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.

What more can i say

Freedom ro roam, anytime, anywhere you please.. or just plain be more independent. I pith my friends my age who’s parents wont let them get theirs.

Know that i drastically changed someone's life for the better
hey, thanks to you...

How good would you feel inside if someone came up to you to thank you from the bottom of their heart because u helped them and you didn’t even know it. Maybe a piece of advice, make u were just nice, maybe u scolded the person.. but it has a great after effect.. maybe u saved his/her life, stopped then from taking drugs.. maybe just steered then in the right path.. its nice to know u did good.

get it right and you'll remember it forever..

Learn to speak chinese
Bad words dont count

i’m half chinese, half indian. and obviously the first 2 questions ppl who meet me ask are can you speak chinese or indian? unfortunately the answer is no. =( if its any consolation i DO know how to refer to your mother in a very rude wey or describe how ugly a guy was in a club or tell someone to fuck off! ahaha.. but i want MORE!, i wanna be able to have a conversation with my granma! its shames me that she knows more english than i know chinese!.. and she like came from china.

Try to understand women
Women.. cant live with them, cant live without them

What is it with women? are they all crazy or only the ones that i’ve been so unfortunate to meet? a string of miserable relationships and topped off by the most recent one that hurt me so bad that i’ve never been happier! i know right now ure rolling ure eyes thinking i’m mental hahaa… u see i was hung up on this girl for almost a year we dated for a couple of months then we broke up cozz i had to national service..(she moved on.. but i didn’t get very far), i have always been there for her to comfort her when some bastard breaks her heart, but the truth is it was killing me to see her n know that she wasn’t mine. anyway… a few times i felt like drifting away but i couldn’t bear to do that to her cozz i knew she would break down. but one day it all changed.. i found out that she cheated on me adn tried to deny it right to my face!.. finally she broke down n told me everything.. i never talked to her since. People say that finding that right person will bring you such joy… but i’ve been going tru hell for so long that i never new that LOSING one person could bring me such joy. Cozz now i can finally enjoy my single life.. =)
