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.

Next week...

Bar exam is July 26/27. So Tues/Wed next week. I have been doing nothing but studying for the last several days – frankly, for the last several weeks. I’m tired and headachy and feel like launching all of my BarBri materials out the window. But it’ll be over. Then I will just have to wait until October for my results. Agggh.

It's a BarBri life

I gotta do what I gotta do but dangit this process is annoying.


I had to take the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam several weeks ago, which is the ethics exam that people have to take in order to become a lawyer; it’s done in (all 50?) states and it’s something that’s required in addition to the bar exam. (note: If you think you’re gonna go to law school, just know… it’s not just school -> the bar. Oh no. That’d be too easy. It’s school -> MPRE -> bar review class -> THEN bar exam. And that doesn’t even count the application you have to fill out for character & fitness, which is a freaking project in and of itself… bein’ a lawyer don’t come cheap).
Anyways. I passed the MPRE!! VERY excited about it. I left the exam center thinking I’d need to re-take it in August ‘cuz I for sure failed… but nope! I actually passed with flying colors. Extremely happy. One step closer to bein’ a lawyer!!!

Step #2

The next step is to pay a gajillion dollars to the state bar association so they can peruse my old speeding tickets and verify I’m not a felon. Oh, and write down every single place I’ve lived since I was 18!! That’s 10 years, folks, including all of the places I lived during college (don’t even get me started…) And everywhere I worked, too. Including Radio Shack. For a month.

Q: Why do they require us to disclose speeding tickets as far back as 7 years ago when the state only keeps the records out 5 years?
A: Because they want my head to explode.

Once I finish this process, then I just get to sit back and wait til graduation… after which I start: Bar Prep.

They sure don’t let us out easy.

Step #1

I just completed step for this goal: pay a gajillion dollars to BarBri and put my fate in their hands.
