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.

I wana be

Confident, brave, outgoing
Happy :people are also drawn to happy people
Be able to say whatever I want whenever I want to whoever I want
Talk about anything to break the ice
Make the other person feel as though u r interested in his life as all people want to be loved and accepted..when u meet someone for the first time, he\she also feels shy and closed as u do. We are all the same.

God has His own ways!

Wow I can’t believe this happened to me. V still loves me. I can’t believe he waited 4 years to tell me face to face. He looked at me the same way he used to. He even agreed to come here for just 3 days all the way. He actually saved me when I had lost all hope. I guess God sent him right on time. Life is full of surprises and the least expected things can happen. So I’ve learnt never to lose hope.
I can’t mark this goal as done though. 80percent is done :)

I want to believe...

That love still exists..but I am losing faith. My mom and dad had an arranged marriage and my dad cheated on my mom and my mom still forgave him, continued to stay with him because of me and my brother who is younger than me. Even then I believed that people are not the same. If it happened with my mom, it is not necessary that it will happen with me. Then my first boyfriend broke up with me because I said that I don’t want to be physical with him. My second boyfriend was so controlling and manipulative that he turned me against my family and friends somehow. My parents made me realise what was happening. He used to ask me for money and had me totally under his control. It was puppy love with my 1st boyfriend but still they both broke my heart. I did not lose hope.
I met him, my 3rd..he was so amazing. He was perfect for me. I loved him sooo much. I did everything I could to make him happy. I was so madly in love with him. He annoyed me sometimes but I was soo in love. And then I found out that he is not so perfect after all. He lied to me about his ex and I found out and he says he cares about me but I don’t trust him. I don’t think I can trust any guy after this. I am losing all my faith about relationships. Do people really love each other? Or do they just be with each other to fulfill their own selfish needs? I don’t think I have the courage to love someone the way I loved him..are all guys like this??
Oh nd for the record I was also molested by my cousin brother when I was younger.

I've started

Eating better and I also drink lots of skin has also improved..I want to start praying too ..


And I used to eat skin was soo glowing..I think people are more drawn to happy peoplem and u can talk about anything to break the ice. Just need to keep the conversation going. Instead of just saying yes or no, bring in d details. Ask them questions and they will feel u r interested in their life. After all, everybody,s the same. Other people aLso want to feel accepted like u do.

I'm gonna change for the better

I had become a happy person..I mean reallly..I never used to get sad, at all. I used to go to my class at nifd, then came back, had lunch, slept, went to shop, had dinner, went online (mostly yahoo answers where I believe I helped people) then slept. I was confident, assertive, outgoing. I could talk to any person without any hesitation. And now, I have become soo lazy, and the worst part is I’m not able to handle my emotions. But I’m not gonna b like this anymore.
