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.

I keep waiting for something safe, and familiar to reach out to.
To touch, to know it is real, and still exists.
To gain a sense of comfort while trying to regain a sense of balance and stability…

Life just comes at you full force, nonstop.
And all you can hope for is that the next blow doesn’t knock you off entirely.
Life. It’s merciless, unfeeling. It doesn’t slow down, it’ll just trample you, especially when you’ve hit the ground.
And only stomp you into rock bottom.
Blow after blow.

And…sort of keep finding myself disappointed in my search.
Which at this point, I’ve found that my mind has formed a habit of slipping into this weird hibernation.


Where I complexly space out for minutes at a time.
Though thoughts are still floating around in my mind…I am not all there.

I guess you could say I’m somewhat numbed or subdued by this.

This is what I am experiencing right now, as I type this.

No need to elaborate, to merely state.

Can the body detect things like a nervous breakdown and prevent them in such a way?
That would be fascinating.
Just really out of it.
Really out of it.
