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.

Forgive my cousin (read all 2 entries…)

I guess.. it’s not such a big thing now. We’ve started talking again now that my dad is no longer with us. I don’t know, it just seems like such a little thing now.

attend a wwe event

I’ve been to three, and I had so much fun each time. Even though I haven’t been as into WWE lately, I would definetly go again to an event if the opportunity comes.

Forgive my cousin (read all 2 entries…)
And as much as I want to, I can't.

One of my coolest cousins did something I couldn’t imagine her doing. She helped my dad relapse on weed. And then lied about it. Now I am so upset with her I don’t talk to her, I refuse to. She let my dad give into his cravings, the natural symptom of withdrawel. He had quit, he had stopped completly for over 6 months. He even was caught saying many times that he was glad he stopped, didn’t need it anymore. Yet, in one of his lowest points, his weakest point to giving in, she let him have it. I then realized how low she was. She’s contantly drinkings/smoking around her kids, and around anyone who will tolerate her. She got lonley in the village of the booze and joints and apparently decided to bring back my dad. My dad has been smoking weed since I’ve been born, this was the only time I know of him quitting. And I was so happy and so proud, now I am angry, dissapointed, and embarrassed of him. I told my aunt about her giving him some weed one day and my aunt confronted her, since she is her mother. She lied about it. She took complete innocence. Now, this makes me want to kick her ass all around the damn room. I no longer talk to her anymore and since news travels fast around this family, I’m sure she knows why I never go out drinking with her and her low friends, I have actually quit drinking (I’ve decided to wait until I was 21, to do it legally.) and since I’ve always been turned off by any kind of drugs, now I’m turned off even more. Thinking of this whole situation again makes my blood boil.
