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.

Go to a baseball game
Colorado Rockies Vs. San Fransisco Giants

I went with friends from Camp and it was amazing. Mind blowing even. We just don’t have sports on that scale in the UK.

I now also know who Barry Bonds is.

That game was Badass.

The tickets (In the Rockpile) were only $4.00, Yet a beer was $6.00 and Skittles cost $3.50 a bag.

Totally worth it.

start over somewhere new
Running away is sometimes the answer.

I relocated to Wales (intentionally) for university.

I lost friends from home
I made new friends
I grew distant from my best friends
I grew closer to my mother
I got over a past love with a girl
I fell in love another girl, Then had to get over her.

Basically, It helps solve your current problems. But they follow you wherever you go.
