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.

Learn to drive a stick shift

My boyfriend had a junk manual car in his drive way that he had to get rid of. He brought it to his friends and it turned out to actually run. All they had to do was push start it. Turns out it was an easy fix and they had it starting fine.

I’ve had many dreams of driving a manual car but I had no car to learn on. Plus I just think it’s a lot more impressive if you have or can drive one.

Anyways I got in and I was very confident in myself. I did fine I didn’t stall. Starting and stoping was a sinch. I loved driving it and I plan on buying a manual car. It’s so exciting.

learn to drive a motorcycle

I asked my father to teach me to drive a motorcycle and he just acted like I was joking. I got somewhat annoyed and just figured he didn’t want me to get hurt. Ever since I asked him I’ve had dreams about riding. I wake up even more determined to learn than the pervious day. My boyfriend owns a bike and kind of offered to teach me but I’m nervous. I’m scared I’ll mess it up somehow and feel like an idiot. Its not like it’s a brand new bike though. I just have to take the risk I guess.
