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.

meet serj tankian
Oh what I wouldn't do...

I would just love to meet Serj one day. I can just picture it…One day I’ll be walking around in NYC, chillin…smoking a blunt, when all of the sudden, there he is…chillin by a tree in Central Park reading a book or something. I’d walk up to him and I wouldn’t make a scene, cause that’s pretty gay, and chat it up a lil bit, ask him for a quick pic w/ me and an autograph…tell him if he’s not busy we could go get a drink or whatever…he just seems like he could be anybody’s best friend. He’s probably the nicest guy in Rock…next to Dave Grohl. And it’s so funny how the both of them ended up coming together and touring this year…the 2 nicest guys in rock & roll!

keep a clean house
Get rid of the clutter!!

Clutter is the worst!!! Get rid of clutter and do not be a pack-rat! Yes, everything MAY be sentimental…take a picture of those things, put them in a nice album and then…GET RID OF THE ITEMS! Put it this way, if you haven’t seen those old pots & pans in about 2 or 3 years….you don’t need them now! Same goes for everything else.
Another tip is make sure you clean up after yourself & others right after you finish eating (breakfast, lunch, dinner, etc..) If you wait, you’ll get lazy and the dishes and garbage will sit around…no good. Just get it out of the way and you won’t have to worry about it later on : )

Be happy with what I have
My crazy, but beautiful family : )

I love my family to pieces! My hubby is the best ever and my kids are the cutest lil dudes to walk the planet (hey, I’m their Mom, of course I think that! hahaha)
But there’s so many other things that I’m not happy about, like not being able to buy them things here & there….I don’t mean spoil them, but it would be nice to buy them a lil something here & there and we’re just not in the position to do that right now : (
Also, being able to pay the bills would be great. That way I wouldn’t have to worry whether we’re going to have a place to live next month or not. Then there’s the not being able to do anything or go anywhere on the weekends. I love my hubby’s and my family, but I don’t want to see them every weekend. I want to be able to take the kids to the movies or hey, even grocery shopping would be awesome LOL Yes, it’s that bad.
Last, but certainly not least, I’d love to be able to help my parents out – financially. As it stands right now, they do not have a retirement plan, they’re behind on their bills, they have tons of medical bills that they’re paying off and the worst of the worst – after almost having the house paid off, they took out a 2nd mortgage on the house, not for them, but for my selfish brother, who needs “help” running a bar that he opened up. He’s supposed to be paying the majority of the mortgage on his own and he’s screwing them over. I need to get myself into the position where I can get them back on their feet. After everything they’ve done for me and my family, They did it out of love for their child. Any loving parent would. But any loving child wouldn’t take the risk of losing their parent’s only home and not do a damn thing about it!
