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.

Find my favorite pair of panties =(

How is it possible that stuff just dissapears from your laundry drawyer, this is quite the mystery. I often find my underwear lying in random places in the house ! And i cant find my favaorite purple G-string!!!!!!! =’(

get a tan

Yay! I finally went and made an appointment to go tanning. My first time using a tanning bed will be tomorrow =)
I’m a little hesitant just because of how dangerous it can be for you, and I feel kind of naive doing something I know isn’t good, but I won’t do it often and I just really want to be tanned for when school starts. Plus I didn’t even get alot of sun this summer so I should be okay :S

make peace with the past (read all 2 entries…)

Today after a very long stressful day I decided I needed to get my life back on track. Although I still have a few mixed emotions, I can genuinely say that I have finally let go of all the bad things that have happened to me in this life. I’m not saying that I hope to forget all these tragic happenings – no – I just want to be able to accept the fact that they’ve happened and learn from each situation but not make it change or determine who I am. All my flaws, all the mishaps in my life have created who I am now, but for the past few months I have been so confused and completely forgot who I truly was. So many people molded me into something else without me even knowing it. I’m finally at peace with what has happened in my life and I fully acknowledge that things won’t stay like this forever. A friend once told me something when I was going through a rough time and it is the most truthful story I have ever heard.
“There was an old man who was about to pass away and he knew that he wasn’t gonna be there for his daughter as she got older and went through life, so he left her something in a wooden box for her to open if a tragic thing happened. One day when his daughter was going through a tragic event she opened the box and inside was a piece of paper that said “It too will pass.” Her father had left her this note with his words of advice for her. That no matter what situation you’re put in everything will eventually pass. =)
Anyways I’m looking forward to this new schoolyear and I’m willing to face whatever situations are awaiting for me. I feel like I can finally breathe and move on.
