Former Ohio governor Ted Strickland tried to live on minimum wage. It didn’t go well.

Former Democratic governor of Ohio Ted Strickland tried to live on minimum wage for a week and, in his own words, he “didn’t make it.”
In an op-ed for POLITICO, Strickland explains how he failed in his attempt to live for just seven days on $77, the amount the “Live the Wage” campaign estimates is left in a 40-hour minimum wage employee’s weekly pay of $290 after accounting for taxes and housing. Strickland, a Harvard fellow and well-off political operative, was clearly unprepared for just how quickly expenses added up. He had spent his $77 by Thursday after realizing his meager budget left him without the money necessary even to pay for public transportation.

ARE YOU WATCHING YOUR ANIMOOS LEGALLY?
This is a cheat sheet provided by r/anime that you can follow to make sure you’re watching anime legally and helping the industry as a whole
If a site’s not on the list, chances are it’s illegal as balls and I strongly recommend you try one of these websites D:
edit: I forgot to personally add official youtube accounts for companies like FUNimation and Nozomi Entertainment, who often upload the first few episodes (Or all of them, in some cases) to promote series that have been released. This also is legal, provided it comes from the distribution company that’s licensed it!

I don’t get much time to draw for myself these days, so instead of going to bed last night I stayed up and had wine and drew poses from Sia’s Chandelier video. The video’s dancer is amazing. I wish I could have captured her energy better. Also I need to draw hands and feet more, I’m pretty rusty.
