Would you rather: have your absolute dream job but only make 20,000 a year or sit in a dark room alone for 8 hours a day making 1 million a year?

My dream isn't my job, it is retiring as early as I can and then travel. So the dark job is my dream job in a way

My dream job is to work at the Library of Congress, so I would have to live in the DC area. $20k would barely cover rent and utilities in this area, so it wouldn't even be possible.

What if my dream job IS sitting on a dark room for 8 hours a day for pay. I did exactly that for more than 30 years, for a lot less than a million dollars a year. And loved it!

I sat in the dark room for 20k a year, it wasn't a lot of fun. I would do it again for 1M a year & invest the income. Once I had a live able annuity I would spend the rest of my doing my dream job for free.

I am doing the dream job route right now. I make a little more than 20,000 but I wouldn't trade it.

I'd do the $1M job for a few years, get myself set up for a comfortable modest life and then 'retire' to my dream job.

Can I have my iPhone in that dark room? Because YES to that, if so.

No. You can't have anything in there just yourself

Meh. I'd probably still do it for as long as I could.

Who's so say my absolute dream job isn't sitting in a dark room alone for eight hours? :)
