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.

33-43

33. I have a bad habit of picking my lip.

34. I am both very shy and very outgoing, depending on my mood.

35. I have two brothers and a sister.

36. My pets tend to meet tragic ends.

37. I love to watch House and Criminal Minds.

38. I hate looking into mirrors in dark rooms. I feel like something will be there that shouldn’t be.

39. My room has to be cold when I sleep. I can handle freezing temperatures, but never hot ones.

40. My eyes change color between blue, gray, and green depending on the lighting.

41. I excel in most academics but am terrible in math.

42. I take 4 different medications every day.

43. I have terrible trust issues. It’s hard for me to confide anything in anyone.



21-32

21. I don’t have a favorite food, color, song, or band. It’s too hard to choose just one.

22. I tend to worry about things that are beyond my control.

23. I have huge circles under my eyes that never go away. I don’t know if they’re caused by allergies or what; I’ve always had them.

24. I have been attacked by ducks before.

25. I read a lot of stories online that I would be ashamed to talk about in real life.

30. Hot irons make me nervous.

31. Someday, I will save a life.

32. I would give blood if needles didn’t make me faint.



13-20

13. I hate texting. I think it’s such a hassle! So I usually don’t even have my cell phone with me.

14. I have really long fingernails.

15. Photography is a big hobby of mine. I like to go wandering just for the sake of taking photos…or do I take photos for the sake of wandering?

16. I’m creative, but I’m also terrible at drawing, shading, painting, etc. I need to take lessons at some point.

17. When I was little, I was obsessed with dinosaurs and dalmatians.

18. After that, I had an obsession with wolves. I still like them.

19. I love to read.

20. It makes me nervous to sleep naked. I’m worried that the house will catch on fire, or someone will walk in…so I always wear pajamas.



12.

When I was little, one of my favorite movies was All Dogs Go to Heaven.



11.

I wear my socks inside out.



10.

I accidentally marked this goal as complete. That’s what I get for typing on a laptop. But I will still finish!



9.

I like vienna sausages, but hate them at the same time. They’re delicious at first, but after two or three that soggy metal taste overpowers my senses. Ick.



8.

I love watermelon Sour Patch Kids, even though I hate the regular flavors.



7.

I love the smell of puppies.



6.

I love to daydream. Whenever I find myself left waiting, in line or at the doctor’s office, I entertain myself by daydreaming.
