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.

Big chance to quit now. Have none and won’t have for 2 weeks. I’m hoping I can quit now as long as I don’t just start again when the dealer gets back. Will be hard but I feel determined to do this now.

I really need to stop getting stoned and going on ebay. I am so close to buying an original painting of a nude.

It’s a beaut.

This weekend has been a complete blur. Ran out now and going to try a few days off. Well got one left. I think the idea is to make a concrete decision and then stick to it. So that is what I’m doing, right now. As I’m smoking the last one…

I’m a bit scared about the amount of weed I’ve been smoking. Others have noticed it is excessive :/

Night off tonight, not by choice. Will probably struggle to get to sleep and have a pretty depressing night lying awake thinking about things. If I could go a few days I might have a chance of quitting. I still feel like it is imperative that I quit but my life is so miserable and boring that it just makes me want to smoke. Things really are shit. I’ve got no money, no girlfriend, I live with someone who doesn’t like me and I hate my job. Good times.

Still smoking, even though I’m aware of how it’s fucking me up. It’s really stupid, can’t handle the pressure of life without smoking though, really I can’t. I know it is a contributing factor but it becomes a kind of vicious circle. I feel low today.

Housemate just went mental at me for smoking their weed. Feel a bit bad and think I will have to stay out of their way for the foreseeable. Another wake up call.

Really need to crack on with this. Its actually been getting worse. I had one before work the other day, which I haven’t done for 8 months. And had one before I go to see my parents today. I don’t know why it has increased. I’m thinking it might be becuase of the anti-depressants making me feel I can handle it better and maybe because I think I’ll quit soon, may as well treat myself. But it can’t work like that. Starting again tomorrow. It should be the easiest thing in the world to do, all you have to do is not smoke but no one is going to force me not to. I’m not doing this for anyone else, only for myself which makes it harder.



Untitled

It feels like weed is the only way I can connect with any kind of positive emotion. I know this is because I’ve been smoking it too long, nevertheless I don’t know if I will resist it tonight.
