I have a full-time television editor position right now. 10 minutes from my apartment (that means a lot where I live), salaried, benefits, great perks (50% off any AMC movie ticket, discounts on theme parks, hotels, sports venues, cruises, universal, disney, you name it and I probably get a dope discount).

I have another job working as a summer camp director that I've done for six straight years. I get to work with awesome kids, play video games all day, and chat with celebrity parents. It's seasonal: 9 weeks in the summer, no benefits, no perks, although it has a higher monthly pay due to my years of experience. There is a possibility I could get hired full time in the fall. The staff that I would manage at this job have all started to apply for summer positions and are using whether I come back or not to decide what camp location they want to apply to work in.

My dilem? Should I quit my full time job to work for the summer job? I love working my full-time job, but the summer job is hands down the best job I've ever had. Period. I fucking live to go to work.

So basically my question boils down to stability versus immediate happiness.
