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.

poetry_flowApologies to the world

I want to start by saying sorry.I’m sorry for everything that is wrong with me, and for everything i cant control. I’m sorry for being so stupid at times, for acting so foolish.I apologies for being so distant when i was scared to know the truth. I’m also sorry for not knowing what to do in the situation i was put in.I’m sorry for p0utting your business out when i didnt have anyone to go to, especially when nobody told me what I should of done. I”m sorryfor putting anyone in any misery, dicomfort, and pain. I apologize for my looks and defined personality. I can’t do everything i said i would, so guess what, I’m sorry,I’m sorry, I’m sorry,I’m sorry that i couldnt fit the “perfect” girl that would do anything to please someone.I apologize for feeling like i shouldnt have to please anyone. I feel like i should just be myself and not what everyone else whats me to be, i guess i was wrong, and for that I’m sorry. I can apologize and say sorry to a billion and one things, so here are my apologies to the world. 3 years ago

Candy HillIt Begins with "R" (12-30-10)

I wish I wasn’t jumped, that they would have left instead. Why did they go so far? Even though I begged them to stop, they used me as a toy, their own selfishness took the best from me. Dignity that I can never get back, a dirt that I can never cleanse. I feel like a disease that can’t be cured, questions that can never be answered. They dropped me in a world full of confusion, lost and hopeless. I am no longer sure of what I want in life. Broken and defeated, scared to sleep. Can’t run without the worry and guilt.I’m entering into a depression that I have never seen before. I’m changed now and it’s all their fault! Breathing in intoxicated air, curling underneath a rock never felt so good. 3 years ago

Dennis BazeNothin But Time

Two mirrors
One of which is reflecting back at me
One a mirror of the mind
The other has me questioning what I see

Where will I be 5 years down the road
When I turn the age of 35
Will I relapse again
Knowing time is not on my side

Will I only choose what I choose to see
Or become the person I was meant to be
Will I feel okay emotionally
Will I walk with positivity

My mental state is a big factor in this equasion
Knowing problems will come and problems will go

I ask myself how I should handle this
Don’t stress on it
Life is full of pain and full of bliss
I roll my hand into a fist
Look at the watch around my wrist

and I say
I ain’t got nothin but time 3 years ago
