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.

Tegan SeymourFinally have a Moving Out Date

But unfortunately it’s next year. It’s being set back so that we can have a lot more money for our overseas trip instead. 3 weeks ago

I’ll be moving out sometime between August and December. So excited! This goal has been on my list for years! I’m currently saving up and looking at room decorating ideas for inspiration. 4 weeks ago


Tegan SeymourNew Years Resolution 2 - It's Set for November

huntereginaFreedom/Responsibility

It took me years, like six or so. I always thought that it would be the most fun adventure to do. I moved out with my boyfriend and yes it is fun. Yet sharing space with another person is very different thing than sharing space with siblings or parents. Level or responsibility rises threefold. Paying for everything is the least of the worries. House needs upkeep, even if you are renting. Dusting takes place almost every day. I also have a cat, this is a little too much, because I work, full-time student, mommy to a kitten that was 4 weeks and was crying. I am also a mom to my boyfriend, because he is still oblivious to many things that women do around the house. 1 month ago

There are a lot of people with this same goal! I’m making a goal of moving out within the month! I hope the money won’t be as tight as I expect it to be.

RunnergalUntitled

at the same time i dont wanna live above my means
it’s like i see both sides of it now
i don’t think its the only way for me to be young-
i don’t like the feeling of wasting away my youth and twenties at home .. but i want it to be an honest expereience and i also don’t want to feel the pressure to avoid the life i’m happily living because i gotta pay rent, eat etc. well i guess that pressure exists at home too..
potentially even more so. I/’m scared because right now I’m basically just getting by …
It would be more hoenst to move out.. but if i cant be real at home thats not fair either.
I’m wanting to be protective of the life I’m coming to be happy with, andas bad as I want to move out I don’t wanna be swayed if it means giving up thee work i;ve done already 3 months ago


RunnergalUntitled

is not really healthy for me Not to move out because im punishing myself for not having a higher paying job etc

sometimes you gotta just say what the hell and let the universe catch you

jsut a matter of seeing how i can balance that and getting a new car… 3 months ago


JamtonSoon

As I start my new job soon, hopefully I should be able to afford to move out soon. I’m currently living with my Grandparents, who brought me up from being a toddler. I love them very much, but I miss having the independence of being self reliant. Above all I miss having PRIVACY. For some reason they don’t seem to realise that I should be allowed my own space that is just mine, and they often come into my room without knocking or checking that it’s okay.

I’m 23 years old, I’ve lived alone for 3 years, and it’s really starting to become a drag after being back home for a year and a half. I need to get away.

I keep looking at nice houses that are affordable, and I’ve seen some really pleasant ones. I think I need to hold out for maybe another month, but in the meantime that allows me to start accruing the things I will need, such as a kettle and toaster etc.

I’m so excited to get back my independence and feel like an adult again. 6 months ago
