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.

pay off my student loans

Sometimes it troubles me to think that I’m only a sophomore in college, and I’m already 35K in the red. It’s not like I don’t get good grades (my GPA is 3.4), I just can’t get any scholarships and my school cost nearly 50k to attend each year. By the time I graduate, I expect to be 80k in debt.

I’m gonna have to land a good ass job to get rid of this shit…

lose weight (read all 8 entries…)
Soo effing pissed....but on the bright side...

So I feel off over the summer. I played tennis with my friend, in an effort to keep up, but I failed (somewhat). I didn’t gain back substantial weight, but some of my clothes feel a little more snug.

I’ve started once again this past Sunday. Sweat my arse off on the ellipitcal! Today I did some strength training (my arms and legs are sore as shyt!) I feel good again. I see everything playing out in my mind and I’m determined to get there.

lose weight (read all 8 entries…)


So I finally dragged myself to the joke of a gym a couple blocks away from my residence. As I expected, there wasn’t much equipment so I had to improvise many of my exercises with dumbells. Everything was almost perfect again; sweat beads on my forehead, the reflection of myself pumping in the mirror, the clinking sounds of metal.

Then it rained…. and I didn’t have an umbrella.

BUT since I had already sweat away my youth for 45 minutes, I ran back home in the rain as happy as can be! When I got home, I delightfully sipped on my protein shake and watched the lightning flicker outside. Today was definitely a good day…
