This is the most embarrassing thing I've ever done. Also, how many times did I say "um"?

Well, I re-recorded the audio and downloaded it again. It's apparently processing right now so it'll be done once it works and I'll edit it in. Just a heads up I've been running into this problem for anyone else.

EDIT: I just tried to find another site to host the audio file. I'm very insecure about my voice and I've been told I sound like a guy sometimes but... you don't get anywhere by not putting yourself out there. Hopefully it's not too quiet. https://www.mboxdrive.com/Untitled2.mp3

Alright. Since I gave Foxy her ultimatum and she upheld it, I've gone ahead and done one as well.

Okay... some of you will know just how out of character sharing this is, but life is very short, so here goes...

I wanted to do it yesterday, but I was pretty much unable to speak 😔

I thought I wouldn't make it through the whole thing today, but I did! Obviously I don't sound super great, but hopefully you can get a good idea of my accent :)
