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.

FAQ

sitruunapuu loves ♥

post random questions daily and see if anyone plays with me and answers them :) (read all 38 entries…)
How old are you?

Do you feel your age, or younger/older?
Or is your age completely irrelevant?

I feel that I am my age. I’ve actually been thinking about this, and I have always felt quite same way about me. I don’t mean now that when I was 7 years old I felt same than when I was 21. I mean that they way I looked the world has always been by my own eyes and while I have grown my perspective have changed. I have no idea how other 25 years olds feel about themselves so I am not sure do I feel the same as “regular 25 years old”. I just feel like my own age that changes as I grow. If this makes any sense.

If I think about that I am half way there to 30’s it makes me feel old. However, generally, I don’t feel old.

I really like

the way you put this, Neko. :)

Thanks! :)

joeyinthebush sigh.....

I'm 40.... & it amazes me!

I’m blown away that I’ve lived this long!
I don’t feel that old in my head (i don’t feel any older than when i was at 20 – just a lot less unsure & fearful)............ then I encounter a young person & can’t even understand what they’re saying because I don’t know all the new slang.
All this nostalgia for the ‘80s makes me feel old too.
Physically its a whole other story. My knee joints feel 40! and I’m fat & can’t climb trees like i used to.

Becca is focused.

I look younger than I am, but I often feel older than I am. Chronic illness can do that to a person. Being in pain all of the time makes me feel decades older than I am. So that I look younger and have the spirit of the young helps to balance that out for me. :)

iamevoxus there is freedom in letting go

i am

30, but most people find it hard to believe as i look younger. people always seem to think i am 24/25 which is fantastic!

the best was when a customer in the restaurant asked me if i had finished my A-levels that day! i was like… erm i finished school a long time ago! i still occasionally get asked for id to buy ciggarettes, ha ha. its a bit crazy.

but regardless, i feel my age, i think about time moving on and things id like to acheive, and also how short life is, so make the best of your years. and at the same time i still feel like im 24 years old again… not taking life too seriously either. theres a balance between the 2. so its a bit of yin and yang

also i am fine with getting older, but i do want to look good for my age as i get older. (in my ideal world, i will look younger every year that i age, with out the help of surgery etc) i really love seeing older women in their 50s, 60s and older and you think wow they just look amazing, and you cant believe that they are significantly older.mentally, physically, emotionally etc with vitality and energy for life. i admire women like that. it takes effort and pride to keep maintaining your appearance, health etc esp as one gets older

Big cheer for Sigur Ros :)

I'm 40 plus

but I still feel 20. It’s comforting to see my kids get older, but I’m the same.

I’m about 10 pounds lighter than I was a couple of years ago. I think that might help. I also like to eat healthy, and love to move.

littlesoul dark is.....dangerous ;)

My mum

used to say “you’re only as young as the woman you feel” ;)

I was thinking

of that same quote today too. George Burns said that and it’s funnier for him to say it than your mom.

True

don’t even know why my mum said it as i don’t think she was interested in women…....or was she?????

I'm x

I don’t like to give out my age. People get so caught up in the number and measure you according to it. I know this because I was someone who always did that when I was younger.

When you try to be vauge about it, people seem obsessed with finding out how old you are – as if it were a challenge for them to know.

LOL – I’m a runner so anyone who knows how to spell my name can find out – age is ALWAYS posted with your name.

I finally feel my age now,

but for years and years, I stayed stuck at 17…

Much has happened during the past 2-3 years, and I’ve now caught up, and can say that I feel my age. It’s a nice feeling, actually. I feel young, yet mature. Like I’ve experienced a lot, but have yet much to experience. It’s a good balance, really :)

I’m 34.

thelightfuntastic will miss this secret place.

I'm 37.

For a while I was stuck at 26. Now I think myself somewhere around 30, till I remember, no, heading towards 40. So I guess, overall, my age is irrelevant.

The only thing age is good for is cheese...

I happen to be 53 years old and last time at the gym felt like I was 35 and stronger than ever, LOL; and my dad is 90 years young. Sure he has some dementia but he still can understand what your talking about,

He loves sports on TV, he watches the local Boston teams and can tell you plays and name main players and sport stars.

So, if you act young an feel young than you can be younger than you expect to be.
