    Well there's not much point in having loads of cash if you've got no time to appreciate it. So the former.

    I would try and make the well paid job enjoyable. If I can't, I would keep it for a few years and switch to something I enjoy.

    Surely that defeats the purpose of the question?

    I would want a fun job that is high paying. I don't want to live off of a low paying job. Not that a 20,000 per year is that low paying.

    Nah, it's an interesting question, albeit on a smaller scale. Say 60k doing something you hate or 40k for something you love?

    Yeah I'd rather get 15k doing something I love than 40k doing something I hate. You spend too much of your life at work, so to have a job you really hate would be terrible.

    You can be happy on 15k anyhow, and even on 40k you can't afford to buy much of a house so I am aiming low. Salary isn't everything.

    Most of your adult life is spent at work, so you'd be better off with job satisfaction ( and a very rich other half!)

    I'd rather do something I love. I don't care about the money as long as I'm not poor...which explains why I want to be a French teacher lol! 18k starting salary isn't bad, although my debts will probably be almost that high after 5 years of uni (4 year degree, 1 year PGCE)...
