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.

List 100 things about me

100 (finally)

I was homeschooled for 7 years, because in 2nd grade I started getting depressed. That was right after my mom had my youngest brother, and he and my other brother were both too young for school. My dad was a pastor, so he didn’t really leave the house, and my mom was a stay-at-home-mom, so she didn’t either. I think I felt left out. So she started homeschooling me, and kept it up with my brothers. I went back to public school in high school, and it was three years after that, before my brothers decided to start public school, so in total, my mom spent 10 years homeschooling us.


I once made a list of 100 things I couldn’t do, then burned it, to symbolize that I wasn’t going to hold myself to those restrictions. I don’t remember most of what was on it, so I have to wonder if that worked or not.


I’m a reality TV junkie. Not the shows that are injected with drama though. I prefer, American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, What Not to Wear, Extreem Makeover Home Edition, Ten Years Younger, Wipe Out, and The Bachelor.


I grew up poor, and still am, and as such, have learned to shop thrifty. I have never shopped at the Gap, or Old Navy, or any of those over-priced, preppy stores. I buy my stuff at Thrift stores, Wal-Mart, or Target, and I still have nice stuff, and cute clothes.


I never leave the house without my cell phone, even though it’s been cut off for almost a month. Reason being, it’s not just my phone. It’s my phonebook, my calculater, my calandar, my alarm, and my entertainment. (it has tetris, oragan trails, and a puzzle game.)


Even though my dad hates pets, I’ve had quite a few. There was the dogs, Missy, Joy and Cheva, (I still have Cheva.) cats, OJ, Kitty Kitty, and Tobie, my goldfish, flash and stripe, the hampster, Cookie, and Girbles, Salt, Pepper, Cinnimon, Sugar, and Toast.


I once broke a computer. My brother was turning it on to play a game, but for some reason, I didn’t want him to, so while it was still booting up, I turned it back off. Somehow, that killed it. It would never work again.


I used to hate my dad. He is a total computer geek, and when he’s home, you sometimes forget he’s home, because he’ll spend hours upon hours in his room on the computer. I used to think he didn’t like our family, and that’s why he spent so much time seperate from us. Once I got older, two things occured to me. First, he was doing alot of work on the computer to keep our family afloat, and second, he doesn’t relate that well to children, but the older I got, the more we have in common. I love him to death now.


The first resume I ever made, I showed to my dad for critiquing…he laughed at it.


I’ve learned today what a big number 100 actually is. I learn something new every day. :)
