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.

An Integral Step

So I put off contacting the admissions adviser longer that I wanted to, but it actually may have worked out for the better. I found a different school that may be a much better fit for what I am looking for. I was considering City University, but I just found Western Governor’s University. They are both online programs, which is the only way I could handle work and school right now. With this new school I can actually get my Master’s instead of just a teaching certificate, which is what I was really looking for.

The down side is that the Master’s program for the age group I want to teach requires a couple math classes that I didn’t get a chance to take before. I don’t know if I can just take these classes or if I have to earn another Bachelor’s degree. It shouldn’t take too long with the amount of credits I can transfer, if that’s the case. I’ve got an appointment with an adviser on Monday to discuss things in detail. Fingers crossed!


Matthew has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.
