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.

- The Robots.

pelkito be a better gf

I’ve realised that its high time i change myself and the way i think and act…i need to change what is bad about me…accept that i can also go wrong..
i want to understand him better and never start an argument or never walk out of a situation..or never force him to do sth that he is not comfortable doing or never abuse him with curses or never insult him when i’m angry…for that i need to completely delete ‘anger’ out of my life.
it does me no good…just harm..and i cant think straight when m angry so i end up saying all the wrong things and do all the wrong things which later i regret very much but i change that…
also if i don;t remember most things we did together, i’ll try and pretend i do cux telling the truth only hurts him more..but its not that i forget bcoz he hasnt touched my heart. No. its cux i cant remember.literally cant.
i only want to feel love, laughter and happiness. nothing more. and m gonna achieve this through a bunch of gratitude and appreciation and no anger.
please me, help me become a better person-a better girlfriend! 16 months ago

I cleaned some of the house and made delicious peanut butter cookies today. My boyfriend came home and commented on the lovely smell of the peanut butter cookies. He ate one of them and said it’s good, then helped me put clothes away. He jokingly said that I cleaned some today and baked – “What happened to my girlfriend?” I laughed and told him that I’m feeling better. I want to keep up with this goal. :) 2 years ago

Boyfriend’s hours have been cut at work from originally 40 to now 20. They just can’t afford him as manager. We’re going to probably be struggling for a bit, trying to save our money as much as possible. Luckily he can get a job with his friend who works at a grocery store. He might end up working in the deli (whereas he’s currently working in a restaurant) and make approximately two dollars less than he’s currently making, but it’s something. I want to be there for him With more affection than before. He did say he’s not that afraid because of the job he’s going to get with his friend. He’s excited for it. 2 years ago

I cooked Salisbury steak tonight for supper. M enjoyed it. I need to cook more. M is the primary cook in our household. I definitely need to make more of an effort with it. 2 years ago

I haven’t been treating M right lately. I need to change that. The stresses of moving into an apartment and starting a new job are just excuses, anyway. 2 years ago
