Should i choose a job I will enjoy doing, or choose a job I will hate doing but will make alot more money?

Okay, so i want to be an interior designer and i luv art, but if i choose to be a pharmacist (boring job, not to mention I hate science), i'll make almost double the amount I would make as an interior designer. So, should i choose the interior designer job i'll enjoy doing, or the pharmacist job?

I love interior design too! I love art and love love love decorating rooms. But they salary is really low and it's hard to make good money as an interior designer...unless you own your business. I just don't have the time or money to "waste" on a degree that will not make me money. So I had to pick a different degree... More

A job is what you make of it. If you are already deciding to hate the job...you will be miserable. My advise is to take the job that you will make the most money and learn to love it. You can do freelance interior design on the side until you get to the point of making good money.

I chose a job I love (teaching). I do enjoy my job to the upmost degree, but I am constantly under much stress about how I am possibly going to pay for the basic necessities of life. I often wonder what my life would look like had I chosen a different field of study. I don't need material things, but I can barely... More

This is a good time to think about how you will feel getting up every day to go to your chosen job. Will you love it or hate it? Getting up every day to do something you hate is no good for your spirit. If you're innovative enough, your work in interior design could possibly become more lucrative than a pharmacist's... More

Have you considered working from home? I suggest you to try project payday, simply because you don't need any money up front and you can start making money within minutes. I average around 2,500 dollars every month with it. Check it out at: http://dwarfurl.com/509ca

How much do you need money? Is money important to you? If not go for the job you enjoy rather than being miserable.
