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.

intoshadowI've decided it's not important in my life right now.

And that’s okay. Maybe I’ll pick it up again. 6 months ago

nataliYUH.weird. but good.

Well, I didn’t end up going on a date with the person I expected to. That person backed out and was all, SORRY BUT I’M GETTING BACK WITH MY EX. I’m like … da fuuuuck?

Oh well, because the next day (today), I ended up hanging out with this guy I’ve been sorta.. getting to know lately. It’s been hard for me to figure him out, but I definitely think he likes me. I mean, we kinda kissed at the end of the day. ;) 9 months ago

A guy picked me up from a drop-off point between my current city and hometown, took me to lunch, to walk around downtown Disney, and then home. We hella talked.
Was that a date?

I mean, I don’t get the hype.

Maybe I’m looking for like a /date/.
Something movie-esque or something.
It’s all troublesome really. 9 months ago

nataliYUH.ok, fine..

I’ll admit it; the only reason I added this goal is because it’s happening soon.

I already DID want it, but I didn’t want it to be a GOAL exactly, I just wanted it to happen on its own, you know? 9 months ago

At FILC 2014, I ate a lot of dates.

When I returned home, a few guys I met while there hit me with the fin.
Maybe I’ll go on a date with one of them when I go home for Spring break? Whatever. 10 months ago

Gho-s-tAll systems go

This is finally happening. If someone told me 2 days ago that Im going on a date tomorrow, I would’ve laughed and thrown a cupcake at that person. But that is exactly whats happening. I thought that after hooking up in a parking lot at 3am, asking to go on a date would be a step backwards and as such would not be anxiety inducing.

I invited her to the movies tomorrow, she said yes. She even offered to drive me to the doctors beforehand.

Man I guess this is really going to happen. Im apprehensive as I type this though not as much as I am excited. This will be a new experience for me. Im tempted to overthink things like I usually do but Ive decided to surf this one out. Whether it leads to something more doesnt matter right now.

Only thing Im worried about is that this girl is way too keen, she is nt so subtle about sex always hinting at it, probably because the subject makes me uneasy. I dont think I am ready to do it even though I want to. The problem is that this girl is crazy attractive I might not be able to stop even if I wanted to. 13 months ago

Gho-s-tNot sure if I

should just give up on this goal. And this is not coming from a dark place. 13 months ago

Elizabeth1310nothing to declare

Still questioning whether this is something I should have on a to do list – I wanted to see how many of my 43 things I would have completed by the end of the year and I think it is highly unlikely that this will be one of them. 13 months ago
