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.

get the tattoo on my wrist when I've been vegan for 8 months (read all 4 entries…)

ive been vegan since january now. but not consequently. i had little non-vegan eating attacks. and im not going to overlook those.

that’s why im going to start tomorrow, 18.04.12, to continue eating vegan. but only vegan. and im going to update regularly now on here =)

find a friend who i really have a connection to, my soulmate

my best friend is my soulmate.
i know her almost all my life, but it took me that long to finally realize it.
lately i’ve been thinking a lot about love, friendship, family.
my friends are my family. those are the people where i can be myself around. i honestly dont know what i would do without them, especially my best friend.
my “real” family aren’t people i feel comfortable around. i neither have a relationship nor a connection with my parents. they are just my “producers”. nothing else connects us. they are making me mentally ill and im so glad that im going to move out within this month.
everythings going to change from that moment on. !
im going to get better and im going to get it right!
im not only having the will to do it, but also my beautiful best friend and my boyfriend, who are and will be there for me.
im very sad, that i have to leave my beloved dog behind. but she’s going to live with my grandparents and they love her so much, that i will be okay with it. cause i know that robyn will have it better there, than where i live. and it’s not like we’re never going to see each other.

my new life starts. away from those people that contaminate my spirit. just 2 more weeks to endure !!!

get an industrial piercing (read all 2 entries…)

so i finally went to this piercing and tattoo studio called “house of pain” (hahhaha ;]) and was ready for my industrial piercing. when the piercer told me that my ear wasn’t suitable for an industrial, it didn’t really surprise me, since the other studio already told me that it isn’t. so i spontaneously decided to get a helix forward and im veeeery content with the outcome :D

that’s how mine looks like too ;)

See all entries ...
