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.

In which disguise were you my cohort play,
sitting silently aside my watcher.
Just felt some tender warmth under my arms,
that your hands were so near.
Your dreams knitted around the day,
a safe mind grabbed some worries deep,
sobbing sounds of that one and half cup of tea with you,
as remnants are hiccups from some clamouring corners.

Those streaks etched in the ground by us,
as if a different life this side.
Dragging an oak stem to pass time,
to follow that lonely ant till late,
keeping hope in pace to trace its heaped treasure.

Bestowing on me those sparkling round marbles o’
mendicant dervish;
you were left with none to play.
To fine tune with my height,
i find you tilted often leaning in snapshots.

The sap syrup dribbling from the higher palms,
sashaying down onto your agape;
your eyes on those unripe guavas,
a priority strike of your mod-us always clear.
Come for returning my share of custard apples,
those vineyard whispers, spontaneous jibes,
I being witness to some puerile moments,
atleast return to give an attendance of our alliance. 6 months ago

nidzee2My only way to Jannah

I’m in love with My Hijab
Which will give me a great sawaab

I think girls look beautiful this way
More than body we put our Faith on display

My Lord loves me for who I am
He loves me more than anyone else can

And when I’m lyin on my bed
I think until my eyes are red

How can anyone be so great?
Whenever I knock,He opens up the gate

With so many of my bad deeds I walk in
And no doubt he forgives all our sin

Many at times I get worldly distractions
But I need to hold on to righteous actions

And now I’m scared ov going astray
So I beg Him to show me the right way

I beg Him to guide me all the way
To guide me through night & day

And to make me stronger in Emaan
As He is Ar-Rahman

Who has given us the Furqaan
The miraculous Qur’an

After having the Quran recited
This is what I’ve decided

The Qur’an & the Sunnah
Is the only way to enter Jannah! 13 months ago

Ms_WriterDear writer's Block

Writer’s block, Oh writer’s block,
I hate you so much.
I can’t do anything right, when I don’t have the magic touch.
I write mumble jumble, who knows what, all day long.
My writer’s block is the reason for this sad song.
Oh talent, please talent, came back to me.
So I can let myself, my writer’s self, run forever free.
I can’t stand to be in this unknown shock.
So let me be, Dear Writer’s Block. 20 months ago
