Don't Worry, It Gets Worse: One Twentysomething's (Mostly Failed) Attempts at Adulthood

by Alida Nugent

Alida Nugent graduated college with a degree in one hand and a drink in the other, eager to trade in parties and all-nighters for “the real world.” But post-grad wasn’t the glam life she imagined. Soon buried under a pile of bills, laundry, and three-dollar bottles of wine, it became clear really quickly that she had no idea what she was doing. But, really, what twenty-something does?

In Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse, Nugent shares her thoughts on what it takes to make the awkward leap from 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 creative maneuvering needed to pay off student loans and still enjoy happy hour, Nugent documents the formative moments of being a twenty-something with a little bit of snark and a whole lot of heart.

Perfect for fans of HBO's Girls and Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half, and based on her popular Tumblr blog The Frenemy, Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse is a love letter to boozin’, bitchin’ ladies everywhere.
