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.

no quiero escuela!!!

rrreaaalllyyy take advantage of this new year :]
my new years resolutions......

im thinking of these while im writing this so bear with me haha. but i had some ideas. i think. so here we go.

1. LOVE, not the physical kind, hah, but love! And that’s for everyone and all kinds of love too, not ONLY the relationship kind, (that one is mostly for me) but for the world, because, I don’t think the world gets that we’re all people in the end. God, Allah, Jesus, Moses, Hanukkah, Xmas, hell even Kwanza its all the same. GAZA STRIP??? SERIOUSLY? ridiculous….. they need love.
2. GRADES, because there’s just something about high school that doesn’t make you wanna do ANYTHINNGGG when it comes to grades. I can do it at least once or twice this year, if not this semester, than the next one, and the first of junior year. we got this.
3. FREEDOM, or in other words, to be able to DRIVE!!! WITH A LICENSE!!! damn. It’s fucking about time.
4. JOB, hopefully at whole foods?? yah yah??? who knows. I need one. I need some clothes.
5. EXCERCISE, alot more.ALOT MORE. not that i need to lose weight or anything. i just feel better after running and shit. and yoga! haha. i know i know, its everyones resolution. but hell. everyone has to have this resolution because we are FUCKING AMERICA people. we’re fat and lazy and we have to drive everywhere. and if we walk, we get shot by 18th street people. well actually parents just think you’ll get raped even if u live in the FREAKIN hollywood riviera. stupid stupid stupid
6. GET OUT, of the house more. Don’t get me wrong, i get out alot. But I mean, like everyday, do something. Houses are cool and all, and I mean you spend alot of your life in them, but IIIII MEAN c’mon. I wanna go out more. Breathe the air, feed the fish, the whole ten yards.

oh and last but not least…..7.DO THEM, all 7 of them haha.

a mac>

Yes, a mac. I’ve been wanting to get a mac for awhileeeee because my dell laptop is slowing down and I want to be able to record music and use photoshop and such. I know you can do this on a PC but macs just make it easier. I’ve been doing alot of chores around the house including painting a room- so I believe my mom is going to put some dinero into because damn, those things are expensive.

Take one picture a day as a way to document my life (read all 2 entries…)

So far I am on day 4 and today is the 5th. I already have today’s photo ready to be printed tonight. I won’t say I “finished” this goal until I reach the 30th day… when I know I’ll be commited.

Take one picture a day as a way to document my life (read all 2 entries…)

I feel like sometimes life is going to fast. I know I’m only 14, but if you think about it… thats a big fraction of my life that is now a memory. I’ve decided that starting tomorrow I am going to take a picture everyday of my life and keep them. I don’t have enough pictures of friends, life… and they dont necessarily have to be gooooooddd pictures. Simple things, like- take a picture of what I look through everyday… my bedroom window! It might be so different looking say, 20 years from now and I might not remember what it looks like. Or, take a picture of my friend doing something that she does everyday. Like—Amanda. She plays volleyball really well. I want to take a picture of her playing it because she could turn out to be pro or she might stop next year and look at the picture and laugh! Some days I could take really cool artsie pictures of things and life. But in the end… I’ll want to remember the remaining last month of my 14th year and my 15th year in life.

Write down everything I eat for a week

I’ve noticied that I don’t eat the best and that if I keep track of this… I’ll be more aware of it and hopefully create a pattern for the future. Cheer me on!
