I won't do a job unless I'm passionate about it. For a short while after college I did the corporate 9-5 BS because I was making tons of money. But that wears on your soul, it's not uplifting and not healthy (imo) to sit in a cubicle all day pushing papers for some company that doesn't give a sh*t about you. So I quit those jobs and now I only do jobs that are fun for me, even if they pay less. Quality of life is improved that way, and you don't need money to improve the quality of your life.

No, I hate what I currently do, and for now it pays my bills. What I want to do for a living is something I will be passionate about, though.

I LOVE my job, with a capital L.

In my opinion you can't be a hairsytlist without being passionate about hair.

I love the way hair can be manipulated into different styles with just a brush and a hairdryer. I love the look of a brand new glossy colour. I love the sound of the scissors snipping away. I love sitting on a bus and looking at people imagining what colour and style will suit them.
Most of all i love that feeling that i possibly have made someones day better by helping them make themselves feel and look good.

Sure the money sucks at the start, but my job when i am qualified can take me anywhere in the world.

No, I really don't like my job. I hope I won't have to go back to it after my maternity leave.

I wish I were passionate about what I do but I have a job to simply pay the bills at the moment.

I like my work, but i don't want to do it for the rest of my life, i want to do something else

I really like my work and I try to do a good job but I wouldn't say I'm passionate.

Yes, I am. I love being a photographer.

No, I've never held a position I cared about at all. It's just for money.

I'm getting ready to graduate with my elementary education degree and I'm very passionate about that. I'm going to get my master's in Library/ Media which I'm also very excited about!
