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.

Make new friends
I need to get out more

Yeah, I really need to get out more. Going back to school this semester will help with this a lot I think. My boyfriend’s friends are great and I would be friends with a couple of them even if my bf and I weren’t together, but it’s not the same. I’ve lived here for over a year now and only have a couple of my “own” friends, both of whom I met through work. After the hustle of the holidays I’m going to look into some volunteer work with the humane society and local elementary schools which should help too. And I miss going to shows. There are several local venues right nearby and they have local bands all the time, but I never go. I really need to start making some more time to get out and live life. I miss that.

stop nagging
I guess I really AM a nag

I wish I could say I didn’t do this. I don’t normally think of myself as a nag. I’m not horrible, but this definitely needs to stop. My boyfriend puts up with so much bullshit nagging from me it’s ridiculous. And honestly it’s the only thing about our relationship that still needs some major work. Well, the ball is in my court when it comes to this because he is one of the most easy-going people I know and would never nag me like I do him. I’m going to work really hard on catching myself before I say any of the “Did you do…” or “Why did/didn’t you do…” because when it comes down to it 98% of the stuff I nag him about doesn’t really even matter and doesn’t upset me either. Maybe the reason I didn’t see myself as a nag is because I don’t nag because I’m disappointed or upset with him. I do it for no reason at all, other than just spurting out anything and everything that pops into my head to say.

keep my apartment clean
Marking Done

Since we moved into our new apartment this has been going great. It’s not that I’m a sloppy person and even my previous apartment wasn’t filthy or anything, but I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to things like this. But I can honestly say that I’ve been keeping our new place looking excellent. My boyfriend has been helping out a lot too which is wonderful because I don’t feel so overwhelmed. It’s amazing what a difference just having a nice place can make. Our old apartment was nothing special and was horrible for the money we were paying to live there. The place we have now is a bit more expensive, but we got an extra bedroom, a patio, a washer and dryer, and about 400 square feet extra total for our money. Definitely do this! It changed my whole outlook on everything because I’m so much happier coming home to a nice, clean apartment.
