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.

Dalia MoatazLive in London with my best friend!

Ever since I was a child, I was always fantasized by the view of the glorious Big Ben standing tall in the middle of London. Over the years, my love to this city grew more by the day till finally I had the chance to visit it my self and indulge my self with its beauty.

I’ve known my best friend for 5 years now. She too has visited London and just fell in love with it the same way I did back then. We became literally OBSESSED with London; the architecture, the English flag, the big red bus, and even the accent.
This maybe sounds off but the British accent has its special ring in your ear making it utterly irresistible.

And besides we all know that an ENGLISH GUY is every girl’s dream. Am I right girls or am I right? 16 months ago

London is an amazing city 18 months ago


I moved to London as a lifelong dream.

It is unlike anything else. Definitely something you have to do once in your lifetime! 23 months ago

thismuchistrueWow! Time changes things.

So since writing my original entry, I’ve spent five more months living in London. And, interestingly, my time there in 2011 was even better than 2010. It was so good I can’t even explain it, really. I am not moving this to complete because I want to live there long-term, but as of now I can very comfortably say that I have a real and full life in London. I can also say, for better or for worse, that I have more friends there then I have in the states! It’s where I’m happiest, and I will probably never feel fully settled until I’m living there full time. 2 years ago

soulwithwildeyes4I can't wait till the day I can say bon voyage.

I’m being called to London towne. I feel it in my fibers. Its the right fit for me right now. Hopefully, will be there by next year. Probably, a study abroad program with my school…but who knows? I can already hear the music, feel the chill of winter’s breeze, and taste the Lady Grey tea. I want to work at Lindsey Jay’s fitness studio or at least attend it. and write about everything. 2 years ago


London is the most amzing and awesome place ever and it has been my dream to live there for quite a while. I just like its buzz and I feel like it’s home. Plus my best friend lives there so I would get to see her more often and the rest of my mums side of the family live there too. I would especially like to live in Camden because I love Camden Market and the locks. I also want to live in a big city with a multicultural population, lots of different things to do, places to go and things to buy. Living in London is one of my biggest dreams and I would be truly disappointed if I didn’t achieve this goal. I know it’s expensive but I don’t mind living in a small flat, it’s my surroundings that count. First of all I’ll have to get out of Germany and it will take some time until I’m old enough but I can wait… 2 years ago

Aleeeeeeeeeseeven if just for a spell

don’t know why – my friend’s there completing a PhD in numismatics – would be fun to see her – then there’s the JMW TUrner exhibit I’d like to live with for a while – but mostly it just sort of is calling me, the whole entirety of it 2 years ago

awkwardcatsuniteCan't Say How Long

this has been a goal of mine. Years. I remember fantasizing about living in England from about the age of 10. I’m not sure what it is about it, but I’ve always just found it sort of…mystical. Maybe it’s the fog.

Anyway, my first goal is to study abroad somewhere in England. From there we shall see where this goes. 2 years ago
