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.

AaminahRaks is very easily distracted...mostly by shiny things!

Have a totally different life by this time next year (read all 10 entries…)

Be a Belly dance instructor- Closer still! I’ve been helping my teacher teach two nights a week, and she even said she will help me get started this fall with teaching at the same place she does. And we even plan on going to get certified next year. So I’ve actually got a lot going toward this goal.

Have a car- I think I could have one by mid summer…

Have a different job or be happier at my current job- I’ve got a new job!! I start tomorrow so yeah, this is done. To hell with my twatwaffle of a boss!!

Have some real friends my age that I actually hang out with- I think my new job may help with this. I’ll be working in the mall and one of my former coworkers (the one I got along with the best) will also be working in the mall so I think I might have an easier time making friends in a different environment

Go on more dates- Again I think my new job may help with this as I’ll be working in the mall so it will be a little easier to meet guys. =)

Have my own place or be in the process of getting my own place- My new job will be paying more per hour and I will be getting more hours so I should be able to actually save money toward this.

Have at least two of the tattoos I plan to get done- I’ll start on my next one this spring/summer.

Enroll in school- coming this fall….lol =)


Taz 2014 is a year of doing

Oh how I wish

I had a cheer to give you, not only for your progress but for your use of the word twatwaffle. :)
