To be or not to be, that is the ANSWER

I have pretty much become a non-fan of those stupid semi-rhetorical questions that people ask you in order to test your character. Such as:
Do you think Christmas is more about receiving or giving?
Would you rather cheat to get an A or know nothing and get an F?
Would you rather have cool clothes and no friends or no clothes and cool friends?
Like SERIOUSLY, what is the point of asking those questions? You're just digging for the response you want to hear and frankly, normal people should just not subject themselves to that kind of manipulative deceit. I am a normal person, and therefore, I do not tolerate those questions. Because they're dumb. And I don't like dumb things.

The reason I'm talking about this is because it came up on an English assignment I got on Friday that I'm working on now.. and it went like so:
Which is more important to you: a job you enjoy doing or a job that makes lots of money? Why? (Like the WHY was even that necessary.)
So here is what I put:
. I’d like to say that I value I job I enjoy doing over a job that makes a lot of money, but I bet that’s what everyone else is putting, so I’m just going to elaborate a little bit. Can you really enjoy a job fully if you don’t think you’re getting paid what you deserve? And honestly, I enjoy money, so wouldn’t that factor in to how much I like my job? Really, I think I could end up liking any job, unless it’s like a Playboy model, but that’s more a question of morals and I’m not really going to get into that. I think it’s more a matter of mental and physical stress. Does my job always occupy my mind, even when it’s 3 a.m. and I’m trying to fall asleep and dream about Zac Efron or on the weekends when I’m out with my family? If so, then that is definitely not a job I would want, no matter how much it pays. This is why I don’t think I could ever be a doctor, but I do think I could work in a job environment that pays just as much but where I sit at a desk as a secretary working for some really annoying people. It might not be my dream, but it would be the perfect level of work and be compatible with my life. So in conclusion to this novel, my personal opinion is that if I’m smart enough, I can have both. And if not, that’s why I’m marrying a rich guy.
