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.

I think I’ve done this and I am hoping that it stays this way. I am enjoying myself. I think in a year I’ll give the old heave ho to my meds.


Feeling good these days. I don’t really want to go to my check up, because well I don’t feel like I need it and I’m too cheep to pay the co-pay.


I had this bizarre dream last night that truly upset me. I don’t know why it affected me so and even when I told my husband it sounded ridiculous. It represents that hurt that I’ve always had that I’m not naturally a sweet. I have to completely go out of my way to be a sweetheart and this has always bothered me.

Are they real or are they placibo?

I don’t really notice much of a difference if I forget to take my medicine. That is unless it has been a few days, then I sink very low and I am a badger to be around. I don’t like it.


I hate days when I am sad or confused when I should not be at all. Everything is going great and I know it, but can’t bring myself to be cheerful. Yuck!

Have any of you ever had this experience?

This could be the most frusterating thing about depression: When you go to the pharmacy and there is some complication with your meds and they don’t even care or act concerned. I went to the pharmacy 3 times last week to fill my meds and I needed prior authorization from my insurance and had to wait for that to go through. I haven’t been on my meds for a week and it destroys my life. They don’t even care that I have to live my life during the whole wait. Do they even know what depression means?
