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.

She's Out of the G-building

She came out Friday nite, and the great thing is that she called me the morning of to tell me she was leaving that day. I was glad to hear from her and I was glad to know she was happy to hear from me. Her voice sounded different but that prolly b/c she hadn’t been talking much while she was there for 4 days. We were laughing on the phone and she even spoke sum gibberish (for the explicit information) while telling me wut was going on there. She said she was one of the 9 girl there, and 5 of them were lesbians. Right then I said, “Where do I sign up?!” I was gonna go to her house today, but I’m not too sure I’m in the mood. We’ll see

The Psychiatric Ward

Sheena is in King’s County Hospital on account of depression. NOw wut to do? Wut can I do as a friend to help her get better? The sad part is that I kinda wish I was her. That depression and miserable attitude is wut I’m use to and have almost grown attach to. I would like to see her, but I’m afraid that prolly wont let me in. And then another part of me is jealous, on account of all those times I was depressed and wanted to kill myself, but still I had to go to skool. Still I had to live a normal life with thoughts of self hatred and self destruction wandering around in my head. Why does she get so much attention?! That right there would make me want to kill myself.


Love her too much to just let her go.


I want to:
