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.

Marking as done

I have done well and am much better at talking to new people – my biggest issue was with awkward silences. But I have improved way beyond expectations :)

I think I'm much less shy now

I do and say crazy things and am better at meeting people. I think I’m more confident because of my last year and it has raised my self esteem. Although I feel much less shy when I think I look good. So maybe it is extremely related to self esteem. Therefore: To be the extremely extroverted I would need to lose a little weight. Not much – I don’t want to be a lollipop, about 5 kilos. But hey, Ive been thinking that since forever, and I dont even know how much I weigh. And it’s more about firmness and measurements anyway.
And I want a haircut!
I am still awful at making conversation with people I have no interest in and doubt I’ll ever see again. Not so good. How can I fake interest? Or even better actually be interested?


My efforts seem to be paying off.

Basically I’ve been making an effort to be friendly and open and talk and ask questions.

I’ve met a whole lot of new people – one of my friends had a party on the weekend, and one of the girls I met I’ve seen twice since then and we had good conversations. Also in the language classes I do, every time you sit in a different place, next to someone new.

What happens though, when you can’t think of anything else to say? This happens to me. I sit there and rack my brains for something to say, because there is just nothing to say. Maybe I should learn some random facts to air in these silences. I should listen to “the facts of life” by Lazyboy more often then… maybe they’ll sink in subliminally :)

it's hard...

I’m in nuuk and i’ve only been here for a week and a half, so the only people i’ve met are from my handball team and a few randoms who i’ve talked to for a few minutes at the most while out and about.
I want to go out on friday but am petrified of sitting by myself the whole night. it can be hard here because i don’t speak greenlandic and my danish isn’t perfect. I don’t want to go home early either – i haven’t been out on the weekend since the week before i left denmark… three weeks ago! aaah

sarahkristina has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.
