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.

If I could get away with drawing nothing but Andrew + his floofy baby spirit owl, I would.
So, Tyto gets majorly jealous and upset when Andrew uses Longinus. “HOW DARE YOU USE A WEAPON THAT ISN’T ME I THOUGHT WHAT WE HAD WAS SPECIAL”

OH MY GOD SUCH CUTE BABIES

Taken from an unassuming life as a construction worker, Clarke Wilmarth enters a new world when he inadvertantly bears witness to an execution. Thinking it’s a matter of ordinary crime, he begins to pry deeper, until he realizes not everything is what it seems. Curiosity killed the cat, after all.

Hey guys! I’m in a little bit of a sticky situation right now with money, so I’m reopening commissions to try and make some extra cash. I am now offering chibi commissions!

If you’re interested, send me a note on deviantArt, or email me at insideunder@gmail.com!

I only accept PayPal, and I use a ‘pay before’ policy where I will need full payment before I begin working on the commission. Be sure to include references of the character you want, and any specifications for their pose! If not, you give me full privilege to draw them however I think is best.

I’ll be working in batches of 5, so first come, first served!

Thanks a lot for looking!

This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.

That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.

This is why we download. 

Spreading this shit like nutella because goddamn textbooks are so expensive. 

not necessarily art related but as someone who couldn’t afford their textbooks this semester this is a godsend

REBLOGGING because after a little digging, I found my $200 textbook for free in PDF form.

friendly reminder that this exists since I know we’re all going back to college soon

Will reblog every time I see it.

omfg i’ve been looking for this ahhh thank the heavens!
