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.

date a football player

him being a football player had little to do with it.
The thing with these guys, if theyre serious about the sport, is that it is their first love. Their only love.

therefor, ladies, dont chase em. If he is gaga over you and chasing you down the street, ok maybe. But still, ask him if he’s for real, if he’s not just having a moment of weakness by forgetting the ball.

Cause being told “sorry, I gotta play football, I cant do this” hurttss!!

look good, feel good

I never think I look good, until months later, when I look at the pictures, and I almost look like someone else, THEN I say to myself “damn im hot! Im not half as bad as I thought!”
But always, always, in the moment i feel fat and ugly. It’s got to stop.

I want to feel good, look good, and know it!! I want to be grateful for my inner joy and peace and grateful for my beautiful body!

look up words i don't know

I think it’s so so cool when I’m with someone and they hear/read a word they dont know and then look it up. Or hear about a person or place they dont know and look it up.

i figure i can be this cool, too!!
from now on, if there’s a word I dont know and i have a dictionary or computer close… ITS BEING LOOKED UP!!!

See all entries ...
