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.

Tomorrow I am volunteering at my local habitat for humanity and I am so excited! Hopefully everything goes well. The one downside is that I need to wake up at 7 in the morning, oh well that’s life. 20 months ago

I want to prove everyone wrong for so many reasons. I don’t know how to say this without sounding hateful, but I’ll give it a try.

This goal isn’t simple about losing weight or showing off my body. It did start off that way, however, I evolving it to much more. During my grammar school days I struggled horribly, the fact I was barely learning English and all the kids alright knew it, played a big factor. The fact my parents couldn’t help me just isolated me. However my family, not my mother or father, laughed and made fun of me. Saying to my mother that I was stupid and never going to make something of myself and how their kids were better then me. Please keep in mind I was 6 or 8 years old, a child. Its quite sad when you think about it now, but I’m having the last laugh. My cousins are performing poorly at the community college they attend, if they are still attending.

As I’m writing this I am realizing much how my family teased and ridiculed me. All of this probably led to my low self esteem and insecurities but I’m not completely blaming them. I also have a huge role in the way I view myself and the fact I believed everything they said. I want to prove to everyone that I can be amazing and the first step is going to be looking the part. Even though I’m going to prove they are wrong I’m still in this for me.

The reasons why:

To feel amazing
To feel comfortable in a swimming suit during my trip to California
Lastly to look stunning during my little cousin’s first communion party next year, I want to stun everybody and finally show everybody that I’m the skinny cousin! 20 months ago

So far I’ve dropped out of school BUT I have my own place, I pay all of my own bills, I own a car, and I have a full time job which I had been promoted since beginning, I have no children, I volunteer, and I’ve remained in a 3 year relationship with someone who I love, loves me and I love to be around. Next step, cosmetology school, to start my real career. 3 years ago
