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.

Fix education in America
public school sucks

i’ve only been to public school and let me tell you. i was a cow. the bell rings and mooooooove! you have 5 minutes to get to the next room you need to be in. i was a number. my number was 1003684. straight up! i was at berkeley high and there was about 3000 other people like me, also numbers. the school had the most money per student being spent, but 90% of that money was going to the a.p. classes and then everyone else (including myself) was getting screwed. so much drama went down. like the first year i was there, the building with the offices and shit got BURNT DOWN!!! BY THE PRINCABLE!!!! swear to god!

eat less sugar
eat rite

so i’ve been eating better lately. i still have a sweet tooth but i def think i’ve cut back. salads, sandwiches, soups, smoothies, burritos, curry, rice, bread, hummus, carrots, juices, breakfast food. it’s all good yo.

become an artist
fool, i am an artist

it’s been taking me a while to realize, but i am an artist. i see my friends and some of there interests, and most of them are not interested in art. some of them are, and the ones that are, do make art for themselfs. i’m really into art and i am starting to make it on a part-time basis. soon it will be a full time basis and i’ll be pumpin’ out shit left and right. so yo, make art and be happy. it’s what god put you here for.
