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.

Life Catching Up

My life is catching up to me quickly. In just two days I will start my last semester of university. Oh how I really wish that I could pause everything Zack Morris style and fix everything that is running through my mind. But I have felt better these last few weeks. The inescapable feeling of null pain is gone now I mostly have to deal with what I didn’t want to deal with in the first place lol, plus a few friendships that were battered along the way.
It is hard to admit but one of the things that I noticed was when I was feeling especially bad I was so sensitive to what anything said and I unleashed some incredible rage on friends and said so many things that shouldnt’ have been said. They understand that it wasn’t me but at the same time those things are still out there and can’t be taken back.
I am working on having a good start to this semester. I have 5 classes now, so I am a bit wary about being able to cope with the workload. But, I have upcoming appointments with my counsellor, doctor and even the real crazy doctor (psychiatrist) within the first 48 hours of school starting! That will have to help lol.
