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.

I let my life rule me...

... for a while i let my life rule over me. I was a slave to school. I lost touch with friends, was frustraited and stressed over the next deadline, and forgot all the fun things I used to do.
Well, enough is enough. Since January 1st, i can say I have committed to atleast one goal, and thats to get back in my friends lives and vice versa. We have hung out a good amount of times and things are getting back to normal again, in that aspect. School is still important to me, but so are they. And college is only four years (well, only 1.5 years left!) so I have to make the most of it bc when its all said and done, getting an A in a class and having no friends or fun will mean nothing compared to getting a C and having the time of my life!

Just need to find that happy medium.

Next on the list:
keep in touch with friends/ Go out more.
Manage my time with my BF.
Get active, get a hobby, Go to events, Travel.
Find Peace.

Grow in my faith (read all 2 entries…)
Praise God

... For he has provided for me once again. My money was dwindling FAST and i had many bills coming up within the next week. Long story short, i randomly looked at my bank account summery, which I never do and noticed a payment that I dont remember. Turns out, ive been paying for MSN since June 2005, even after I called to cancell it. So, MSN is crediting me $350 strait to my bank account. How awesome is that? How awesome is God?

The Lord has a way of providing things...

... when you really need it. That is becoming more apparent to me.

I was running low on funds (as always) and needed to refill my medication which cost $60. It was the end of the semester and I sold back my books and got…exactly $60.

And now, a month later, when Im finding it hard to pay bills (my most recent one being $30) I got a babysitting gig through work for tonight. I showed up and hung out for an hour while the dad tried to get himself together when It turns out he couldnt leave after all. Even after I declined, he insisted on paying me. And when I got in my car and counted it… it was $30…just in time.

I think the Lord is just trying to tell me that he hears my prayers and for as long as I remain faithful, he will provide for me.

The Lord works in Mysterious ways.
