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.

go back to college

June 7 2011- got dismissed : ( going to reapply, hopefully get in again somewhere and do BETTER.

love again (read all 9 entries…)

Ever look back at things you wrote and think “OMG I was soo stupid” or is just me?

I just happened to look through shit today and couldn’t bare to keep any of it, i’m against deleting things but I just HAD to delete some things… gosh I need to fucking keep my feet on earth, like THINGS WILL HAPPEN WHEN THEY HAPPEN.

That’s it.

No sugar coating, no more over analyzing, no more blowing up SMALL STUPID THINGS into HUGE LIFE CHANGING proportions. Fuck that. When it comes to things like this… REALISM FTW.

have a boyfriend

I kinda miss being in a relationship. sick of all the meaningless random sex, I want someone to actually take me out and spend some time with me, fucking talk to me!!! sighh... one day.

fuck them. i’m fucking awesome. THEIR LOSS. I will not feel sorry for myself. No more sex for me until that person is my boyfriend… to avoid “accidents” i will lay off the Vodka at events.

love again (read all 9 entries…)

I know it’s not,so my question is why am I still reading? I honestly don’t know what to think anymore. Maybe that’s a sign that I shouldn’t be thinking. I shouldn’t treat everything as a test that I need to study for. I should just live. Live Live Live. Put down why men marry/love bitches and pick up some LIFE.

I mean it’s nice to read those books for insight/views but I feel like I’m treating it like a book of answers. I look at this book and suddenly feel depressed. Maybe it’s telling me the truth? Maybe I just can’t face the fact that I’m just a joke to him. That my ride is over. Maybe I’ve ruined everything. How about MAYBE I just never had anything to begin with. The moment I started caring about things its when it all fell apart. The moment I decided to put “values” over “fun” is when I started to feel LOST. I need to get my self together. I need to be CARE FREE again. I was there once and i need to find that place again. That solitude. That “Yea I’m still on top of this world” feeling…

Whatever happened to “fuck ordinary” this is me. Take it or leave it. When did “it needs be this at this time in so and so way” fucking take over?

“What the fuck is WRONG WITH HER?”- Chris.

True-er words never spoken.

Fuck this book. I’m just gonna be me. I screen caped alot of screen shots that I was going to analyze but fuck analyzing. Fuck it. I just need to chill. CHILL. I need to relax and find her again. Find that happy girl that didn’t have a care in the world but to be happy and to live for herself and to appreciate what she has and not want what she can not reach. I will find her again. Not at the bottom of a jagerbomb or at the bottom of an empty pill bottle I refuse to get on. Fuck all of that. I’m just gonna find her and be HER again. Be MYSELF. Because somewhere between all the shitty drama I lost her (myself). I just hope it’s not too late… if anything I have nothing to lose anyway….

Nothing to lose, but all to gain… I find solace in that.

15. I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell by Tucker Max

book 15/50

Yea I finally finished this book! I have been slacking on his goal but I am finally getting back on it.

Anyhow this book,made me realize even though maybe not as OBVIOUS or mean as Tucker there are men out there just in it for the hookups to satisfy their low self esteem… it’s true, it exist and I plan to watch out…

I have nothing against random hookups, but I feel that guys should be more straight up and say that so that the girl doesn’t hope for anything… but then again girls shouldn’t be so stupid and know the signs…

Get contact lenses

I lost my third pair of eyeglasses!!! It’s time to get those contact lenses… i have green ones but I think I should go for some prescription ones… i hate losing my glasses : (.

12. Instinct To Heal by David Servan-Schreiber

book 12/50

Wow. What a long read. It was somewhat a mix of a psychology textbook/ self help book. Not only does it show examples of life issues, it also teaches the mechanism inside our brain that causes us to act the way we do. It preaches about coherence and sometimes it best to be passive.

I loved the chapter about BATHEing the heart. Sometimes you really find yourself when you know how to help others.
