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.

stop drinking

The thing is that I don’t have a problem with drinking. I like it occasionally. I just don’t do good things after I’ve had a few…..and that’s the problem.

travel the US on a bicycle to live out my mothers dream

I don’t have the greatest parents but I would do anything for them….I once read in my mothers yearbook at the library that she wanted to travel the US on a bike. She never got to. So I thought it wasn’t a bad Idea.

go back to school

I quit high school in the 10th grade. I’ve gone for my GED 3 times (not the test)...classes. I end up quitting. I really wanna be something more than I am and I won’t get that without an education.

Trust Ryan

This is the man that I LOVE…I want to spend the rest of my life with him. He is a great man with a flaw…lol…no one’s perfect:)

I wanna dream and it actually means something

Have u ever heard the Godsmack song..Serenity..? Well his line goes like this…Where do we go when we just don’t know and how do we relight the flame when it’s cold why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing and when will we learn to control. All Godsmack songs will mean something to everyone

be happy

I guess this falls along with just about anything else. I just wanna be happy…don’t u?

To live instead of exist
I am not invisible....

I just feel like I’m here for nothing. I want to do things with my life and can’t seem to get there. How do u prove the truth. How do u actually trust someone. I feel I’m not trusted and it’s frustrating….I wanna live instead of exist
