It was Wednesday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 1, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of July people in US were listening to See You Again by Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth. Extinction, directed by Miguel Ángel Vivas, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while In The Unlikely Event by Judy Blume was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Love Island. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cities XXL or Devilian.
