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.

try shrooms

I really want some shrooms. It’s hard as fuck to find them in the Bronx though.

Quit Smoking

I just went cold turkey. My last cigarette was probably 2 1/2 months ago,and I don’t miss it at all. What made me quit was actually marijuana, because I learned that if you smoke cigarettes enough they kill your taste buds and sense of smell. This would of made me not able to appreciate all of the flavors of cannabis. But don’t think I just gave up one addiction for another. I’ll go days without smoking pot without any cravings, while cigarettes had me jonesing after an hour.

My advice would be to find something that you love, something that would benefit from you not smoking, and choose between the two. would you rather smoke or have white teeth, or nice smelling hair, or better lung capacity, or etc.

find my soul mate

I need to find a girl that has these qualities:

into video games, anime, and other nerdy things
smokes pot
loves music
is an individual, and not influenced by fads
has a sense of humor(beyond dane cook)
open minded
aware of worldly issues, besides stupid, celebrity bullshit

one day…
