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.

get over Nigel totally (read all 4 entries…)

he and his girlfriend aren’t toghether anymore. He wants me to be in a relationship with him a serious one but i have a problem. I like this other dude who is everything i have ever wanted and is really cool. Now they want me to choose. I nearly made out with Nigel he leaned in twice but i backed away i wanted to make sure that us was what he wanted of course he said yes and of course i believe him.
Now all that is left for me to do is choose. I am really into this new guy but nigel an i have history and i love him. Now am stuck…this sucks. Does anyone have any advice for me??please i need some advice someone help me is there anyone outthere? or am i just talking to myself when i write? maybe am crazy begging for help on the internet where no one knows me…...oh well but if anyone can offer some help preferably before this week is up then thank you for your help.
Just for the record we didn’t kiss but a part of me really wanted to. nigel and i have never really been an official couple everytime we try to get together we back off because someone else wants what we want. we are so much a like. We both have loved each other for 5 years and he says am the only thing keeping him back from moving away to a different country. But i don’t want to hurt this other guy because a part of me has grown to lve him. He is one of my closest friends. At this moment i am stumpted nevertheless i know i love Nigel but i also love the other guy.

He asked me to prom and i said….......yes. My heart was louder than my head and in the panick i answered his question with a yes. Am having second thoughts about it though. He is still with his girlfriend and the only reason why he asked me is because the little girl isn’t allowed to leave her house at night time. Anyways how you make your bed you lie in it. Am such an f*ing loser, here i am not wanting to be second best and i am right back where i started. someone help me please!!! am confused.
