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.

get classical art education in florence, italy

ever since i saw the classical art school one of my art teachers attended in Florence… I fell in love.. and sometimes, I think that instead of go the traditional, modern, American route of college and such, I’d like to stop everything and more to florence and just do art and never stop… and train and learn and draw and paint and.. oh man… sometimes.

Live in India for a while

I know, I know, it is a vast country… but where is there in this country that i could go that is anything like the country I am used to? probably nowhere. I almost went to Dharamsala this summer because friends of mine have family there that would take me in, but I had to cancel it due to some personal issues.

not feel any stress or attraction or fear or pain towards my ex

yeah. it’s been rough. I am getting closer toward this goal than I was a few months ago, but it is still hard. I’ll be seeing this ex (no.. not because i want to) in a few days for the first time since we broke up and …that’ll be interesting. I keep thinking about it. I just don’t know how I’ll react… really… how he’ll be? because yes, i wonder that, too. he was my first love. so i don’t know anything about getting over this.


I want to:
