Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Hero_Winged being different is probably the best thing that happened to me

grow wings (read all 231 entries…)
bullying

Well these girls who cyberbullied me last year and bullied me in the beginning of this year are bullying me again. They made fun of a quote I made and said that it was too confusing and didn’t make any sense :(

This is the quote they made fun of “the impossible is just the possible we don’t understand yet”

What’s so confusing about it?! I just don’t understand those girls. To make things worse my friends at school aren’t supporting me at all and they say I’m being rude when I haven’t done anything to them! I feel depressed. I really hope I don’t start cutting again. D:
I guess I can only turn to SkyBird and you guys. At least I know you all care for me. O:-)

Yeah life is pretty unfair.

Actually this is the best year of my whole life. I was able to join this goal and help others. I always wanted to be a real Hero and I finally feel like one.

Actually my friends aren’t acting like the cause they’re scared. It’s cause they’re jealous if SkyBird and me. I don’t know why they’re jealous but I could care less.

Thanks. :)

Jealousy is like a sickness… :/

And I’m glad you’ve had a great year. :)
