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.

Good job.. not..

I finally stopped overanalyzing this particular situation.. Starts someone after 2 weeks about it again =[..
Result: me starting overanlyzing the hole situation again.. and feeling bad =( * sigh *

Thank you for doing this.. (not).. If you want me to continue feeling bad about myself and having even less confidence.. you should totally bring it up again.

(I had to get that of my chest)

It's sad..

It’s sad when people you know,
become people you knew.
When you can walk right past someone
like they were never a big part of your life.
How you used to be able to talk for hours
and now you can barely even look at them..

(Not sure anymore where I go this from.. but it’s one of those “sayings” I found and just saved without the thought I would ever post it.. and then having problems with copyright or something like that =S.. I guess I got this from “Pounding Heartbeat”: ). It’s something I can (a probably other people too) really relate to at the moment.. After seeing someone again yesterday..

Posting this cause it’s one of those things I keep overanalyzing.. It’s just weird.. and I can’t understand.. that some people change that much, that they become people you knew.. and you can barely even look at them now.. or just can’t look at them at all.
