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.

I get to wait until 2 days before graduation if I get my appeal or not. >_< WELL MAY 16 is just around the corner, right? I think not.



well...

Yesterday I talked to my counselor and the attendance office lady and Im going to make an appointment with my dean to discuss and prepare for an appeal. They made it sound like an absolute guarantee I’ll get an appeal IF I dont miss another single day of school… there goes my brothers birthday. And the family was supposed to do something special, but my BF wont count me out, so now they might have to reschedule.. they all marked off for work and are gonna be PISSED. He said to ask anyway if I can take the day off but I think they’re giving me a break as it is. Ugh.



I give up.

Well I already F.A.’d and it’s not even my fucking fault. I missed like 6 too many days, well sorry my brother died. Jeese. This school is rediculous. I am supposed to recieve my magna cum laude diploma on May 18th, but it doesn’t seem like that is going to happen. Shit. I made an appointment with my counselor to find out my options. An appeal is probably out of the question since I dont live with my parents and they have to be present for one. (I think. AND Im taking my brother’s birthday off on the 27th, NO MATTER WHAT.) And my BF was in the hospital last week so I missed 2 more days. AND i got sick but have no insurance & cant see a doctor.. life sucks. Sorry for whining, it makes me feel better tho :)
Let’s just hope for summer school, I ONLY NEED A HALF CREDIT FOR ENGLISH!!! There’s no way Im doing another unnecessary full time semester… we’ll see.
