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.

grow wings (read all 115 entries…)

Ever get that feeling, like you KNOW what’s going on in someone’s head?

This guy has a really big crush on me, and I try not to lead him on. But even if I say something like a simple “hi!” I can feel his spirits raise and his hope goes up. If I ignore him, I feel devastation from him. I don’t know if it might just be me being stupid, but I swear… o.O


My wish bracelet fell off today… it wasn’t even on THAT LONG. I really hope my wings do come super soon, but I am doubting it. I also had a dream that I had wings, but its super hazy. I need to practice more with seeing the future type stuff. My back has been hurting crazily, and I can move a new muscle in my back.

RQD: What would you do if your wings came out during a presentation or at a competition? (ex: during a play, during a math competition, when presenting a group project…)


SkyBird Winged Things are crashing down all around me! Why?

If I were on stage or something, I would basically run off stage and into the bathroom. XD
