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.

starlight_starbrightBut what to get?

Well, so far I’ve narrowed my thoughts down to the things I know for sure that I DON’T want.

I dont want an angel/cherub
I dont want a devil/demon
I dont want a rose
I dont want any ninja stars, sparkles or diamonds
I dont want a portrait or cartoon charator

So now to figure out what I Do want. The only reason I don’t want these is because so many people have them. I like them fine, just not for me. It’s not the right time. Any suggestions are welcome and encouraged. If it’s something not on the list, thank you so much! If it is on the list, explain it please, so I know it’s not the ordinary style, placement, and size. _2 years ago


starlight_starbrightMy Father's Eyes--Eric Clapton

Sailing down behind the sun,
Waiting for my prince to come.
Praying for the healing rain
To restore my soul again.
Just a toerag on the run.
How did I get here?
What have I done?
When will all my hopes arise?
How will I know him?
When I look in my father’s eyes.
My father’s eyes.
When I look in my father’s eyes.
My father’s eyes.
Then the light begins to shine
And I hear those ancient lullabies.
And as I watch this seedling grow,
Feel my heart start to overflow.
Where do I find the words to say?
How do I teach him?
What do we play?
Bit by bit, I’ve realized
That’s when I need them,
That’s when I need my father’s eyes.
My father’s eyes.
That’s when I need my father’s eyes.
My father’s eyes.
Then the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears.
I’m like a bridge that was washed away;
My foundations were made of clay.
As my soul slides down to die.
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I’ve realized
That he was here with me;
I looked into my father’s eyes.
My father’s eyes.
I looked into my father’s eyes.
My father’s eyes.
My father’s eyes.
My father’s eyes.
I looked into my father’s eyes.

My father’s eyes.

(Still no luck for me. I’m still hoping on all hope.) 2 years ago


starlight_starbrightHow it will look

Okay, I’ve thought about this long and hard. My WV Bus, (when i get one) will be black where on the top, as the base color. The panels will have the rainbow spectrum painted across so perfectly. White wall tires. lime green peace sign painted on the front. Fuzzy dice. 2 years ago

starlight_starbrightWhy do it?

It’s insane to believe that in modern America you can just hop in your car, truck, or jeep and zip off into the great unknown hoping to find something rare and amazing. I’m one of the people who still believe it can be done.
The more I read and study places, the less I understand. I learn through experiance better than anything. And I want to travel my great/not-so-great nation to learn and understand everything that holds us all together and keeps us all going, and to help understand myself. 2 years ago

starlight_starbrightConcert

Well, I’ve grown up with this dude’s music, because my momma loves it. And so do I. He’s always talking about something smart and important when he speaks, and in his music as well even if people don’t realize that. I think it’s super cool that we come from the same state and we live only a few county’s away (no, I dunno where his house is)! That’s always a nice thing to find out. 2 years ago
