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.

I have managed to “survive college”. I started in September and managed to make it to July without being kicked out by the management who hate me. Without quitting even though I was so tempted so many times.
I did it even though I hated it.
And I’m proud of myself.
Regardless of what grades I get, I managed to complete a year of something I hated and I did my best.
I couldn’t have done any more than I did.

Well done me. ♥


I found out today that it is actually only a three day week!
Tomorrow is my last day.

One week...

Only a four day week and then I can cross this goal off. If I return to my college to complete my A2 levels then I can create another goal called ‘Survive college v2.0’. But yes, soon it’ll all be over.
For a while.

Two weeks.

The it’s summer and it’ll be awesome.


Three weeks to go. Lord above.
I don’t know if that’s good or bad though.
This week I will be drawing my own interpretation of the soul. Yay!

13th of July.

Apparently that’s when we break up (we go back on the 18th of this month for four weeks which would mean we broke up on the 13th) though I’m not holding my breath or getting my hopes up because I know what my college is like with stuff like this.

Surviving after college....?

If I pass my exams I have to start thinking about university and then there’s the entry requirements and what if I don’t meet those with my A2 grades that’s so much pressure. And I’d have to leave home if I got in and move away from everything I know and love and understand and the concept is so scary to me. I don’t feel ready.
What if I fail? I’d have two weeks (ish) from results day until start of term and in that time I’d have to think of another solution that worked for me and then apply and get in and stuff.
What if I can’t do that?
I can’t get a job. My grades are average and I have no experience.
What am I going to do?


I didn’t realise until today how important he was.
I’ll be so, so sorry to see him go.
I’m pretty emotional and I feel like crying a bit.
Thanks, Dan. I hope your new class sucks compared to us. ♥♥♥

I said I wouldn't give up but...

The only reason I go to college is leaving.
It feels like a break up.


Once I’ve finished my AS this goal will drop down my list as it will be less important. After half term I have 4-6 weeks until the summer holidays.
