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.

Reading more.

I read maybe five books this summer, and keep on reading. They’re very interesting. I only hope it doesn’t slow down during school. Which has started this week.
Yay reading.

Summer Reading

I’m utilizing my summer, and reading as much as I can. So far, I’ve finished three books. I want to try and finish this fourth book I’m reading before school starts. I used to be able to read a book in three days, but I would be reading the entire time. Now, at least I’m reading. I’ll post a list of books I’ve completed this summer before school starts. :)

Be less shy (read all 7 entries…)
One step at a time.

I find that putting myself in a situation where I know people are nice is alot easier for me to approach people. I recently went to my first rave, and I found that everybody is so friendly and approachable. I want to do that again. I want to talk to whoever I want and make new friends. I’ve always been shy, but that’s because I’ve never known what to say to people. Now, I just decided that it’s easier to just ignor the people that don’t like me, or what I have to say. School starts soon too. I want to just talk to people, and not be afraid.

National Body Challenge

So, usually I fail at losing weight. Lately, I’ve been working out and eating less. It’s been working pretty good. To keep me level headed, I’ve been going to the National Body Challenge forum on and been getting advice. It’s been very helpful. I’m hoping to lose most of my weight by the end of this year. We’ll see. Hope it goes well.

Secretly posting a secret.

I really really want to post one, but I dunno. We’ll see how it turns out. I’m not entirely sure about how to do it, though.

Go to a rave (read all 3 entries…)
All my friends are into it.

Everybody I know has been to a rave. I vow that by the end of this summer I will go to a rave! If I don’t…I’ll be soo pissed.

Currently reading..

From the Corner of His Eye by Dean Koontz.

It’s definately good so far. The only thing that’s stopping me from continusouly reading it is the fact that I’ve been sick lately.

I’ve always loved to read, but haven’t done too much of it. Summer is always a good time to start new things. I plan to read most of the books that are on my shelf (that I haven’t read) by the end of this summer.

Ok so dig this..

I told this guy I like exactly how I felt. I told him I liked him, and I felt used because he totally stopped talking to me the moment he got a girlfriend. I told him I felt more like a fling then a friend. I’m so glad I told him. He hasn’t talked to me since, but the good thing is I’m not angry about that. I’m just going to let him go, and NOT chase after him. :P

be more feminine (read all 5 entries…)
Much better.

I’m totally digging the girliness that I didn’t know I had. I’m loving it. I can be me and be girly. My batbling shirt..everybody loves it. lol It’s cute..and has a touch of girliness. I’m just happy I’m me. I’m not wearing makeup that much anymore. I’m only wearing it if it’s a very special occassion, but I have people on myspace always telling me I look nice, so I guess that’s a good thing. I hope lol
I’m happy, but not satisfied yet. I want to test myself in a skirt this spring. We shall see…

Oh this sucks..kinda.

I’m hiding my Starburst bag from now on. I’ve managed to eat like ten Starburst right now. That may not be alot to you, but it’s 2AM and I just ate. That’s not good.
However I am starting to eat fruit. I had some watermelon today and yesterday. Tastey!!! I loved it. Yum. Anywho, I need to start going for some walks. I joined the National Body Challenge, and i intend on doing it. :D Yay!

Do well in school. (read all 6 entries…)
Woo freaking hoo!

Ok…I’m happy again. As you know I have a “D” in math. I found out I have to take it again because of pre-requisits, not because I didn’t get the units. Woo lol
Psychology: B (YES!!!)
History: B (I worked hard in that class. Not hard enough though. lol)
Political Science: C (It’s because I skipped a test. Otherwise I would have gotten a B, but I’m a dumby lol It’s ok though. I’m satisfied.)
Yay! I’m happy. Stupid C and D though, but next semester…No C’s or D’s next semester! I’ll make sure of that.

stop looking so sad (read all 5 entries…)
Ok..that's done.

Nobody has told me I look sad for three months now. Good. I’m done haha That’s my goal and if I can keep it up I’ll be happy.

Be less shy (read all 7 entries…)
Woo hoo!

Ok…I’m starting to get more and more over my shyness. The best part is that I’m going to take cheerleading this semester and that should DEFINATELY get rid of that shy bug I can’t seem to get rid of all the way.
On a good note..Audrey had a party and I talked to the one person I didn’t know all that well.
I will continue my quest until I am able to talk to whoever I want without feeling weird and uncomfortable.

That one song..

By Taylor Swift…”Love Story” makes me cry every time she gets to the part where Romeo proposes to her.
If only…..

That's not fun.

I went out with a guy friend of mine a couple of weeks ago. Him and I had a thing the summer after we graduated from high school. We hadn’t really seen each other since. Well, we went to the beach. he started making the moves on me. I straight out told him if he touches me again I will not hesitate to smack him. I felt very proud of myself for saying that. Before I would have felt bad and worried about risking our friendship. But he understood, and I was relieved to see he was mature about it.

Awww maaaaan!

Guess what happened? I got a feckn “D” in math. ::sigh:: Which means I have to take it again next semester. I’m going to find out the rest of my grades soon. Wee hoo! I am totally confident that I passed them. If I have passed all of those classes I’m going to say I did this goal. Then, I’ll start a new one. “Pass my math class” Gah..

MEET ADAM SANDLER (read all 2 entries…)

I really want to meet him. >.< I must meet Adam Sandler. Even if it’s just for like..5 minutes I don’t care. It’s not teven that he’s a celebrity. I just think he seems like a really cool person to meet.

be more feminine (read all 5 entries…)
Working on the feminine thing...

I’ve never worn makeup without feeling like a clown. I recently started putting makeup on, and I don’t feel so weird. I can actually put it on well. Ah…it feels good to be a girly girl for once.

Fall in love (read all 3 entries…)
I've never known it.

I’ve seen love, but I’ve never known it. I want to fall in love, and I want to have love come back to me. It can’t be a one way street, and I know I can’t force it, but I want to be in love.
