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.

Enjoy my youth

SweetPea7It's not that my youth is over...

But…being an unmeasurable goal and considering I think I’m doing a pretty great job at this…well, it’s no longer just being demoted on the list…it’s being moved to the done list. 6 years ago

SweetPea7This is also being demoted...

since I’m doing a fabulous job on this one.
My trip to DC this last weekend and activities as of late, as well as upcoming plans/events/trips have this goal locked-up in my mind. This weekend was fabulous and since my friends and I managed to stay up to 4 & 4:30am goofing around (even though the bars close at 2 there)—I think “Enjoying my youth” is pretty strongly in the “Done; but, ongoing” column. :) A perfect weekend, from start to finish: nice dinners, dancing, darts, walking all over the mall, many photo ops in front of monuments, Portraits of the Presidents, Georgetown shopping & house party, more dancing, horse jumping show, laughs, laughs, and more laughs…I think that about sums it up. Oh yeah, and I can’t forget the 3:30am swim races we had. :) 7 years ago

SweetPea7It's all relative

Our youth did fly away.
Escaped before we knew its value.
How much fun, we did have that day.
All those days, it’s my ignorance I now rue.

If only I’d known how to play the game;
But then, it wouldn’t have been the same. 7 years ago

crazysweetbeing 20

I’m 20 yrs old (which still freaks me out a little), but I feel like all I’m doing is worrying about the stuff on my list instead of just celebrating my youth. I don’t know why it’s so hard to just live in the moment. When I’m 30 (that freaks me out even more!), I wanna say that I had the time of my life in my 20s doesn’t everybody? 8 years ago
