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.

day 4

Today I was walking in the rain with my friend Morgan. She lives in this awesome co-op with a nice garden around the back. We were walking and talking and we stopped. We closed our umbrellas and looked straight up. It wasd the most peaceful expeirience I’ve ever had.

day 3

Today in the elevator, there was this kid, around 8-11, barefoot with an old, dirty, ripped up rag on his shoulder. I didn’t know who he was, I had never seen him in the neighborhood before. He was on the elevator with me and got off at the same floor. On the way up, though, he kept scratching his feet. I couldn’t help but notice how calloused they sounded, and that he had numerous red marks on his legs. Bug bites? I don’t know if was homeless or poor or orphaned. But the fact that he had no shoes really struck me. I felt so fortunate. I found this while staring at the floor, trying to avoid eye contact. I was looking down at my shoes, brown Crocs with charms on them.

When back at my house, I told my mom, and she left to check it out. When she arrived quickly, I asked her what happened. She replied, that he was a friend of Jake’s, a neighbor down the hall.
That left me pondering…

Day 2

Yay! I am actually keeping up with this goal. Today was my friend’s mom’s birthday. I had blueberry waffles for breakfast.I always wondered who wrote the music for High School Musical, because it really sucks. I wonder if the composer actually realizes how crappy is is.
We’re all in this together, la blah blah blah I don’t know the dumb words
I mean, how can someone think of such sappy songs with even sappier lyrics. Come on “We’re soarin’ flyin’” Who cares if you’re soarin’ flyin’? I certainly don’t”
