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.

That’s it. Is it hard? Very. Will it take a long time? Possibly. But hey, its about time that I got down and did this. Honestly, I want to get to a point where I’ve written a good song, but for now that’s not the goal. All I want to do is write a song. Any song. A complete, finished, polished up song. It doesn’t matter if its easy. It doesn’t matter if its simple.

Writing a song is a great mode of self expression. It’s also a good stress reliever because there are many stessors that happen in college. I will achieve this by brainstorming lyrics and writing something I am proud of. 7 months ago

You think I’m a good girl

GreenNimrodFinally done

So roughly a month ago I told myself I had to finish some of the songs I had already started working on years ago. So I sat down with a drum software that I had never used before and made a basic track, then recorded the guitars and the bass which I had known exactly how I wanted them on top of the drums. After that I tried out my lyrics to the instrumental track and tweaked them a little – done. I’ve finally finished writing my first song. Now it’s just a matter of recording the vocals which I will be doing as soon as I got my mic booth up and ready to be used. 9 months ago

Well, MORE than a song —an entire album/project but, baby steps, right? I want to learn how to write a song. The songwriting format. Come up with different concepts. I want to come up with a project that challenges and changes the world and how we think. I know, I may be getting ahead of myself. But, I want it to be to the likes of Tupac, Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan, John Lennon – not exactly like them, but to tackle the same type of subjects, matters – but on another level, also. I want to tackle consciousness. Third eye. Pineal gland. 9 months ago
