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.

It’s almost done!!! I am finished in just two more months, it’s so weird.
I just got a decent part-time job here, and I wish I did it wayyyy sooner, because I would have so much more money, probs could have paid back my loans. _; All well lol.


I am studying abroad now, it’s fun but it’s sooo expensive, I would just advise everyone to get a temporary job in the country they want to live in and do it that way…also if you have a significant other in your home country (like I and many of my friends do) you will be really homesick, so I advise either not having a SO or bringing your SO when you go abroad unless it’s only for a few months or something. It sucks being apart!


I got accepted to a study abroad program for a year in Tokyo! I am working hard now to make money for the adventure. C: Still have to get a visa and everything. C:


I sort of did this, but it was very unofficial. I got lucky and went with my friend to Japan to stay with her family, then I stayed with my uncle who just happens to live there, and then I got to go to a private high school for three weeks for free (and I’m in college, lol!). But I really miss Japan and I want to go back again, this time for a year. I want to go to either Osaka or Tokyo this time. Does anyone know a college with a good study abroad program in those places?


Lol, this goal will not happen for at least another year or two. I want to do this my sophomore year of college.
