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 changed the name of this goal to break it down...

This is my third and my final attempt at finishing my second year…final because I wont go back…final because if after the third time I can’t finish it I’ll move on to something better…final because I just finished my first semester. Yes that’s right 12 weeks to go and I’m going to knock it out of the park, score a hat trick, and score a touchdown. I think that’s enough sports metaphors, because the thing about metaphors is they are airy fairy, this is concrete. This is real !

It's funny

I was so excited when I reached the halfway point that all I could think about was just finishing…but i got ill and depressed and hated life to the point where i couldn’t do my second year exams. So this year clean slate I will do this and I will enjoy this even though I am disappointed I wont be graduating with my friends I have a second chance and I’m going to make the most of it.

Love and Peace Mia x

It's Official...

I am half way through my degree :)

Didn't realise I was this lazy...

or is it my poor degree choice …I mean I hate essay writing and what do I do, I pick a Humanities subject.. not one but TWO…I have an essay due on monday I took two days off work to do it and I’ve completely wasted one of them today by doing jack all…but I need to stop bitching and get on with it.

I’ve finish my first year (barely)and I’m half way though my second there are people out there who would kill to be in my position, with the opportunities I have.

I need to stop putting things off and do them and get them out the way. That way I can enjoy life instead of constantly thinking about being behind or assignments.


Not the best results possible but...

there is a light at the end of the tunnel, I got in to the second year. So maybe I didn’t get go to miami university for my second year. Iäm just thankful I got into the second year…opening my results my heart stop for a second and when I saw them I just didn’t care. I’ve got a fresh start to turn this around and get the first I know I can achieve and I’m going to do it.

until september…


finally finished my first year exams lets hope i make it to second year…which means MIAMI BABY !!! :)

Who would of THUNK it ...

that I would be able to wake up at 6 in the morning and work solidly 4pm with the exception of breakfast and lunch breaks at 8 and 12. Go me :) and I’m actually enjoying it…i understand why I picked my degree political theory is not really all that bad, just finshed covering marxism, feminisim and multicultralism now I have 5 more -ism to go let hope i pick up the pace. Normally I much quicker then this but its all a bit interesting so I’ve been taking my time…bad luck that I have an exam tomorrow. Now I want to go back and do it again…my new new years resolution is now no more regrets :)

over and out.

Wednesday today...

I had my exam yesterday and for once I wasn’t paniced…I kept waiting but it never set in…maybe because I finally got some revision done. Out of the 15 possible topics I revised 8, and out of those 8, 6 came up. Never thought probability would come in handy in history :)

Anyway I’ve finished history and I’ve got my last politics exam coming up on Friday…political theory! :(


I don’t know what it is. I want finish my degree but the way I’m going I won’t even get into my second year. The actions I do don’t support my intentions. Everyone tells me carry on, it’s ONLY two more years. A degree has basically become a prerequisite to working life. I loved learning about history and I was so interested in politics so it seemed like the pefect choice (even though my family was hell-bent on me studying medicine). Now i’m having doubts, which doen’t help my situation. The effort I now put in is like 50/50 and I no longer feel inspired.It’s always and effort to push myself to do things I don’t want to do, and when I finally do do it, it’s to little too late. Unfortunatly this is the category my degree has fallen into. My health has gone downhill of late because of the stress of it all, I’ve got writers block on my novel and I’m no longer going out to see my friends because I feel like I should be at home revising. I have a week of exams left if I don’t pull it out of the bag now I may never graduate.

Sad times

HIstory & Politics BA

It’s funny I’ve never had problems with education. I was always one of those people in your class that never did any work but still would get great grades. Which in a way disappoints me now that I’m older and wiser because I now know that had I put a little bit of effort in maybe those great grades would be amazing grades.

Funny thing is now I’m in uni, you have to put work in. Not a little, a lot and I guess I’m just not used to it. I’m a lazy person by nature (maybe I should put that on my list of things to change). I feel it’s a real struggle to push myself to do it, but I know in the end I’ll regret it if I don’t.

The ironic thing is I’m procrastinating on here while I should be revising for my exam on that’s on Tuesday.

Wish me Luck :)

Mia has gotten 9 cheers on this goal.
