Reading Don t Worry, it Gets Worse is the equivalent of spending an evening out with your funniest friend. Nugent keeps you laughing from start to finish even her asides are gems. Rachel Dratch, Saturday Night Live alum and author of Girl Walks into a BarOvereducated, underemployed, and hungover is no way to go through life, but here we are. After graduating college with a drink in one hand and a degree in the other, Alida Nugent was ready for the supportive, predictable embrace of the real world. She didn t expect to be buried under a pile of student loan debt, laundry, and two-dollar bottles of wine, all of which pointed to the sinking realization that she had no idea what she was doing. In
Don t Worry, It Gets Worse, Nugent shares what it takes to make the awkward leap from wide-eyed undergrad to mature and responsible adult that definitely never eats peanut butter straight from the jar and considers it a meal. From trying to find an apartment on the black hole otherwise known as Craigslist to the imaginative financial finagling required to pay off student loans and still enjoy happy hour, Nugent documents the formative moments of being a twentysomething with a little bit of snark and a lot of heart. Perfect for fans of HBO's
