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.

PepperyJasmine is trying to keep it together.

have a regular sleep schedule (read all 16 entries…)
well I went to sleep at 9 last night and woke up at 6

that is pretty much my ideal sleep schedule. 9 hours ish, and getting up early going to sleep early. i feel rested and i want to make that my regular schedule. i think i will be mentally more clear and get more done, and definitely my mind will be better. More functional. When I have an erratic sleep schedule, sometimes staying up late for parties or whatever, I notice that I tend to have erratic thoughts, being paranoid or having psychoses so it is much better to just have a regular sleep schedule then I just feel completely normal and can relate to people in a completely normal way. The frustrating thing is when other people don’t understand. Lots of people I know like to socialize in the evenings and late at night. Which makes sense because they work during the day… It’s kind of sad actually. I could try and change my hours to 10 to 7 or something but I really feel better getting to sleep earlier. As you start staying up later… then people start drinking, and I don’t like to drink either as that also makes my bipolar worse. So the 9 to 6 routine is best for me, it also avoids the drinking scene. And I can socialize with people during the day hopefully or on the weekends. And at dance class and during yoga class… I see people even if we don’t get much of a chance to talk.

I think there is a guy who goes to yoga who doesn’t work… Maybe he would like to go for a walk with me sometime…
