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.

Delaware Love?

In a mere 35 hours, I am going to be heading off to Delaware with my friend for a week. We are going to be renting a house with her family, and her parents friends family. There will be a few boys there… no one that I would ever be interested in, but there will be boys… in the same house… hehe. I am hoping to make a cute boyfriend/fling on this trip… and maybe finally get that perfect kiss in the rain!!! I must check the forecast in Delaware… God, please let it rain for ONE DAY! Or night… night is possibly even better!

I am so excited. I am pretty sure I wont meet anyone my age, but there is always hope, right?! Good luck guys. Never give up hope, XD. Wait it out; is my advice for everyone, including myself. “One day my prince will come!”

xoxo, H.


This is just a little inspiration for those of us who are feeling blue, like this will never happen… It will! Just wait!


Ever since I was younger and saw “The Notebook”, I have wanted to do this. I remember saying to my friend, “I want to do that, I want to kiss in a storm like that!”

How romantic, really! First, however, I need to find a guy to kiss!!!

xoxo, H.
