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.

get rid of bad friends
I'm just tired.

I once sat down with this friend and talked with her about the way she acted and told her it was how she says things. It was always negative, and when it was positive it was always about her. She is so self centered she didn’t even see that I had become depressed. Everybody else did but not her.

I’ve been known to be the lively funny one. She invited me to a party of one of her friends that I’ve never met, I went because I said I would. I was having a good day, when dealing with depression it comes and goes. I was making polite conversation and doing my best to be somewhat chipper. At the end of the party she came up to me and told me “Be more animated next time” I was totally and completely floored. I had been trying so hard and she didn’t even know it.

And when this friend dosen’t get her way she throws a tantrum like a child and then everybody in the group pays attention to her. I am so sick of it. she is over 20 years old!


I want to:
