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.

3 more days until i have my surgery. im freakin out maaaan lol. not really, but still.
im kinda excited. weird?



its going to happen next friday.

on sunday night i was having the worst pain of y life in my chest and i seriously thought i was having a heart attack.
so i was rushed to the emergency room and only waited 10 mins. when the waiting time was 6-8hours!! so i was put in the emerg ward and i had 2 doctors on me testing me and getting blood work and putting iv;s in me. it was so intense and happened so fast.
it was the worst pain of my life and i never cried so hard.
so after a while my results came back and it turns out that i have pancreatitus and gall stones. i was then told that its rare for someone my age to get it because they normmaly only see this in older people who abuse alcohol. lol and that is most definitly not me hahha.
so i was kept in the hospital for 3 days and i wasnt allowed to eat or drink anything. it was horrible.
so now im having my gall bladder removed next friday. im terrified.
