I have a friend who earns half of what I do, but he does 3d design for a living and that's what he loves. He's brilliant at it, and very cluey in general - he could be doing my job, I'm sure of it - but he's happy with his work and that's what matters to him.

I respect that, and slightly envy it too.
More is better up to a certain extent. Once you reach that extent, earning beyond that won't make you any happier.

When you reach income that allows you to eat every day, pay all of your bills on time, leave you room for some entertainment, and allows you to save money at the end of the month, that is the amount of income that will make you happy.

In NYC, someone making $50k, will probably be kinda miserable, or not the happiest they/comfortable as they can be, due to their living conditions. You'll have to share an apartment with someone else, unless you're living in section 8 housing. Either way, you'll be living in a poor neighborhood with drug dealers and drug users roaming around.

When I was at $50k here in Ohio, I was definitely not earning what I wanted, but I was on my way to do so, so that thought made me comfortable. Right now i'm definitely comfortable.

1 - Yeah probably true.
2 - Ah yeah I don't love my work. I take joy in what it is that I am building but the process of actually writing web applications is not super enjoyable to me. It's not what I wanted to do when I went to school and in all reality I am overtrained for this type of work. It seems stupid to complain when I get paid well but I would love to do something more math heavy, even if it paid a bit less.
