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.

- The Robots.

My teacher told sth about joining the orchestra the next semester. So probably I will be able to ‘tick’ this goal very soon. In a month or two.

in a year

If I stay in a French horn class and pass this year I’ll probably will join the school’s symphony orchestra in the second semester of year 2.

Long and winding road

This year I’ve passed the exams to music school, so maybe this goal is not a lost cause? But it’ll take really long to find it out :)

This is my dream, however..

..probably it will never become true, because I failed the exams to the music school (if you don’t go to music school there’s no chance to play in an orchestra..). Still can’t get over this, because I’d had 22/25 from the hearing exam and failed the practical one, where they were asking me questions like: why I want to go to music school in that age (aah right I’m 18, I’m sooo old that I need to retire..) and why I can’t read notes (and what is the music school for, huh?) But anyway this is my dream, so I’ve put it to my list.
