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.

remember and record my dreams (read all 53 entries…)

I’m not generally afraid of snakes, but I don’t like them (or even bugs) to be close enough to touch me or to jump out and attack….

In my dream last night I had just left the old apartment and I was walking down the campus center to find something (or maybe I was crawling but everyone else was doing it so it was fine). There are people nearby playing with dogs or something (ok, cool). Then I feel some sort of animal near me (maybe I was laying on my back staring at the sky) but there was a tiny animal under my back squirming around. At first I thought it was maybe a squirrel or a ferret or a kitten. I’m not sure why, but it was important for me to get a hold of it (maybe so it didn’t jump out and attack me?) So I was holding it with two hands behind my back and I realize it’s a snake. A few feet long, and quite wide, and not exactly something you wanna run into or be holding. I wanted badly to get it away from me, but since my hands were behind me back, I didn’t know quite how to do that. The scenery changed again. I was inside some dark and damp and moldy castle-like apartment with the snake and I still just wanted to let go of it. I couldn’t find anyone to help me. There were no people around.

I was just really anxious and I didn’t know what to do. I woke up feeling uncomfortable (and hoping there were no snakes in my room).

Here’s what dreammoods says…


To see a snake or be bitten by one in your dream, signifies hidden fears and worries that are threatening you. Your dream may be alerting you to something in your waking life that you are not aware of or that has not yet surfaced. The snake may also be seen as phallic and thus symbolize dangerous and forbidden sexuality. The snake may also refer to a person around you who is callous, ruthless, and can’t be trusted. As a positive symbol, snakes represent transformation, knowledge and wisdom. It is indicative of self-renewal and positive changes
