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.

Ok this is from a while ago.. Wanted to remind myself of the summers I worked at music festivals and spent all my time outdoors. Now working in an office so the bohemian lifestyle is easy to forget at work.. :( 21 months ago

persistentblissMy Job Lost Me

My job lost me mid summer and released me into the idea of considering my true desires & passions. It appears that quite possibly I have been a repressed bohemian for years now. My mind wanders and attempts to escape convention and reason. After raising a fine young man, I say to myself, “why not?” I am now ready to follow my heart as a windswept feather in a billowing breezw. I am the curator of my own contentment, lover of shoes and books and a spiritual glutton eager to live out fully and fiercely the true tenets of my beliefs. God is a great big GOD!! His creation is splendid and it welcomes my honest exploration. I am prepared to embrace life wholeheartedly. I am excited to forge ahead into the coming year discovering, experiencing, tasting and touching this thing called life. 3 years ago

ladyleatherneck1carry me, Caravan, take me away

Very rarely do I have the opportunity to take a vacation (you know, that whole Military thing), but fortunately for me, the whole base shuts down during the Christmas holiday, and being the little pagan heathen that I am, I don’t celebrate Christmas. I have decided to just get in the truck, tent and sleeping bag in tow, and just drive around for 2 weeks. I want to see new places, meet new people, and explore California, maybe Nevada… hell, maybe Indiana, who knows! My birthday is on the 18th of December, so it will be a nifty little B-day adventure as well <3 VIVE LA VIE DE BOHEME! 3 years ago

One of the cornerstones of the bohemian ideology is the drive of the human spirit to create art and need to see beauty. I have gone without both for far too long, living in the sterile environments of military barracks and offices. Everything feels so regimented, and there is little color or design detail to catch the eye. The whole thing feels like a prison! I have been on desk duty for the last 6 months because of my accident, and have just learned that I will be on it for another 6 months until I recover from my hip surgery :(. I have just about had it with the boring walls and ugly carpet in my office, so I am going to make a painting and hang it on my wall behind my computer screen so I can look at somehting beautiful during the day. Tres chic, et tres boheme! 3 years ago
