i dont know what to think about this
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.

I honestly don’t know how it happened. I found myself in love with my best friend, and for a while he didn’t know if he loved me in the same way. I decided all I could do was be myself and if he didn’t love me than it wasn’t meant to be. We broke up one night at 2 in the morning. I thought my life was over. At 8 am he texted me saying he had made a mistake. When you can’t go 6 hours without someone in your life I think that is when you definitely know you love them. I had to be willing to let go for him to realize what he truly felt. Love isn’t all fun and games. But I know I love him, and I’m pretty damn sure he loves me back.
I am planning on buying a used Nikon D500 over the summer!!! Yay me. Just have to get the money now.
Turns out he loves me too. Happier than ever.
I can do it with someone spotting me, now I just have to do it on my own.
Went to see Anberlin on Saturday night with my boyfriend and several other good friends. Pretty awesome :)
Almost done. At midnight tonight I will have met my goal. 44 days of no caffeine or soda.
