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.

at 149 which is pretty good. but i think i’ve lost muscle tone and gained fat. i want to work on toning exercises, get back to going to yoga once a day. (or a few times a week) and walking further. if i can do the long loop with baci and do yoga 3 times per week i should be ok. i can do zumba classes too.

and no processed food and lots of veggies, and juice. and lentils every day.

I’m trying to use sparkpeople more. it’s hard during the holidays, the normal routine is disrupted, more drinking, more sweet and starchy foods, more sitting around talking, and less exercising. I tried to get my exercise in, as best i could.

like i said we had a fight. i dont’ know what to do now. we’ve been together one year, so maybe we’re at the point where the relationship gets a little more difficult, things get more serious and significant decisions need to be made. where to live, whether to get married,

got in a big fight with f last night (a huge fight, maybe our biggest so far) because i want to get married and i also want to buy a different house than his small dark condo, and my mom has offered to give us a couple thousand to invest in a bigger house. however he doesn’t want to move to a bigger place, he only wants to take the money to pay off his condo he is already living in (which i don’t want to do). he then said a lot of hurtful things about my mom, like she is very rude and has no social skills and stuff like that. i know she is too blunt and overly honest but he said it in a really hurtful way. i don’t know if i want to live in this condo my whole life and

right now it’s 8am on a sunday and i’m sitting in bed listening to him snore really loudly. i think my sleep is suffering which affects everything else especially with my bipolar, where sleep is one of the number one tools for management.

i don’t know what i should do. i am scared i won’t be happy in his condo, but i am scared to break up, i remember how i fell apart last time i broke up with my ex (he dumped me) but f said some pretty hurtful things. a lot of it was because he was hungry i think but some of that stuff… and he said i was too dependent on her but then i said well i can try and get a job, but he said i should not. i don’t know.

maybe he’s right, maybe we can’t afford a bigger place, but i think if we put the money down then we could.

and then as i get older, will i be able to meet someone? who knows. and will i ever have kids or get married? now i’m starting to wonder. maybe not. f gave me this diamond engagement ring which i thought meant we were getting married but now i don’t know any more and i just feel so sad.

the worst part is that i don’t know for sure how he feels about me. i got upset with how he was talking about my mom last night and how we couldn’t afford the house and how he didn’t want to take her help and then i just wanted to leave so i started walking out the door and he didn’t try and stop me or anything he just said it would be nice to be alone for a night. and then he said he would drive me because i said i was too upset to drive.

later after dinner he changed his mind and i changed my mind but i am still really upset about it.

I thought I was managing my life ok but i got really screaming mad last night. i have been taking my medication so i don’t know what the problem is. i haven’t been in therapy lately though, maybe that’s part of the problem.

f said i was aggressive and that he wanted me to move back to santa cruz. i don’t know if he’s serious, we talked about it afterwards and he said i didn’t have to… but i am worried about myself.
