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.

become straight-edge (read all 3 entries…)
not even over day 1 yet....

and im already desperate for a drink… :(

become straight-edge (read all 3 entries…)
day 1

going good…. havnt smoked any cigs, even though i have a full packet.
most likely because i have a cold, but also, definately also because i just dont want to.
it IS going to be hard, not because i dont really want it, but i am an addict. not just to the cigs but to anything i can be really, coke, alcohol, caffeine, love, everything.
but i do not want to be that person anymore!!! so im just going to stick right on it.
everyone says ‘it would be easy if you really wanted to do it’ but thats such shit.
listen to me, i DO NOT WANT TO BE ADDICTED ANYMORE i mean it, i really mean it.
and its writing these little pep blogs that helps me feel positive about it and not do it.
i have a bottle of wine in the fridge and a can of beer and half a bottle of vodka. i also have a full packet of cigarettes. but i dont want to get rid of these things. NOT because im anticipating a failure, because right now i feel really strong. (ho knows what the next minute will bring…) but because if i know i have them close to hand, it stops that extra little panicky desperation which is what builds and the avalanches
if i want it, its there. but i dont want it. so i dont need to worry or think about it.
psycho samatic, (or whatever the phrase is!) you see?
i am going to the pub tonight with my house mate for a social type of thingy, and im just going to drink coke.
i really hope this works, i do not want to be writing an entry tommorrow saying ‘oops i fucked up’
wish me luck…

i spoke to my friend jamie yesterday, she is sxe.
and she said her secret is treating her body as though she were pregnant… which is a really really great way of looking at it. because if you were pregnant you wouldnt dream of doing anything to harm your child. so why would you harm yourself??
and i have been pregnant, and the only thing i could think of was how to preserve that little life inside me and how to protect it as best i could using my body as its little protective bubble.
so i remember that feeling, maybe i have a good chance of looking after this body and treating myself correctly.
and being kind to myself.
i dont deserve to wreck my life and my body through misuse and abuse.

im a bit scared though.

go to Hawaii
hawaii and donuts

whats a hawaiian donut? and is it good? is it as good as hawaii itself?
i want to go there. more than anyone else here!!!
and im going to take someone special to me, who i know wants to go too <3
