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.

hopenaNot Dark Yet - Bob Dylan

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JBHyE18L3o

Shadows are falling and I’ve been here all day
It’s too hot to sleep time is running away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I’ve still got the scars that the sun didn’t heal
There’s not even room enough to be anywhere
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

Well my sense of humanity has gone down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing there’s been some kind of pain
She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writing what was in her mind
I just don’t see why I should even care
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

Well, I’ve been to London and I’ve been to ‘gay Paris’
I’ve followed the river and I got to the sea
I’ve been down on the bottom of a world full of lies
I ain’t looking for nothing in anyone’s eyes
Sometimes my burden seems more than I can bear
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

I was born here and I’ll die here against my will
I know it looks like I’m moving, but I’m standing still
Every nerve in my body is so vacant and numb
I can’t even remember what it was I came here to get away from
Don’t even hear a murmur of a prayer
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there. 15 months ago

Movie Loves A Screen ~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPXu7grYRCc

One means somebody’s lonely
Company means there are two
Three means a crowd, and it’s about to get loud
And four means more than a few

Five means to take a quick little break
And get back to work when you’re through
I just want to mean something to you

Lightning means there’ll be thunder
Sun means the sky’ll be blue
When the leaves are falling, it means that autumn is calling
And the summer days are through

Snowflakes mean that it’s winter
Yeah, the birds’ll tell you it’s true
I just want to mean something to you

Maybe what I mean to say
Is that I think about you in the most romantic of ways
And I’m hoping you’ll be open to discussing us and nothing in between

Maybe what I mean is that I love you more than any other I’ve seen
If you couldn’t tell well I hope you’re quite keen on it
Like a rhyme loves a sonnet
Like a movie loves a screen
That’s what I wanna mean to you

Laughing means there is happiness
Crying means somebody’s blue
Screaming implies someone’s been telling lies
Or an apology is overdue

A smile means things turned out alright
Despite an oversight or two
I just want to mean something to you
I just want to mean something to you

I just want to mean something to you

hopenaBest Day Of Your Life - Katie Herzig

I’m gonna race you to the fence, to the fence
I’m gonna race you to the fence
I’m gonna chase you ‘round the block, ‘round the block
I’m gonna chase you ‘round the block

Come on, jump out the door
You can’t hold it back no more
I’ll show you how the birds learned how to fly

I’m gonna take you on a ride, on a ride
I’m gonna take you on a ride
I’m gonna race you to the sky, to the sky
I’m gonna race you to the sky

Come on, jump out the door
You can’t hold it down no more
I’ll show you how the birds learned how to fly
Don’t mind leaving your nest
Don’t mind making a mess
This might be the best day of your life

I’m gonna race you to the moon, to the moon
I’m gonna race you to the moon
We’re gonna get there real soon, real soon
Hold your breath, I bet that we will get there soon

Come on, jump out the door
You can’t hold it back no more
I’ll show you how the birds learned how to fly
Don’t mind leaving your nest
Don’t mind making a mess
This might be the best day of your life

I’ve had no sleep, and need to try to get out of the house today, so I’m listening to this… I used to have this CD – received it for my birthday, eight years ago – and it always made me want to move. it makes me want to paint, too – to put on the music, and get lost in something.

I also wish that we could just grab the dogs and go on a roadtrip. We all need a break from here. This makes me think of the Spring and Summer…

I’m Going To Stop Pretending That I Didn’t Break Your heart

I’m gonna tell you what you need to hear
And i’m a little too late
By three or four years
And it may not make much sense
Now that we are apart
But i’m going to stop pretending
That i didn’t break your heart

You see i never thought enough of myself
To realize that losing me could mean
Something like the tears in your eyes
And i want to tell you i’m sorry
And it’s too late to start
But i’m going to stop pretending
That i didn’t break your heart

And it’s christmas eve
Years down the line
Sitting here wishing i’d treated you better
When you were mine
And i have no way of knowing where you are
But i’m going to stop pretending
That i didn’t break your heart

I didn’t mean to hurt you
I didn’t know what i was doing
But i know what i have done
