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.

I'm now a CSR at TD Canada Trust.

So in plain english, that means I’m a bank teller at the TD bank. And it’s awesome! I’ve only been there 3 weeks, but I’m enjoying it so far. I was totally stressed out for the first 2 weeks I was there. I even had nightmares about it, it was horrible! But things are better now. The thing that stressed me out was that I’ve never had a job where there was so little training. They seriously let me touch the mouse & keyboard a few times on my first 2 days and then, on my third day, they gave me my very own wicket. And I didn’t even know how to make a withdrawal from an account yet, one of the most basic banking transactions! It was crazy! I had to ask for help on every single thing I did, which obviously annoyed my customer as well as the customer of the CSR who had to help me instead of doing his/her own stuff. It really was awful. But now that I’m a few weeks into the job, I’ve got most of the basics down, but there’s still sooooooo much that I haven’t got a clue about. I like having people come to my wicket and getting to chat with them while I work. That never happened at my previous job, where hardly anyone ever came into the office at all. My new co-workers are all really friendly, it’s great! I’m so glad that I have this new job. Can’t figure out why I didn’t leave my crappy old job years ago. Getting fired for no reason turned out to be a wonderful thing!
