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.

so, in my fit of excitement over learning more about how to stand my ground maybe i also need to learn when to appropriately apply it.

i’ve doing it more often at work(and with my boss) and i think it’s almost become an issue a few times too many.

i think it’s more that i am so sick of being bottled up, and when you stay like that for so long people assume that you have no backbone. ‘you teach people how to treat you’ is the best quote to apply here for what i am experiencing.

what is the best way to know when?

two days in a row

today i got to talk with my professor about our class/organization we are creating. super excited about it because i finally got to go over all the little odds and ends and decide on official dates and rules and how we are going to present ourselves to future members.

yesterday my boyfriend and i went for a walk and started to talk about politics and i held my ground on my own opinions as we debated back and forth.
