How do you love your job?

I work for the Army as a civilian and make great money. However, I hate my job as an electronics technician. Im 35 and dont wanna go back to school, besides i still have loans out. Its considered the best job in my area for my field. But the long hours at my work bench thinking i could be doing something better get to me. I went from $20K a year to $65K a year. Do i just grin and bear it, or do something i love and have nothing to show for? For instance i wanna be a studio drummer, but ill be poor until i make connections, and even then its a gamble. I also love to cook but every cooking job i had pays $9 an hour if im lucky. The point is i dont wanna waste my talents for the almighty dollar but it seems to be goin that way for me.. What to do!!!!
