Friday 8 June 2012

It was Friday, under the sign of Gemini. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of June people in US were listening to Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye. Inseparable, directed by Dayyan Eng, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Gravity Falls. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Ben 10: Omniverse or 2nd Super Robot Wars Original Generation.
