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.

njay17really awkward

i’ve always had problems expressing how i feel and, luckily, managed to find ways to portray them (i did dancing, do singing/art/play instruments) so didn’t really feel as if emotions were mounting up.
but i’m now in a relationship which is really good but past ones have failed because i was “a closed book”. he’s so sweet and tells me how he feels, what he loves about me… i always freeze and say “thank you”. it’s lame, i think he’s catching on to my lack of emotional open-ness and he’s detaching himself.

i hate it. i really do. 5 years ago


SammerszHow lame

I got broken up with last night because I didn’t show my emotions enough apparently. I don’t see why I should love someone and not be able to show my emotions to them. Why do I always mask them with sarcasm?

I’m definitely going to work on improving my emotions 6 years ago


1FindaNameEmotional Expressiveness

I often find that I have a hard time really expressing what’s inside of me. I worry that it makes me seem cold or insincere and that maybe I’m not experiencing life as fully as I could be. However, I do think I’m improving on this front.

Although I feel like I’m a compassionate person, I never cry when I watch movies or things like footage of the Hurricane Katrina victims or even watching images of 9-11. Even though I can feel very saddened by these things, there’s an emotional wall that keeps me from outwardly responding and, I think, connecting to the world around me as deeply as I’d like to. 9 years ago
