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.

When I stand up for
myself and my beliefs,
they call me a

When I stand up for
those I love,
they call me a

When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts
or do things my own way, they call me a

Being a bitch
means I won’t
compromise what’s
in my heart.
It means I live my life MY way.
It means I won’t allow anyone to step on me.

When I refuse to
tolerate injustice and
speak against it, I am
defined as a

The same thing happens when I take time for
myself instead of being everyone’s maid, or when I act a little selfish.

It means I have the courage and strength to allow myself to be who I truly am and won’t become anyone else’s idea of what they think I ‘should’ be.

I am outspoken, opinionated and determined. I want what I want and there is nothing wrong with that!
So try to stomp on me, just try to douse my inner flame, try to squash every ounce of beauty I hold within me.
You won’t succeed.

And if that makes me a bitch ,so be it.
I embrace the title and am proud to bear it. 5 years ago

I was shocked, confused, bewildered
as I entered Heavens door,
not by the beauty of it’s decor

But it was the folks in Heaven
who made me sputter and gasp.
The theives, the liars, the sinners
The alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
who swiped my lunch money twice,
next to him was my old neighbor
who never said anything nice

Herb, who I always thought was
rotting away in Hell,
was sitting pretty on cloud nine
looking incredibly well

I nudged Jesus, “What’s the deal
I would love to hear your take
how’d all these sinners get up here?”
God must have made a mistake.

“And why is everyone so quiet
so somber-give me a clue,”
“HUSH CHILD” he said, “They’re all in shock,
no one thought they’d be seeing you.” 5 years ago

I am PISSED! My bf just called to inform me that the ex was spotted last night at a comedy club in the VIP section ($75 a piece)with some chick, buying Heinekens all night, and they aren’t cheap. Ask me how much child support I have recieved in 7 years. NONE!!!!! But he can take a bitch on a date that cost at least $200!!!!! LIVIDLY PISSED RIGHT NOW! I am pounding the keys like I want to pound his face! He told his daughter that he was coming to see her, knowing damn well he wasn’t. Were you going to take her with you to the comedy club??? That $200 would really help towards my $1000 gas bill that keeps his daughter warm. 5 years ago

Okay, I had the winning bid for a 1999 Dodge Intrepid. $1600. Okay fine. I was going to pay $225 to have it shipped to me, fine. I spoke with the woman from the car dealership, and she told me that I would have to pay $175 for the ebay listing. WHAT?? I don’t pay for your listing, you do. So she then said it’s in the listing go look we can charge you for whatever. It’s in the listing. Well, yes in the section “Instate buyers” it does state that there will be $175 fee for tax, title license, and the mysterious “documentary” fees. I am not an instate buyer. Under out of state buyers there is no such fee. I tried to contact ebay, and they said basically I am in the wrong for not paying. I need justice!!!!!!!!!!!!! 5 years ago
