US date format: 1/15/2015, UK date format: 15/1/2015

It was Thursday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 15, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Uptown Funk! by Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while The Maze Runner by James Dashner was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Nightwatch. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma or Cities XXL.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
