there are two hours left until midnight here in san francisco, and there are too many messages and farewells in my inbox to respond to them all before then. so i think that i’ll just sign off early instead..if i didn’t answer you directly, know that i love each and every one of you.
it’s hard to believe that as early as december 2010, i was still closeted and terrified of letting others know the truth about my gender. i often felt hopeless and alone. today, i’m happier than i could have ever dreamed possible and excited for what the future will bring. thank you all so much for helping to make my transition experience over these past two years amazing and unforgettable.

I just wanted to say thank you for opening yourself up to us. The last year or so of following your blog has helped me to be more aware of Trans* issues, and to actively be a better ally.. Good luck with your future endeavors..I know you're going to go extremely far :) — Asked by mariann-theowl

Hey Annika! I'm a trans dude with little interest in cute shoes (we can't all be perfect, I guess!), but I have really enjoyed reading your tumblr. At the same time, I also like hearing that you're entering a new phase in your life. Right now I feel like so much of my life is spent dwelling on trans topics, but yesterday was my 6 month T-day, and it is so encouraging to think that in 18 months I might not feel the need to continually refresh tumblr and youtube and can live this life I've made. — Asked by Anonymous

hi! congrats on 6 months! and you totally get it- we may be trans*, but that fact that we were designated the wrong sex at birth doesn’t define who we are as people. i’ve really enjoyed the past couple years and i’ve learned so much about myself and the world around me, but i’m also so excited to focus on things that have nothing to do with my gender for a while :)

I just wanted to say that your blog has been a wonderful read. I've learned so much about sexuality from you, and I've really enjoyed the posts you've made. I'm sad to see you go, but I'm also excited to see where you'll be in the future!! :) — Asked by lonesome--sundown

me too, girl! :)

Hi Annika. I was late to the party following you, but just wanted to say thank you for your blog, and for your interview on Third Gender Radio with Baily Jay. Your one of the strong girls that helped inspire me to accept myself and transition. Thank you. — Asked by alistofsound

you’re so welcome! but there’s really no need to thank me- i’ve enjoyed every moment of it :)

Dear Annika, I'm so sorry to see you go. You were so inspirational to me. You are so beautiful inside and out. I loved following your changes. Best of luck. XXX Carla — Asked by carlaflash
