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.

p 3 years ago


Fashion Magazines—Fashion has never interested me. Besides, a lot of those magazines are probably chock-full of weight loss pressure, direct or not.

Bitter People—Although it may seem contradictory due to the fact that I’m writing this list in the first place, I’m really not that resentful a person. Naturally, I gravitate away from people who are.

Judgment of Celebrities—Okay, I understand peoples’ arguments about what all these stars are doing. Some of it is pretty awful and intense. But I guess I’m just not sure how we came to consider celebrities as people to look up to in the first place. I for one never felt influenced either way by them.

Homophobia—I can be accepting of anyone’s views on abortion, war, and even creationism, but homophobia is not something I can tolerate. This does not come from experience at all. Having a geneticist for a mother, maybe.

Hypochondria—It keeps me up late sometimes. Seriously, it sounds insane, but trust me: when you’re in a state like that, you will be ANYTHING but rational. It only happens at night though. 3 years ago


Pretty Much Anything Loud—Yeah, I’m really more into quiet. I like energetic things, but not if they’re excessively loud.

Going to Sports Games—Really, I don’t like sports. I don’t follow them well. Baseball is the worst, since I get lectured every five minutes for not paying attention because I risk getting hurt. (Well, could I even do something about a ball coming at me if I were paying attention to it?

Awkward Moments—Yeah, pretty self-explanatory. I usually react by changing the topic, avoiding the person for the rest of the day, and remaining rather irritable for the next several hours.

Distrust—Distrust upsets me. I’m an overly trusting person, but I don’t like the notion of being so alone that you can only trust yourself. I mean, you can’t really function without trust.

Several-Hundred-Year-Old, Convoluted Literature—Again, not trying to be offensive to anyone here. But I just have such a hard time relating to the concepts, and I’m not the best reader as it is (probably due to being more of a visual/kinesthetic learner), so trying to read those books just takes that much longer. 3 years ago


Provocative Clothes—I’m pretty sure this one is self-explanatory.

Nitpicking of Things in the Media—My opinion? They were talented enough to make it to the public, so that’s talented enough for me. Plain and simple. My criticism radar just turns off.

The Post-Effects of Procrastination—Also self-explanatory, haha.

Unprotective Friends—Well…I guess I realize that not most people have friends who are half like older sisters, like I do, but even so, I don’t know why people play tricks on their friends that they know aren’t even actually safe for the recipient.

Bad Things that Happen to Good People—I think it’s one of the saddest things about this world. 3 years ago


Teen Dramas on TV—I don’t see the appeal in those kinds of shows, personally. There are way too many plots to follow, and I don’t see why anyone would want to indulge in those sort of concepts. Well, unless they relate to them, I guess.

Hectic Schedules—What ever happened to slowing down? Adults with crazy lives are one thing, but kids and teens deserve a childhood! I’m not saying having a lot of extracurriculars has to be mutually exclusive to that, but I think it does cut into it.

People who take Pleasure in Others’ Pain—Well, duh. Especially if it’s physical pain. The person you’re laughing at could need freaking MEDICAL attention for all you know.

PE Class in Elementary School—Really, people of my past. It’s called “I was born with a low muscle tone.” I may have been a little too stubborn about exercise, but I really wish people would have believed that the things I said were hard for me actually were.

Sophistication—It appears to me that all “sophistication” means is being fake and trying to sound impressive. From my perspective, a world of sophistication means a world of being on guard. 3 years ago


Physical Play Fighting—So dominance is SO prominent in our society that it has to leak into our recreational activities, too?

Mock Anger—I hate it partly because I’m afraid the person is going to cry wolf one day, and also because if it’s over something that really would make me angry, I guess it makes me feel a little mocked.

Metal/Rap Music—Meh, I guess it’s just too…not positive for me.

Intolerance—Particularly because I hardly ever come in contact with it in my life, so when I do, it’s even more irritating.

Opera/Formal Recitals/etc.—Not to be offensive to anyone, but I don’t understand how being so uptight and proper about something can be satisfying. It doesn’t sound like that much of an experience… 3 years ago
