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.

Practice Yoga
It's really freaking hard.

Ok, so the family I nanny for is going to be gone for a week, so I will have slightly more free time. I should really go to a yoga class, there is a studio about two blocks from my apartment. It is so hard but it feels really good afterwards. It’s also a little intimidating because I am about as flexible as a ninety year old and I will look like a fool!

Visit Italy
It's so much fun!

I can’t wait to go back someday!

sleep in a hammock
Its lovely!

Do it!

cause a scandal
worth doing, but not very often

It is worth doing at least once I think, just for the experience.

fly in a hot air balloon
My Dream!

My dream is to fly in a hot air balloon on my birthday in Steamboat Springs with a man I love!! It would be so romantic! I won’t do it until I have a lover to do it with me.

watch less tv
Just give it away!!

I gave away my television to charity one month ago. It is really good for me, especially since this is the first time I have ever lived without roommates and I think I would be tempted to watch it while alone in my apartment. Instead I do homework, or go out, or just day dream. And I get a lot more sleep.

go skinny dipping
Should be done on a regular basis!

Though I admit it’s been a while for me, I better get on that!

pay off my debt
No $$$

After I graduate that is. One thing at a time.

Slightly less than One year to go

I know that this is a unique time in my life, and I should enjoy every minute of it, but I still can’t wait to graduate!! I can’t wait to ditch my 3 jobs, and not have to do homework when I get home from work! I can’t wait to move out of the city! I can’t wait to start earning a real income! And have free time to work towards other goals. Graduate school kicks my butt!

live in Australia

This was absolutely worth doing, I met so many people, had so much fun, and saw beautiful places. I also grew a lot more independent by living in another country on my own, even if it was just for a little while. It gave me the courage to do other things I wanted to do, like backpack in Europe!
