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.

find true love
Any inspiration?

I’ve been through intense relationships. Even online. They’re all gone. I am dating someone right now. We used to be friends in university. But I’m not sure. He lives in another town, and nothing makes me move out with him. We see each other every 3 weeks, we still talk everyday. I am not sure if he’s true love or not. And since I’m doubting it I guess he isn’t.
But I feel so OLD. I’m 24 and so damn scared of getting closer to my 30s and being by myself. I don’t see sense in my life alone. I could just stop being with this guy, but I am terrified of being by myself.
Don’t get me wrong – he’s awesome. We’re good friends. We do well in bed. But I don’t feel how I’ve felt before. Maybe I’m too old to fall in love anymore. And I dream, as I’ve always dreamed, of true, strong, nonsense, everlasting LOVE. Just like in the romance novels. Can’t stop believing. But there’s no one like that. All men by now just care for looks. For being independent enough. For not getting married too young. Seems like I’m behind the times. I’m desolated. It’s affecting my work.

Discover what does Eric's bg drawing mean

It was not anything that I was expecting. But every single idea in the drawing made me think of myself, of how true it was somehow, and it impressed me how he could read me so well.
It brought so many ideas into my head that I will not write in here but in my private diary :)
