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.

Junior High With Trich= BAD

Junior high 7’th grade is almost done at my school and i have been made fun of multiple times!! Its always behind my back, they may think they are being quiet but truth be told they are not!!! And then they have the nerve to turn around and act like my friends? One girl that was always nice to me and we hung out alot, was saying stuff like, ” oh my god, if she got any f* balder we might as well just rip out the rest of her hair and maybe then shell look DECENTWTF!!! She said this yesterday in the same classroom 3 rows away, and then she asked me,” So what are u doing for your birthday, im your friend so im hangin out with u right?” i turned around and started talking to my REAL friends! Sorry if u read this and got bored but ADVICE PLEASE! :(

Advice from someone who's been there

I know it hurts to go through this is school. I used to be made fun of all the time. I wish I could make it hurt less for you.

I can tell you that you’re not alone. That I am here if you ever need to talk or let off steam.

And, your true friends will be kind to you no matter what. Be kind to everyone, but try to be around people who treat you well. If someone doesn’t treat you well, it’s okay to tell them, to let them know that they hurt your feelings and it’s okay to choose to not be around them anymore.
