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.

get over him
Untitled

i dated this guy for 2 years off and on. then, we went to different huge colleges (lsu and texas a&m). we missed eachother so much. at christmas break, he told me he was going to transfer to my school. i told him not to bc it would be better for both of us. i dont think i knew how in love we were. anyways, a semester later, i had to convince him to come see me and then he took me back. he acted different; he had his guard up but i knew he still liked me. then i dumped him again, and got him back again. well, in the middle of sophomore year he dumped me. 3 months later, he came in town to visit his friends and we hooked up. i asked him if we were ever getting back together and that i would transfer to his school and he said no, and if we got married we’d get divorced. i was heart-broken but didnt show it. then he called me a couple of days later, and i told him i wasnt going there anymore. then i called him about 3 months later to tell him i applied. he dumped the girl he was dating to be with me, but i applied too late and didnt get anything back. he was mad at me along with a little aggravated. we saw eachother a couple of times after that and we acted in love each time. then, i told him i was applying ot his school to make it easier to get into dental school. he told me thats fine, but he wasnt gonna date me long distance before hand. then i said, “will you date me when i get there?” and he said, “im not gonna promise that.” and then i kept calling him and seeing how he felt and he said that i was aggravating him. i bought him a really nice present for his birthday and he didnt care. but he said “if you transferred hear, you KNOW we would end up dating!” IM CONFUSED!!! i think about this guy everyday of my life. i cant decide if i should transfer or not…if i went there, i wouldnt know anyone and it might not work out with he and i, but if i didnt go, i might regret it the rest of my life and lose the guy im in love with because i was scared. the last time we talked, he was mean and i said i wasnt going there, he was selfish, and we should be friends, and he said “stay at your school with your friends, do what is best for you.” it has been 2 months and i miss him desperately and i want to be with him. but i feel like ive been chasing him…its my junior year and i still want to be at his school with him but i dont know if we wants me there…WHAT DO I DO? HELP!!!
