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.

cglover36 foucusing on me right now

learn to share my feelings with others

I have a hard time opening up and trusting people, I’ve never completely opened up or been completely honest with someone, and I’m 16 and there are times when I wish I could talk to someone, for so many years I’ve held things in, and it has just damaged my spirit. I sometimes feel like, if someone knew everything about me, everything I’ve been through or have done, they wouldn’t like me. I sometimes feel stupid for displaying my emotions, If I start crying, I just suck it up and smile or just say my eye is watering or I had something in my eye. I want to be able to tell my friends how I’m doing, and be able to cry in front of them, and not to hold everything in, because it’s damaging to a little girl who’s known nothing but hurt and disappointment since she was 7. I know this is going to take me some time, I have so much to sort out



I want to:
