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.

~Beautifuldwarf~Hi... how are u? O_o

Yup, I called him. The moment was a mix between curiosity and excitement. Then I felt a little anxiety, confusion and sadness. Why? for two reasons: I realize how boring I was in that moment and im still learning about how to live alone.

The conversation were ok, lots of questions about family, work and other stuff. Then the uncomfortable questions: why I called him (just to know you are ok) and my expectations (I’m not talking about a reconciliation, its that possible we can be friends?). His attitude was skeptical (“I don’t believe in you” or “I’m very sure you want to have sex”).

But today, three days later after talk about to go out and talk a little, I really think if I did the right thing. How much time you have to wait to talk like friends with your ex. Sometimes I think if that not possible. Also I have to evaluate if I have a hide reason to did that (“maybe I want to have sex” or “Im very very bore and I didn’t make something”). 15 months ago


~Beautifuldwarf~Im starting to mourn...

and hurts. I forget the last time I talk with him, maybe one month, maybe more. I remmeber those last days, horrible. The only thing I remmember it was Saturday and he scream. Just few words, he isn’t a agressive person. He problem was the lies. Lies for all. Like a double life. Again… horrible…

One week ago, its like awake for a dream. This excitement for the separation suddenly dispear and now i really feel alone. Pretty similar like my life with him, but without sex.

But in this separation (obviosly this is not my first relationship), i just want to breath and cry. Not go outside to screw around and meet the first guy in the street, or call a friend with privileges… i just want to rest for these years i spend with him. For the good times and bad times. I want to say thanx you for the help when I really need it, thanxs for the fun and the love but you give me the oportunity to feel the bad things. Get angry, sad, disillucion for all the moments I notice but I ignore you was in other things, all the moments I called you and you didnt respond and all the times I saw you in your ex house (in the same neighbourhood).

I just want to feel and relief, because im free of that… 16 months ago
