  1. I saw this today on YouTube, it's from Sunday, I didn't even know that there's The Voice in my country (I don't watch TV very often)... :lmfao:

     

     

     

  2. Hi girls, I hope some of you can join me on this very "girly" topic. Tomorrow it's Valentine's day and even though I'm not a fan of this holiday it always make me think of the fact that I've never been in a real relationship. It's kind of sad because it seems so easy for other people in my surroundings but impossible for me. I'm usually not the girl who complains about being single, I'm actually used to it. However, the society makes it hard sometimes, people are always asking etc. I think it's still better to be alone than to be in some toxic relationship but sometimes it makes me feel uncomfortable - once I was with two classmates and they began to talk about their relationships. I felt kind of excluded and then once of them mentioned some problems and the other said "at least you have a boyfriend" which made me feel quite bad as I was the only one who was single. Does anybody of you feel sometimes the same?

      omg I can definitely relate! (even though I'm only in year 7, my friends "date")

      Thanks @Dominika :hug:

       

      I also feel that I'm too safe in my comfort zone and that I should try to step out of it because you always hear that it feels good to try something different but to be honest, it usually feels worse... I don't know what's wrong with me but whenever I try because you never know if you haven't tried I realize it doesn't work for me. Does it make sense at all? :biggrin2:

       

      It's not just about relationships but for example I went on a date with a guy because I thought I shouldn't reject every invitation just because it feels safe to stay in your comfort zone (and dating is a huge step out of it for me) but I realize I don't really enjoy it, I mean, going to dates. I know, it sounds ridiculous but sometimes I really think there has to be something wrong with me because everyone gets so excited about dates and to me it feels like a dentist appointment (ok, it's not that bad but still, I just can't relate to most people...). :lmfao:

      If you don't enjoy dates, don't go on them :naughty: .  Go for group activities, it's easier hanging out in a crowd, and you may get to meet someone you actually want to spend time with.  I joined a folk music club, just made myself useful helping with running the club, and ended up going out with a folk singer for a while.  Though that didn't last, two other men I met there are still my friends, we've stayed in touch for years.

  3. Hi girls! 😘

    I few days ago I've ordered Songbook from Amazon (I know I'm late as Mika...). I always thought I don't need it as there aren't any new songs (with a few exceptions, but I already own the majority of them). However, now I have it in my collection too and I have to reorganize my whole CD shelf because of the new CDs I've ordered... :naughty: This is also happening with my bookshelfs all the time.

     

    P.S. Feeling a bit better this week. :group_hug:

  4. Hi girls, how are you? 😘 Unfortunately I have to say I don't feel so well this month. There's actually no reason but since January I started to feel a little bit depressed, lonely and hopeless... It's sad but I don't want to speak about it with my family because they would worry too much. That's why I want to share it with you and ask you, if you ever feel the same and what do you do against it? I'd like to find some new friends or hobbies because my best friend is so busy with her job, school, hobbies, boyfriend etc. However, it's quite difficult, I don't know where to start. I'm trying to focus on studying now but it's also hard to do so. Sorry if my post doesn't make sense, I just had to share my thoughts with someone. Thank you for reading it.

      @Paoletta Hi, thanks for asking, it's like weather, but I'll try to go out more next week to be more active and I also decided to contact the counseling center of our university, maybe it'll help to talk with a therapist about the feelings because now I'm not even able to learn because of lack of concentration... And my mom began to worry anyway because I'm not hungry at all, I eat a little bit but it's really hard for me. However, I'm trying my best to change it, it helps me to do some exercises and also writing down the problems right now feels better. Thank you again for your support, MFC is the best!

  5. I just opened Spotify and saw this... I've listened to a lot of music this month, not just Mika, but it seems Spotify knows me better. :lmfao: (Golden is my playlist full of Mika songs that are on Spotify but aren't on any album I own.)

  6. I turned up the radio but as usual didn't really enjoy the music there so I was listening to Sinfonia Pop the whole evening... :wub2: When both CDs were over, I was going to turn off the CD player but before that I decided to switch to the radio first. And guess what song I've heard:

  7. Update on my project: It's not done yet, I want it a bit thicker, but it's going quite well so far... My original idea was to use the quote "I live for glitter not you" but then I thought it's a bit too long and complicated. :biggrin2: So I've chosen Love Today.

