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.

take a walk every day

I’m certain that it will be hard because where I’m taking two honors classes and when I get home from school I’m always so exhausted, but I really want to be a healthier person and since I’m not all too athletic, then taking a walk daily is my only choice. Plus, my dad always complains that I don’t get outside enough, so this will be a way to get him off my case.

See Cirque du Soleil

I remember seeing part of a video in seventh grade…. It was really amazing and simply breathtaking. It makes me wonder how something so complicated is done and performed. The video was amazing, I can only imagine how great it would be live.

I remember that when my music teacher showed us a video of it, my best friend said that it was alien porn. Yeahh…. He really knows how to screw up a wet dream.

Learn to play the guitar

I’ve been wanting to learn guitar for awhile. One of my ex-boyfriend’s plays and he loves it. He said I should totally try it out and he also said that one day he’d teach me. But then we broke up.

Now that I’m in highschool, next year, when I’m a sophomore, I have the option of learning guitar as an elective. So I’ll be taking that course, definitely.

My dad said that when we have enough money that he would buy me the guitar that I wanted. That guitar would be a Hello Kitty pink and black Fender.
