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.

travel the world

ok so i guess i kindqa already have traveled the world

Visited: London, Paris, Venice, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Lichtenstein.

But that was all over a sixteen day period the summer before my junior year of high school for a a music program

Now dont get me wrong that was an amazing opportunity and I’m so glad I was able to do it.

But it was just the tip of the iceburg…I had always been interested in travel but once I did this I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life traveling to faraway lands

Get my Mike to just say Hi

So Mike is my crush

We hang out all the time in a small group (4 people…and two of those four are dating each other…so basically its a couple and then me and mike hanging)

He has never said a single word to me not even hey just silence

Apparantly as soon as I go home he turns into the biggest talker of all time

Mike has never had a girlfriend and is supposedly really shy and kinda afraid of girls…or so says his best friend

All I want is for him to say Hi to me because with as much as we hang out…at least once a week…one would think he would be polite and at least hi its not like he’s commiting or anything or im gonna bite his head off if he talks to me

Also, I come off as a fairly friendly person…I’m not abnormally bitchy for a 17yr old girl and I do say hi to him and he just nods…who the fuk nods and doesnt talk


become more self confident on the inside

Ok, I’m a pretty bubbly optimistic person. I’m always the one to make my friends smile when they’re down and listen to them when they’re feeling low. The only problem is I have to noone to do this for me so I usually go to bed crying every night. I would really like to just feel on the inside how I come across to other people. I don’t understand how everybody sees a strong, confident, optimistic, happy-go-lucky, funny person when on the inside I feel worthless and alone


I want to:
