It was Friday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 16, 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 Die Again by Tess Gerritsen was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Nightwatch. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Battlefield Hardline or Bravely Second: End Layer.
