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.

is enjoying being young and restless =]

drink more water than caffeinated crapp. (read all 2 entries…)
feeling better

ive definately changed my drinking style over the past few months. maybe it was that emergency room visit because of dehydration or maybe me losing my appetite. whatever the cause, im much more prone to choosing water over soda. I feel much more healthy and it actually leads to more healthy choices. for example i tried to cut down on my sugar intake, and eat more apples =] water is vital for me and im glad ive changed my unhealthy ways

save up for an i-pod (read all 2 entries…)

i lost my previous mp3 and i went shopping for a new music player. and i dont know why, my friend was encouraging me to buy the new ipod, but i refused and sticked to my mp3 and bought a new mp3. i always wanted a ipod!! and now i realize that its just music. and the same music can be put on a mp3. and its just the madness and the advertisements that we see for ipods that make us crave it. theres really other things in my life i want and need more than a ipod. so im proudly taking this off my list. and plus, i dont have time to deal with itunes or whatever that is. and every new few months, there’s a new ipod thats somehow “cooler” than the one u just bought. loll, i cant keep up with thatt.

live off the grid
livn free

my goal will be to live off the grid for a month. i wanna see if i cud possibley do that. that includes no computer, no cellphone, no phone, no electricity light (mayb a flashlight or candle will do) and only homemade food. i dun wanna buy any new products and contribute to the evil and money thirsty industries and corporations we live among. now, its soo easy to say and therefore, its a challenge and hopefully, one day i can start and successfully change my life and perhaps do this challenge for more than a month.

take a road trip with no predetermined destination

h2o.. does the body good.

i need to drink more water. my face is hideous from my acne and acne scars.. and i realized that a lil more water in my life will not hurt.

gain weight
i wanna gain some weight.

im 17 and have spent half my life trying to gain weight. im about to turn 18 and absolutely hate the way i look. my friends are all curvy and “healthy” looking and get way more attention from guys. i recently noticed that this issue was something major when i lost my confidence and my self esteem and just started to stay home. i always tell myself that as long im happy, nothing else matters. well, IM NOT HAPPY. i’ve made so many food logs and exercise routines and just… lost track or gave up. i guess my problem is that im not hungry.. and when i think im hungry i get full really quickly. strangers usually accuse me of an eating disorder, because im veryy skinny (5’4 107 lbs) and look very uncomfortable in all situations. basically, i have to eat!! i dont want to look like an anorexic model, cuz i dont plan on modeling in my lifetime!!!!
