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.

ssk1dThey can have my dead body, but never my obedience! ANARCHY

Because of the simple fact, once i get out of house arrest or “home detention” they say because. I’m only 16 and underage but once all this cunt ass shit is over ill probably be sent away to rehab again.
i hate the government the one power they have if you think about it is the all mighty authority figure but its fake you can knock it down as long as you aren’t a slave to the paper, the paper that is money.

I went to court on Tuesday and the judge said I am a free woman. He said that I had earned my freedom in spite of many obstacles…..I feel like a normal person again. It is so great not to have to get permission to go to Walmart anymore. I really feel so grateful, now I’m really free. I am committed to maintaining my newfound life which includes NOT being a criminal anymore. Bottom line…....CHECK THIS ONE OFF MY LIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

drmorphineabout another month

hi, im 16 on HA for 3 months while waiting for my court date. i got my drivers license suspended which is probably the worst part. Plus i o my parents 5000 dollars for the lawyer. I really miss just chilling out with my friends and smokin cigarettes.

man christ ha for 550 days? thats a long time, gl with that >.< 7 years ago

Hautewasn't so bad

house arrest wasn’t as bad for me as most people since i have a ton of stuff to do around the house. it even made it seem kind of a joke, since it was designed to be an equivalent to jail time. somehow playing video games online and watching premium channels on tv never really reminded me of jail.

i was able to get out of jail time since i was attending community college. i only got one to two hours of homework a night.

a major downside was having to wake up at 6 am every friday morning to go take a drug test. also paying for house arrest was not fun, but it was better than being in jail.

another downside was not being able to go out with friends on the weekends, but luckily it only lasted 90 days, and i made sure to celebrate the friday i got released. 7 years ago
