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 a photographer

Photography is something have only picked up just recently, but I think I’ve fallen in love with it.

I used to dream of becoming a journalist for Blender or Spin or some magazine like that, but now I think I’d like to be both a photographer and a journalist.

Photography means a lot to me, and I love looking and taking pictures. I want all my pictures to be of good quality and mean something. I want to take pictures of people, of humans and the human condition. I think being a photojournalist would be the proper thing for me, but really anything to do with pictures is right for me.

fall in love again (read all 2 entries…)
Once again

I had posted this as a goal previously, one that I thougt I’d reached. However, now that I’ve matured and looked at that relationship from afar, I realize it wasn’t really love.

Anyways, that was a while ago, and now I’m moving on. I want to give love another shot. I don’t want to hear the word and think “fuck love!” I want to be optimistic again, and try to put the past behind me.

I think that I am one of those people who is really capable of love, but gets crushed on a lot. I know this is nothing to rush, you can’t rush a thing like this, but I want to feel it again and for real this time.

dye my hair
Hot Hot Me

Okay, so after my big breakup with my longtime beau, Cristian, in February I needed many changes to feel better.

I had already gotten permanent red highlights in my hair and I had dyed it red a few times, but it wasn’t enough.

I decided I want a bigger change, so I bought some ManicPanic dye, Hot Hot Pink, and I went crazy.
I still have this color in, it’s great. I’ve gotten numerous compliments, and questions and I have never felt so pretty or original in my life.

Everyone must try this at least once in their life.
