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.

fall in love again
I'm dating a co-worker.

Which is something I never thought I would do. I’ve always heard so much against it, and in a lot of ways it sounded like a bad idea. On the flip side though, it seemed so silly not to date someone JUST because you work in the same building.

We had our first “official” date last night, but we had gone out last week a couple of times. And I say I’m dating him, however, I think it’s already progressed into a relationship. Neither of us want to see or be with anyone else and so we just kind of decided last night to “go steady”. lol

I’m already starting to fall. I can feel it. There’s something different about him than other men I’ve dated. We connect on multiple levels and he’s someone that I can really talk to and feel comfortable around. I don’t know. I guess we’ll see what happens. :)

get out of debt (read all 3 entries…)

I thought I was about 3000 dollars in debt, but it’s actually more around 4000.

And my checking account got over-drafted last week. So, that’s not helping anything. I thought I sent money from paypal into my bank account…apparently I didn’t confirm it. So I thought I had money in there when I didn’t. Thankfully, I only made one purchase. That made my account -2.02. Stick a 32 dollar per purchase on there and I’m -34.02. It could have been a lot worse.

But I really can’t afford it. I need ANOTHER part for my car. I’ve put over 800 dollars into that car in the past 3 months. Keeping in mind that I make less than 400 dollars a month and spend about 100 or more on gas each month…Yeah. Not good.

I put my 2 weeks in at work. Now, I have to go find a new job. Hopefully, making more than 400 freaking dollars a month.

It feels like I’m going to be in debt forever.

get out of debt (read all 3 entries…)

My job sucks.
I make like 100 dollars a week.
I get very few hours.
I’m trying to get a different one.
I’m never going to pay off my debt at this rate.
Gotta get that other job!
