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.

Sort of close

I’m signing up to take an online Fiction class to fulfill my elective requirements for school. It’s supposed to teach me how to interpret and learn how to write fiction, should be interesting and somewhat helpful.

Something old I found collecting dust ..

I wrote it on 2-13-03.

Vacancy to Ecstacy

I have a vacancy for ecstacy
Do you have what it takes to fill me up to capacity
I’m open 24 hours so there is no need to look any further
Once you have stopped here it doesn’t get any better

Do you need a place to lay your head
I want to make your stay here one you will never forget
When you slip in your key, it glides in with ease
Like it was meant for just you, such a perfect fit

Your inside my walls now and I control your every move
effortlessly you make your rounds as if you have been here before
you explore every inch of your surroundings in such a delicate way

It makes me wonder if this is what you’ve been missing a place to call home
But being a man I know you like to roam
You tell me that your hungry, but there’s no room service tonight
But I have plenty for you to eat to satisfy your appetite

I’ve swtiched the sign to “full” because I know your here to stay
anyone else looking for vacancies will just have to find another location today.


I need help with developing characters and plots. This will be my biggest challenge starting a novel. I have tons of ideas but relaying them to paper in a orderly and correct fashion will be the task.

It's the meat

of one of my ultimate dreams to write a book. I need to get on the ball plus I need to take an elective class to fulfill my requirements to graduate so I can kill two birds with one stone .. I’m off to sign up .. woohoo
