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.

fall out of love (read all 2 entries…)
U have 2 convince urself ur thru ...

I thought this person was my life. i wanted 2 give them the world but as time passed someone else came into play and not only did they love me, they loved me first. Time continued 2 pass by and i wanted the one i was in love wit less and less until one day i didnt want them at all, true love will never cease but it can fade. also remember that love isnt a one way street, if they cant love u like u love them, itz not gonna work. and dont try 2 convince yourself that you have enough love for the both of you because honestly and truly you’ll get 2 times da heartbreak. if anyone wantz 2 talk or needz help im on aim Ceez218, and msn c.keteku

get over the death of a loved one
this past summer...

i lost two cousins over some bullshyt. the day before their funeral i was delousional. i refused to believe that they were gone. i called my older cousin’s cell phone 12 times hoping that maybe the funeral was just a bad dream and he was still alive and that his little brother would run out and say we tricked you! we’re fine stop crying. but the truth finally hit me at the burial. i broke down crying with my uncle. but you know what? in the end it gets easier because death iz easy, dying is the hard part. to see some body die is difficult because you’re watching life slip away from them and that sticks in your mind and slowly erases goodtimes. after a death all you have to do is remember the goodtimes and they’ll always be with you.
