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.

35. George Benson - Nothing's gonna change my love for you

If I had to live my life without you near me
The days would all be empty
The nights would seem so long
With you I see forever oh so clearly
I might have been in love before
But it never felt this strong

Our dreams are young
And we both know they’ll take us
Where we want to go

(Chorus 1)
Hold me now
Touch me now
I don’t want to live without you

(Chorus 2)
Nothing’s gonna change my love for you
You ought know by now how much I love you
One thing you can be sure of
I’ll never ask for more than your love

(Chorus 3)
Nothing’s gonna change my love for you
You ought know by now how much I love you
The world may change my whole life through
But nothing’s gonna change my love for you

If the road ahead is not so easy,
Our love will lead the way for us
Like a guiding star
I’ll be there for you if you should need me
You don’t have to change a thing
I love you just the way you are
So come with me and share the view
I’ll help you see forever too

get into university
I did it!

I’m actually a bit late with announcing this one, but I got into my dream university a month ago. I got 91/100 on my test and I was the first one ranked by points in my group. I’m really glad I done one of my most important goals at this time. I worked hard to achieve it. When I finished school, I continued to wake up every morning at 7 o’clock to start studying and preparing for the test. I worked almost whole day until 8 o’clock in the evening, of course with a lot of breaks in between. If you really want something and you want to achieve it, you have to work hard for it. If you work hard, you can do it! :)

touch a snake
I never thought I could do it.

I was out with my friends that day. On a downtown street we saw a girl with a snake and a boy with a reptile, the ones you can take photos with. My friend came closer and started to pet the snake. I was scared at first, but I decided to do it too. I never thought I could touch the snake, since I was really afraid. I’m not any more and I finally know how a snake’s skin feel. lol

I can't wait for another opportunity...

This weekend I’ve had my first volunteer experience. I’ve been volunteering for the cultural event Night of Museums held between 15th and 16th May. This event is spreading to over 120 cities throughout Europe. I’m really happy I’ve been a part of this project especially in my city. I’ve found out and seen many interested things, I didn’t know even existed in my city. I’ve been volunteering from 3pm to 2am with 4 of my friends. This has been one great experience and I can’t wait for another opportunity to volunteer. :)

get a driving licence
I got my driving license!

Today I went to get my driving license. Finally! After 5-6 months of driving classes (with longer and shorter breaks between classes) I’ve passed my theory and my driving test. When I passed my driving test I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to start driving. Now, I’m a proud owner of a driving license. The only thing I need now is a car… Hmmm…

34. Indexi - Zute dunje

Voljelo se dvoje mladih
šest mjeseci, godinu
kad su htjeli da se uzmu, da se uzmu aman, aman
dušmani im ne dadoše

Razbolje se lijepa Fatma
jedinica u majke
poželjela žute dunje, žute dunje aman, aman
žute dunje iz Stambola

Pođe dragi da donese
žute dunje Carigradske
al’ ga nema tri godine, tri godine aman, aman
nit’ se javlja, niti dolazi

Dođe dragi sa dunjama
nađe Fatmu na nosilima
dvjesta dajem spustite je, trista dajem otkrijte je
da još jednom Fatmu ljubim ja

33. Indexi - Bacila je sve niz rijeku

Stajala je usred bašte ko najljepši cvijet
Kao da je dio mašte i muzike te
Slušala je pjesmu moju posljednju što pjevam njoj
Sad joj kažem zbogom draga a bila je život moj

Prošla je kroz moje snove i bila je tren
Cijelim tijelom bila moja ja bio sam njen
Nosila je našu ljubav našu sreæu prvi cvijet
Bacila je sve niz rijeku i pošla u drugi svijet

A noæas ako sluša nek èuje bol
U pjesmi koju pjevam njoj, samo njoj
Zauvijek neka nosi na srcu znak
Život je jedan ona bacila

32. Alen Slavica - S tobom nasao sam srecu

Setamo polako pored rijeke
u kasne sate ljubim te
moj andjeo si ti
toliko trebas mi

Zvijezda sa neba pala je
ko da je znala zbog tebe
moja jedina si ti
puna njeznosti

S tobom nasao sam srecu
ti si meni sudjena
pozelit drugu nikad necu
jer ti si za me rodjena

Ljubi me njezno, njezno polako
sama znas da je bolje tako
tiho pricaj mi o nasoj ljubavi
u mojoj dusi nemiri
dok si kraj mene ljubljena
moj andjeo si ti toliko trebas mi


Proveli smo noci bez sna
u zaru ljubavi
Jer nijedna druga nije ko ti
to zaboravi nije ko ti

31. Glorija - Dodirni me

Gledam te nekim drugim ocima
upravo onako kako ne treba
u tebi je Vojvodina zaspala
sto izvora, nigde obala

I ne shvatam sta mi se desava
nedostaje mi rec koja resava
u tebi je neka tajna ostala
k’o muzika starih majstora

Ref. 2x
Dodirni me sasvim slucajno
poljubi me filmski nestvarno
i najlepse kad je prestani
okreni se i nestani

Osecam nesto cudno u vazduhu
ceo svet na jednom jastuku
na postelji od punog meseca
nikom se ovde ne spava

Ref. 2x

30. Oliver Dragojevic - Bez tebe

Bio sam korak od dna
a ti si ruku pruzila
bio sam na kisi sam
ti vrata si otvorila

Bila si nekako sva
za mene nestvarna
bila si zena
sto zna da ljubav da

Bez tebe nestat ce sunca
druge cu prositi za malo ljubavi
bez tebe, jedina moja
za kog’ cu zivjeti, za koga umrijeti

Bilo je noci bez sna
a ti bi me uspavala
moj svaki znala si grijeh
al’ opet bi me ljubila

Bio sam ponekad grub
ti sve bi prastala
bila si zena sto zna
da osjeca

29. Piloti - Zaboravljeni

Mozda smo ja i ti
divlji i niciji,
mozda nas je tuga
zauvek vezala

Kazu nam da smo svi
rodjeni jednaki,
jednaki pred Bogom
i pod zvezdama

Cujem marsiraju zastave,
zvone koraci u ovoj noci,
nebo nocas ratuje
a ti me ne pitaj
nikada o samoci

Sanjam, sanjam da si tu
ko da letim na zlatnom cilimu
sanjam Bog nas prokleo
sve nam dao
a srecu nam je uzeo

Zaboravljen sam ja,
zaboravljena ti
negde u tisini nase ulice
ponoc je kucnula
ti si se prekrstila,
obrisala sve
jednim potezom gumice

buy a car
I wish for one...

I’m soon getting my driving license, so I’m thinking about getting a car. I love driving and I can’t wait to be able to get in my own car and drive, drive, drive…

I’m in love with Peugeot. I’d like to get a small – “city” car and I think blue Peugeot 207 would be perfect. It’s my dream car.
