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.

Who do I want to be Anyway?

There’s different types of people in this world, who do I want to be? From day to day, it seems like I’m someone different!
I know the personality is more intriciate and complex than I make it seem, but in genearal,

Do I want to be:
-cute and fun and generous
-mysterious, sercretive and withdrawn
-quiet and contemplative
-an activist-a mix of hopeful and cynical
-dark and sarcastic
-angry, angst in general
-the smart girl
-the dumb girl
I vary between these extremes on a daily basis.
It sounds really dumb that I’m actually labeling personality types when no one is really like this, but I have to do something because I don’t like being a different person everyday-the mood swings, etc. Everyone notices the changes I have too and I don’t like them. How can a person be so many things. Maybe I act different around different people. sigh

Stuff that's wrong with me....stuff I can do

I think if I change this stuff, I can be a better person hopefully.

1. say what I feel more often, speak up more—I’m tired of pretending to be happy and giving out fake smiles, fake smiles are painful
2. lose the weight-i’ve never been fat, but now that I am, I’m less confident, sigh
3. Stop the carnal pleasures-pleasures of the flesh
4. Hang out with my friends more
5. Go back to God
6. Don’t procrastinate
6. Take care of myself-my body is a temple
7. Simplify, don’t take on too many activities so I don’t have time for myself or the ones I love
8. Read more, be smart, believe in my self
