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.

I guess I will make a cuss jar.

And I will put in a dime everytime I cuss.
Then I will donate it to a cause I don’t agree with.

The republican party or something.
Who knows.

study abroad, in England
This is something...

...I am very serious about doing.
I hope to go this summer.
I am going to get advised in about a week at my current college, so I will ask about it then.
Luckily, my family is supporting me and offering to pay for it.
(Which is a good thing ‘cause I have NO money of my own)

There are a lot of things holding be back though…
I don’t know what I want to study, where I want to go, cost, ect…

Any suggestions or words or wisdom are welcome!

mix mentos and diet pepsi (read all 2 entries…)

...I did it.
And it didn’t work.
I messed it up.
The opening was too wide, so my mentos got jammed.
I’ll have to try again.

See all entries ...


I want to:
