Re: Need life advice about job offer from fellow drummers.
I think you need to work out your long term goals first. If there is something you want to do that requires a large sum of money (eg travel) then maybe staying in the higher paying job is the way to go, and just nut it out for however long you need to. Otherwise if the drop in income isn't such a big deal then go for the job you'll enjoy. Either way you need to have a plan for what to do after it's time to move on to the next thing.
