Very cool and true expressions. It mostly goes like this: "I feel butterflies in my stomach" which is used when someone is nervous or scared of something!

Maybe for the second expression you meant BRICKS instead of BIRDS? That is an expression that means you are nervous. Don't use the second expression with just anyone--it's crude and possibly impolite..

Maybe this expression is a bit different depending on the English speaker and what country they come from, but in Canada we say “I have butterflies in my stomach.” I haven’t heard the second one but you might want to be careful where you use it because it sounds a little impolite. 二番目の表現は聞いたことがないけど、ちょっと失礼に聞こえるので友達や親しい人以外に対して使わないほうがいいと思います。😅 By the way, what is the holiday today?

I don't know where the "shitting birds" comes from - I've never heard that. こんにちは。今日は日本の祝日です。 私は、英語教室に通っています。そこで覚えた表現を復習しようと思います。最近、「緊張している」と言う表現を習いました。すごく面白い表現ですよね?これってスラングですか?もし私が緊張したら使ってみます。

I love that expression too. There are many interesting idioms in British English, some of my favourites are :- nothing to write home about, it means nothing exciting. For instance “oh there is nothing to write home about that restaurant “ Another one I use a lot is “a chip of your shoulder” , which refers to someone holding a grudge towards something.
