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.

i'm an soparano

well i know that sometimes dreams dont really come true but well to really tell all of you the truth i fell that sometimes when i want to really express myself i just ahve fun when i sing to my friends, and family. i used to want to model but then i asked myself do i really wanna do this or just look good in front of everyone? well i said no i would just wanna be myself. so i had to think about this dream for a while i was afraid to take risks and i thought well you have to grow up sometimes so people would ask me what do you wanna do when you grow up? then i would just pause and say something else or i would try to change the subject. It;s really hard to find someone famous like a producer or agents, and etc. ima tell it like it is thats how i feel i really hard. i just want people to like my music and just feel the flow you know. in school in my music class i was an soparano. so my teacher had a solo part so people actually made me do it well not technically made me but my friends pushed me to do it. then when i tried out in front of the whole class they just looked at me the whole room got quiet. i was scared cause i thought did i do good or bad? then 2 seconds later the class started to clap for me. my friends, and family support me from thick and thin. so guess what i got voted for best singer in my school. so if you really wanna be a singer the tip i can gave each and everyone of you is to never give up. thank you class of “06”!!!
