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.

Kite's Joy

Not exactly a poem, but wrote it during difficult time-

The reason for the kite to fly happily in the sky, is not because it’s free.
It’s because there’s a string that will eventually tug it close.
Even if it could fly freely, no matter how high it flies…even if it could reach outer space, it wouldn’t be happy.
Beyond the string is a place to go home to.
Even if it gets tattered and torn or becomes useless, there is a gentle hand that will hold it close.
That’s why I can fly.For that, I would live the rest of my life as a useless creature.

Stuck in an airport during a snow storm.

only you can make this right
you’re my last beam of light
dont be scared-i dont bite
let’s just hold hands tonight
snow is glistening oh so white
for one lets not pick a fight
that stars are burning for us so bright
but you beside me make a better site
this is more than love at first sight
im not saying this to be polite
lets just not forget about tonight
for tomorrow i’ll hop alone on that flight

Not wanting 120 anymore.

Its been what? a year now? Such a horrible year- i’ve been so depressed. With my grandma’s first death anniversary coming up soon i started wondering what i was doing this time last year and somehow came to want to loose weight again.

I totally derailed and im now at 146- though not for long! Got to find more motivation, even if its fake. I need something to strive for (hopefully health, since seeing what i used to eat i find myself disgusted) Still, i sometimes hit all time lows and im so tempted to just throw up, but i’ve only gotten so far as to going to the bathroom and trying to stick my finger down but i can never finish- sucks having a conscience (besides, my teeth are pretty, i dont want to ruin one of the only things i like about myself)

I have to find a solution- any solution- to take my mind off the most important matter : i miss her.
