Perhaps I'm just bitter, but i've never had a job I liked. And I can't think of anything I'd like doing. So I picked the higher paid one.

Too many possibilities to answer, you got how long you have to do what you don't like. If I had to do 2 hours of maths a day and got payed loads, I'd be doing something I hate, but you bet I'd do it rather than play gutiar for 12 hours and win only a quarter.

Earning loadsa money means NOTHING if you arent having a good time. Some people are too money obsessed and forget to actually enjoy their life - witch in that i see no point. I'd love to earn not so much and enjoy myself, thats what its all about.

gee thats really likely.

anyways, id pick the one i like. i know it sounds cliche, but money doesnt garantee happiness. you get a lot more personal satisfaction doing something you like.

on one hand i may not like the job but i will receive more money and be able to buy more guitar stuff, but on the other hand the job i would like would have something to do with music... i have enough guitar equipment for now so i would choose the job that i like

well.. it depends just how much the high paying job pays and just how much less the job you like pays. if im going to make so much less that its hard to live comfortably, but i could make sextuple digits with a job i dont like as much, i dont think there is a quesiton.

if the salary difference isnt that drastic though and i could still live comfortably, then id take the lower paying job.

I'd definitley go with one that I would enjoy doing. Maybe not something that I would find extremely awesome and stuff, but something that would at leat keep me satisfied.

I couldn't imagine doing a job that I disliked.

In terms of part time jobs and such, I'd propably aim for the one that:
a) interested me the most
b) was easy to get to from my home

As long as it pays well enough to pay my bills, I'd rather have a job I like. A few years back I quit a factory job that was paying me quite well to go work at a bookstore for much less money.

It's fine to take a job that you enjoy doing in the meantime, but eventually you're going to have to suck it up and get a real job if you want to be able to have the luxuries in life and have a family.

It's definitely a question of degrees, how bad does that bad job suck, how poorly does the good job pay, etc. But in general unless you happen to marry rich you're probably going to end up doing shitty work for more money to ensure the happiness and futures of those important to you.

The one I like, provided I can live off it obviously. Never been that interested in money.

As long as it doesn't have me eating out of dumpsters, I'd go with the one I like . I mean, what's the point of trying to buy happyness if you are already happy, eh?
