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.

I think home is in Florida. See my theory is when Im there. I feel happy and complete. I want to move to Florida, but the issue is that up and moving a whole family would be hard. Not only that, but I would be leaving other parts of my family behind in Iowa. 2 years ago

Yours Truly, Cate

Clarionscall89City of Wire & Stone.

It’s a fact: my heart will forever belong to the only city I’ve ever known inside and out: New York City.

It’s the cluster of land where people are made, dreams come true and where the impossible becomes possible. In my experiences I call New York love because I’ve never been more enchanted by any other city than the one where lights never stop shining. It’s more than just a concrete jungle, it’s the intricate yet vibrant and diverse community that allows this city to be itself-a living tapestry where every person tells a unique story yet still manages to share one thing in common: calling this city their home.

There’s so many things about this city that makes my heart swoon, but as of late It’s been hard to find things to love about the place I live, as gentrification sets in, the face of NYC that I once knew is now disappearing. It breaks my heart, it’s vibrancy slowly becoming soulless as times change.

As of late it’s been difficult for me to make friends, I’ve been at odds with my family and nothing seems right anymore, but every so often I can still see the glimmer in the eyes of my city’s face. I guess at this point, I’m unsure where I belong, I don’t know if I can picture myself living in NYC for a number of reasons. It’s a bummer when you feel like you don’t belong anywhere, home may be where the heart is but my heart doesn’t know where to rest its head.

My goal is to find comfort, but only time will tell. 3 years ago
