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.

It took much longer than I thought and this stupid cold added days to it. 13 months ago


I just finished it. 13 months ago


I was still making mistakes with a practice ball but was getting annoyed so thought I may as well just try knitting with the proper wool.

The scarf is not nearly wide enough but I’ve done about 1/4 of it so far with no mistakes (that I can see.) I have a horrible cold so I’m sat in bed watching crap TV and knitting. 13 months ago


I remember when I was small asking my mum if I could change my name (when I first found out you could do it) and she said “when you are older.” I think it was because my name was really popular for the year I was born so in class I was always Laura number 3 instead of just Laura.

So we are planning to move eventually (We thought it would be sooner than later but the house seems to be falling apart around us) and I thought moving would be the perfect time to change it as here I have to tell people I’m called Emily now. There I will just be Emily. J thought it seemed like a good idea and as we are engaged we thought we would choose a surname together rather than me taking his name.

Have you picked a middle name yet? 13 months ago


1. No, I hate Christmas shopping so I put it off for as long as I can.

2. We didn’t have any to begin with :(

3. Yes but mainly with other people

- I went with an asthma attack on NYE and missed a party as I got admitted.
- Took J when he stood on a cup to get stitches.
- Took my ex when he cut his knuckle open with a knife and needed mini surgery.

4. I sent off a signed contract thing last week. Does that count?

5. I mainly text when meeting people or to arrange meeting. I prefer using email, FB and other sites. more words13 months ago


I changed all my names a while ago. The last name was difficult to choose.

How I did it was I thought about what sort of name I wanted. I wanted something shorter and more common so I didn’t have to spell it out so often.

Then I knew I wanted something at the beginning of the alphabet as my old surname began with a W and I was always waiting in school be it for the register to be called or to be put into groups.

Then because J is also changing his name I asked if he had any preferences, he didn’t. So we looked at a website that lists surnames and looked under the letter A. He picked 5 and I picked 5 to see if we had any in common. I don’t think we did so we just read down them until we found one we agreed we both liked.

I do like the family names idea but I have a lot of Irish catholic family with really long surnames :)

Good luck choosing one. 13 months ago

[♥]-Emily-[♥]Day one

So I learnt how to cast on. That seemed to work. Then I tried knitting a few rows.

It started out about 3 inches wide and straight. In the end it was like a rectangle attached to a square attached to a triangle.

So I’m adding extra somehow somewhere. Knitting does not relax me.

I will try again tomorrow. 13 months ago


I am going to try an knit a scarf.

I have ordered some wool and I’m going to watch some tutorials. 13 months ago

Happy birthday :-) 13 months ago


They had a zip on the inside leg so they were quick to get on and off.

The ones like this took 3 minutes to buckle up though which was a pain. 14 months ago

[♥]-Emily-[♥]Just noticed

When about to purchase a Kindle book how many devices are registered on my account. 14 months ago


It’s water vapour. It is like steam from a kettle, it doesn’t smell or linger so no passive smoking.

I think they are really good. There haven’t been around long enough for studies to show the long term effects but we do know how bad smoking regular cigarettes are. The e-liquid doesn’t have any where near as many chemicals in.

If smoking was still legal inside I would view it as rude to smoke while eating so I wouldn’t get my e-cig out and smoke at the table anyway.

I think people are used to not smoking indoors in public places now. I know that I don’t smoke my e-cig walking around shops or on public transport. The only exception is in a pub. Alcohol triggers the want to smoke. But again I don’t do it in crowded places and still go outside with others when they smoke. 14 months ago
