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.

get tested


Entries from everyone


Going tomorow… i have actually have a symptom of one of the std’s, so now i know i deffinetly have one, but i need the medicine. I haven’t been sexualyl active in a year but it still sucks. I wish I got tested earlier. I had an anxiety attack at work. This really. Makes me hate myself. I can’t believe myself last summer. Why was I so careless. And so stupid. It just sucks because I am so different now, I haven’t been active for over a year but its still in me. This disease. And it just makes me so angry seeing the person I got it from still going around doing what he did to me. I don’t like it. I don’t like me. I just. I wish I had someone to talk to.

I’m scared to death and I can guarantee right when I walk into the clinic tomorow i’m going to cry my eyes out. I’m so scared. 6 years ago

Madelineoh gosh

and i think i will be relieved. 6 years ago

CoreyKThe impression that i get

I’m not a coward,
I’ve just never been tested
I’d like to think that if I was
I would pass 6 years ago


Whether or not i actually believe i might have something, it is intimidating to even think about going to get tested. ignorance is bliss, but conscience is a bitch. 7 years ago

CoreyKI'm sure I'm fine

But, it would definately be a good thing to do. I wouldn’t want to pass anything along to someone I love. 8 years ago

CaspurWasn't that scary

I am clean. Just like I thought. 9 years ago
