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.

make the most of it when i go to Nashville, TN (read all 2 entries…)

was a blast. i didnt actually get to go into the city because we were so busy with wedding stuff, but i did meet some new people and me and my cousin had lots of fun. i basically told myself that i wouldnt have any negative thoughts on the trip and everything went so smoothly because of it. i cant wait to go back to school this weekend and to try and apply that state of mind to meeting new people and doing things up at eastern.

learn to control my emotions
think instead of act

i tend to be an emotional person and i think a lot of situations would have ended much better in the past if i would have took time out to think before i acted out on what i felt. i still struggle with this alot and its something that im working on on a daily basis.

be more outgoing
hiding in my corner

im not very outgoing. actually im more of a hermit, siting in the house all day lol. i really want to meet more people and actually live my life. i hate when i feel like i want to say something to someone but im just to shy or nice to. i want to be able to walk up to anyone and start up a conversation.
