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.

This is the first apartment I have ever had in my 28 years of life. Not only is it my only apartment it is the first place I ever got on my own and wasn’t with a family member. It is so relieving and has definitely given me a boost in my life. The best part: it’s probably one of the coolest apartments in this town. 5 months ago

FlirtingwithFreedomIt was only a matter of days

The rental company that we chose had us in the apartment in two days. It has been the MOST stressful and confidence slashing experience I’ve probably ever been through. I mean, it was over $1000 just to move in and that doesn’t include lights, water, trash, cable, internet and food. You really learn in minutes what’s a necessity and what you can hold off on when you only have a few hundred dollars left to do anything with. But it’s rewarding. Sitting in your empty house with a bowl of ramen knowing that it’s not always going to be this way. I’m glad I took this step. And even more glad that I took it with my husband. 10 months ago


I moved on my own again. Was nice having a roommate for the past 2 years but it takes lots and lots of patience to leave with a friend. In the end was for the best. I hope we can still be friends.

So my next goal based on getting to leave by myself again is to save money and buy my own apartment. 2 years ago

I found a place and am moving in on the 23rd. M paid the application fee for me since he had the $$ upfront and I’m going to pay the deposit and monthly fee. I can’t wait to have my own place! 2 years ago

It’s hard to find a one-bedroom apartment within my price range! I did find an apartment complex with efficiencies around the price I’m willing to pay, there just aren’t any available right no. I’m going to fill out an application so that I can be alterted when efficiencies become available. 2 years ago

My husband and I are saving up to get our own place by Christmas or New Year!!! :) We are almost there and I can’t wait til we get one and move in. We are staying with my sister and her husband and we’ve been with them since September when my husband started a new job with my brother-in-law. 3 years ago

There is nothing more shitty, expensive, and stressful than living on campus.
