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.

want to find new friends, for new, interesting adventures 5 months ago

viridianag0thanks to school

As I am getting closer to my year of graduating the courses I am required to take are more related to my field of work so I am getting the opportunity of seeing the same people for longer periods of times…I think this is an easier way of befriending people. This past semester I had the same group of people in almost all of my classes and I have grown very fond of them now that I have gotten to know them more. 18 months ago

mariai don't know how; i don't know where

what do people even mean when they call someone a friend?
is it someone they’ve known long enough to trust?
is it someone they feel comfortable around?
is it someone who always approves of your decisions (or lack thereof) and acts supportive regardless of what you do?
is it just someone who still remembers your name?..

i believe that friendship is about sharing and brainstorming and learning things together (from life and from each other); about being a team. about information as well as about emotion

there, i said it. information. friends have to have things they want to talk about, other than their daily routines of boredom and frustration. friends are people you want to do things with. when somebody tells me, ‘hey, let’s write/translate/do this together’ is when i feel genuinely wanted and loved

after a certain insight, communication is no longer about raw attention. it’s about a common purpose. it’s something most online contacts totally lack. it’s why you strike up a conversation with someone, and the next day you’re both out of things to say. there’s nothing that really connects you. and by ‘really’, i mean, ‘REALLY’. tangibly. outside your skull 2 years ago

notwhatyouthinkFinding new friends

I can now finally say that I changed my friend group. I felt like I couldn’t be myself with my so called friends. So even thought it was hard because you just don’t change the people you hang out. It was a long prose’s but it’s done.
My new friends get me and actually like me. I’m not afraid of doing something wrong and that they’d run away. 2 years ago

PRETterI don't have a best friend anymore

I don’t have a best friend anymore, and other friendships are scarce and pathetic. I’m lonely; I need new friends in my life. 2 years ago
