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.

Marriage is subjective

I know that now. You don’t know what you’re getting into until you’re already there. In laws will always take their son or daughter’s ‘side’ and divides just happen in families. I no longer look at divorce as giving up, but as an option to make one happier.


I did it! I won’t mark this as done though for a few anniversaries.

Set in stone

We have our wedding bands now and my $500 dress (yes, 5 freaking hundred dollars!!!) comes in on Wed.
I’m getting married in 96 days!

I'm engaged!

I got engaged on Dec 17th 2008 and we’ve set the date for Oct 17th 2009. He’s the one. He’s such a mature, caring, responsible, and HILARIOUS man. I’m looking forward to spending THE REST OF MY LIFE with him!

Ultimate goal in life

This has always been my main goal in life. I want to marry a man that loves and understands me.
Growing up I witnessed my parents hate for each other and mistreatment towards one another. My mom has been married for almost 10 years now to my step-dad (her 3rd husband) and I want so much more for my life and my family than that.
Can’t people get it right the first time anymore. Why would you marry someone with the intention of getting divorced or knowing that if you two hit the slightest bump in the road you will.
No. Not me. When I marry it will be for a lifetime; unless it’s a damaging situation for my family, which is unlikely b/c I intend to know my future husband inside and out before I marry him.
