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 quickly became clear that she had no idea what she was doing. But hey, what twentysomething does?
In Don't Worry, It Gets Worse, Nugent shares 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 twentysomething with a little bit of snark and a 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 note to boozin', bitchin' ladies everywhere.

Alida Nugent is funny, witty & clever. I enjoyed her narration and stories about her life... but a several chapters in I realized that at 27 years old I couldn't relate. I would have really loved this book five years ago. So while I didn't finish the book... It did make me feel better about my current state in life. :)

Interesting and funny memoir by 20 something girl
Perhaps, but it is unusual for me to listen to a book more than once.
