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.

I want to enter bio-pharmacuticals (read all 4 entries…)

So I got an offer with a company in NH. It is temp. but a step forward. I need to go for a drug test and fill out paper work. Things are going great…..I’m pretty much staying positive!

I did call the recruiter and he stated he would call me back with a time, but I did not hear back from him. I will follow up Friday as I need to go give my two weeks and they want me training July 25th!

Play with my dog Karma more
Sunday 6-19-11

Took Karma out to run around and play. She had a lot of fun and after she hung out at my soft-ball game. I got sunburned and she chilled and was a good pup!

So word yet

Company I really want to work for is a no go. I have to call and see what they are looking for and where I can get better.

Have a phone interview Thursday so things may go good there

be more patient
The time is now

I always jump into things it seems and not think of the out come. I get impatient and I remember I use to tell a former girlfriend this.

I saw where she went and it seems that is where I was heading.

I am very aware of who I am and my flaws and what I need to fix.

Been doing it lately and it is great

stop being lazy

Woke up this morning and looked for some jobs. Sent my resume and answered some questionares for a company. My out look on life has been very good this week.

Yes I get down, Yes I think about my ex, but moving on and keeping busy is a must.

I need to be patient, but it is hard.

The Best is yet to come!

be happy

Was a good time. Hanging with some new people who listen and don’t judge. Getting back to where I want to be….more to come

meet more people

I signed up for Softball on Sundays. Today our team was more social then in past…..I made some nice plays and we all went to a local bar to celebrate. I got invited back to a cook out and met some other people. Was a good day!

Got my resume out to some places along with the cover letter. Now it is time to be patient. I am hoping to hear back from them and will do whatever it takes.

Need to stay positive!

be self-confident again

I feel the same. I lost a girl I fell for and lost my self-confidence. I was either up or down. I had some serious life altering stuff happen in November 2010 then lost my grandmother in January two weeks after meeting this beautiful woman. In March I lost my job after a girl that I supervises claimed a picture I drew was inappropriate, it was a Leprachaun for a kiss me I’m irish contest and I put the lips on the butt. No one in management ever saw this and they took her word and never asked me. I now have a lower paying job I travel more too. In May my g/f broke up with me because of whatever she wasnt into it or never had the feelings I had. Says she wants to be my friend though?

I want to not be an emotional wreck or up and down and handle my emotions like I use too.
