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.

stop picking at my nails

I think that anxiety fueled this habit, and my anxiety lessened a great deal once I got to college. Just being somewhere new and having more control of my life was a huge part of that. More directly though, I was put in the middle of a dorm room with two fairly feminine girls. Didn’t really feel appropriate to sit around picking at my toenails anymore. Hehehe. Not only that, but I used this opportunity started wearing some cute glittery polish to motivate me to stop messing with my nails. When my nails were short and somewhat ragged, I wasn’t able to wear a solid coat of polish that didn’t look awful, but the amorphousness and subtlety of light glitter looked alright. Also, it’s hard as hell to chip off. Now my nails are hard, grow considerably fast, and are extremely easy and quick to paint! It’s a simple pleasure, but below the surface, as cheesy as it may sound, it’s also a proud symbol of combating anxiety. 21 months ago
