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.

May(some more)
1. I started summer classes. Not exactly fun, but I ended up with an A- in my Political Science class, and I’m done with it!
2. I went to my parent’s new house, which is a four hour drive from school. I didn’t get lost, which is quite a feat for me.

1. I drove in Atlanta. It was nerve racking, but I’m glad I did it. I’ve actually done it twice since then, and I’m not afraid anymore.
2. I went to visit my friend at Georgia Tech (hence the driving in Atlanta). I hadn’t seen her since Christmas and it was the first time I had seen another friend since graduation the previous year.
3. I bought a Slice
Now this normally wouldn’t be frugal, but I saved 50 dollars on it because I got it on ebay.
4. I sold movies I don’t watch to Movie Stop and ended up getting 4 new ones that I like more than all the others combined.


I haven’t had time to write anything up lately because of finals, but now that this semester is over, I thought it would be good idea to do it now. I hope I can remember everything

1. I bought a Wii! I’ve wanted one for about a year now, so I finally took the plunge. I ordered it on ebay and ended up getting it cheaper than if I got it anywhere else. I only have 2 games so far, but it is a lot of fun.
2. I actually got to wear my rain boots, which allowed me to walk around campus and a) not get my feet wet, or b)fall and break my ankle. I never enjoyed the rain, now I can, and even jump in puddles.
3. I went to St. Simons! The trip ended up being free because we stayed with the family of one of my friends. Her parents cooked for us, so we ended up not having to worry about food. While we were there I finished Redeeming Love, which is a wonderful Christian Fiction book. I have never read anything like that before, so I guess that could count for a fourth thing too.

1. I finished my first year in college- Grades aren’t up yet, but I think I will still have Hope, which was on my list of 101 thing in 1001 days. It will be very close, like a 3.0 exactly, but it doesn’t matter. I think I can pull it up this summer and in the fall though because my classes aren’t going to be that hard I don’t think.
