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.

do acid
I love Lucy.

And hate her all at the same time. lol
I’ve had a bad trip. That shit is NOT fun. Two tabs of acid is no bueno. Especially in a place you don’t really trust.
I plan on doing it again. Acid is a good friend of mine, and up until recently, I didn’t realize that I needed to treat it with more respect. I was always afraid I’d be betrayed by her, but I realize now that if you expect betrayal, that’s what you’ll get.
My friend and I are going to go to a park and fry. It’s going to be fun. This time Lucy and I are going to be best friends. :)

do shrooms

It was incredible!!!!
I felt completely at one with my body. Everything, I felt EVERYTHING! We went to see Alice In Wonderland (cliche, I know) and it was just fantastic. Definately something I plan on doing again. Not something you should do surrounded by a bunch of people. I kept laughing at everything, and time was SO slow. Everything was bright, and it’s just a beautiful experience.

find myself (read all 2 entries…)
Wow...who am I really?

Cause there are days that go by where even I don’t know the answer to this question. I just find myself wondering why I am where I am. Do I really even want to be there? I need to build confidence in myself. I’ve realized the issue isn’t not knowing who I am at ALL. It’s that I don’t like what I am. I really want to improve myself. I feel like I can be a better person.

See all entries ...
