I only lived there for a year when I was in 5th grade, but I did visit it before that multiple times because some of my family is from Manhattan and the Bronx.

I, unfortunately, don't have an accent. I speak just like most other New Yorkers. ^^" My parents have a Mexican accent, though, because that's where they're from. My favorite accents are Australian, Scottish, and Irish, because to me, they sound very pleasant.

I'm not sure if I would even dare want to have a pure southern accent xD those can tend to be a little on the stereotypical side down here for what people do.. especially considering how diverse in culture most of Florida is

Up in northern Florida, though, people can have the typical southern accent more than those down in Central/Southern Florida

It's not very far from where I live, only like 3 hours, by car, so we just went there every year to see some stuff. I kinda got sick of visiting NYC because I already saw everything there is to see, pretty much.

Florida is special like that. The more north you go the more southern it becomes and vice versa.

Right now I'm less concerned on where I live (because it's close to where I could pursue my career) and more concerned on the fact that I might have very well have just placed myself on an impossible career path hng...

I'll trade you Cirny! You get California and I'll get NYC. Fair deal! :D

My dad's been to Louisville, Kentucky recently for business and he told me that city life there is beautiful and he admitted that he wants to move there. xD I'm a huge city girl as well and I would much rather have things to do nearby rather than having to drive 15 miles just to find something to do. :(

I've never been to North America, actually. Probably because the journey would be really long since I live in the UK... and I'm not good with airports and flying to start with

I had a dream about Australia just a few months ago, and it felt so real. I visited Melbourne and Sydney and I remember that the scenery in both cities were so vibrant. That's when I realized that I should take a vacation there someday.

But like...I need to plan this trip YEARS in advance because high plane ticket costs & stuff .__.

Australia would be nice to visit too, but I would rather focus on places much closer to home for now :p

Australia is a darn good country. Awful mosquitoes though. However it'd be cool seeing a bunch of you here. :D

North America sounds really cool actually but I'm nowhere near a fan of plane flights. Also how would you choose which states to visit? :(

I don't think I ever want to travel to America, sorry but all American accents are annoying to me. Unless they're in a movie in which case Australian accents are annoying. Definitely travelling to Britain and across Europe when I finish Uni however.

I don't see how American accents would annoy you, because in pop culture produced over here, most accents are actual accents and not "fake" accents, like how some stars would put on a "fake" Australian or a "fake" British accent. :/

I've been to NYC once before when I was about 12. It's a great place to be, but it sure is quite hectic and fast-paced there. Don't remember much though.

Australia, on the other hand, is just one of those countries everyone must visit! Beautiful scenery, great people, awesome lifestyle. Contrary to Sophie's statement about awful mosquitoes though, I've never gotten a single mosquito bite during my one year there last year. I returned back home and within the first hour gotten my first bite. ._.

I thought Florida was bad with mosquitoes! It's always raining here and it's never a good idea to be out at night without bug spray because of how many mosquitoes get attracted to moisture here >_<

I really wish I took more photographs during my NYC trip.. it was so super amazing that I just want to go back again to see it.

Nah, it's actually quite weird - an American accent in a film or a TV show, for some reason, often isn't anywhere near as apparently irritating as one in real life (although they can be. Kevin Bacon has invaded some of our adverts over here and... *shudder*) and trust me, they're generally seen as incredibly annoying haha. I guess when you're used to hearing the accents over here they just sound really wrong and awkward. Plus there are plenty of things associated with Americans which clash massively with English culture to make the accent automatically "noooooooo go away", haha.

Which accent is this in reference to? I feel the need to correct everyone who says there's a "British" accent because there isn't, haha. d: /shot

Go listen to nearly any Northern Irish accent then come back to me on that, haha. Also Liverpudlian while you're at it. d:

New York, iirc? Yeah I imagine it'd be proper touristy haha. Most of our cities are like that too (as well as the particularly scenic places) but I'd not exactly say tourists are... cute. Although the Europeans are usually nice!
