As the title says above: "Who Am I And Why Am I Blogging?" It's two great questions that I'm still looking to answer.
Let's start off with the question "Who Am I?":
My name is Ida Lyckemy (Aida Lucky Me), I'm a soon to be 20 year old Swede living in London, England for the moment. I moved to London in December 2020 on my own with two suitcases with no family nor friends in this country. Why you may ask? Yeah that's a really good question. I've always wanted to move to London once in my life, like many others. But as we all know, the freedom of movement ended at the beginning of 2021 and therefore I decided to move before 2020 was over.
I'm currently based in South West London living with two other flatmates in a small flat. I can't complain, I love my room, live close to work and I like the area a lot so I don't really mind.
So.. how come I'm blogging?
Like many others of course, blogging is a way to document your life and being able to write about whatever and whenever you want. I enjoy writing down my thoughts, what's happening in my daily life and share struggles and obstacles I meet on a daily basis. Even though I have an amazing family back home that I talk to everyday on FaceTime and friends here in London that literally lives 5 minutes away from me, it's always nice to have a safe space to write down everything that's happening and my thoughts.
When I moved to London I started posting TikToks about my journey and life here in London. One of my videos blew up and it got over 500.000 views, which is kinda cool and amazing when I think about it.
Even though I post a lot about my life here in London on TikTok it's hard sometimes to get all the details about the videos and the pictures that are shown. I hate my own voice when I hear myself speaking English and I try to avoid the robot speaking voices that's available on TikTok when making videos. Therefore I thought to myself, why not blog about it as well.
