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.

receive a letter from Hogwarts apologizing for the late owl but informing me that i am actually a wizard.

i thought this was just too great not to add!

overcome my shyness
social anxiety?

i hate being in the company of too many people. even if i know them all. once there are more than 4 – 5 people, i find myself unable to speak, and really self-concious. school is a nightmare. i turn red when i raise my hand in class. party’s are a nightmare. wayyyy too many people, and their usually all really cool people. i just wish i could love myself the way everyone else loves themselves. also my boyfriends a really social guy and i feel like my paranoia is taking a serious toll on him as well. :( im sorry baby.

like myself
i hate myself

well, its true. i think im fat, ugly, stupid and have a terrible personality. i dont know why anyone would want to be friends with me. actually, i barely have any friends. ha, maybe im on to something. anyway, i believe that i need to like myself to enjoy life. i feel like i spend all my time with someone i really hate. but how can i change that when that person is myself?
