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.

Much closer

I have begun to exercise every day possible, I’m working my way up to running 10 miles, my current record is 2.5 miles. I stopped eating potato chips and candy bars altogether (though I will have them once every few months, nothing wrong with that, though). I am still kinda negative and struggle to put forth a lot of effort in life, but I blame most of that on ADD medication.

Speaking of the medication, I believe that it is responsible for a lot of my unhealthy practices. It just ruins your life. When I’m on it, there are two things that I struggle with: feeling pleasure and sleeping. It also makes my heart rate shoot through the roof, I was at 100 BPM in the morning, just sitting still. Fortunately, however, I am going to try an alternative therapy called neurofeedback which is supposed to cure ADD altogether.

I'm surprised I'm not fat

In fact, I’m very skinny. I did sports (Baseball, Basketball, Flag Football, and Floor Hockey) from 3rd Grade-5th Grade. In 6th Grade, I picked up skiing, and has been the only sport I do, but I can only do it once a year. I occasionally swim or ride my bike. I’ve never had a good diet, my taste buds simply disable from eating fruits and most vegetables, and my allergies (peanuts, nuts, eggs, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, and shellfish) are very debilitating. I have been living a very sedentary lifestile, and have had a lot of stress (being bullied, ADD with school, having annoying friends, ect). I live almost only on pretzels, can anyone help me?


I want to:
