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.

Im tired of settling

stop being so emotional

I wasnt always like this, i used to not cry at all.
I started crying when i first met my 1st boyfriend lol. Ah love can make you do crazy things.
So now weve broken up, it seems like i am overly sensitive about everything. Every little thing that happens triggers something in me. Sigh, i want to just be normal again. The way i used to be.

Pretty neat!

Yeah i think this is worth doing. Sometimes we forget what we have when we are focus on something we don’t.
By doing this list hopefully i am reminded everyday that i am so blessed.
Also sometimes we forget things that we used to love to do.
I am stubborn so I usually need reminding.

Keep a journal (read all 2 entries…)
Oh yeah

Well, ive read a couple of articles that said keeping a journal helps in goal setting. And you will be able to track your achievements and experiences as well as feelings at certain times of life.
Im gonna buy a journal tomorrow or something sturdy anyways to write on i only have small notebooks at the moment :D.

buy a bicycle
Thinking of buying a bike

Ive always liked riding bikes. I live in a city with a lot of uphills. That would be a challenge. I can store the bike in my room. Ride in the morning to avoid too much vehicles. Establish a bike route
