It was Thursday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on August 24, 2017). The US president was Donald John Trump (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Theresa May (Conservative). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Despacito by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee Featuring Justin Bieber. Lady Bird, directed by Greta Gerwig, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2017 while The Store by James Patterson, Richard DiLallo was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Good Game. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III.
