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.

tone up

I’ve been contemplating doing Pilates for a while now..but haven’t come around to doing so. I just get annoyed at the extra fat I have around my hips and thighs and stomach! I think Pilates is meant to be because I keep seeing it everywhere and I woke up at 3am to an infomercial for Winsor Pilates and I was so tempted just to buy the dvd set then and there. I will do this, it’s my only hope!!!

go to New York (read all 2 entries…)

I entered a competition to win a trip to New shows how willing I am. WISH ME LUCK :D

get him back
My long story ...

My bf of 1 year broke up with me last Saturday after we couldn’t come to an agreement on anything and were constantly arguing. It came as a real shock to me. I was going to try and move on and get over him, but I didn’t want to give up on him because I knew we had something special. The next 3 days after that were strange, because i was still going over his house because he wanted to watch dvds or just hang kissing, no affection, not even hugging. Hardly even speaking!

So yesterday, I whipped out a book I hadn’t read for a while called “He’s just not that into you” (great book!) and read the chapter on “He’s not into you if he’s breaking up with you”. It basically stated that if an ex really wants to be with u, he would and by giving them space after a break up, it only makes them realise their stupid mistake and come back or not, so either way you’ll see how much you actually meant to them. I then made the decision not to see him and I told him that I didn’t think I was going to go over for a while and explained that it would be wise not to speak at this point in time because it’s too soon and too painful. That must have been a whack in the head for him, because he immediately started questioning me and asking why we couldn’t hang out anymore and then said he wanted to talk about what went wrong.

I agreed to go to his house and believe me, if we didn’t work out it would have been the last straw. We had a very long talk, about it, and realised that our problem was communicating. It was a big relief to hear him tell me how he felt and for me to tell him how I felt. We got back together and promised each other that we would make it work and agreed to make a time to let out our feelings at least once a week. Honestly, the best thing to do is to make them miss you, or in my case, tell them that you’re cutting all ties and just see what they do. If they truly love you, they’ll want to save the relationship. It’s scary, but so worth it!!!
