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.

Home looks so shabby.

I arrived March 26th. Everything went smoothly; my grandmother had NO clue that I was going to be there. When I arrived at her door she was pleasantly surprised. I was with my friend Sarah and I hate that it rained the ENTIRE time we were there but honestly, it didn’t matter to me. It was like I had never left…I remembered where everything was as I successfully weaved my way in and out of traffic. Blame it on the rain but the place that I call home looked so poor. Everything was where I left it (with the exception of Plaza del Caribe’s trademark carousel) but it seemed so solitary…so dark and gloomy. I didn’t care…there’s really NO PLACE LIKE HOME. I enjoyed every second that I was there and I had to hold back tears as we took off from San Juan. I can’t wait to go back again…I’m supposed to be going back on the 16th for Las Justas…my fellow Boricuas know EXACTLY what I’m talking about! Wish me luck!!

Oh yeah!!

I’m headed back home!! Not for good sad face...yet. lol. I can’t wait!! I’ll be leaving on Monday and I’m getting quite antsy. I’m so excited to be going home ladies and gentleguys!! Wish me luck all!!


I left Puerto Rico 01.09.03 and I haven’t been back since. I left for a stupid reason (love)...and now I wish I had never left. There really is NO PLACE LIKE HOME…Poncena de corazon.


I want to:
