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.

move out on my own
It will be grand.

You already know this. I’m moving in with Fenton. Zootalours! I actually have a fair amount of stuff. Depressingly enough, I have been ready to “move out on my own” since probably graduation from High School, because my parents have just been giving me stuff since I did that whole, “of age” thing at eighteen. Here’s what I have:

*One Jerker Ikea desk
*Three bookshelves
*A dresser
*A bed (I think- or hope, rather)
*A sewing desk
*A few sets of dishes (retro->chili bowls with handles, YESS!, Fluorescent rubber ikea stuff, wine glasses, plates and small plates matching retro chili bowls, and COMING SOON a set of handmade pottery: Japanese soup bowls, dipping dishes and sushi plates, as well as a teapot, mugs and several pottery casserole dishes. And a pottery fruitbowl. Awesome.)
*A toaster oven
*cooking utensils
*A set of pots and pans
*Two end tables
*Lots of other shit.

Show and/or sell some of my art professionally
"Nuclear Explosion"

This is a print transfer I’ve done- currently one of my all time favorite medias. Art is really the only way I can say anything intelligent about the political scene in the world right now, and how that affects me. And I want people who can’t vocalize that well, like me, to see what I do, and get that same feeling inside that I get when I make art, “I couldn’t say this feeling, but I feel like this about that.”

write and publish a novel

I’ve got lots of ideas, and lots of them started…I just have to sit down and finish them. This is my can of ideas. It’s full.
