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.

Write an essay and finish it a week before its deadline
Someday i'll do this right

Everytime i have a major paper due i’m writing it and printing it up to the last available minute. For once i want to finish an essay well before the due date so i’m not stressing. But alas i’m a procrastinator through and through. I wonder how i made it this close to graduation in the first place. if you count my junior year bing my 6th in college close.

wear a corset more often

going okay so far. first i’m doing this because i’m playing with the idea of getting into straight lacing. also i enjoy the look and want to use it to work on my posture and control my hunger.
I only have one corset atm that’s good for this so i’m only wearing it every other day to give it time to air out in between.
it is quite comfortable the only time wearing it is any hassle is when i have to bend down-which is all but physically impossible :p


I want to:
