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.

work harder

people say “work hard u’ll succeed” or “work hard play hard” but lately an acquaintance they i interact with has work hard at 16, able to do residency for med students yes i said 16 and now he’s back at community college deciding to concentrate (for example wanting to do surgury specializing in the heart) so this is b**t and also my friend staying at undergraduate one more year when she’s already finished for her bf and ended up breaking up, and she’s now really happy and productive in her life, so this work hard thing is just really not applied well

abt this fiu girl

so my dad rly rly looks up to this person named “li peng” . In fact during my bday party, he invited li peng and his two friends and his gf to my party. my dad was flaunthing my house and other stuff to him. His gf said this remark of our chinese being “not good enough and my sis was angry (mostly offended though). I felt kinda offended. But truly if I look at it, Im just as a sinner as this woman the girlfriend, Im very judgemental, I let people down, I’ve digusted people, I’ve been hideous. I cringe at people and I do more than what is mentioned. Plus I don’t mind being misunderstood. So I start feeling sympathy towards this li peng gf and I actually have empathy towards her. That witch turns into oh “poor woman” and reminder of a blessings start occuring and I can slowly seep away from the insecure, jealousy that I have to li peng’s gf
