I interviewed at this place (I really didn't think I'd get the job) so I ended up getting hired. But I wanted to work at a different place (I haven't actually done an interview with this company. But I applied and they sent me a message saying that they think I'd be a good fit. And for me to fill out another application). With this company, I'd be working with children who have special needs has a Behavior Therapist. The other job I'll be working at a museum doing customer service. This place is only 16 minutes away. And the other job working with children is about 30 minutes away. I do have previous experience working with children I was a teacher's assistant. The job working with children pays $16 an hour and then $18 once I pass an exam. The one working at the museum pays $15.

Why another application? (seems weird, but maybe one for a different position?) Well like you said, you haven't got that other job, and these days especially, I wouldn't assume you'll get it (even though it sounds good). So I'd "bank" on what you do have, this current job. Now that doesn't mean you can't still pursue this other job if you like it better? But don't do anything until you are hired and you're an official employee. If you're wondering how you quit this current job, just give them as much notice as you can (again, don't do this until you have the other job officially), you'll probably still be on probation there (usually a probationary period), or you can just be honest (you don't have to "explain" in great detail either), thank them for the opportunity, you really appreciate it, but another opportunity came up about the same time and you've decided it's a better fit for you (something like that).
As far as which job, think about which you'd be happiest at long term. Write down on a piece of paper the pros and cons of both. A few you've listed already, but think about the work itself, the hours and days you'd have to work, etc. Both jobs will be challenging I'm sure, but you probably have a preference for one over the other? The pay and distance are things to consider, but there's isn't a huge difference in them (but one is less distance and more money right? That will make a difference, especially if gas prices continue to go up). But also really consider what you'll be happiest doing, because that will matter. More money may not be worth it if you're unhappy or hate the job?
One is a farther distance (almost 30 minutes away but it pays more money). The other one is closer but pays less money. The one that's closer I would be working at a museum doing customer service work. I wouldn't be there long-term as it isn't really a career. The other job working with children pays more and it's in the mental health field. If I pick the one working with children I would only work four days a week. Yes, gas does cost a lot that's one thing that I'm thinking about.
