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.

COLLEGE.

in the most bike-friendly town in the world. = EASY.



it's official!

I’ve ridden my bike to actually go somewhere I would normally drive to! woohoo! haha. rode my bike with a friend to the climbing gym and back, stopping for groceries on the way. along a busy street, some difficult hills. my butt got an 8-mile workout!



dreamt

Last night I dreamed that I biked over to a friend’s house but got lost on the way. Instead I came across a large building with large plastic flaps covering the doors. The plastic was splattered with blood, and when I looked inside, I saw the floor was completely covered with brutally massacred and skinned pigs, interspersed with a few human cadavers, also skinned. Their eyelidless eyeballs stared out of their skulls at me. I got the hell out of the place and my bike was gone. I hope this horrible dream isn’t some omen warning me that biking will only lead me to bad places! ha.



double

took 2 bike rides today! woohoo.. but I had no particular destination. gotta start biking INSTEAD of driving, not just in addition to driving. too bad I live on a huge frickin hill.



new bike!!!

well, old bike. my grandma has stopped using her bike and gave me hers, woohoo! it’s actually quite a good road bike, much better for street biking then my heavy mountain bike. the front brake is stuck so I’ve got to fix that, but I plan to be riding it soon…



carpooling

have been living with friends for several weeks and carpool with two of them to school, and one to work. saves some gas. I still pay. :|



this is hard because

I live up on this big hill, and everywhere I go is at least a couple miles away. still, I want to get used to riding my bike at least a little, so I can get some exercise in the summer, not be a gas hogger, and get ready for hopefully using my bike in college! :)
