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.

and here i am again.

i was doing fine. i don’t know if it’s me working 40 hours and going to school full time and this damn cancer or what the hell it is, but I am getting so depressed. Depressed and INSECURE. My boyfriend is the most trustworthy guy I have ever known. he is my best friend, and now I am being irrational. Thinking things that I shoulnd’t be thinking and getting myself upset. Why can’t I just forget the past. Forget what I have been through and love with an open heart. I know we both deserve this shot at happiness.

we'll see

I want to be able to trust my boyfriend as he’s a great guy and I have no reason not to completely trust him. I can’t let my past hurt and betrayal run such a wonderful thing into the ground…we both deserve better than that.
