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
Good things come to those who wait.

My current boyfriend is the only one I’ve ever had. I felt like it was better to be single than settle. I didn’t want to be with the wrong guy and miss out on the right one.

When I was 21, after being happily single all my life, I by chance was introduced to my boyfriend through a mutual friend.

I was pretty much instantly attracted, but I tried to play it cool. I had a few other boys after me at the time too. But, something about him just was right. 10 days after meeting we became a couple.

Its been over a year now and I’m completely head over heels. I know its early days still, but that just means we have so much more time left to spend together.

Furthermore, he is younger and a different race. Two things a lot of girls would refuse a guy for.But, everything about him has made him who he is; the man I love.

go to law school
