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.

Done a lot of this, and its nice not to have to worry about new clothes, etc. and just spend my money on enjoying myself with other people.

My next social event will be a BBQ with john and party in the park with agnes. Will be amazing. I can’t believe I’m having not one but two (albeit joint) celebrations for my day of birth.

Done a lot of this and its really the best remedy. Only last week I organised my first social thing with people from my course with a great turnout of twelve and only a few dissappointments. But completely worth it. Well happy with myself about this!



Problems with meeting people I'd share interests with:--

To go to club nights/events/exhibitions/music things such as cough cool, crystal nights &c. &c. &c. I need friends to go with who would be interested. All my friends can’t be bothered with this kind of thing/find it pretentious/ leave early/ act awkward. John is impatient and prefers to do more solipsistic activities that do not involve social interaction. Jahed is shy and unlikely to attempt to make new friends in a new environment. Selina would come if I persuaded her but when I’m with her I find it easy to go off by myself and she’s not good for making new friends, or less I feel like if we’re meeting up I should be spending my time with her. The only one who it works to go out with is Osama. Even with him, he generally knows someone everywhere, but ussually just looking for hot girls.

I have done a lot of this lately, at the expense of my academic work maybe. Anyway, went to so many of those post grad fun things, even though they are getting a lesser turnout and the fact that I didn’t last very long today. Going to Sean’s cocktail party tomorrow and might also try to get in a film before. Finally, been went to the film/fashion show thing. It wasn’t very good. But had drinks with Sam before/during/after and that was worthwhile.



Untitled

went to francophone society, went to soas film society and tomorrow will be going to this fashion/film show thing. moreover, going to aim to start attending ronojoy/lily’s party things. Got to swallow my pride and go, alone, possibly.



Untitled

Going out much more so thats good, definite improvement in my confidence. Only error is the social faux pas but nobody’s perfect.



Untitled

been out three times in the last week aiming for 4-5 outings a week but without drinking.



Untitled

I’ve realised in the last couple of days to be a bit more wise with the jokes side of things. like try not to be too offensive or put anyone done, even if they do that to you. finally, to use good jokes, teabags is funny but a bit odd. oh well.



Untitled

going to hannah’s party on sat, japan soc, mountain climbing, french soc and soas party. roll on good times.
