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.

pass the ASVAB test
Trouble with the ASVAB.

I’m really interested in joining the Army. I dropped out of high school, and got my GED. Having a GED, I need to score a 50, or higher, in order to enlist in the Army. I’ve taken the ASVAB twice now. I scored a 36 the first time, and a 37 the second time. I’m not an unintellegent guy, I mean, I don’t understand why I’m scoring so low. What can I do to pass the ASVAB this third time? If I don’t pass this next retake, I’ll have to wait 6 months in order to retake it again.


Janelle Sennert is working on some real fun stuff. :)


I took it about a year ago. I didn’t end up enlisting, but I remember how awful the test seemed. When I actually went to MEPS and took it, I was intimidated beyond belief because of all the semi-irritated looking military personnel walking around. I ended up doing alright once I forgot where I was and the scruitinizing looks I was getting from the Navy guy sitting directly behind me monitoring the whole process. Anyway, my recruiter took me and another guy home and the guy I was riding with scored a 31. It was also his second time to take it. What he did rather than sign up to take it again right away was take about three weeks to a month to go through an ASVAB study guide he got at Half Price Books and the third time he took it, he made like a 50-something. I don’t know if you’ve already taken it again because your post is like a month old, but if you still need/want help with it, I have no problem helping you study. Let me know, and good luck in whatever you do! :)

I’m waiting to pick my job in the military as we speak. The asvab is broken down in sections. What you want to raise is your “afqt” score… Your afqt score, or armed forces qualification test score, is based off of 4 sections in the asvab. When sombody says “oh I got a 87 on my asvab” (which is pretty damn good) there not talking about there overall asvab score because there really is no such thing… They are stating their afqt score which is (LISTEN UP!) mathamatics knoledge, arithmatic reasoning, word knoledge, and paragraph comprehention. If you study those portions, your golden. The other sections of the test are known as apptitude testing. They are designed to see how proficient you are in a given spacific feild, this is why you see, mechanical comp. And so on. If you fail miserably at the test, it won’t kill your afqt score, while at the same time if you get 100% on mechanical comp. All that means is that you have a knac for that thing and more mechanical related jobs will open up to you as opposed to a science related job such chemist and what not. There are sites and books to help you. and also asvab books areAWSOME!!! Avab for dummies will explain the asvab in detail and help you prepare but I prefer other asvab study aids. Hope this helps annnd good luck
