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.

wake up when my alarm clock goes off (read all 2 entries…)
New alarm clock, New Year!

My new alarm clock has a new cool beep instead of the annoying buzz from my old one, although that doesnt make me want to get out of bed any more.



Purchase a Mr. Coffee Iced Tea maker (read all 2 entries…)
Yummy Sweet Iced Tea

I actually didnt buy one for myself, but my mom got me one for Christmas :)
You can get them at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for only 19.99, and if you have a twenty percent off coupon it comes out to be $16 (plus tax)



grow my hair really long
Worth it but ready to cut it, I think!

I have grown my hair out for almost four years, and well down my back and almos to my butt, but hard to manage all the time. The time washing it, blow drying it, straightening it, then keeping it brushed all day. A lot of hassel, but It surely is beautiful. I may just cut it a little, not too short!
