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 still feel YUCK

the BF changed jobs AGAIN. I know he is having some mid life thing, he is trying to find his spot in life. somewhere. his mood rubs off on me, and I don’t try to cheer him up, or change his mood, I can’t cater to him every second, he is such a big kid. my kids are the same, my son is needy he wants mommy and son time, he likes it when I read capt underpants books, time doesn’t allow ALOT of time. my daughter, shes a brat. I don’t know what to do with this one.


there are some people that I can do without in my life, but I accept them and their role to test me, and try to bring me down, some days they can, but for the most part, they don’t I feel strong enough. My bf has been working a lot, a new schedule, midnites, and that sucks, I want to talk and spend time, like we used to but, I can’t, when I’m up he’s sleeping, and when I sleeping he’s at work…...I feel like I don’t have anyone to talk to now, I have been sad, not quite depressed just feeling alone. Other than these feelings School is going well, kids are ok, everything else is ok. I just feel yuck!

I am getting Better at this

everyday.. this weekend as I said in another entry, my weekend was reaaly good. I put myself around positive people and that was nice. my extended family wasn’t there, I like that too, very negative people. this makes life easier to accept good, and by doing that I feel less stress and less anger/rage ahhhh it’s so calm.

why is this so hard?

I have great kids a great BF, my health…why do I keep this thinking that it’s all going to go wrong, or that I don’t deserve good? I keep waiting for the crash, and life’s BAD things come back!! I want to accept good, like my BF he is good, but I still have Q’s about that, tho latley not as many or as often, I guess we start somewhere…. maybe with this new meds, and getting along better with myself and avoiding the BAD elements in life like mom dad x husband(as much as I can) things are better to accept!
