"Most human beings spend their lives doing work they hate and work that the world does not need. It is of prime importance that you learn early what you want to do and whether or not the world needs this service. The return from your work must be the satisfaction that work brings you and the world's need of that work. Income is not money, it is satisfaction; it is creation; it is beauty."- W.E.B. Du Bois

Is it more important to do work that one finds fulfilling or work that pays well? Plan and write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and examples taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations.

Some may argue that the final should be waived because Students have worked hard all year.
On the other hand, although the students have worked hard, the finale exam's purpose is to prove and show the academic progress students have made. Therefore, to waive the final would be to get rid of the opportunity to show student growth and mastery of the content they have been working towards all year.
