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.

stop having crushes
Untitled

Yeah, i’m attracted to this guy at work. It sucks because he’s got a girlfriend already. So I kinda need to get over it, like, today! Me and him are cool with each other and I wouldn’t ever pursue him. I’m not a bitch like that and I wouldn’t want some girl pursuing my man. Crushes are so pointless and I know this one will pass within a week’s time. I’m not too worried, but it’s still annoying. I’m a sexy girl, dammit. lol. I need someone that realizes that too :).



go to the bar only once a week (read all 3 entries…)
Untitled

So I moved to Jackson and I realized that there’s not much to do in this town. Only going out to the bar once a week kind of came naturally. It’s for the best because I think most of my weight gain was from all the beer I drank in college. Also, I have more money in my pocket.



get a better car (read all 2 entries…)
I had to put Pink Betsie down

Yeah, so my old car, a ‘94 Escort that I call Pink Betsie, was on its dying days. So I traded her in for a 2006 Honda Accord. I love this car! Finally, a car that doesn’t stall on me at stoplights!
