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.

They had to shove me on the plane....

I was just in Van City in June, and I was so depressed to leave. I’ve decided however it is silly to move to a new expensive city flat broke. So I’m where I am for a couple more years, saving up $$$.


about moving there Summer of 2007, after I graduate, do my practicum and go out to ONtario for my friend’s wedding.
I can stay with my uncle and aunt until I find a place to live and a job….something to think about. It’s scary but also exciting.

A girl at work

where I’m working this summer lives in Vancouver/Burnaby (same thing really) during the year. She has a walk-out basement suite. The $$ she’s paying for it, couldn’t buy you a hole in the ground in Calgary. This has made me more optimistic about moving there!

My dad....

is going to visit his dad in Vancouver this week. I told him to put me in his suitcase and take me with him. For some reason he didn’t really get on board with the plan…hmm….

It's too cold where I live

I love Vancouver, I want to move there in the next couple years. I want to walk next to the ocean, I want to go whale watching, I want to eat sushi and do yoga.
