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.

Taking the test tomorrow :)


I’ve got the paprwork all done now to go take the test :)
Very excited.


I finished the writing part. Now I just have to go back, get a voucher, and take the real test somewhere else.


I’m almost done except I have to do the writing portion which I didn’t have time to finish the last time I went in. If I do well enough on that though (I should) then I’ve got paperwork to get it funded by the state and then I can go take the test somewhere! Yup. So that’s happening. Hopefully I’ll have that finished by sometime next week and then the actual G.E.D. sometime soon after.

I passed almost all the pretests with flying colors.

I still haven’t taken math II and the language arts: writing tests yet…
I’m looking forward to saying “I got my G.E.D.” though.

Yay :)
