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.

list three things every day that made me happy (read all 55 entries…)
November 17, 2010

1)Observing Mr. Daly. Oh, how I do so miss his class. Getting the opportunity to sit in his classes once more really brings me back. I love him and I love his class. He has such a dry sense of humour, just how I like it! I love to talk to him afterward too. He gives great advice and he’s just a pleasure to talk to even if he is a little tired and apathetic. I love to bring a smile to his face :)
2)Bumping into one of my old math teachers. Since I’m observing at my old high school, I get the chance to bump into a lot of my old teachers. Today I bumped into one of my old math teachers! Even though I hate math, he taught very well and I remember a lot of the techniques that he taught. I thought back to all the things we have been talking about in intro to education lately and how, when a student comes back and gives a compliment to the teacher, that is absolutely what they live for. So, I thought I would try it and see his reaction. I told him that I enjoyed his class more than any of my college math classes and I remember more of what he taught me than what they have in terms of good technique. I could see him beaming and trying in vain to suppress his smile. We chatted for a bit before I took my leave but, I’m glad I was able to make his day and it made me happy to make him so happy :) Also, I was surprised he remembered me when he saw me! I guess it really goes to show that students can make an impact on a teacher. I had always been friendly to him and we would talk a lot after class when I had him. He had me twice during my high school career. Today, when he saw me he went “Oh God!” It made me so happy that he recognized me! So, we both made each other’s day!
3)Delicious cafeteria muffin. Before I went to my Spanish test today, I stopped by the cafe and grabbed a muffin. I love their muffins so much and today I tried a chocolate chip one. It was as great as the other varieties! Haha! Sometimes, these muffins are the pinnacle of my day!
