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.

Living in London...no longer

I’ve sort of finished my program, and have returned to the States to finalize my project. London was cool, but the bureaucracy was ridiculously annoying the majority of the time. I grew very unhappy because I was there and jobless, but, it was a learning experience. And overall i did have a great time. I was in London since January 07, and returned at the beginning of March this year. It took me six months to lose the glamour, to see the City as it was and another few months to pick myself up and focus on school and not the finances. I was able to see the city and enjoy myself, because I eventually realized that money isn’t necessary to enjoy yourself when you have good company. It helps, though.



Leavin your old life behind and moving to London

My one piece of advice is save as much money as you possibly can before quitting your job and crossing the pond. It’s great but really, Really, expensive.



Living in London

Ha ha! I did it!. I quit my job and moved to London. I’m at school, struggling financially, but blooming in my soul
