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.

Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me

I’ve been dating a great guy for a few months now and we’re completely inseparable. The other day he asked me if I was happy dating him and for the first time, I gave an honest answer to that question. Yes, more than I have been in a long time. We annoy the shit out of each other, he pushes my buttons and I “bully” him, haha. All in all, I’m having a fantastic time with him and think this could go somewhere. If it doesn’t, I’ll be sad because he’s a great guy but he’s helped me open up so much that I know it’s ok to do so now and feel comfortable being my goofy self. It’s a nice change from hiding my emotions and reminicsing on old loves. I really hope that everyone will have this feeling at one point in their lives. It’s great to wake up in the morning next to someone you love spending time with. And who’s drooling on themselves…

I went from playing no games at all to playing Half Life 2, NFS Carbon and Underground, CoD 1 (beaten in a day…) and 4 (only on my boyfriend’s computer because his graphics are fantastic) and oldschool stuff like Chip’s Challenge, Pacman and Tetris. I need a job…
