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.

May/June -

Whale watching trip with my Mom & my SO!
We saw a whale & tons of dolphins & sea lions too!

I saw an old childhood friend!
We had lunch & went to the beach together!

I crafted a jar of compliments!


Also For June -

I tried Baby corn!
It was interesting & OK!


More June -

Tried another Greek yogurt!
Oikos Greek Vanilla yogurt, it was good!
But I know I still like Chobani better!


Also For June -

We recycled! (Yay!)
We recycled a large TV that we were no longer using!


Strawberries for June -

I just bought myself the cutest little strawberry plant!
And who knew it has cute little white flowers too!

I hope that I can keep the cute little thing alive!
I’ve been nurturing it already!

I was talking to it & telling it to grow me strawberries & that I would try not to kill it! (LOL)

The funny thing is that strawberries aren’t even my favorite.
But I think they will taste even better if I grow them myself!


Uh Oh -

Now I have to remember what I did for the rest of May…
Why didn’t I write these entries when they happened?


For Friday & Saturday / May -

I went to the fair with my SO!

We mostly just walked around & took pictures!
But we’re getting along really great & that’s all that matters to me!

I’ve got a Super Jumbo bag of fluffy pink & blue cotton candy! (Mmm)
There will need to be lots of hula-hooping! (LOL)

More For May -

Tried Jersey Mike’s Subs for the first time!
We had lunch there & we used a coupon!

They made my sandwich wrong.
I practiced my confidence & had them fix it for me!

My sandwich was good!

Yay for May -

I parked in a parking structure by myself!
I didn’t really want to, but I did it anyway.

I went to listen to live music all by myself!

I parallel parked & didn’t hit any cars!


Also For May -

I tried Chocolate Cheerios!
They were good!
Even though I’m not a big chocolate fan.
I usually like Honey-Nut Cheerios!
