I am scared of what's gonna happen after uni grad...

So, I'm graduating university in a year. I am excited, but worried and scared at the same time. I'm scared of what comes after uni. What do I do next? Like, what if I can't find a job? I really want to move out of the country, but damn I find that difficult. What if I don't get paid enough? What if I can't afford the lifestyle I've dreamed of? Not that I want a super expensive lifestyle though, haha...

After I graduate, I'm expected to be fully independent. But guess what? I don't know how to adult yet. I am a stupid 21 year old grown woman who doesn't know how to cook, how to manage money, how to live for shit. How do I survive on my own? I've always depended on my parents. This is partly their fault because they never let me have a job and always wanted me to focus on school. Thanks mom and dad!
But it's also my fault I'm this stupid because I've never bothered to learn to cook food. Well, frankly, I just know how to cook the basics, like rice and beans and eggs. Other than that, nothing. To be honest, I am scared of the kitchen and cooking oil. I don't dare learn how to cook fried food cause I feel like I'm going to dump the oil all over me and stupid stuff like that. I really need to face my kitchen fears and start making shit.
I need to push myself out of my comfort zone and learn adult stuff if I wanna get somewhere and be ready to live on my own when the time comes. But I really don't know where to start or what to learn. If only there was a handbook given to you after uni that tells you what to do and where to go next, and how to survive on your own....

The thing that REALLY scares me, though, is money. I have little knowledge about how insurances and healthcare and taxes work. I know that I have to pay rent, food, basic selfcare stuff, and the other stuff I mentioned earlier. But what if what I make isn't enough? I heard English teachers don't make much money and that drives me insane. Will I be able to be financially stable?? Will I be able to save up for travel, clothes, collection items, tiny luxuries, and the future????

I don't know if you are looking for information, but if you happen to be open to it I recommend checking out the how to adult YouTube channel. They go over a lot of important things in enough detail to get you started. Personally, I think some of the topics they cover could have gone a little deeper but if you just need an introduction to how to be a functional adult I would start here.
