Well, I finally tried a Northern US accent. :P Is it good, or did I exaggerate it too much?

Since I'm not from the Northern US I couldn't say but I had to comment on your new location. That's exciting--are you living in Tokyo now or are you on vacation?

By north do you northeast? It's hard to tell which type of northeastern dialect it is. They vary a lot, especially say boston and New york city.

I was trying a Minnesota accent.

No, not Northeastern. I mean the Northern (Midwestern) accent like in Minnesota.
