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.

this is all happening so fast but I’ve never been more sure of anything in my life.

And again

Zachary is over with completely. It’s been awhile since I’ve had feelings for him.

We went for ice cream a few times, we’ve hung out a few times, but nothing romantic really. We flirted a little bit. Buuuutttt he had sex with some girl, and not only is she 14, she is disgusting. So, I can never forgive him for that.

It’s really cool though, because now I know that i CANT go back to him after an episode like that.


I’m head over heals for this one guy.

But I’m with another.

It’s a really messed up situation.

I wish I could explain it

I also wish we didn’t do this crap to ourselves.

It’s almost like we like hurting this bad that we always are putting ourselves in places like this.

Oh well, hopefully it all works out for the best.

That lovely boy

Zachary is supposed to come over tomorrow. I don’t know if he actually will. He said he would call me tonight or tomorrow to talk about it. He didn’t call yet.. i tried his cell and it’s off. Hopefully he calls me back tonight so i’m not waiting all night without a phone call. I’m guessing that’s how it’s going to be though. If he bails on me tomorrow, I’m going to be so pissed off.


Remember Zac? Randomly started talking again. Says he loves me. Says he misses me. Starts crying sometimes. Hm. Yeah, Oops. I dont want the lectures.


I haven’t been single since 6th grade, I thought after the Chris thing I’d be single for a little. Wrong.

Ok, so, his name is Tim, and he is fabulous. He’s 5’6”, I find it to be fabulous, because I’m real short. He’s also gorgeous. He’s also the sweetest person ever. I’ll update this one in a week…

Oooh.. Zachary

I met him when I was 14 and we were both dating other people. I was still crazy about him, and eventually I found out that he was crazy about me too. We got in a few disagreements and stopped talking. When we were 15, 3 months later after a summer had past, we started talking again. Soon after, we started dating and fell in love.

We were the most compatible people in the beginning. For the first 8 or 9 months, actually. Our differences started to get to our relationship, and he started doing things and going places with people I didn’t approve of. So.. I made the mistake of breaking up with him, and kissing his cousin.

I was angry at the time, I didn’t think I’d ever forgive him.. but now I feel it was so insignificant and knowing that we can never get back together kills me.

It was the kind of love that kept you sane and made you go crazy all at the same time. The love was good. We were good.

I wonder if I’ll ever find it again? I’d rather him take me back than anything else in the world, but I know he won’t, believe me, I’ve tried. But maybe I could find someone who will make me feel the same way again..
