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.

get rid of bad friends (read all 2 entries…)

People! I have officially completed this goal!
I have finally managed to get rid of the two bad friends I had when I first began working on this goal. After a lot of bad moments spent with them, I have finally managed to prove that I am stronger than both of them. I have moved on to better people who respect me for who I am and who I know from the bottom of my heart that they will always be there for me, no matter what.
I have come out of this experience like a new person. I feel stronger inside and I am able to conquer anything now. Of coarse, I always remember that quote that I read when I first began working on this goal:
“That which doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”
I wish all of you the same happiness and content I have now.
Remember, you can do this!

get rid of bad friends (read all 2 entries…)
Some friend she is..

I’ve been with my “friend” for over 5 years now and I’ve always been there for her and supported her completely!! Without showing arrogance I can honestly tell you guys that I am the best kind of friend that girl could ever have!
She’s now been ignoring me for the past 4 weeks. I asked my other friend about it and she told me that the girl’s mad at me because of a very very very silly reason. She doesn’t like me having friends!! I am expected to have NO friends while she gets to prance around with her so-called friends who only want to use her. It’s blindingly obvious! I’ve been soo upset lately over her and I honestly need advice. I know I must be strong, but it’s just that she annoys me SO MUCH!!!! Argh!
And I’ve tried to talk to her! She just gives me this big attitude problem look. I am really starting to hate her and I’m gonna let her and her friends be and one day she’ll see that they aren’t exactly “true” friends. I don’t think I’ll forgive her when that day comes.
thanks for letting me get this off my chest

read more manga
Girl Got Game

I Love manga books!!
Which is why I got my friend to copy 4 of her favorite titles onto a CD for me to read on the laptop.
I’m currently reading Girl Got Game, which is so hilarious!!!
After that, I’m going to start on either A Thousand Years of Snow, Alice 19th, or Ju’nai Tokkou Taichou.

See all entries ...
