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.

mmhmmm i <3 lax

hm lacrosse fall ball is coming up soon and I’m pretty sure the captains are going to kick our asses into shape this year.
I’m a sophomore and I know whats coming and I can’t let the incoming freshmen come in and kick my ass bc that would just dissapoint everyone.
I feel like I have huge shoes to fill this year I mean HUGE. The girl I’m supposed to be replacing (that is if I get my ass into gear) was Division three defender of the year. No worries right?

If I can convince myself before I get to school that I am capable of running long distance well then maybe I won’t have to be so stressed out about that and can actually concentrate on becoming the best defender I can be. Lets hope that is enough motivation for me.


i hate running.

today its cold and rainy and the boys team have priority in the gym because they have a CAC game tomorrow. bitches won’t even win bc their record sucks ass.

while we have a winning record and could use the freakin gym but no. we have to go outside. in the rain and cold. and practice.

i ran yesterday and it sucked. i will run today and it will suck more. this goal SUCKS.

this won't be easy

went running today on my own and it sucked.
big time.
i’ll consider this a “long-time” goal because its going to take me a looong time.
