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.

Wow. A lot of old friends I used to have…are gone. I made a new account because I missed you all dearly. But I’ve come back to this site shutting down. And it’s so sad.
But I’m just here to tell anyone new that if you have any questions. Feel free to ask. Veteran in this world. Or ya know on this site. I helped plenty before. And I don’t wanna stop. I mean. It makes me sad to know that wolves like me aren’t
here much anymore. I wish you luck!

Well, looks like this site is gonna be missed.

I don’t want to lose contact with the people who I’ve made friends with on here, so to those who want to stay in contact with me, the Skype address I use is lil wilfoe. Email address: (though I haven’t been responding to email much.)

Eh, why not? Facebook: I rarely go on Facebook, too, though..

People seem to be moving to, I’ve made an account on there, too. llirbwerdnadivad 4 months ago

Lord BearclawReality, it's all we have.

We live in an amazing world with wondrous sights and discoveries waiting to be made. With any luck we will soon be branching out into space.

Geologically the Earth is over 4.5 billion years old. Humans have only been present as a differentiated species for less than 1 million years.

Barring any disease or unforeseen accidents you will each live up to about 100 years, give or take. It took 4.5 billion years of the Earth’s existence and billions of years of evolution to produce the totally unique being that is You. There is no one else quite like You in the world, and there never will be again anyone exactly like You, ever.

Be proud. Stand tall. You are uniquely You – a member of the human race, the only sentient species this world has ever produced, and You have a finite lifespan to enjoy. Don’t waste it on impossible delusions and fairy dust. 4 months ago

I’m an older member, and i’m probably not remembered by anyone on here now. I used to be on here all the time, back what- 4 years ago? I deleted everything little less than a year ago due to frustration. But I kept my account. To see that this place is shutting down is heart breaking. I remember just reading peoples posts and just feeling so happy to see others like me. I was happy when people replied because I felt like someone truly cared.

So as a parting word let me say this: People are going to tell you you are wrong. They are going to laugh at you, mess with you, bully you, and can even send you to a mental hospital. But you must know that what is in your mind and yours alone is what is true. Because that is your world, not theirs. Don’t let any of the negativity bring you down. It took me forever, but I found my spirit animal and have talked to her ever sense. I cant shift, besides m-shifting, but I know i am happy where i am because ive met a wonderful spirit that helps me though anything. And although we cherish our spirits, I feel like we dont say thank you enough for being in our lives. If it weren’t for this place, 43things, I have no clue where I would be. I definitely wouldnt be who i am today.

So to everyone who got to experiance this, be glad it happened. Thank you so much for your support.

I have wondered these days why I continue to wear a mask for others. It seems this time around the mask is only parts of me Instead the usual where it’s hiding most of me.

I yearn to truly be open. Maybe I should stop the sleep cycle. 4 months ago

silent_watershope and optimism

In the darkest days and blackest nights,
All try to hide their troubling woes from sight,
try as they may; try as they might all is never forgotten in the flickering candlelight,
No matter how we wish to believe that all is seems lost,
Rest assured dear friends that everything lost means something gained as i write this in one of my final posts,
It was once explained to me how awesome this goal and the people here were and are,
Even after most of the originals left many others came and raised the bar,
Such wondrous things i learned about when i found this place,
Even though when we shared experiences and ponderous debates we never met face to face,
I share one more nugget of perspective as a token of happy gratitude,
So that none will lose the positive attitude,
In hope we find and see many and all ways to reach our goals in our times of despair,
With optimism we feel that surge of driving force that helps us to carry on no matter what our state of disrepair,
When you solidify these two beautiful things together it allows one to continue on their journey through the days and nights,
So in your blackest days and darkest nights remember these awesome emotional motivators for your most terrible plights,

MeccasaWell Then, This Shall be the Jackal's Last Yelp

43 things is shutting dowm.
Memories lost, pasts forgotten.
But we shall meet again my friends…

I’m pretty sure there will be other sites for us, people from all over to meet on, sites where other friendships will be made, in the past and in the future. No matter who or what you are, what your goals in life may be…

No matter your dreams, no matter your wishes and hopes…

We’ve all grown a lot since we’ve all arrived and joined this site. Whether we meant to or not…whether we came and found what we were looking for, or not, we all found something about this place to enjoy.

We went on a journey, all of us, and now it is over…all the kinships, all the love and hate, and this site…

It’s over…but only momentarily.

The past can never be overwritten.

I have learned and grown from being on this site. I have made relationships that may last a lifetime. I have had good days, and bad days on this site. I’ve discovered and done things I’ve never dreamed of. I’ve found information I’ve never thought of existing here.

And so, even though this site may end, I will still be around. As I’m sure all of you will be, on other places. So I leave you , with these final messages:

Question everything.

