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.

i started

an internship where i work outside doing planting native plants in the morning one day a week. i’m also working on going for a walk every morning to get morning sunlight to help with seasonal affective disorder during the winter.

I have had

a lot of trouble meeting the people who responded to my activity partner ad on craigslist. they are really flakey or something. one of my friends wants to go surfing tomorrow but now i have some stupid cold. i’m trying to relax and drink a lot of water… i wish i had more food in my house but i’m going to cook a lot of squash and eat it with noodles, that’s all i’ve been eating the past few days, i hate living alone you just end up eating all the same food over and over again. argh.

i’m going to try posting another ad on craigslist and emailing my friend who said she wanted to go surfing.

Posted an ad on craigslist

for outdoor sports buddies. and so many people responded. i should be able to start meeting a lot of people to go for walks with and such. i met one of them today and we went for a walk.

Did some gardening today!

And it was nice out in the sun.
