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.

so yes, i DID end up going. i t was the most wonderful time ever!



damn.

i am on the waiting list but this will not happen. at least not this year.



damn you prof hanlon

so i just finished my exam and prof hanlon pulls me aside and tells me that i am on the waiting list for the trip but i might not get to go. that is fine. THEN he procedes to tell me that if i DO go, he is taking 2-3 students after the trip to northern italy with his daughter, to look at the archives there and stay in a monastary. as i listen to him talking i am in awe of adventure but secretly CRYING because of my zero money. therefore i hate prof hanlon for bringing up these awesoem trips while i have no money. BLAST!



sad news

the trip is actually $4300. Prof Hanlon said it was a lot less. i am very disappointed. i will probably not be able to go now…... :( back to the vet for me all summer…..



IMPORTANT UPDATE

my mum just called and said i have now got the OK from both her and my dad for the trip. now i just need to figure out exact costs and dates. i have emailed prof hanlon. i am so incredibly excited. this has given me new motivaation to do well in school. AWESOME. but no abad. geez.

but seriously, i’m super excited. i really hope this pans out.



history trip

there is a history trip to cesky krumlov this summer for the entire month of june with my university. i really really really want to go. eastern europe has always fascinated me. The class is about Baroque culture and history in early modern europe. you live in the city, take classes in the castle and get to go to an opera. it is one of two remaining opera houses of its type left in the world. i would love to go. plus weekend excursions to prauge. i am in the process of convincing my parents to help me pay.
