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 made chicken and rice. Just bland old chicken and rice. really because my dog had an upset tummy. But I am gathering some chicken and rice recipes for myself and one of them will be my first real cooking project! 9 months ago

alyseI want a new job

My job right now should be such good practice for this goal. Instead I just want to run away. I’m tired of feeling tense, walking on egg shells, and being questioned about how I do my job.

I must work harder on this. Much harder. 10 months ago

alysehiking group

I met a lot of people with interesting jobs and interesting travel tales when I was hiking with that group this past summer. I made two new friends this year. Not from that group but I thought it was something to note. 11 months ago

I went to Seaside, which was a new location….but it isn’t new enough to call this done because it was still in Florida. 13 months ago

alysehiking group

I joined a group of people to hike with every weekend though It’s a very helpful site in finding like minded friends!

alyseTrain ride & prison

My parents were taking my nephew on a train ride in New Haven, so I tagged along. While we were out of town I spotted an old jail that gives tours, and my nephew and I took the tour. Two things I love, historic places, and ghost hunting!! The jail was really cool. There were a bunch of left behind artifacts they found while they’d cleaned it up like a shoe in the women’s prison cell, a make shift key made out of a Mountain Dew can, weapons, and writing on the cell walls. Jesse James was held there for a time. And it was on America’s top most Haunted Places. 17 months ago

alysedwelling on hurt feelings

Last night a group of us at work did a cancer walk with one of our co-workers who is a recent survivor. He was inviting people along, and invited the girl I work my station with. She mentioned it, but didn’t extend the invite. Then he asked me to join. I told her I’m going too, and she was obviously disappointed. It hurt my feelings, because I had been under the impression we get along rather well, and I could consider her like a friend. She’s constantly saying we need to hang out, we never do. And she never invites me.

Not everyone needs to like me. And I understand we need to get along working so close. But if she doesn’t want me to join a cancer walk, then I’d appreciate her not pretending she’d like to hang out sometime as friends. 17 months ago
