Jobs are stepping stones to living a better life.

    - 2k/month, company car and gas, 150$ per diem for airbnb and food. As someone that's nearly broke, a (finally) paid opportunity is nice. If I'm careful, It's a lot I can save up.

150/day? You realize how much that is? Each cheap at hole-in-the-wall places, stay cheap hell couch surf if you want to go full bore. 2K/month, don't touch that at all if possible and you have 8-9K depending on taxes at the end of this and can spend 4-6 months with the b/f and not worry about money. Having that much in savings is what freedome looks and feels like. Having 8-10K in the bank gives you so many options.

Take the job. You can always quit at the end of summer and have the experiences (professional and personal) that you can use later.