The only person who knows yourself is you,and dont let anyone tell you otherwise.

We’ve found a kind of paradise in a flowers bloom.
We’ve seen the end of a mystic land so close it meets the parting sun.
We’ve shared the thoughts that two could share, we feel the truth, magic that we send…

Searching for something new
Isle of Gold in flowers bloom

We’ve heard a kind of paradise beyond the desert’s dunes.
We’ve walked the earth in solitude, so cold we need the warmth of sun.
We’ve lived the life that we could live, we see the truth magic that begins…

Searching for something new
Isle of Gold in flowers bloom

We’ve found a kind of paradise, below a sky so new.
We’ve weaved a web of mystery so wide, we need the light of day.
We’ve worn the cloak of secret lives, we’ve seen the truth, magic that we send…

Searching for something new
Isle of Gold in flowers bloom

so when will it end?
so when, when will we meet, my friend? 5 months ago

Lord BearclawScience

No dragons. No werewolves. No moon vampires. No lunar gods. No air.

This is what makes the photo possible – Science. Space travel, medicine, cellphones, computers, air conditioners, cars, escalators, plastics, hot and cold running water, refrigeration, convection/conduction stoves, microwaves, synthetic fabrics, electricity, CDs, DVDs, MP3 players, prepackaged food, food delivery, air travel, vision enhancements, prosthetics, beauty and hygiene products, flushable toilets, television, Doppler radar, solar panels, hybrid engines, etc. etc. etc. the list goes on and on and on and on and on interminably almost of all the products, services, and advancements that humanity has devised, implemented, or achieved all because of Science.

If you think that Science is “just another” concept that “really doesn’t do anything”, and that “magic” is real, then get rid of every single thing in your life that Science has brought you. No more clothes that you didn’t make yourself from cotton or wool produced on your farm. No more pasteurized milk from the store – milk it yourself from your cow. No more eyeglasses or contacts. No more wristwatches, cellphones, laptops, computers. Throw them out. No more toilet – you’ll have to go dig an outdoor outhouse, and when the hole eventually fills up you’ll have to cover it over with dirt and dig a new one. Have fun using the privy in Winter. Throw out everything in your house made of plastic – CDs, DVDs, combs, brushes, buttons, shoes, etc. etc. etc. No more medicines – not even aspirin – sorry, but you’ll have to brew your own willowbark tea for that. Having pain? Too bad. No more inoculations against chicken pox, measles, pertussis, etc.

Now replace any one item or service that Science has brought you with “magic”. Go ahead. Let’s see it.

The best thing that I can hope for all of you as this site shuts down is LEARN. Keep looking for the answers – find out what is real and what is fantasy. Keep an open mind but don’t become gullible. Question everything – especially anything that asks you to trust in unproven or undocumented hypotheses. Remember what P.T. Barnum once said, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” And lastly, remember that you are a Human Being, a member of the only sentient, self-aware species this planet has ever produced. You are the product of 4.5 billion year of evolution. Act like it. 5 months ago

Wahyah7 years

Is how long this site has been in my life. I do not and cannot believe it’s shutting down. I have met my best friends on this site and others who I miss dearly. I guess we’ll have to find somewhere else to go. 5 months ago


Weirdly enough, it really is frightening for me to see this place close down.
As I’ve said before, I cared for people here and was cared for. I’ve learned a lot by socializing with the people I met here. I loved this place as a community… as the community scattered I stuck around. 5 years ago, back when the original “something” chat thrived. That was how I met most of these fine lasses and lads, some of who were considered by me a menace, in the end, you don’t value things the way they are, until you lose them.
And lost them we did.
Everything kept changing and it didn’t feel right. But I went with it for quite a while.
This is the end line for this little, humble, loyal community.
And as we close to the end of the ride, after a very long time, it just finally seems right.
Thank you all for being here, throughout the years, listening. I did not achieve my goal, but the goal was what changed my perspective towards things on a bigger scale, with the help of my younger aspirations and people whom I, more or less, shared an interest with, with some more than the others. There is still a few members posts I would like to witness before it shuts, but I don’t take anything for granted.
It has been an enlightening run. Wish you all only for the best.

porcelainangelHello & Goodbye.

So, I haven’t been on this site for at least 3 years. I’ve had to create (many) new accounts, and apparently this is going to be my last entry and my last account. I wish everyone luck, even though I don’t know hardly any of you. My name’s Katie. I used to be known as “xxXDyerxxX.” any who, I heard this site was shutting down, or something? that’s too bad. a lot of my closest friends (to this day) were found on here. but, I just wanted to wish you all luck. I hope that you all find a new site and regroup there and never give up on your goals that you had here.
so, best of luck to all of you. x 5 months ago
