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 (read all 2 entries…)

It just happened. I love him very much and he means a lot to me. I think he means so much to me because he’s the reason that i know that i can love someone else besides me ex. My boyfriend allows me to be entirely myself, even when i’m a pain in the ass. He makes me laugh and i love spending my time with him. He makes me feel good about myself and it’s amazing what he puts up with sometimes when i’m having one of my fits. He loves me…for me. I dont have to try too hard to be with him.

It was just like the movies! I loved it all, esp the food!!!!

I was dating 4 different guys within a time span of two weeks. Everyday was one of the 4 boys. Just dinners, very innocent and casual. It was fun and it made me realize that I’m not so bad of a person =P …my ex boyfriends loss., I’m only dating one of the 4 boys everyday. He’s my boyfriend :)

Since January

Thus far, I’ve read:

1. “My Year of Meats”
2. “Water for Elephants”

My goal is to read 2-3 books per month. January was a slow reading month and i’m trying my best to keep up on this goal. It’s February, and i have already finished a book in one week! yay! More readings to come.

First cut.

If you you love someone and know deep down that it’s wrong…..let go and move on.

Do i want to be happy? The answer is yes…

help a total stranger
Easiest goal by far...

This isn’t hard to do at all when you’re visiting a third world country. There are countless people that are in need; both old and young. I’m in Vietnam right now and i’ve never been more appreciative of my life more than now. I will never forget this experience, the simple things that i take for granted such as tap water or even shoes are hard to come by when food isn’t even a choice most days. I’m gonna take this off my list, but i will never stop trying to help where i can help or give when i can give. Breaks my heart to see the circumstances of people who aren’t as fortunate as we are in America.

Oh, that crazy guy...that i can't seem to shake.


“It’s a relief to know that you haven’t given up on me… I feel that this was supposed to happen so I could grow up more! I haven’t been meeting new people as much.. Being stuck here in the country can get stagnet at times…”

I’ve known him for exactly 3 weeks and 3 days, today! He was shy, than he was sweet, than he was psychotic!, he’s my friend. Funny, i never let them stick around long enough to even get on my nerves…but with this one, he drove me to the roof! people..what interesting things they are.

i like.

I made out with a guy at my friend’s bday party! He’s one of my friend’s brothers. This is coming from someone that would never never do such a thing! I’ve only kissed less than a handful of boys in my life and i’m in my 20’s. ;) i liked it too! haha.

Alright its been about 2.5 weeks since i’ve started workin out my lazy ass! I enrolled in a yoga and pilates class, and they alternate every other day. I also write down what i eat every day just to see what i eat and i goto the gym at least 5 days a week. haha. OH, btw i cut all cookies/brownies/and cupcakes out of my diet this month :/ so sad haha.

So far, i just dropped my yoga class cuz it was ridiculous! Who the hell listens to the backstreet boys, avril lavigne, and mary j while they do freakin yoga?! To top it off i have these stupid girls next to me singing along to all of the songs while we’re doin the swan dive! seriously. I’ve taken yoga classes before and this was not how it was done. so stupid. haha, so yeah i dropped the class. I love my pilates class though! :)

I’ve lost 2.5 pounds so far and went from a 32.5” waist to a 31” waist! I measured myself today and i think i’m less than 31” :D

inches don't lie

So i found out that it’s a bit hard to lose 5 lbs. you have to consider water weight and what time of the day it is, or if you’re gaining muscle mass yadada. I’m one of those people who have a unsteady weight. it goes UP and DOWN all the time. What i found out was measuring the inches around your body is more accurate!

Btw, I’m taking a pilates and yoga class. I also goto the GYM two times a day. EVERYDAY. I don’t eat after 5, unless it’s a fruit. Lets see what the results will be in a month. :)
