It was Wednesday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 7, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Blank Space by Taylor Swift. Dope, directed by Rick Famuyiwa, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Nightwatch. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Disney Magical World 2 or Warhammer 40,000: Dark Nexus Arena.
