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.

Appreciate achievements (rather than muse on missed chances)

I just realized that I have been doing this on and off for the last month. I have decided in this very moment as I look over my goals that this is completed. In the last 2 years I:

Ended a relationship I wasn’t happy in.
Started a relationship with someone who is very special to me.
I took 2 months away from that relationship to teach them and myself that I am worth it.
I graduated college (first to graduate with bachelors from my family).
I moved into a beautiful apartment with my best friend.
I started a job with the hospital I wanted, in the position that I wanted.
I lost 35 lbs, about 3.5 pant sizes.

I have so much more to do in life, but my god I have done a lot already! I have so much to be proud of and to appreciate.

be a vegetarian for a week

Mmm… This might be fun to try.

Let go of regret. (read all 2 entries…)

Deeply trying to work on this one yet struggling to do so. I stole candy from a candy store when I was a much much younger self (and I’m pretty sure the owner new about it but never said anything to me) and I have some extreme guilt about it.

I don’t know how to change that.

pass the NCLEX on the first try (read all 3 entries…)

4 years of University and all it took was 75 questions during 1 hour to determine that I can hold my own as a nurse.

I spent the majority of 3 days convinced that I failed the exam. Hellz no!!! I passed!!!!

I officially did it! I ran a whole mile today without stopping. 11 minutes (which isn’t a very good time, but it’s something).

Thank you, Facebook!

This past year...

I nap when I need to nap. I work as little as I can while being the full time student that I am. I set goals for my day that are attainable. I work out multiple times a week. I take my vitamins religiously. I do my homework before it is due and do not procrastinate! This semester, my grades were much better. It was tough, but I got through it.

believe that I am beautiful and sexy even though I may not be the thinnest thing on the planet
Love of my life...

Thanks to my wonderful boyfriend I have! He makes me feel like a beautiful woman and I believe that I am.

This goal has been on my list for years. I think it is finally time to remove it and specify my goal a little. I am losing weight. In fact, I’ve lost about 25lbs. Lets keep it rolling!

sucks that the 100th had to involve someone cheating on me…. hmmm… I don’t want this anymore.

open up to him... no holding back (read all 2 entries…)
he cheated on me twice...

Get a tattoo (read all 2 entries…)

I just got my first tattoo on my back. I got the Scorpio sign. So many people asked me why I what I did. Beyond the fact that I do believe in astrology, I am the exact definition of a Scorpio. I thought about it for over a year so I just went with it. No regrets on this one… yet! ;)

always tell people how much they mean to me (read all 2 entries…)

It’s an on-going thing…
