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.

Ride a mechanical bull

we went to the electric cowboy the other night for my best friend’s bachelorette party and there was a bull there. they told me i should ride it, but i was in a skirt (granted, it was long and flowy and not short and skanky) and the man operating the bull was a perv, haha. so… maybe some other time when i’m in jeans or something.

Buy a motorcycle
sport bike yeahhhh

my friend brandon and i rode one of his friend’s cbr 1000s the other night and in third gear we were doin’ 135 and not even close to red lining it. my GOD at the adrenaline rush.

i know if i bought a 1000 anything i’d kill myself, so i think i’ll settle for something in the 500 – 650 range. the ‘08 graffiti black honda cbr’s are pure sex. too bad i can’t afford to pay ten grand for pure sex.

looks like i’ll have to buy used. =/

be a bridesmaid
showers and parties and dresses.. oh my

one of my best friends got married two months ago and the other one is getting married next week. i’ve been bridesmaids both times, and even though i live 625 miles away from each of them, it’s totally worth the drives home to throw their showers and attend their parties and whatnot. of course i couldn’t attend all of their showers, and they were nice enough to somewhat plan their lingerie showers around my schedule. there’s nothing like being a part in one of the biggest days in someone’s life. =)
