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.

Last night mike and i bought the things to make our own cigs. it comes out to be much cheaper!
one step at a time!
hes really into it too. we got a change jar started, and we already have about 30 dollars in it!!
were being really generous about it too. putting paper money in the change jar and such. i think we can do this if we really put our minds to it!



i need to get out!

ill try and do this without typing my life story..
i need to find somewhere else to live. and in order to do so, i need to save money. i only make 8 dollars an hour, and its hard to save with the bills i have. excuses excuses blah blah blah. well heres how im going to do it:
whatever i have in my bank account when i get paid, (money from the previous week) will go into a savings account. i want to move out before next summer.
