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.

Don't eat fast food
I was addicted

... now whenever I get close to one, it stinks sooooo bad!



Learn to sew my own clothes!
...too bad I can't keep up!

Now that I know the how-to I can’t stop starting clothes,
getting to a good point with them and then leaving them behind
when all I need is a small detail like buttonholes and such…

But all in all definitely an interesting thing to learn!



register some books on BookCrossing.com and release them
yeah.

Love reading for free…



live in italy
...a REAL choice

I was born here. Here is Italy. Then I flew to Toronto, Canada,
for 4 years, after Amsterdam for a few months. Well. I came
back.
Being born here wasn’t much of a choice, but living here is.
Definitely worth doing.



Learn Portoguese
One more.

I was born in Italy. Speak Italian.
Raised by a Canadian mom. Speak English.
Went to languages school. Speak French.
Needed something easy to make up credit at University. Speak Spanish.

But what I really want to know is Portoguese. Just one more.



Get better at sewing my own clothes
If I could just finish....

....what I start.
I started a sewing class this past winter, and I have finished
that one for sure. Now I have something like 3 pair of pants, 3 skirts, 1 shirt and a summer dress STILL TO FINISH UP! And loads
of fantabulous fabric I can’t help buying. I mean, I love to
design clothing, buy fabric for it, create patterns, cut the
fabric, put the pieces together… and try it out. Once it is
all ok and all I need are finishing touches, I leave it all
there, zips to sew on, buttonholes to make, hems to finish.
....do I have to hire help?????
