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.

give me peace

on the scale of one to ten i have a life that scores 8 on being peaceful, i am an only child so no sibling drama (though i spent 80% of my life craving it) than i am kind of fond of being alone and i spent 50% of my waking hours on my laptop with headphones shoved up my ears, snapping at anyone who so much as attempts to speak to me, im pretty much successful at blocking out the world yet it doesnt seem enough.. i dont know what it is that im running from, i wasnt like this, i dont like being like this but i want peace rather i need peace.. writing gave me peace and today im writing after 2 weeks, i need peace so bad that its like my system is blocking away any and all contacts from the outer world.. i sit around thinking about nothing and liking it.. outwardly i am stagnant, completely still yet inwardly im restless.. i think im hoping that if i sit still enough,for long enough, some of the calm of my composure will penetrate to my inside via osmosis or something..



I want to:
