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.

children's sports coach?

I applied for a job I felt I had no chance of getting, seeing as I was so fed up with not finding anything. A few weeks later ended up with a job interview and an offer to come and see what the company did. I was pretty shocked. So last Saturday I went along to have a look and am going both this Friday and Saturday to have another look :P I’m still not really sure about this job, trying to be open-minded about it, but I’m not particularly enthused about sports. Plus the fact I don’t have a driver’s license may be a nuisance.


Applied for a job as a “Food and Beverage Attendant”, as opposed to a waitress… It’s really close to where I am, would pretty much just have to jump on the bus, very good for me considering I don’t drive! :P

Those sucky phone calls...

Got one of those this morning. As it turns out, someone with far more experience has changed their days over to Wednesdays and Thursday-Wednesdays being the only day I could work. So I’m being “kept on file.” Disappointing, but I’ll just keep looking I guess.

Not too sure..

I had my first day last Wednesday, working at an autism centre. It was eye-opening, but I’m not really sure that it’s for me, I kept forgetting things. But I have to remind myself, that it was only my first day, so I shouldn’t be so hard on myself. I just like to know what I’m doing.


*Went to see Centrelink (who have, in fact, completely screwed me over and I’d like to see them explain just how I’m supposed to live on such a ridiculously low amount)
*Applied for two casual jobs (crosses fingers)
*Halfway through applying for and still searching for scholarships

Butterfly has gotten 8 cheers on this goal.
