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.

2012 is about me

2011 was a year of change and honestly a bit of a rollercoaster for me to say the least. My boyfriend of four years and I ended our relationship and little after I found that he had been as faithful to me as I had imagined. Followed by a semester of ups and downs, refinding myself and then losing myself in a casual dating relationship, I am putting my foot down. 2012 is about me.

I have a lot of things that I want out of this year that I have been waiting for my entire life, such as graduating college and applying to osteopathic medical school. I want to move out of state and away from everything that I know and become the person I have always held inside of me. I have already returned/became more of myself since my relationship with my ex ended nearly five months ago. I am truly myself now, the person I had only briefly been able to be during those four years of dating. I am not willing to let go of who I truly am again, especially not for any man. I hope that I don’t find the man that is meant for me this year, I won’t be ready for him.

To 2012, let us all be more ourselves and be as happy as we are meant to be. Find the inner erotic in yourself and don’t let go.
