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.

pay off my credit card

I’m graduating from college on Saturday and trying to freaking finally become financially independent from my parents. Thankfully my card only has about $800 charged on it, but I also have to take over car payments, insurance payments, etc.


Grow a vegetable garden
Cherry tomatoes

About the closest thing I’ve had to a vegetable garden is growing cherry tomatoes in 5th grade. My grandparent’s had a garden though. Maybe my fiance and I will start one.

clean my room (read all 3 entries…)

I moved out of my apartment this morning! Three keys, a “notice to vacate” and a “vacating the premises” form later I am “homeless”! My poor car (a Beetle) is stuffed to the brim with the last of the things I’ve acquired living in that apartment for two years. At least I am that much closer to saying goodbye to this city for awhile!
