Interested in Language
I'm not even sure if i speak American or British english. Actually, it might just be a weird accent. Your feedback would be extremely helpful. Thank you for your time. https://youtu.be/Kgoit4MfsYA

Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
You need to work on your vowel sounds and intonation. However, speaking naturally, rather than reading a fairly difficult text, would give a more accurate picture of how you speak.
I concur about checking your vowels. You pronounce your final Rs, so I guess you're studying American pronunciation.
When past forms end in -ed, the e is not pronounced and the d is pronounced like t. For example, "watched" is pronounced with the intimidating string of consonant sounds /tsht/. Don't be concerned if you can't manage all those sounds together, but do reduce the e to its shortest possible length.
The vowel sounds are more important for comprehensibility than how you pronounce -ed.
