Any advice on what I should do?

    Take the job!

    After 3 month you ask for a pay raise/img/vbsmilies/smilies/peace.gif

    Take the job.  Walk to work to save money if you have to.  Your seasonal job ends in September anyways, but building your experience now, while you're just out of school, is important.  Build your resume, but try not to burn any bridges with the seasonal gig... if you can help it.  You never know who might be hiring you later in your career...

    It's going to close in Sept. anyway and you gotta find something more permanent anyway.
