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.

train my puppy (read all 2 entries…)
potty training

well he just went poop on his potty matt. Unfortubately, I’m eating and trying not to smell it but hard not to breath out of your nose when you’re chewing…..

train my puppy (read all 2 entries…)
he's 9 weeks old

and not quite potty trained. He gets pretty mouthy and tries to eat you. He also cries most the night because he doesn’t like sleeping alone in his kennel. I think I mught take him to puppy socialization classes once he gets all of his shots. Just need to teach him manners and discipline now. Trying to be the dog whisperer, but not quite mastering the techniques….

lose 60 pounds so Matt will buy me a puppy (read all 3 entries…)
I think I'm actually gaining weight

I know how to lose weight. Just my self control is minimal.I see chocolate, I eat it and so on.

The good thing is that I made a deal with Matt that he can’t buy anymore fish until he loses 60 pounds. So hopefully the motivation will set in. I think 60 pounds is too big of a goal, it seems impossible but that’s what he set it at. Hopeing he breaks his bet and we can reformat the bet to be more reasonable. For instance, whoever loses 10 pounds first doesn’t have to do laundry for a month and so on. We’ll see….

go to the gym at least once a week with kim
i've been doing pretty good

but need to go more then once a week…

buy a new snake tank (read all 2 entries…)
moved him into 70 gallon aquarium

My boyfriend updated his salt water aquarium to a 90 gallon and donated his 70 gallon to Zeus. We got this clay and built a small tunnel system with it which Zeus LOVES. He hardly comes out anymore. He seems very happy. I look forward to slowly building it uup to make it the most awesome snake tank EVER!

I made a deal

with my boyfriend thatif I lose 60 pounds he has to buy me a puppy. I weighed myself this morning and let him see. How embarassing. I really want a puppy so I figured it would be good motivation for me to lose weight. We’ll see how it goes.

Today I bought a footlong subway sandwhich with plans to eat half now and half for dinner, but then I decided I was still hungry after eating the first half and then justified it will probably be soggy by dinner time. So I ate the whole thing :( Now I feel full and not content, but dissapointed in myself. Note to self no more footlong subs

plant a potted mandarin tree on my back patio (read all 2 entries…)
Went tree browsing

Looked at some trees at home depot. The guy there said they don’t grow well in pots, but their were instructions on the tag on how to grow them in pots. We figured we’d wait awhile and maybe browse around and do more research first.

realize I don't need a man to be complete (read all 2 entries…)
I have a man

and he doesn’t “complete me”. He makes me happy and he’s great. But I think realizing that you don’t “need” a man in your life is the first step you need to take before finding one to shar eyour life with.

move out of Fairfield
Moving to Pleasant Hill this weekend!

So excited!
