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.

- The Robots.

dream lucidly

i also forgot to add that after a while, it can really really mess with your head.

like to a point that going to bed is dreadful. i would be doing my lucid thing, then next thing i know, im awake in my bed, and my room looks EXACTLY HOW IT SHOULD. in one instance i went to turn on the light (which i later found out light switches never work), and i called my mom because the power was out. when she tried the light, she told me the power must be out and to get the dogs and come in her room. i did, and started telling her about my dream, and all of a sudden, BOOM, im awake in my bed, and everything is right in its place just like the time before. it took me a good 20 minutes to believe i was awake.

and besides that, i was having dreams that i was getting in painful situations, then “waking up” from the pain, to then only be put in another painful situation, and it could happen anywhere from 3-5 times before i was actually awake.. and the times when i was truely awake and wasnt sure.. that was the scariest. so, you have to be careful once you have too much control

definitely a good time

ive been doing this since i was little. never knew it was a weird thing. but sometimes its way more fun than being awake, especially when you dream of the same places and know exactly where to find the same people (and you can have some fun with them, if youre the kind of person like i am ;] )
