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.

Stop Picking At My Face (read all 23 entries…)
starting over

So, about a month and a half ago, I got laid off from my job. So I stopped taking my birth control (lybrel) which I got no period on. I cant really afford it now. So I think stress and going off the birth contol caused my hormones to go out of conrol, and started causing me to break out. Then I just got my first period in almost 2 years. So, last night I picked at my face and made it look like crap, now I’m just feeling depressed. I am trying to get into a school right now that starts in August for skin care (esthetics). I would eventually like to become a dermatologist. But, how can I go to school for skin when my own face looks like shit? That is like going to a personal trainer who is out of shape. So 3 weeks to break a habit starts again today for me. It worked last time. I will count tomorrow as day one as I already picked today. Wish me luck!!!

I know that your face might not look as well as you would like right now, but I don’t think that should discourage you in the slightest bit in your pursuit of going to school for skin care. You care enough to want to find balance with your own skin that I think you could be a great encouragement to those who will come to you for help with their own skin problems. :)
