Thank you for your concern. My bad for not making myself clear :P
I studied IT before going into University for game development so I know I would hate being in IT even though they get paid much more. I have lots of fun developing games and am definitely not doing it for the money. It's just that I know I have to somehow have a source of income before I can pursue my other passion which makes EVEN lesser money, or even none at all.
I've also been thinking about working remotely or doing some online business stuff so I can travel and work at the same time. Or maybe I can develop a hit game :P
