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 want to fall in love

If theres a will, theres a way.

I have faith in myself and who I am as an individual. Im young, vibrant, beautiful and I know I can do anything I set my mind to. Everyone wants love in some shape or form, whether we want to declare it or keep it hidden, we all want it. After a heartbreak, it’s easy to keep your heart closed, and keep it that way for along time, until eventually, sometimes when you least expect it, you fall in love. I don’t know if I have fallen in love, but, I can’t seem to put another name to it. It’s hard for me to completely trust, in all aspects in a relationship, it’s difficult for me to actually be in a relationship because I just don’t want it to fail. I dont want to have unrealistic dreams, I dont want my head stuck in a cloud in love with someone when the reality is that, it never was, it isn’t and it never will be.
I feel so in love that I just want to scream it, even if its silly, even if its not “real” “true” love, That doesnt mean that i dont have this incredible undescribable feeling for him. Ive never fallen for a friend before, I usually just jumped into relationships, but these feelings grew from a friendship, it’s comforting to know this is not unrequited love. I love being around him, i think about him a lot, he makes me laugh, and i just keep wanting more. I have all of these feelings yet, Im afraid to go on to the next step, im afraid he wont accept me the more he knows me, im afraid he wont accept me for the things that im most conscious about. Im scared that our relationship would end, and thats why i dont even want to begin one. I wish he would understand, but sometimes even though i feel strong feelings, I need to think with my head, because in the end, that could be the best decision for me.
