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.

I had them before, but because I want begin driving lessons I wasn’t brave enough to drive with old and weak ones :) so I bought new pair of glasses. In the beginning I was all like ‘ah its so much money, I’m gonna look ridiculous” etc. But when I have them now, they are all stylish and fashionable and I look pretty nice with them. :)



Driving

I’m attending driving lessons and in order to drive and not just to hear theory [which I already red and almost learned] I have to buy new glasses. The only problem is my face is umm… interesting and I look ridiculous wearling most of the galsses. I have to be faster to choose and to choose reasonably-priced.
I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 15, but my sight is not very bad, minus 0,75 or minus 1 max, I live everyday life without them, and wear them so rarely, in studies sometimes when I’m at the back of the class, and now- while driving, that just doesn’t make sense to buy expensive ones. But i need the replacement for my old ones, because it’s broken and kinda too weak, I can see text in the class but I wouldn’t feel comfortable and confident while driving.



when?

I don’t know. I lost my job. This is going to the end of the list. No money equals blur world.
