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.

learn to drive
Driving looks so easy and unintimidating in the suburban/rural areas, like in the movies.

I live in the suburbs too, but it’s a pretty busy area and so close to the city. I live just a 15 min. walk from the city part and have worked in city areas. In the city, I hate the ridiculous traffic, the lack of parking except for metered parking which gets crowded so easily, the lack of clarity that goes in labeling the buildings as you have to search high and low to see their address numbers. Like a typical New Yorker, I pretty much walk anywhere when I need to go and within a few minutes I get to my destination like that because all the options are so close with few spaces in between. The public transport is close too, which I take sometimes. Work, on the other hand, is too far to walk to and I’d have to wake up 45 min. earlier than usual to take public transit. I’d rather just learn to drive and be comfy with it rather than relying on my parents and my SO to drop me off and pick me up like they do now so that I can save that total of 1 h. and 30 min of commute. It’s getting more embarrassing than before because of my age.

In the movies, people driving in areas where it’s one or two lanes, few cars, open space, few buildings, etc. to go pretty much anywhere and everywhere. If that were my area, I would’ve been driving since I was 16, but I’m 24 and still don’t have the darn license. It’s embarrassing. The lessons are so highly priced- 4 lessons for nearly 400 bucks!

lose my virginity
before the age of 22. Well, before it was before the age of 21, but I was still caught up in

finding a job; enrollment and dropping out of a bachelor’s program; body image blues; very rare good-looking guys or average-looking guys to like enough to have sex with; STD/I/V consciousness; and family getting tangled up in my goals. However, I’ve finaly lost my virginity on New Year’s Day 2008 to my supervisor of my first “real” job, which is before my 22nd birthday. We had vaginal and oral sex again several times after that over the span of several weeks along with a few breast sex and small rim job sessions…

have sex with a stranger
If only unprotected.

I would have sex with a stranger but after we both get screened to see what’s lurking around and even these checkups aren’t thorough. I’d like to do it unprotected but damn that’s way risky. I may have to opt for a condom. Right now I am going to check to get to know about sexual history a bit and when I’m ready someday, I’ll meet up with some hot guy at the mall or grocery store or even off the street.
