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.

wow...it's been a long time

Since the last time I was here, a lot has changed in my life!! You see, the ex that I spoke of in my past entries is no longer my ex. He as of two months ago, is my husband! I am so happy now and I can finally move on because like the old saying goes “if you love something, set it free. If it’s yours it’ll come back”. If its meant to be…LOVE will find a way!!

YAY!

I know it’s been a bit since I’ve been here, but I’m proud to say that this goal has been occomplished! I finally quit my job at the insurance company and held a very brief position at the local county jail. But as of right now I’m exactly where I want to be. I am currently employed a a local dermatology office. I started out in the front office as reception, when I approached one of the doctors about giving me an opportunity to grow within the company as a medical assistant. He said YES!!! I cannot be more happier…I love my job, I love my patients, I love my boss and I love my co-workers! Next Month will be my 2 year anniversary there!! :o)

Distraught

I received a few text messages last night. They were from him. He was on his best friends cell phone.

The first one said: “Just wanted to say bye”
Second one: “Moving”
Third one: “Can you call me now?”

That was at 12:30 am last night, I didn’t get the messages until 8:30 this morning. I’m really upset, I know I’m gonna be distracted all day today.

I texted messaged back just now “Tell him I love him and I’m gonna miss him.” Maybe this is what I need to be ok with moving on.

Still Stuck

It’s days like this that I really loathe my job! Update later….

I should really take Bill Cosby’s Advice:

“I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.”
- Bill Cosby



Save money
Un-expected Set Backs!

Well, I really thought I was gonna achieve this goal and quickly…but my room mate dropped the bomb yesterday that she was quitting her job! Not that this has any bearing on me saving money, but I am now so stressed out, that my saving money goal is now being put on the back burner!

Still Not OK

I’ve been thinking about him a lot lately. I often find myself going to his personal website and reading then reminiscing about the past. I dream of him often…I’m still not ok with moving on.

Cool, Fun Goal!

So I was looking around 43 things and I came across someone with this goal. I was thinking how cool it would be to participate, make new friends and collect some interesting postcards along the way. I also stumbled across someone mentioning postcrossing.com, so I signed up! If you would like to help me with this goal email me and I’ll reply with my address.
