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.

get a college degree (read all 3 entries…)
last semester

of my A.A. degree!

decided to go to law school, so I’ll be replacing one degree with another :)

learn to play hand drum
First step

I signed up to take a hand drumming class next semester.

Yes, it’s actually good for real college credit, lol

get my ears pierced

I finally did it!
I had no real reason to put it off so long, but I did it once when I was younger and let them close up, and I’ve always kind of wanted them redone. I’m just too damn cheap to pay someone to do it.

So a friend of mine brought me some self-piercers she got from working at claire’s and I did it myself.

...but I decided it would be a great idea to get smashed so it wouldn’t hurt and I wound up with a 12 HOUR HANGOVER. Not even joking. It sucked so bad.

at least I have pretty ear studs to show for it, though :)

See all entries ...
