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 over my ex boyfriend
What the hell?

So today, I accidentally log onto 43Things for the first time in a year, and see that the last thing in my list is “Get over my ex-boyfriend.”

But… the last time I logged on we were still in a relationship??? Was I really so sad while we were broken up that I logged on and added that as a goal? And then blocked it out of my memories?! And was that directed towards him, or to the guy that I dated immediately after briefly and couldn’t get over for quite a while?! Or did one of my friends want to drop me a hint, log onto my account, and write that for me?

Funny thing, two days ago he called and told me that he agreed with my parents when they said I wasn’t over him. Then, today, right before I stumbled onto this account, I told my friend what he said, and she agreed with them too.

Oh well. I’m quite over all of them now.

quit neopets
THREE years.

Started playing neopets pretty soon after it started, when the Battledome wasn’t open, and the Hypno Helmet, now the H4000 Helmet and worth millions, could be purchased in the Space Station shop for under 300 neopoints. 3 years of my heart, tears, and time went into it, and I have to say that I learned a whole lot. But quitting was pretty easy. Got addicted to the Xanga instead -__-ll
