    If you can't learn to do something well, learn to enjoy doing it poorly.

But the problem I jave is that Americans have not been able to recognize my accent. some refuse to believe that I am jamaican. that some tomes unclude Jamaicans though.
    until I prove that I know more wbout jamaica than them.
