During May 2015, I earned $918.92 gross dividend income which is $130.45 increase from a year earlier. My expense in May was JPY 266,013 or $2,145.27 if I use $1=JPY 124 exchange rate. My gross dividend income can cover 43% of my monthly expenses. I think that May was better than I had expected in terms of dividend income. From June onwards, my monthly dividend will lose about $100 gross dividend income because I sold my entire position of PSEC which had paid me $100 per month.
