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.

wear a bikini
I wanna wear one by next summer :)

Anyone can wear a bikini, but I would rather wear one and look good in it. I’ve been trying to lose some weight for a while. Maybe this will motivate me more in the right direction :)

make more friends
Years of trying to be invisible, now I want to be seen

It was easy making friends when I was younger. Now, it seems harder. I guess I need to open up more and be myself. I think I have a problem trusting people. Also, I don’t like rejection at all, so I just reserved and try to look busy so people will not notice me. Sometimes I think people dislike me before they even know me. And people I know a little I may not say hi or whatever, because I don’t think I know them well enough….It’s complicated…. I’m trapped in a box, and don’t know how to get out. I have some close friends, but they are not at school with me or they have there own things to do. Sorry for the novel, but it’s just seems hard sometimes! Thanks for reading :)

graduate from college

I filled out my intent to graduate form last week! So, I should be outta here by May 2009. Can’t wait! Go Psychology Majors!!!!
