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.

think hard on what college I want to go to for my major.
Elementary School Teacher!

Since I have interests in psychology,philosophy, working with children and english Im planning to become an elementary school teacher. To become a teacher-for whatever grade you wish to persue specifically, you must have taken some classes in both psychology and philosophy, as well as child development classes that show you how to get along and interact accordingly with your students. Im quite excited with this newfound ambition that I want to persue now. It was ironic because I had taken both psychology and philosophy classes in the past and having this way to combine the two with taking care of children is such an amazing blessing that I have cherished to have found. :) I am working hard toward my goal to become a teacher!

Have a steady relationship (read all 2 entries…)
Yay! d like to admit it or not... :/ hehe xD

Its been awhile since Ive checked up on 43 things. Since that time I’ve- surprisingly gotten into a relationship and with a pretty awesome and amazing guy who really digs me. :) Im happy and fortunate to have found a person Im compatible with and who I enjoy their company equally as they do mine. He’s adorable and sweet. While, on the other hand, Im blunt and sarcastic. It works and …yup many a time I have wanted to run away or break this relationship we have-just because of the person that I am..The anxiousness with commitment and relationships..etc.. But Ive stuck through it because I Do want this to work and want to get through my fear of commitment. We became official on my birthday and now we are still going strong. Although its a long distance relationship-haha great right? Especially for me the commitment anxious one, but surprisingly that has helped a lot in my case to keep the relationship going on as long as it has. Sometimes you need time alone from the ones you love to contemplate and think-whether it be for a short time to a long while- time is a necessity that cannot be taken lightly dealing with matters of the heart.

associate with the right ppl (read all 3 entries…)
hmm :/

sadly I miss my x bf and best friend. I find myself remembering him randomly during my days—even when Im with my hubbie ..and cant help but become depressed just at the thought of him. When we had broken up, I was more in denial than anything.. I partied and tried various other things to get my mind off it. But slowly and surley..when I wasnt living the fast lane, I’d turn on the tv and= there was a reminder of him. A movie he enjoyed. When I surfed the web and got on my chatline, ironically there was an advertisement on my wall that was one of the superheros which he was really into… I couldnt get away from it. It was sad.. now I will randomly piece together events from my life, unconsciously and place them in a way that reminds me of him. Just everything and anything. I randomly find myself crying at the thought of him-what we could have been.. I keep on telling myself that this keeps happening because we just got along so well. We were always joking around…. but in reality, I think I might not want to see the bigger picture that this issue carries. I believe that issue is=== Even though I am with someone now, Im scared of being alone. Now my x and I had always hung out constantly, after school, the days at school when we didnt see each other and so forth. I just miss that companionship we had as friends..not so much the romantic jazz. XD I have my hubbie and Im happy with him. :) I just miss being close to another person-a good friend and buddie of mine to which we’d hang out every other day, and so forth just because we enjoyed the other person’s company. :) :/ I hate admitting anything to myself like this, let alone to anyone else…. This too is hard for me to do.
