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.

go to a club and have fun while sober

JustWellEnjoy A Nice View

If you can’t figure how to find a worthfull mood looking at something nice then you couldn’t have had enough reason in thought to apply towards an interesting night out unless something is annoying you through a past impression for some reason. 6 years ago

coralrusha lil inspiration for y'all

things that are more fun in clubs while sober:
  • making fun of drunk people
  • arguing with drunk people
  • playing with drunk people’s minds
  • dancing (if you’re a girl… sorry boys)
  • making sober friends (yes, there are sober people out there)
  • your wallet
  • rejecting gross people. especially if they’re drunk. 9 years ago

dragonfly is somewhere dreamingvery very very worth it

but… i drank water. and, and, and coffee too… oh it was glorious! i used to be able to dance from dusk till dawn. i do so miss it. 9 years ago

FlashI used to drink a little

But it was just because everyone else did… and at one point I realized that: I don’t enjoy it, it’s expensive, and it makes my body feel bad. So I stopped.

I have just as much fun as everyone else at parties and clubs—maybe more. I don’t need to drink to feel like dancing or flirting or telling crazy jokes and stories or making daring overtures to enticing strangers.

Sometimes people assume I am drinking (maybe because they are?) and later they say, “whoa, Flash, you sure were having fun at that party last night!” They assume that I must be drinking to dance so freely, laugh so loudly, talk to strangers, etc. I like knowing that I appear so uninhibited even without the influence of alcohol.

I am grateful that my personality allows me to do these things without anxiety that desires alcohol to be calmed. 9 years ago
