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.

Stop getting irritated with mother

it takes some practice and sometimes i would forget but it just leaves alot more communication open if im not getting irritated all of the time and just really listening to her and tryin my best to answer her questions the way i know i should be responding to her.

Buy nike shox (read all 2 entries…)

now i can run for so much longer and there so so so so so comfortable it was definitely worth it

make my own clothes (read all 3 entries…)
LoVe iT

this is very much worth it especially if you love fashion and just being real creative. i basically just went and bought a book that told me the basics of sewing and then went and bought a sewing machine. when i was in high school we had to make a quilt so i knew the basics around starting and then just go buy you a pattern and read from the instructions. so far i have made 3 dresses, pants and like 7 shirts. you really do need the some time put aside to really get into maybe about a week and just do it. i really now would like to take a class on it so i can really good and know how to put zippers on my stuff.
