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.

They’re both so unable to relax that it’s contagious. 2 years ago

☠ dustball jin ☠Drama ahead

My parents are back from their holiday. They want to see me tonight. I was on the phone with my mother but my dad took the phone and asked that I have dinner with them. It’s unlike him to take the phone like that. I have a bad feeling about this. It’s obvious he’s going to admonish me. I wish once in my life I could share a moment with my father without having to be on my guard. My relationship with him is pretty crappy at this time. 2 years ago

☠ dustball jin ☠Untitled

Not properly done yet, I’ll write an entry on this when I have time. This is all a bit unexpected and I’ve been feeling quite down because I don’t feel like I’ve done anything to deserve this but on the other hand, neither have I done anything to deserve much of the $#!+ I’ve been through these last two years, so I guess it evens out. I’m finally done with my exams and my depression seems less extreme than a few months ago so I believe I would have gotten there little by little anyway, let’s just see this temporary support as a little help kick. And a welcome one, I can’t deny that. 3 years ago
