DontWorryItGetsWorseACXDon’t Worry, It Gets Worse, written and read by Alida Nugent.

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.” Nugent documents, with a little snark, and a lot of heart to formative moments of being a twenty-something – from apartment searching on the black hole known as Craigslist to the creative budgeting allowing one to pay student debt and still enjoy happy hour. Based on her popular Tumblr blog, The Frenemy, Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse is a love note to boozin’, bitchin’ ladies everywhere.
