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.

find a place to live

my aunt and uncle offered to let me stay with them so i moved our of the dorms thinking it would be great. They had recently moved down there and i thought it was fate, i’d get to save some money and live with family. Plus it was only going to be for 4 months while i finished school. Well 1 month later i came home to find a for lease sign in the front yard. They didn’t even tell me before they posted it for the world. Now i have no where to go and think i’m going to drop out of school and move back home

Have a baby

I’m in nursing school right now but have always thought that i should have kids by 27, and its coming fast! Not sure if i should finish school then do it, or will i want to start working first.. i feel like theres always a reason to wait, maybe we should just do it and let everything fall into its place…. I really want to start our family, I just want to know we will be financially ready, ya know?

stop being so bossy

I have a very bossy nature, i feel the need to be in control and to control thoes around me. Even for the smallest thing, i think i get a sense of power by getting people to see it my way and changing their mind when i disagree with them. I feel bad for my husband, he is so sweet and hates to fight about stupid things, while i am just the opposite and feel the need to fight over every aspect of life!!! help


I want to:
