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.

play more with my ferret
need to spend more time with Watanuki

I want to spend more time playing with Watanuki, even if I’m feeling tired, ‘cause I know he feels neglected. :( He’s such a lively animal, I feel bad for him staying in his cage for hours and hours while I’m not around. I also want to take him out for walks more often and overall take better care of him.

be happy on my birthday

oddly, I rarely feel happy on my birthday. this year I felt pretty miserable. gonna try to change that in 2009!

get a passport

I have to get a new one ASAP. Need to stop making excuses for being so damn lazy & go fill out the papers. :/


reading Bernard Werber’s “Us, Gods”
I like it so far, though his “The Empire of the Angels” was way better.

spend more time with my sister

I’m 22 and about to start my own family. My little sister Nika was born 6 months ago. She lives with my dad and his second wife in another country, and I’ve only seen her once. She’s the cuttest baby ever. I want to make an effort to visit them more often and spend as much time with her as I possibly can.
