress. like anyone else - i have self-esteem issues. i am pretty terrible at taking compliments, cuz i rarely think i deserve them. i used to write off online compliments as a product of my crafty trickery, as if i manage to pull wool over people’s eyes with posing/lighting/angles/post-processing and pass something mediocre as beautiful. i am learning to love and accept myself as is more and more, but still have down days, often stare at my feet in the presence of people i find attractive, and awkwardly slouch / screw my face up when feeling uncomfortable in public.
