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.

Back in the Class!

I’m currently taking a full time schedule again in college! Sadly, only two of my classes deal with art (art history and design) but I’m glad to be back in it. Next year, I plan to take drawing and maybe my first photography class. So glad I made this decision to go back.

Signed Up!

Got accepted back into the world of college for this fall! Starting back slow but I will get my art degree in photograghy!

Working things out.

Currently seeing what I need to do to go back to college next year. Also need to be in good enough health to go back so I’m working with my doctor for this. They cut down my antibiotic doses and say I’m healing up well. If all goes well, I should be back in college by Fall 2013!


I already have an Associates Degree in General Business, but my passion is photography. I want to go back to school for it.
