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.

Dawn Matthews Here's a little song I wrote.. you might want to sing it note for note

get my degree (read all 8 entries…)
What I need to get done tonight:

I’m in an 8-week principles of financial accounting class that is kicking my butt and it’s only week #2. I have my first test tomorrow and I feel wholly unprepared. I’m tired from working today and feeling unmotivated to study. I’m about to drink a Red Bull and get to work. I know I said I was going to try and quit but I’ve been finding sleep really scarce lately. :(

SO, things I want to get done tonight:
Chapter 4 Homework (Due tonight!!)
Comprehensive Problem #1 (my first major project where I have to do everything from post financial transactions to a journal, prepare trial balances, do adjustments, and then prepare financial statements. 10% of my grade!)
Complete my test review

I feel like if I can just do these three things I’ll be a lot more prepared for my test tomorrow and a bonus is I don’t work tomorrow, so I just need to go knock this test out and then I’m free to crash.

Keeping my eye on the prize of this degree.
