Auntie SparkNotes: I'm Too Mature for My Age

By kat_rosenfieldFebruary 10, 2015
Dear Auntie Sparknotes, This is a letter about adolescent angst, so I'll try and keep it short. From about ever since I can remember, I have been mature beyond my years. That makes socializing horribly difficult, because, whenever I'm with people my age, they seem so vapid, ... More  →

Auntie SparkNotes: My Parents Caught Me Sexting

By kat_rosenfieldFebruary 9, 2015
Dear Auntie, I woke up on Tuesday morning to every teen's nightmare. I don't care who you are or what you've done, it is never pleasant to hear that your parents have been perusing your cell phone without your permission. Especially when your mom's a hacker ... More  →

By kat_rosenfieldFebruary 6, 2015
Hello Auntie, I'm just going to jump right in: I'm a transmale. I've been out-ish for a year and a half (it's difficult when you've been a "tomboy" all your life so nobody asks, but you don't want to just rub it in peoples faces), but ... More  →

Auntie SparkNotes: I Blame Myself for My Friend's Suicide

By kat_rosenfieldFebruary 5, 2015
Dear Auntie, Something terrible happened a few weeks ago, and I can't stop blaming myself. After you read this letter you're probably going to hate me. A boy in my class, who I'll call Dan, committed suicide. Everyone was shocked, because he was so smart, attractive, ... More  →

By kat_rosenfieldFebruary 4, 2015
Dear Auntie Sparknotes, I've always had anxiety problems, and my anxious side is always trying to convince my that I have something wrong with me, from cancer to schizophrenia. But lately I've realized that I actually do have perfectionism, I feel horrible if I just miss ... More  →

By kat_rosenfieldFebruary 2, 2015
Hi Auntie Sparknotes, How are you doing? For the sake of time (and your eyeballs), I'll make this somewhat short. The main question is: should I continue to date my boyfriend if I'm not sure I want to marry him in the future? I'm not sure ... More  →

Auntie SparkNotes: This Guy Obviously Likes Me But He Won't Talk To Me

By kat_rosenfieldJanuary 28, 2015
