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.

This summer

I’m going to go to Korea (hopefully), Taiwan and Japan. :) I had originally planned to go to Taiwan for a year but G’s sister is getting married at the end of October now so I have to come home before that, or miss it but I really don’t want to, or find enough money to buy another set of tickets. But I think it’s the first option since tickets are at least $1000 each way from Toronto to Taiwan. It’s probably the best time I’ll have in a long time to travel since I’ll have just graduated from University (OMG), so before I start trying to get into some sort of film/wardrobe union I’m going to enjoy life and experience something new!

Hey, if anyone has any info on working in Taiwan (maybe teaching English or something) I’d love to talk to you :)



Plans

Going to Vegas on the 26th for my best friend’s 21st (and her Mom’s 50th!)...this trip has been planned for a very long time (at least 10 years!) so it should be lots of fun. :)

And next summer when I finish school…what a scary thought…I’m planning to go to Taiwan for at least a month, Korea to visit my friend and hopefully Japan. My Dad gave me some “fatherly advice” to go and stay with my family in Taiwan for a year, saying it won’t harm my career at all etc etc, which I am really thinking about. I could always teach English or best case scenario do something in fashion/costume.



Want to go back!

I can’t stop thinking about Taiwan and how much I loved it there. Always something to do, so much to look at, and half of my family is there and I’d really like to get to know them better. Seriously thinking about either taking a year off and going to teach English or something, or maybe after I’m finished my degree hopefully getting a job there in fashion/costume or even just going to teach English anyway. Hmm.



I want to

go on a trip at least once a year.

This year I’m going to Alberta for a week with my boyfriend to visit some friends I made in Kenya, and to Arizona (and probably into Mexico for a couple days, we’re staying like 15 minutes from the border) for a leadership/facilitation training trip.
