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 have an address here in Morocco..

So i guess this means I am living in Morocco.

We’re not yet totally settled in, but we do have:

- running water
- electricity
- inet courtesy of a USB stick modem
- a new double bed with frame
- a table and chairs
- an armoire
- some towels
- a new fridge
- a new cook top/stove top

And on Monday, I find out what my work schedule is going to be like.

Today, we begin our search for an apartment.

I’ve been in-country for exactly three weeks now, living out of a suitcase or back pack the whole time.

I’m so excited to finally be in my post city and to be able to begin looking for an apartment. I cannot wait to be settled in and start living as normal a life as possible!

This ***IS*** going to happen!

Yesterday, I received confirmation that a Fulbright ETA award was being held for me.

I applied to teach English in Poland, but due to some funding cuts and my persistence, I will now be moving to Morocco in September and will spend 10 months teaching English in one of their universities.

I might be a little closer to achieving this goal!

I passed my first round of Fulbright cuts, and now only one more round separates me and living in Poland.

I will hear back in the next four months or so!

Plan A part one and two..

We submitted our Fulbright applications last week. We have set down the groundwork for us to move to either Poland or Moldova a little less than one year from now.
