How to learn to cook in 3 months

Due to my mother's mental health, I was never taught to cook, and now I want to learn. However, the following complicates things...
- I am an absolute beginner. Meaning I don't know how to slice an onion or boil an egg.
- I work away from my parents' house (thanks goodness) on temporary contracts. I'm currently on a 3 month contract. So a) how do I establish a pantry from scratch that b) is small enough that it won't go to waste at the end? Bearing in mind I don't even know what's required to establish a normal, permanent pantry (we were not allowed to go shopping for food)
- I'm cooking for myself
What can you guys recommend in terms of establishing an appropriate, short-term pantry and beginner recipes for one person? Any good cookbooks out there? Thanks
