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.

angelatheartrachelLife Changing eh?

Awww… just though i’d take this opportunity to say praise about my boyfriend.
The other week he was so upset because he was in a dead end job – his parents were treating him like crap and he wanted to move out but he didn’t have the money. He was learning to drive with ahrdly any money and he just wanted to change.
So i said one line which i’m not sure he believed till it happened.
“Danny Gurney, I am going to change your life in 6 months. First of all you wont notice anything but then things will start changing and you’ll be happy =) ”
And i went home that night and applied to 8 jobs for him.
And guess what…3 rang him the next day…
And he got an interview for the next week,
then he got called back
Then he got offered the job.
And now he has a high paying job nearer to me =) which will get him on the track to getting a better life!
Not too bad for a 17 year old am i?

I have been with my boyfriend for over 2 years now and i am still madly in love with him. When we first started going out we used to write little notes (or long – depending on how much time we had) just talking about random things and how much we though of each other. I kept every single one and it makes me smile when i read back through them all.
We kind of grew out of it whenwe started seeing each other more but i’d love to just every so often remind him how much i love him and care for him =)
