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.

DoveVaderyeah, here I am world!

Well, it was my dream in life to move back home.. to Cali! For over 15 years! All day, every day, all I could think was.. if I just move back to LA everything will be ok.No snow, it will be warm, and sunny! I’ll be happy! I’ll be free! I’ll be comfortable, have friends, blagh blagh.. Well, I’ve been here for a year, have no friends, feel lonelier than I ever have in my life, its too expensive, dont even have gas money to go anywhere, no money to go out, have to pay for parking everywhere! Its loud, dirty, gross, homeless people sleeping outside in my alley.. FUCKO! WTF was I thinking?? All I do is miss the snow, and the calm, and the quiet, and my friends, and dive bars, and … nature, no traffic, camping, everything within a half hour drive, man i could go on and on! I hate it here and want to go back! A year later, and I cant get used to it, and dont know if I ever will! Stay where you are ! dont bother! its crowded enough here! 21 months ago

It has been almost 2 years since I’ve been back. Moving back home was my biggest dream for 6 years. Although it was under circumstances I wish my family didn’t have to go through, I am so happy to be home. 2 years ago
