Undergraduate turned graduate problems?

Hi, I haven’t posted in a while but here it goes. Good news: I’ve graduated as a history and economics double major this past spring and am retiring this fall to begin my master’s. I’ve even made a couple of friends (kind of). And I’ve been attending therapy which I will be returning to in a couple of weeks.
Bad news: Shaky future lies ahead. What is expected to be my car (what I’ve been practicing for my license in) has a light that won’t turn off regardless of what anyone does and my driving test is next week. Which means I’ll probably have to buy a new one and I’m not sure how much money I will have left over. Which is sad because I’ve been trying to find a part time job and I’ve either been flat out rejected, firms aren’t hiring, and have applied to unresponsive companies, including on campus. This is going to affect how I have to pay for my (mandatory) summer courses too. I only found out they were exclusive to summer because of the plan of study I got at orientation yesterday, which means I have to take longer to graduate than expected and re-evaluate my schedule. All of this coming together scares me. I know I might sound entitled and whiny here but I just need somewhere to vent.

    I know that you are here to vent @wizman631 and you aren't really asking a question. First of all, congratulations on your graduation and acceptance into your master's program. Sorry to hear that you are having car trouble and that to fix it (possibly buying a newer car) will be dipping into your money resources. There are a lot of us who post here (I think) who weren't wealthy when we were your age and went through tough financial times to get through our educations and start our lives. It's not easy for sure. But, stay the course of moving forward. I remember when you were so worried about getting through a given course or semester, and here you are, a college graduate.

    You may want to find a forum about the make/model of the car and describe the problem there to see if it is something that someone else has encountered and fixed. Be sure to describe which light it is.

    I agree with above. If you Google your make and model and the problem, you will likely find something about it online. That has been my experience with a couple of odd car problems.
