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.

The Human Pretzel

I’ve tried to master the art of twisting yourself into an oddly shaped and unnatural looking pretzel. Not that I don’t love pretzels… the soft ones you can buy at the mall?? God, by mouth is watering right now. But becoming a human pretzel doesn’t exactly hold the same effect on my salivating gland.

The one time I tried to take a class, I fell over. But the good news was that I took the smug blonde pretzel chick down with me (LG)... It was a sad story. We don’t like to talk about it

read all Virginia Woolf's books

So far I’ve read 1/2 of Night and Day (Yes, not one of her most popular, but I figured if I start with the worst I won’t be disappointed on my way up the list) And though I’m no book critic, I don’t think it’s that bad—> I actually really like it

read all of Jane Austen's novels

Sense And Sensibility- Read it
Pride And Prejudice- Read it
Mansfield Park
Emma- Reading
Northanger Abbey
