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.

stop staying up till 7am.
sorta progress...

I go to sleep at about 4:00 am now. I still want to go to sleep earlier, because I like to be awake longer when it’s light out.
I’m going to bed now.

stop criticizing myself
Roller Coaster.

It’s annoying, some days I absolutely love myself, some days I think about killing myself (but I never ever would). Today I was normal though. I thought I was average, haha. It makes me feel like crap when I look in the mirror and feel like punching the girl I see. Sometimes I do. I don’t see myself in the mirror. Instead I see a girl with horrible body acne, fat where it should never be, a face as oily and spotty as a pizza, teeth like a jack ‘o lantern… I know who I wish I was, and I’ve never seen her in that mirror.
I want to stop hating the girl in the mirror, and if that means changing her, I’ll do it.

Lose 30 pounds
lost 30(ish) pounds

I wrote about this in my “get skinny” entry. But it was only 25 pounds. If anyone needs help, I guess I can help.

See all entries ...
