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.

I’ve been in a band now since April, but since joining all I’ve done was learn their songs. Well in the last month I’ve written two songs, and I have another in the works right now. I love it, this is the greatest artistic release ever!!!

finish my degree
but which one

guh, I gotta declare a new major and get back into school. It’s just so much to think about, and I am too busy as it is. Ack

I really let playing music go out of my life for a long time. But then when my fiance and I broke up I found myself just playing and playing all the time. So I got my bass cleaned up and put myself out there on myspace as an available bassist, and bam. A month later I am playing with some cool people, meeting all sorts of other cool people, and stretching myself musically and creatively. This is by far one of the best things a person can do. Don’t wait, if you don’t know how to play, learn, and practice practice practice.
