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.

The examination results slip reached my mailbox today. The grades I received for the two modules last term are:

AMP module – A
PI module – B

I’m happy about the A, but am less than happy about the B grade. I feel that I’ve been marked unjustly, as the lecturer for that module and I didn’t exactly click, but there’s not much I can do about it. Maybe it’s the perfectionistic side of me ingraining these thoughts. I ought to think positively, not beat myself up, and be happy with the not-too-bad results.

Done my best, wish for the best

Concentration and motivation levels soared and I was much more well prepared for the second examination paper. I feel fairly confident for both papers but fingers are still crossed until the results are released in a few weeks time.

Just one more term to go and I’ll be graduating. But for now, I shall lavish in the short holiday break.

Marking this as done!

Procrastinating perfectionist

Procrastination bit hard this time round and it resorted to squeezing in a last minute study binge just hours before the examination today. The paper wasn’t too bad, but I was cutting it close.

The next (and final) paper for the term is on Friday and preparations are under way. It’s (high) time to bite the procrastination bullet and gear it up a notch.
