If you're happy, that's all that matters. 10 years ago, I would have jumped in excitement over $31K the way things had been going. It's a decent amount of money considering how hard it is to make it on ebay in my opinion. But a 40 hour per week job will probably pay more (in a career situation) which makes it harder as you get older, depending on your situation of course. If you don't have to pay for child care and such, that's worth thousands and thousands of dollars in itself.
