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.

return all my borrowed items

my dad always sends me home with food and always forget to give them back. also, my sister let me borrow some of her games a long time ago and i still have them.

be able to say what i feel

i’m glad i’m not the only one out there that blames why i am the way i am on my astrological sign (thats for jajay24). i happen to fit the part of a scorpio very well. being able to tell people what i’m feeling has always been a big problem for me. there are some things people do or say that get me so angry i start shaking, but for some reason i always keep me mouth shut.
recently, though, i’ve been getting better. it feels good to put in my two cents.

learn to drive
didn't learn to drive until i was 20

i was afraid to drive for a long time. the fact that there were so many things you need to pay attention to was intimidating. after practicing many times on the streets that were less busy, or driving around very late at night when no one else was on the road, i learned that most of that stuff comes to you like second nature. the rest comes with more practice.
it felt great to finally get the test over with and find out that i passed. now i’m not sure what i would do if i didn’t know how to drive.


I want to:
