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.

buy new clothes
I need some new clothes

I have literally no clothes, I have 2 pairs of black skinnies 1 pair is ripped to shreds the other pair has a hole in their bum, I have two other pair of jeans, but one are a horrible colour and my others are jeggings, nuff said. Summers good though as I have thoouusands of cut offs, but I’m english so I hardlyget to wear them
All I have is hand me down jumpers that I sleep in, I have basically no money, but I’ve recently got a job, and I need to vow to buy clothes with my new money instead of a. buying books, b. getting drunk, c. buying fish, and d. buying records. I need to get my priorities straight, I intend to buy some jeans by next week.

get a job (read all 3 entries…)

Just came back from work :). It’s only a cleaning job in a pub, but it’s pretty sound, I can have my blue hair and tattoos and get to just work in my scruffs. Plus I don’t have to interact with people much apart from my boss who is really lovely. It’s five pound an hour, which is above minimum wage. Sahweet :)
