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.

Give up chocolate for Lent

I swear to god im addicted to chocolate. i eat mass quantities per day.

last year i went all out for lent and gave up chocolate for long a 40 days and long 40 nights.

This year i’m doing it too, except i’m allowing myself the “sunday rule” in which youre allowed to break lent on sundays. Its easier this way (considering the local ice cream place just opened up and i recieved all of my 6 boxes of girlscout cookies) but its still difficult nonetheless. i’ve probably missed out on over 50 pound of chocolate this year because of lent. (not counting last year)

i daydream in chocolate. does anyone else constantly think about eating choclate and crave it incessantly??

Kiss in the rain

It actually happened in the snow, but i figured that counted, too. it was our first kiss together on our first date and i (regretfully) pulled away at first. It was romantic because he caught me off gaurd on our walk from the resaurant to my car.
