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.

have a painting day in a park
care free

My roommate and I finally took a day to paint and tie dye and just relax and have fun. We layed all our stuff out in the meadow behind our apartment and just made of day of arts and crafts and bbqing. It’s always good to have a little creative time. :]

finish decorating room
finished.. for now.

I’ve got everything hung and painted somethings for pictures to go on. There’s a couple frames that have broken but besides that I’m pretty much finished! I really like how it’s turned out. I’m thinking about painting one of the walls with designs or a landscape or scripture something but for one i’m not the most amazing painter in the world and for two it’d have to be painted back to white before we move in a half a year so i haven’t decided for sure yet. as for now i’m content with how it looks.


it’s really awful. I don’t put forth enough effort on this one. In the past couple of weeks there was a couple nights i didn’t sleep at all which is ridiculous, and the rest of the nights i didn’t sleep before 5 or 6 in the morning. That’s college I guess, but I definitely want to get on a better sleeping schedule with the late late nights being more rare and random instead of a nightly occurrence.
