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.

CutelyEvilIt's been almost a year since my last entry

and I’m no closer then I was before. If anything I think I might believe less as time goes on.

It’s weird though. Part of me thinks there is still something out there but I can’t find it and I don’t know what to do. I think I’ll e-mail my cousin and my friend. My cousin is really close with me and is an atheist so it’ll be interesting to listen to how he came to that conclusion. My friend was pagan but became atheist and…for lack of better words, came out on the other side again as pagan. How the fuck did she do that? I just don’t see the point in it all anymore.

I almost never pray, some days I think I get an inkling of something and then most days I feel nothing at all. I want to take part in rituals and holidays but I don’t see the point and get so apathetic about it. Doesn’t help that the house I live in is almost oppressively Christian and the people I live with are assholes. I can’t wait to get out of this house.

Sometimes I feel like crying. 2 years ago


CutelyEvilI'm So Confused

I have no clue what I believe in anymore. I don’t know if I believe in God or Gods or if I don’t. I feel so abandoned by my faith. I just don’t feel that connection anymore with The All like I used to. I haven’t even done any type of rituals or spells either because I don’t know what the point is or if they’ll work. I don’t really pray anymore because I don’t know who to pray to and I don’t celebrate any of the Pagan holidays because it feels like it’s just lip service.

I don’t think I’m an atheist though, I just don’t know how to get that connection back, or what I really believe in and I don’t know where to start looking for it.

I feel so alone in the spiritual sense. It makes me really sad, I don’t feel like the Gods care about me anymore, everything’s just gone. I don’t really know what to do. I keep telling people I’m a Pagan still because the truth is just too complicated to explain.

It’s been like this for a while now. I was looking for signs to lead me in the correct direction to find my spirituality again, but….it just seems like they’ve stopped and I don’t know where to go from here.

Has anyone ever had a crisis of faith before? What the hell did you do?

I can’t help but think that if I was a Christian this might be easier, haha. 2 years ago
