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.

find it diffcult this morning to function. sleepy, lacking any montivion to do anything. all keep focusing on is all the shit that surround me right now. ex boyfriend a prick, have two children who i do love but finding it hard to rise above the darkness and care for them properly.think might be tad pariunod keep thinking the ex want me to kill my self. so he can run of with his girlfriend with our baby. getting a grip is proving harder than normal.feel like on a rollercoaster that forgotten to stop.

i am boiling with anger tonight. family problems. you know when you think that thing “suiside” but do’nt know how too. i hate my self for thinking as i have two beautyful children. but i am exsused and deeply unhappy with this life.sometimes i wish it was real what they say about 2012 and how the world going to end.least then there would be an end insight.



Untitled

suddenly really tried tonight. feeling numbed and just want to esape everything around me. no sence of want to be part of anything just want to hibernate away from it all. miss my baby boy. he off with his dad. painful. no one care cause it what right for him. but sometimes you just want to scream what about me. thinking of moving away down south. would be lonely,islated, and cut off from family support. but hey there nothing keeping me here anymore. i do’nt want to die here. time to living my dreams right?



Untitled

not been feeling that great this last few day. mostly down to a cold and having two active children who want and deserve attention. but been really distance and snappy with them.was managing feeling for ex. but gone back to hate and fear again. also thinking i might be abit bipolor because i seem to have a few days where i want to do hunderd things that day and get so irrated cause no one understand or want to help. then all ideas just stop being inportant and feel dead and just want to sleep. but possably just being hypercondrat.



sunshine

FEELING REALLY BAD TODAY. DRIVING WENT BAD, SAW THE EX RUNNING DOWN THE STREET HAPPY AS ANYTHING. COULD EVEN MUTTER A WORD TO HIM JUST WANT TO DIE. THIS GOAL GOING TO TAKE COURAGE.
