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.

be one of the undead for good resons

I want to become a vampire because I feel like I don’t belong where I am right now…in the ranks of the humans. I feel like I have a place to be, somewhere else…no, I’m not some suicidal emo freak, I’m well-loved, my parents are perfect, and we are a loving family. I just feel misplaced. I’m twelve and I want to become a vampire. So bad.

to find and hang out with vampires

Would it be possible to find vampires that live in Thomasville, Georgia? Seriously. I really want to meet a vampire face-to-face, but I am only 12 (lol) and have parents who are sticks-in-the-muds.

meet people who want to become vampires

I want to become a vampire because I just don’t feel like I’m supposed to be human. I feel like I belong somewhere else.
I’ve dreamt of being a vampire for years, often staying awake until six in the morning and then sleeping all day. School, of course, keeps me from actually sleeping that often, as I have to wake up at five and I have to train myself to sleep like that.
Just like my username says, I am only twelve years of age.
