(Also, claiming Indians, Nigerians, Jamaicans, etc., speak "broken English", despite the fact that they're native speakers, is racist as fuck)
You don't need to speak English like a native
It's okay to have "weird" pacing when speaking. It's also okay to make sentences with correct meaning but uncommon phrasing
Don't allow yourself to pause because you're struggling to find the most native-sounding way to phrase what you mean
Just express what you mean in the most comfortable way to you
There's no "broken" English. English isn't owned by Americans or the British. For better or worse, it's become an international language.
1960: slut is a hateful insult for women who like to wear short skirts and deny christ
1860: slut mostly just means messy, but it's sometimes used as a euphemism for an animal in heat
1760: slut means 'unkempt woman' but there isn't really any cruel or sexual intention behind it
1660: slut is like a feminine version of 'scamp'. mothers call their daughters 'adorable little sluts' like it's totally cool and normal. people from the future look back and are absolutely horrified 🤢

'moscow time' in liberal mythology is a liminal space, simultaneously outside the normal flow of time yet always immanent in the present, similar perhaps to derrida's always-already, identified as a source of threatening otherness which must be detected in order to combat its influence, yet paradoxically remains always unknown and shunned
I'm pretty cool I guess.
