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.

Worry less.
still there

I wrote this a year ago that it was concerning me and today I have had plenty of opportunities over the year to have those “Just live in the moment.” practice. i do worry less but my core issue is affording my bills. I think the solution to that might be a change of job. You know, where your schedule is constant and not a flux schedule where you don’t know how much money you’ll have on payday. I think it’s time to go type that resume :)

Stop caring what other people think of me
Getting the hang of it

A year ago I wrote that I had too many worries. Update because ppl love updates! :) Is I’m doing pretty good! How liberating. In a figure of speech I do fall into a hole sometimes but that’s bound to happen on the path to reprogram your thinking process.

get a rook piercing
it hurt it bled but it looks beautiful

It f’n hurt. I won’t lie to you. But you see it and you squee.

A lot of my deal is my ear is so small. I have issues cleaning it decently and it got reinfected. I’m trying q tips and pray I don’t have to remove it to save my sanity. Because when it’s inflamed you can’t sleep on the side it’s on-comfortably that is.
