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.

drink more water
I need to drink

Hi! I think it is time for me to be more healthier by drinking more water instead of Tea, and sugar based drinks D: Reason… Well I want to drink more water to cleanse out the things in my body more often than having sugar water to do it. Also, I just want a healthy body that only wants to eat and drink healthy. Also, I want a cool bottle like sigg D: (Don’t laugh at me lol) I want something to contain water that can be cold, cool, and very refreshing after doing rigorous things. Plus, I drink a lot of tea daily… mostly green tea(real chinese tea bags) lol… at least 2 cups a day, and 1 cup of chamomile tea for the past couple of days.

Be paid to read books
I love reading, and I want a job/side job like this too

Hi everyone! I also want to try this as well? Is there a way to do this though? Well, if so can anyone help me? If so, please contact me through private messages or leave comments! I would be happy to hear from someone here who likes reading =]

graduate from college
Life sucks, but it's time to be serious

Well guys… I am a college freshmen (2nd semester), and my parents are paying 22k this year.. and of course because of me.. I caused my family to poor stated, and I want to get better because of the money and time they spent on me! I feel bad when I think about the money that they used on me… worked so hard for, and such. Problem was… last year I was not able to get a loan, because of my late birthday (nov 1st). So in the end my parents paid for it, and first semester I slacked off a bit, but I survived, but I am still not satisfied with my “B’s”, but I thought it could of been worse. However, from this semester onward I will make grades around A’s, and get a loan yearly and make my parents proud of me and graduate with a awesome life/job ahead of me! I want to graduate with a master within the next 3-4 years! I want to speed up my education for my parents and make them feel proud of me and make sure they did not waste their money on me ever again!
