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.

be content

Finally, consider another definition of contentment by A.W. Pink. It should speak well to any trial you might be going through in life, singleness or otherwise:

"Contentment, then, is the product of a heart resting in God. It is the soul’s enjoyment of that peace that passes all understanding. It is the outcome of my will being brought into subjection to the Divine will. It is the blessed assurance that God does all things well, and is, even now, making all things work together for my ultimate good.”

read my bible everyday (read all 2 entries…)
1 Samuel 12: 20, 22

Samuel answeredL Even though what you did was wrong, you don’t need to be afraid. But you must always follow the Lord and worship Him with all your heart.
...The Lord has chosen you to be His own people. He will always take care of you so that everyone will know how great He is.

I find comfort in the fact that God will not forsake me even though there are many times that I fail Him, because that’s just who He is. :)

stop being lazy
cleared out

I was able to accomplish three things today:

1) Follow-up on my school documents. Particularly my diploma and transcript of records. I have finally graduated! (Moving on to internship!)

2) Get most of my stuff from the hospital.

3) Clear my things out of my dorm, as I am done with my course and am now ready to move.

Next week, I have an orientation for my internship. I’m still at odds as to whether I should start this May or in June.
