Yesterday and today I am coming to you with probably two of the longest, most overdue book reports of ever since I read both of the books I'm suggesting as good summer reads about 365 days ago. :)
The second book I read last summer was Don't Worry, It Gets Worse by Alida Nugent. It was a book I found at the end of summer -- on Labor Day actually -- while waiting for my sister to emerge from a dressing room in Urban Outfitters. The first few pages tugged on my just-resigned-from-my-job-as-a-teacher-about-to-go-back-to-school-for-graphic-design 20-something self spinning in a world of expectation and confusion (not to mention a crappy economy). Alida writes:
“A few years ago, I graduated college, diploma in one hand, margarita in the other, completely oblivious to the shit storm that was coming my way. Here’s a preview: becoming a living, breathing, job-having, bill-paying, responsible adult? Really fucking difficult.”
That is the tagline of my 20s.
