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.

ok so it was worth doing just to get it over with…. but idk it was a drunken one so i really dont remember it and i think it was waaaaayyyy to much tongue on my part and def on his!!!! idk what’s even happening with him…. BOYS SUCK!

i'm ready for it

i’m ready to have my first kiss! i want it to be something amazing and something i’ll tell my kids, well the girls, but i want it to happen soon. i think i’ve waited pretty patiently for 17, 18 years on sunday. i think my first kiss will be with someone that i will end up dating so i’ve always just figured i can wait because i’ve always felt like i was never in the place to have a relationship. i’ve wanted to have one but i think inside i knew i shouldnt. i’m such an emotional roller coaster and i’ve never really felt confortable with who i am so why should i have a person in my life that would have to deal with that too. but this year i think i’ve finally grown into myself. i still have my insecurities but i feel like i’m not going to be up and do and i can really open myself up to someone. and every time i think of a relationship i’ve always felt that it is something that is very mature and i think i’m finally there.


so why do i always mess things up with guys? i always get close to something happening then i mess it up.
