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.

Jessica Valentine 3 more months!

My parents have agreed to sign papers while in America so i can get married at 17 :). Everything is being worked out and it looks like we will be getting married May 25th! I am so excited and can’t believe after almost 5 years it is finally going to happen! 21 months ago

Jessica Valentine Getting closer

There is a possibility of it working out for next summer. Next summer my family will be going to America for 4 months and Jesse will be coming with us. We are going to work on convincing my parents to sign the papers for me to get married at 17 rather than wait another 5 months until i am 18 then having to fly all the way back to North America to get everything worked out. My mom actually mentioned it which put the idea in my head so if we can get my dad to agree it looks like it could happen but I don’t want to get my hopes up. 2 years ago

Jessica Valentine Over 4 years

Things have been going really well for us. We are really happy together and things have been really great :). Next summer my family will be going to America for the Summer and we are working on having Jesse go with us to meet my family and begin to work on our papers and start figuring those things out (he is from Canada and i am from the US). After we get back it will be about 6 months until i turn 18 and then i will move out and we plan to get married in Thailand. Less than 2 years now and after all the time that has passed already it is really begining to feel close :) 2 years ago

Jessica Valentine 3 and a half years

We are doing very very well and have been together over 3 years now. We do everything together and are still going strong. I am supposed to be allowed to go on official dates and be able to go where ever with out bring another person when i am 16 this February and that will definitely make things nicer. 3 years ago
