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.

get a puppy
Nothing as cute

My heart melts whenever I see this picture; this is my (now-gone) puppy Lexie, with my (also now-gone) kitty Cielo.

Become a vegetarian

For me, being a vegetarian isn’t about the animals or mad cow; it’s about being healthy, not just in the body but in the mind too. I was a vegetarian for a while, but it’s hard when your family is not, so I’ve kinda drifted away. As soon as I move out, I’ll be a vegetarian again.

float the Boise River
Sooooo much fun!

So, today I floated the river with my friends for the first time. It was exhausting, but so so so much fun. Next week we’re floating again dressed as pirates XD

spend an entire day watching the extended version of all three Lord of the Rings movies back-to-back-to-back
So fun, and so draining

It was New Years Eve, and a couple of friends came over to watch all three of these great movies. It was fun to do, and I’ll do it again (I think it’ll be our NYE tradition), but it’s soooo draining to watch them back-to-back-to-back. I did it again in DC. ^^’ Lattes and Wild Cherry Pepsi are my friends when watching this XD

Host a dinner party
one of my best nights

I invited friends over and I showed them how to make their own sushi. When we all made our rolls, I brought out the fresh-made miso soup and gyoza. They all loved it, they want me to host another one. I love cooking, it’s like a drug for me.

build my own computer
my dad rocks

My dad taught and helped me build my home PC; it was a great experience for me to bond with my dad and learn about computers. It was such a great feeling.

I recently got a laptop for school, maybe I’ll be able to completely build it by myself.

get a labrador retriever

I used to have a yellow lab, named Lexie. Best dog ever. Nothing says love like a labrador. I’ll never have another dog like her, but one day I will get to experience this kind of love again.

go skinny dipping

I was visiting a friend in Maryland, and at midnight, we went to her friends and skinny dipped in her pool. Very awesome.

graduate from high school

There were so many times I wanted to drop out, but like a soldier, I kept at it. I’m so glad I did. It’s a chapter in my life that I’m glad is closed, and I’m so happy I stuck with it to the end.

Kids, stay in school

go back to college

I took a year off after I graduated high school to just work and get money for college. I was tired of teachers, books, school in general. I think I made the right choice, and I am going back in less than a couple of weeks. It’s been a nice year without school, but now it’s time to go back to the classroom.

grow my hair long

I used to have really long hair, all the way to my waist. Quite by accident, it got cut to my shoulders. I like it how it is, it’s fun to play with, but I hope I can grow it back again.

live in seattle

I love love LOVE this city! I am very much a rain person, and it’s got EXCELLENT seafood! I will hopefully transfer here to the Art Institute and room with one of my best friends in a year or two.

publish my graphic novel

I have so many ideas, it’s just tough getting them all in stories and getting it out there. My comic will be great though.
