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.

eat more vegtables

I have joined weight watchers,I have always associated veggies as being yucky, but once i started eating more fresh ones from the store , i realized how refreshing and crispy they were. O what i have been missing. I love fresh veggies.Sometimes i forget how good simple things really are.

love myself
I am my own worst critic

OK, I was the kid who got bullied on the playground and even though that was a ridiculously long time ago, and I should have gotten over it… I guess I still haven’t. I have made up my mind to forgive those people, and have said it out loud to myself, but the fact remains, even though I am not mad at them any more I am still emotionally scarred.
As a result: I am always afraid to speak up in social situations because I don’t want to sound stupid, although someone always brings up the point I wanted to say anyways. I carry around tons of anxiety when it comes to social situations . I have limited friends, and at times feel isolated
I am hard on myself,everyone that knows me can see that. I just want to work on being comfy in my own skin.

grow a garden
My first garden

I have recently taken my plants that i have started in the house and transplanted them out in my new garden space. I was lucky to borrow a tiller from my dad.My husband and i spent the better half of an afteroon arranging sticks around the perimeter in hopes to create a fence to deter any bunnies. As long as we do not have any more frost, things should go ok
