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.

Melissa PolizziI Must Learn to Cook

In a year I will begin a life of my own by starting college. I will be living by myself for the first time several states away from any family. I am completly hopeless. I know nothing of housework or other things that go along with living without parential guidance. I will have roomates, but I can not be dependent on them nor expect them to know any more than i do of living alone. To start my journey into adulthood, I want to learn to cook. Only simple things that a college student is capable of. I hope to get this accomplished by next fall! 2 weeks ago

It’s not that I’ve never cooked before – I have. When I was 13, I used to make a mean veggie lasagne, but, somehow, over time, I’ve just lost the knack, or the flair and creativity that I used to have.

I mean, a lot of people get this, right? You go away to university, and through the stress of all your classes and work you just end up cooking the quickest and most carb-rich stuff you can lay your hands on, right? Ramen, chips, pasta, microwave rice. But, I’ve had some friends who’ve put me to shame over the years. Yes, I’ve occasionally made Yorkshire puddings or tea loaf, but I want to make a meal that isn’t just ‘fish+2veg+rice’ or stir fry.

I’ve been asking for people’s help and I’ve already had some recipes from the internet, from friends and from my Nana … Now, to the cooking … 1 month ago
