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.

celebrate my benign schizophrenia
Yeah, man.

I can adapt to situations madcrazy fast, like how that guy said. =points down=

And I can be a chameleon and adapt to people’s personalities so that that I can keep the peace! xD Lol.

Though I do admit, the constant voice-like thoughts do get annoying with their negativity. . . but hey, that’s life.

let go of bitterness
I want to break free.

I am trapped by the bitterness, resentment, hurt, and grudges that I’ve built up and bottled up inside myself during my life. Most of it stems from my parents and their unintentional emotional (and therefore psychological) abuse. The other ever-growing part of it is my own dark and self-abusive thoughts drilling how not good enough I am to myself.

I want to be able to break free from this hellish curse, this entrapment in my mind. It’s swallowing up my life, and I need it to stop or else I’ll die. . . literally.

I still have hope that one day I’ll be able to break free. I think that that day may be getting closer and closer because I have been having more and more bouts of depression and anxiety / panic attacks, and the closer to ‘home’ I get, the more of a reaction from myself I get.

(I think I may have to have a breakdown to fix myself, but I’m so afraid of letting go. . . Sighs.)

Fall in love
I have too much love.

I fall in like sometimes instantly, and fall in love as soon as after a few days. I have known many loves, all of which were one-sided with my love being far stronger and over-powering than theirs.

One thing I learned is that, like many people’ve said, it is extremely hard to attain the mutual love status. I have yet to do this. This is what I consider to be true love.

I’ve never known this love, and now I both wish it and resent it. I resent not being able to find it, but a glimmer of hope still exists.

So yeah. . . we’ll see what happens.
