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.

Saw Tegan and Sara and The Killers (ew)
Got there late with Korn after a huge fight with my father. Got a kind of shitty spot. I’m incredibly upset about the entire thing. My lil babies were so good though! I’ll happily shell out money to see them, regardless of how long they play.

Finally on vacation. I asked for a “proper” journal for Christmas so I can actually write down things more often. 1 year ago

Accomplishing nothing in the way of school! Tonight is going to be filled with u.s. history and lit prep! Also last minute hand-made gifts!

I have an awful cold, and I think it is getting worse? Urgh.

One more week until vacation – thank god. 2 years ago

It has been QUITE a long time since I was on this website!

I regret not keeping track of every single day. So many things have happened.

Last night I was in a one act at a local high school – I felt incredibly accomplished afterward. Both of the teachers who led us have become so important to me.

I really miss being on antidepressants – I could actually function when I was on them. I’m starting to get my motivation back THANK GOD2 years ago

I saw Prince and was shocked that I enjoyed it so much! School bores me, and work is piling up. I came across a quote today that I can’t stop thinking about

“For lonely people, rain is a chance to be touched.”
- Simon Van Booy

You have no idea how true that can be. I smile when it rains – it doesn’t rain much in Chicago anymore. 2 years ago

what a long time! i need to either get a proper diary or get on this website more! Today I felt a bit sorry for myself and didn’t attend my practice psat test! I watched a few adele concerts, reviewed some apush vocab, and chatted with cat for a bit. It was freezing today and i’m already missing the summer. 2 years ago

Went to a rather nice hotel yesterday with my family and grandmother. I refused to swim. I annotated a book for school and annoyed the other guests at the pool with my ukulele playing. Grabbed a ton of temporary tattoos and now i have a reptile tattoo sleeve that looks rather silly. Today I went shopping for fall clothing and did not succeed. I just can’t accept the fact that i’ve gained weight. So stressed about school. 2 years ago

Today was awful. Felt sick to my stomach all day. None of my friends answered my calls. I was so angry at my father. I just wanted to build a big ol house in a field of daisy flowers and bury myself beneath it! He broke my new vegan bottle in a bit of rage today. I’m upset. I have so much work to do.

Tomorrow we’re going to a hotel, yipee! 2 years ago

Today Cat and Korn were going to model for me, but my camera was freaking out! Ugh, I need to get it repaired. There is no love in my life at all and that is an unhappy place. The schoolwork is already piling up and class has not even begun! I miss my boy. His slow moving mouth is so perfect! I guess I don’t understand loving a boy. There is so much love inside of me, yet it has nowhere to go. I miss Olga. I must phone her tomorrow, oh I simply must! I would love to have just a small fraction of her passion! 2 years ago

sainthoodBefore I get a proper diary...

Today Cat modeled for me! She is the sweetest! Spent some time listening to Cat Stevens. Watched a Gus Van Sant movie and the Nico song at the end made me cry. I miss certain things that I probably shouldn’t. I do NOT miss school, though. I do not want to return. It makes me feel sick even thinking of it. I’m so worried that trees are going to begin growing in my head again.

My boots are too heavy. 2 years ago
