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.

make my mom special brownies

it’d be really really funny and be great pay back for her thinking i’m a pot head even though i’m not. ;)

Make sure everyone that i love, knows i love them.

it’s important.

Be myself

as audioslave says, “be yourself is all you can do” but it’s hard to be yourself all the time. but i’mma try.

Be able to vocalize my thoughts in a way that makes sense

i suck at talking, being able to explaing what i’m thinking and all the “why’s”. i need to change that. cuz i got a lot of good thoughts up in my head.

be loved
i've been loved...

but i can’t say i loved him back. and it felt… wrong. It made me feel like crap. Crazy, right? somebody loves me and i only like them and i feel horrible? well, it’s true. i want to be loved by someone i truly love with my entire heart.

Stay awake for 24 hours
I've done this about a million and a half times. no joke

this happens all the time, seriously. though, sometimes it’s on accident though, because i have insomniac-ish nights. but other times, i’m with friends and it’s awesome and all you need is to drink a lot of energy drinks and run around outside, it’s easiest if you don’t stop moving.

go on a road trip with no predetermined destination
this is like my dream.

i want to use like.. a spinner from a board game and just go in that direction.. and see everthing there is to see.

also, i want to go on a road trip all allong to coast of california, i’ve been through parts of it and it’s the most beautiful place i’ve ever been. but that’s obviously a road trip with a predetermined destination.

Get a tattoo
one that i really want

there’s one i really want…

it’d be this quote, “She was looking for a place to stand and I wanted a place to fly” with a couple birds’ silhouettes around it, about the size of a fist. i sketched it out once and i think it looks awesome. i don’t want to get it yet because i want to make sure i for sure i want it. i love that quote though.

visit all 50 states
I'm half way there!
