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 am in love.

finally got my bass and his name is jeremy.
i love him.
he’s a fender j bass, metallic black, with a long smooth neck and so shamefully hot.

to bond i slept with him but it was quite uncomfortable.

been practicing every single day [my hands they bleed]because we have a concert coming up and damn straight we’re going to kill it.

get everyone singing, jumping and crying as well
[cause we’re doing the graduation song too]

i need to find someone who plays bass to tutor me because i’m sure no matter what, i’m probably still creating some terrible habit.

even doing arpeggios and scales aren’t that bad.


i think to really achieve this, i should own an actual bass guitar.

these days i’ve been practising on a small acoustic guitar at home.

*shakes head.
the horror.

naivedoll has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