  8. Please wish me luck with my new creative project, I've never done this before. :lmfao: Today I've finally received my hot fix applicator which I've ordered weeks ago and bought a new grey jersey and some hot fix stones and crystals. I want to do some Mika-related design, probably some quote, I hope it will work... It's the perfect project for my exam time. :biggrin2:AirBrush_20190109181126.thumb.jpg.f5ead46711ab40cc25e06d062f6d8352.jpg

      @Anna Ko Kolkowska Of course I will create the design first without using the applicator to see how it looks like. :wink2:

  9. I've been following this YT channel for a while now and this video made me laugh, the guy paid people to make a song for his dog, it's really funny... :lmfao:

     

  10. I've found Songs for Sorrow on ebay.de "just" for 40 €, but the seller doesn't have any reviews and he/she is selling only this one item, so I'm not sure if it's trustful enough... But I thought it's an interesting price for the EP.

      I bought last year from one MFCer who was selling her collection but it cost more, there were autographs in it.

      With autographs it has more value.

      I saw one sealed on ebay recently for £25 but it had a reserve price and it wasn't met so it didn't sell.

  11. Maybe I'm just tired but today I listened to the song Girls and I got this idea... I know I'm crazy. :lmfao:

  13. I've bought this month a new phone (after 8 years so it was quite needed) and already changed the background several times but I think I will keep this at least for a while... :biggrin2:

  14. Today I accidentally found Mika on two playlists Spotify recommended to me – Cheesy Hits! and Guilty Pleasures... I'm not sure if I should feel happy about it. Mika is a proud pleasure! :biggrin2:

  15. I used to be a really big fan of her and I still like her, especially her older music, but the new song is so good... It's about her illness (she had Lyme disease in the past years) and it almost made me cry, it's so emotional.

      @Lilyen :lmfao: Skater Boy was my favourite song when I was like 11, we used to sing it with my best friend all the time. And a few days ago I heard My Happy Ending on the radio and realized I still know all the lyrics, such a great song.

      yes!! Nostalgy of my teenager-years.......:punk::glasses2::lmfao:

  16. I would even rather collect all editions of Mika's new album but pens are better than nothing... :lmfao:

    I finally got my boxes yesterday, they are even nicer live than on all the photos I've seen before. :wub:

  19. I'm in shock because of the bridge in Genova, me and my family used that bridge several times when we spent our summer in Liguria, our favourite region in Italy, the last time only a month ago... My mother always said the bridge is ugly and was afraid of passing it. I can't believe what happened... :shocked:

      I almost cried seeing the pictures, it really hits me hard... :emot-sad: It's always a tragedy but it affects you even more when you know the place where it happened.

  20. Do you remember all those articles from this year, where the journalists wrote Mika is 38? It seems that according to Google 29 is the new 38 because now if you google "Mika" or "Mika's birthday", you get the date and place of birth of a guy named Micael Borges who also use the nickname Mika... :lmfao:

      i just reported issue this to google yesterday. it's SO annoying! that other guy needs to stop using Mika's name :annoyed_h4h:

    4. giraffeandy

      giraffeandy

      @kreacher Yes, I agree, I mean, maybe it's his nickname in real life too, but he must know that there's already another famous singer using the name Mika, he could at least write himself as Mica or come up with something else, it's better to have an original brand name... I hope he doesn't want to take advantage of the name, some people can easily get confused because of it.

  21. Just a little story... Today I went to a concert which was a part of Prague Pride. At the very beginning before the first performance they started to play Grace Kelly. I know, it's the most basic Mika song, but I was so happy to hear it. However, after the first seconds I realized it's a cover! It was so weird to hear Grace Kelly without Mika's voice. It was so disappointing... :no:

      @Maria :) It's also really rare here to hear another song than GK or Relax. This was in a clothing store too. I walked by it and I had to stop and listen to the end of the song. :lmfao: And I also found Mika's Pilot Pens at the supermarket. It's nice to "see" and hear Mika while shopping... :wub2:

  22. Those little joys like watching a part of Mika's performance of Relax from last night and just after that spontaneously turning on the radio and hearing the first notes of Relax playing there... :wub: (I know it's not a big thing to hear Relax on the radio but in that moment it felt just magical. ❤️)

      Same in Spain. I only listen on the radio GK, Relax or LYL as it was a song for a spanish beer. Really sad. It seems he didnt evolve since GK. He always will be known as the GK or Relax guy. :winksmiley02:
