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.

BT applying -in person-

I applied online for many jobs but turned in my application for work at BT, which felt so rewarding in soo many ways. I felt so happy, ectatic and ccompished because I had took initiative to make it all happen. I was the one who took the bus that drove me to BT and I was the one who filled out the application and I was the one who handed the application to one of the workers at BT. It was an out-of-body experience that sent goosebumps down my spine. It was an accomplishment that had to be done in person and NOT through the internet to actually get the feel of the excitement of being so close to getting a job. I turned it in 2 days ago. I will give them a call early tomorrow when they open so that the manager is there and will ask about my application so that they’ll know Im interested in getting the job. Wish me luck! :)

Close..very close!!!

I applied online 4 summer jobs in my town wherever I could. I feel victorious and nothing can bring me down. I feel like I have a plan and the jobs I was applying for had messaged me back saying that I would get a reply soon. So I am very Hopeful and looking foward to the future with me obtaining a job during the summer. Just have to await the call. Yay! Sooo excited! :D
