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.

tryptychIt's cold, I'm sick, I'm depressed,

and I’m dressed like a hobo clown going to a funeral. 6 years ago

tryptychI look like shit

My work pants are falling down, my jeans are too tight. My socks all have little black marks on them from my leather shoes. My jackets are all old and ugly, or too tight. Jesus, I need to go shopping. I feel frumpy as hell. More bright colors, here I come. A new bra would be nice too. I hate not having any money. 6 years ago

tryptychfall wardrobe!

I have to save money for about a million reasons, but that doesn’t mean I can’t pump a little cash flow into lookin fancy, right? I bought a really super cute sweater dress, a pair of decent work pants, and I have more plans in the sweater, hat, and scarf department. I could stand to buy another pair of black leggings too. I’m especially keen on the hats idea. Not enough girls wear hats. Darling little chapeaux. Yes. 7 years ago


so far, I’m wearing my sparse collection of shirts that actually fit, and trying to wear dresses and heels when I go out at night. I really do have to go shopping. 7 years ago

tryptychweight loss

I can’t decide whether to start buying clothes now, even though I’m trying to lose weight, or forget about it until I hit my target. I guess I should just buy a few necessary things like jeans that fit and a nice button-up shirt or two. 7 years ago

bubsatoriaMy (informal) rules

I don’t want to look like a teenager or a college student anymore, since I’m not.

1. Big sloppy freebie t-shirts are only appropriate for sports, sleeping, and staying in the house.

2. The teenage graphic tees should be given away.

3. Jeans should be paired with cute shirts, tunics, or tanks and nice heels or flats.

4. Sneakers can be ok for during the day only.

5. Jeans should not drag on the floor and tailoring them is worth the money.

6. Skirts and/or dresses should be worn!!

7. Change up the shoes I wear. 7 years ago

This is a very unrealistic thing to try and accomplish. I just don’t care most of the time. I think when I added this goal I was feeling a little low.I am better now. 9 years ago
