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.

watch Grey's Anatomy
My favorite show

I hate tv. I never turn it on. I don’t even own cable because I’d much rather read a book. But this show is awesome!! I started out watching Desperate Housewives on Sundays because a friend would start telling me the funny plots and I got hooked. But that show isn’t as good as it was the first season. Then Grey’s Anatomy started coming on and I’d stay up late to watch it. Wow! I can’t get over how hooked I am on this show. And it’s so easy to watch Patrick Dempsey.

Get my insurance license
I passed!

I just took the test on Tuesday and passed! It wasn’t extremently hard but there’s a lot of information to remember and it was hard work. But the harder you work for a goal makes it that much more wonderful when you accomplish the goal.

Love without fear
Working on

I think I may be able to cross this off my list soon. I’ve been friends with a man for 5 years and only recently have we become involved. He’s amazing. There’s no other word to use. Absolutely amazing. Everything that I always needed and never thought existed in a man, is in him. And we have a 5 year-friendship that is the foundation. Things are moving in the right direction. Admittedly, I still have some fear that the rug will be pulled out from under me and I’ll find out he’s like every other man. But it seems that as more time passes, we are cemented together even more and my fear is fading away.
