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.

stop being so jealous
jealous of my boyfriend with my friend

i hate this feeling….i am jealous that my boyfriend likes my friend. i know he thinks she is hot everyone does. i cant even put her down to some stupid bimbo because i know her and she is a lovely girl……......i dont know what to do. i dont want to lose my friendship but honestly i am threatened that he is thinking that he got the wrong girl…..and i feel like i cant measure up. i dont know if we are meant to be together anymore. its annoying because i hate thinking that hes thinking about her. she loves the attention so is a bit more out there and more confident with talking to my boyfriend. i know she doesnt like him at all in that way (shes very pretty) but she still does the flirty eye look at him. its like they are a couple and im in the background. like what the fuck! whats wrong with me?! i cant even tell him how i feel cause i know he will brush it off. i cant tell anyone else cause they will think im some jealous bitch about everyone…but i swear its only her and him that i get jealous over!



control my jealousy
why am i jealous over my boyfriend talking ot my friend?

ive only just realised that i am jealous but its a different kind of jealous its the kind where i start to think…..if he had more confidence he would be with her.

last party we went to was with my friend and i have to admitt i was jealous of him talking to my drop dead stunning single friend half the night. even if i was right there next to him. i felt like i was in the background! like i was watching them play fight and joke around! when he had something to say he would say ‘(her name), listen to this’.....

why do i feel like this? i am not as hot as her and she has everything going for her, and i cant really say a bad word about her because i know she is a beautiful person inside and out and that just makes me feel worse. i cant even say well at least its only the looks. Thats not to say that i dont get attention either from guys, im just a more reserved type and if a guy doesnt seem interested in me, i wont bother chasing at all.

i was angry at him last night and since the party and i cant help but feel this way. all yesterday i hardly heard from him and when i told him i missed him in a msg i didnt even get a reply!
like WTF now that i am writing this i know i am better. i feel better already. Jealousy is not something you can really talk about because i know he even thinks my best friend is hotter than me (and he is always telling me i should dye my hair blonde- (her hair color).

i am me….i usually dont put myself down so much so why am i doing it now? i am better than this!
i know he would never cheat thats not why i am jealous…i am jealous of the thoughts he is probarly having that he isnt with ‘the best for him’.

Become Financially Independent (read all 5 entries…)
the shopaholic becomes a smarter shopper

arrhhhhhh i have no money! im sick of asking my parents for money! im currently studying but am finding it really hard to save. i want to socialize but these days to do that it costs heaps! i have to cut down on little things first and if that doesnt work i will cut down on social life. i only really go out ‘out’ once a week….the rest of the time is with families or ‘catching’ up with friends for coffees or dinner (also expensive…but what am i to do?)..im gonna cut down on little things first
1. stop buying bottled water
2. take lunch to uni
3. ????? what else i havent bought clothes for 1 month!
oh yeh
4. stop drinking when i go out (also good plan for my anti ageing scheme)
5. exercise (makes me happy…less likely to buy when i feel down as i will have less down moments…plus more likely to look better therefore less money on trying to look good)
it all starts here. the shopaholic becomes a smarter shopper

become better at small-talk (read all 2 entries…)
happy = happy conversations

im getting there. for a while i attempted the not complaining about anything method to appear more likeable…this works to a degree. i still need to have a personality! i need an opinion. i tend to ask alot of questions about the other person as well. i just go with the flow most times now. when i was younger i never had a problem but over the last couple of years i started to worry….now i realized who i am again and my self esteem is back up. i think that makes a huge difference. i am no longer pretending to be happy. i am happy…and its all thanks to positive attitude and exercise….its not like i have had any major life changes in the past 12 months. i have just realised how to be happy.
