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.

God, I have re-booked my test for…. 14th Aug!!! THAT IS SO FAR AWAY!!! It’s ok I spose, cos I can keep precticing, and know everything, and then make sure I pass and don’t have to re-book AGAIN! sigh So yeah, I have my theory test coming up.

Slight glitch...

OK, so it’s the day of my test, but I am not taking it. I have done all my revision and stuff, but I have lost one half of my licence, so I can’t take it!!! I’ll have to get a new licence and re-book is all, I don’t really mind that much. My mum was so stressed though, and I was like why? It’s not a v big deal. Meh. I wanted to go shopping afterwards, but now we can’t cos we’re not going anywhere with shops because I’m not taking my theory test. I so need new clothes though!

I am SO saving up over the summer though to buy myself a car. If my parents are so mean that they won’t buy me a car then I don’t want them to pay half or whatever, I wanna do it all myself :)

Theory is booked

I finally booked my theory test (took long enough!!). It’s on saturday 7th of June. Agh! I am still failing all my practices, but I’ll practice loads and get better, so hopefully I won’t fail and look like an idiot. :)

Theory Test

I am going to book my theory test soon, and then just learn all the stuff for it quickly :D


Yesterday’s driving lesson was really good, compared to last week’s. Last week I made loads of mistakes and I was generally nervous, but yesterday I was more relaxed and I didn’t have to be told when to change gears each time! Woo! I hadn’t practiced, so that was surprising! I hate driving my dad’s car cos I stall it so much! Bloody diesels (+ my lack of skills).


I started learning my theory yesterday- I really want to learn it all quickly and get it done! A lot of it seems like common sense (‘what do you do if your mobile phone rings when you are driving?’), it’s the learning of the road signs I don’t think I’ll be too good on.
But hooray for driving!

My first lesson!

I had my first lesson today! Woo! My first time driving on the roads :) I did a hill start and traffic lights :) My steering was really bad compared to when I have driven off the roads! It was really good though, and it meant I got home from school 2 hours early :D


I have my first lesson booked for weds!! :D :D :D
