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.

A Stretch

I’ve decided to call the health insurance service in for this one….I can’t seem to give it up =( I say I need to quit and end up smoking more! To be fair (and yes I know this is an excuse), my hubby and I are totally stressed out but we HAVE to quit! For ourselves and our kids!!


I suck at this goal.

To Smoke or Not To Smoke

Ok so I have been doing pretty good on this one. I have smoked but those instances were extreme circumstances…..drunk as hell, nervous as hell, and PMSing like all hell!!! I think that a few cigs outta the month versus a pack every couple days is a HUGE improvement!! It’ll eventually get better….

Big Step

For the 1st time in a LONG time, I’ve made it through finals without smoking!!

Trying Hard

I have done really well so far with only 1 slip when I was shitfaced on my birthday (not dealing well with the age thing) and if I can make it thru finals without giving in I’ve managed to accomplish something…..pray for me!

Up in Smoke Literaly

Ok I am the weakest of the weak! I bought a whole pack and have smoked nearly the whole thing (with the help of my hubby who “quit” too)! I feel like such a failure! But I shall rise to the top again!!!!! This will not beat me! I am bigger than the tobacco!!!

~ I'm Weak ~

Ok in the midst of finals and the stress of marital issues I caved and smoked like 9 cigarrettes! I hate myself for it but damn it they tasted sooo good! But that was 2 days ago so I am starting the count over! Wish me luck!!!!

29 Days & counting!!!!

Ok I am gonna be honest with y’all….this sucks. I have managed to pull it off for almost a whole month and I want a cig so bad I could cry! I am cranky, bithcy, and I’ve gained like 6 lbs!!! I hate it! But once again I will overcome!!! YAY me!!!!

~ 19 days and counting! ~

Ok I’ve made it almost 3 weeks without a cig and I’m not the happiest person in the world but there has been no blood shed….yet. I have been tempted to punch several in the mouth and take theirs but I’ve withstood so far…..don’t know how much longer I can make it!

Gettin nowhere!!!!

Ok not even trying…just not ready yet!
