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.

have babies

Crazy, barefoot, rambunctious, perfect kids. Lots of them. They’re the only thing innocent and honest on Earth. Babies. My Fav. Genuine

find a cowboy
You Know.

Somebody who can saddle a horse and take me hunting. A boy who is crazy about me as I am about him. A boy who gets muddy and doesn’t care. A boy who acts tough but not with me. A cowboy for me.


I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly

I wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of bluebonnets
In a blanket made of stars

Oh it sounds good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you

I wanna walk and not run
I wanna skip and not fall
I wanna look at the horizon
And not see a building standing tall

I wanna be the only one
For miles and miles
Except for maybe you
And your simple smile

be less lazy

I’m thinking that if I do this, the others will all kind of fall into place. School, work, getting up early, a lot of what I think is holding me back is just that I’m lazy sometimes. I miss class. I hold myself back in lots of ways. Sounds easy. Maybe now it will be. I need to take matters into my own hands and just do it. Everything I do, just do it. No hesitations, no excuses, just do it. So Lazyness will be gone soon. Yes.


I want to:
