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.

Alison Liwork harder

people say “work hard u’ll succeed” or “work hard play hard” but lately an acquaintance they i interact with has work hard at 16, able to do residency for med students yes i said 16 and now he’s back at community college deciding to concentrate (for example wanting to do surgury specializing in the heart) so this is b**t and also my friend staying at undergraduate one more year when she’s already finished for her bf and ended up breaking up, and she’s now really happy and productive in her life, so this work hard thing is just really not applied well 12 months ago

Alison Liwiki improv

go wiki for some acccuracy

” If she’s not interested (that doesn’t mean she doesn’t like you, but she likely doesn’t have a crush on you or romantic desire), she’ll likely look at you inquisitively, but she won’t express any particular strong emotion.” haha wiki give you some props for that.

now parody time….yayyyy

“If she likes you and she told her friends about you, they might come up to you and start a random conversation about things such as: Who would you rather date me or (her name), who do you like better, who is the hottest, would you marry (her name) or me, etc. If they name a list of about three people and her name is in the list, she probably told her friends about you and they’re trying to search for clues to see how you feel about her.” wikihow website’s def got their A-GAME on ;) we guna lurk and let all our hair down, right ladies?
okay, the only reason that would happen is NEVER. unless ur friends is like backstabbing b** but I don’t really seeing that…I mean seriously, who has time for that when you can be doing something even more productive than that. until next time wiki how ;)

Alison LiI feel so grateful

So basically, yesterday reminded me that even though life is unfair, it is still good. For instance, Mrs. Aaron, an ex-secretary who works at a school near Sunrise came to VISIT ME…OMG!!!!! that made me feel so so so so incredible and then when Mrs. Aaron reminded me that I have true friends, it made me realize for the very first time that I, in fact do have true friends. For instance, the time period when I was having mental stress alert breakdown, I would constantly call my friend, and he would not only de-stress me, but he would cheer me up :) Moreover my friend, Hannah, would always be there for me now that I think about it, for instance, when I cried because of an embarrasing moment that happened in school and when there was no one to vent to, I just vented to her. I could honestly say that she is one of my best friends :) Just took the SATs and although I don’t know about the scores, I feel confident that I did well. 3 years ago

proudofmyfrecklesweird dreams

So, I was a little sad the past couple of semesters, but life has really started to grow sunny since. One of my sad issues had been weird dreams. I had a weird dream last night for the first time in forever, and just taking some time to deal with it once I woke up..analyzing it for all the silly things and also all the things that made sense helped me get over it and now my day won’t be colored by the weird dream.

So. Yeah. I think that’s part of the progress. 3 years ago

Lady_Twitti love me and my life =')

barbar_ellarough times.

i am very self-loathing right now. but even though i see some issues with myself i will still love my life. i swear it. i wont just sit here on the internet all day, smoking. which is what i am inclined to do when i am very depressed.

i just have to look on the bright side i guess. 5 years ago


i love my life a lot more than i use to. i don’t have many complaints except for things like problems with family sometimes. i do a lot of fun things with my friends. having good friends who are open minded and accepting makes a big difference. and working in a place where the people are cool helps. i know i would love my life more if i was doing meaningful work well that i enjoyed. and if i had more money it couldn’t hurt but you don’t need money to be happy. at some point i would like to have those things (a bit more money and a job i really loved and a good relationship with a great guy). until then i am still happy though. 5 years ago
