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.

clean my room
It's getting there...

My uncleanable room is almost clean!! Well, it’s like normal person messy, which is a lot better than before. I organized my DVDs and some of my clothes so you can actually get into the room without stepping on stuff. Give it one more day and I think it will actually be sort of CLEAN!

get into college
This too shall pass...

I never thought the pressure and craziness of completing my college apps and getting into college would ever end, but it finally did. And somehow I got into my dream school even though my grades and scores were below the average (Thank you NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts!). So, now that it’s all over, I’m very thankful I went through with actually applying to my reach school. I’d also recommend that others go for the schools they want despite the odds of actually getting in. And for any other seniors who are really losing their minds over this process, just remember that it will all be over soon enough.
