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.

StacieJungDay 1

Okay, I’m not hung over today so not needed a drink tonight should be a tiny bit easier. Still a little tired and needing more coffee. I want my brain back. I have things I want to accomplish and being down or tired isn’t helping. I’m hoping the clearer head and cheerier outlook will make what seems like a sacrifice worth it. So on to my next 30 day goal of writing 3 hours a day. Looking forward to productivity, better health, better appearance and a happier life. 8 months ago

scrotorActually did around 40

Forgot to post when I did this.. At the time I was drinking almost daily… not getting drunk all the time, but there was that as well. I am glad I did it because it kinda reset my need for it.. I found other ways to deal with boredom and stress and other senseless reasons I found to drink.. I mean, I still drink.. but I can take it or leave it and most times prefer to leave it now. 21 months ago

I’m already a week in. Doing well, and feeling good. Its really hard when you have an alcoholic GF and there isn’t much to do with her that does not involve drinking. I may want to continue this not drinking thing indefinitely but we’ll see how it goes… 2 years ago

brokenglasstheoryA weekend of bad decisions

So this weekend has been fairly crappy. I have made a plethora of bad decisions.
Episode 1: Started out innocently enough with a few drinks and dinner….then I ended up hooking up with this girl who was very gross and I didn’t realize it until the next morning. She is as sweet as the day as long but….lets just say I was very very drunk. I know that is a piss poor excuse but every time I think about it my stomach turns.
Episode 2: After kickball today I was riding my bike home and there was this chick trying to parallel park behind my car. I was a little buzzed and I called her out on rubbing my car…she proceded to call me a cock sucker and then pulled a gun out of her purse. Nothing happened. I just rode away.
Episode 3: There better not be a 3rd episode. I am cleaning out all the booze, beer, and liquor I have in my house. Starting tomorrow I am going to go 30 days without drinking.

I am tired of having to drink to be fun or have a good time. If I dont stop now or at least get it under control, things could get very bad.

Wish me luck, I really need some inspiring words. 2 years ago

brokenglasstheoryDay 1 part 2

So I really wanted to quit my job today…I want a drink so friggin badly. My boss was an amazing cunt to me today and then when I get home I hear two gay guys having some huge argument. I tried to drown them out with loud music, but they just talked louder…. this is the first time I have ever wished I had some angry thrash metal music. Fuck I need a drink. Im not going to, but fuck I need one. A nice tall pint glass full of mostly gin and some tonic. 2 years ago

brokenglasstheoryDay 1

So far so good…although I remembered this morning I signed up for a Pub Crawl on 6/2….I am still going to do it, but I havent decided if I am going to drink or not…seems silly to go on a pub crawl and not drink…right? 2 years ago


I have been on a bit of a drinking bender the past few weeks….I haven’t gotten drunk everyday, but I have drank every single day. Time for a detox period. 2 years ago
