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.

If Romney becomes president please believe I’m ghost. 2 years ago

akaDecember 3rd

The visas are here and we changed the date of flight for December 3rd. The only issue is that they screwed up my landing paper (it has 3 mistakes including my citizenship, which is important). I hope we will recieve the corrected form very soon! We are sending the container on Tuesday so we have a very busy weekend of measuring, weighting and wrapping ahead. 3 years ago

akaNovember 26th?

We got an approximate date for our flight! It’s not all bad because we gonna have a 7 hours layover in London! We already decided to go to Borough Market. It’s gonna be fun, although a little tiring too. We gonna have 6 big suitcases, 2 small and 2 small items (backpack and handbag). I can’t iagine how we will be able to move around with that mountain of luggage. But we already have 2 people volunteering to meet us in Vancouver which is great. Now we just have to recieve our passports by mail. 3 years ago

akaWe got it!

Sending our passports to the embassy tomorrow! They should be back in less than 3 weeks! 3 years ago


Our status changed to “medicals received”, so it should be any day now! Checking our email hourly :) 3 years ago


We got an email from Bucharest that asked for more details about our travels for the ladt year. We sent the reply immediately with all the supporting documents. That’s probably the last step we had left before the passports will be requested. Fingers crossed! 3 years ago


So now we are in Romania waiting for embassy to request our passports. Waiting sucks, especially here. I struggle so much here and feel completely alone. No one around speaks Russian or even English (except of my husband, obviously). He doesn’t keep in touch with his old friends so our socializing is limited by his family. It just seems too much for me. Feeling trapped and depressed, pretty much the same like during the 3 months we spent here last year. Romania is for tough people… 3 years ago

JellyfishyThe Grande Plan

So I’ve been dating my boyfriend for almost a year now and we really want to live together, however since he lives in Canada and I in Sweden it is indeed troublesome.
Canada is obviously the best choice, since I am fluent in English and he is the one with an education.

As the plan lies now I will travel to Canada in the end of November/beginning of December on a tourist visa. Stay until the beginning of April and go home to renew my passport and send in an application for the International Experience Canada or a “Working Holiday” as it used to be called.
This will allow me to live there for a year and we will see where it goes from them, I might be able to get a working visa or we will go for the sponsorship option.

Right now my main goal is to collect money for my trip and IEC (you need 2500CAD in your account to apply for it). 3 years ago

akaBackground checked at last!

I called them again and the lady (same one every time!) answered that my papers will be mailed on Monday! If it’s true, then we should receive it in a week in Romania. We can be getting requests to send passports for a visa somewhere in September. So unbelievable! Another country again… 3 years ago
