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.

Finally finished

Took me 4 months to learn from 0 – to license. I am absolutely fed up with this process, if honestly speaking, but so very relieved now :3


Have to come in tomorrow again.


Tomorrow (more like later today) I have the driving exam. I am terrified and just hoping that I don’t screw up. I need to do this no questions asked.

Signed up

It is set that I have the exam on 29th at 12:15. I am all jittery with excitement and really hope that I can get it done then. After all, it is the last thing that is keeping me in Latvia, before I move to England :3

So happy

Talked to my instructor today. He promised that I will be done with my lessons till November and hopefully can get the exam over around that same time too. So close! :3


I passed the theory exam today. That means that only the driving is left. I hope that I still get to do it in November


My driving instructor said today that I should be able to get my license before new year. Still so long…


I am in a process of getting a drivers license. Next Wednesday I already have the national exam in theory. Just hoping not to screw up :)
