While looking for jobs should I look for something that actually makes me happy or should I look for something with a high salary to financially support myself?

Compensation only goes so far to inspire you to work to the best of your capability.  You should to be in a role that you truly enjoy and are able to be passionate about what you do.  Remember, you will spend the majority of your waking hours at work so you would be much better off enjoying what you do.  Many people do fall for the higher salary thinking that will make them happy, but with less job satisfaction they generally do not succeed in those roles because they become dissatisfied do not give it the needed 110% effort.  Work is work, but you need to enjoy what you do to be the best you can be.
Best of Luck!

Look for both! Find out how to make money while happy doing it!
If you are only chasing the money and don't value the position or have a passion for what you do, it will be a long unfulfilling or trying career. I would suggest taking the time to evaluate what does make you happy and WHY. The WHY is a big piece to understanding the broader reach of roles that would also potentially make you happy and make you money! Employers want engaged and happy employees, as they produce more and bring morale up.
