Wednesday 26 August 2015

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Virgo (see planets position on August 26, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Cheerleader by OMI. The Martian, directed by Ridley Scott, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Love Island. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. or BlazBlue: Central Fiction.
