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 hope my friends would agree

Friendship, like any relationship, is ongoing and neverending.

I guess all I can do is love my friends and try to show them that love as best I can. Yes, I may faulter but I never forget, ever.

And whether or not it needs to be said, you are all my friends, so the above is for you.

My friend has..

...been putting me up at his place for the last 4 weeks(!!) while I look for a new appartment. I’ve been trying to think of what I can do to thank or repay him. He made a joke about how he had to think of 4 restaurants that he wanted to visit because after the first week I had taken him and his girlfriend out. But a restaurant a week doesn’t really seem to make up for his help and understanding.

The last two weekends...

...I’ve been helping a friend get her new appartment ready to move into: preparing to paint, painting, etc. And this coming weekend, I’ll help with the actual move. This is her her first appartment and experience living alone. She has a few apprehensions about the whole experience and I’m just happy to be there to help because she’s been there when I needed help.


Yesterday, I called a friend whom I haven’t seen for about a year. Actually, I was calling him back. Anyway, I’m going to go see him this weekend.

sometimes they're all you got.

Being far from “home”, I don’t think I’ve kept contact well with friends. And even the friends I have here, I don’t think I’ve been good with. Maybe this is just a result of being somewhere new.

But for someone who values friendship and good friends, I find my behavious unacceptable. I just hope my friends are good ones and can forgive me.
