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.

Deary me.

I have dropped off of the radar so many times on this website, I need to buck up my ideas!

Anyway, I’ve had a hectic past 6 months but now I’m finally settled again so hopefully I’ll be around a bit more. Admittedly, I’ve said that an awful lot of times but third (or 100th) time lucky, right?

So, a quick catchup? Thailand was amazing! Honestly the best two months of my life, I can’t wait to go back once I finish university/have the money. I got back on results day, turns out I only got BBC in my A levels (oops) but got into Heriot-Watt University to study Chemistry, for which it’s currently 2nd in the league tables. I’m doing pretty well so far I think, got a few A+’s on my lab reports and stuff yay!

I packed up and moved to Edinburgh on the 1st of September and absolutely love it, it’s beautiful! I’ve settled really well into a group of friends and we all get on, so that’s good :D

Me and Ryan split up after three years, he got into King’s College London and I just decided I didn’t want to deal with only being able to see my boyfriend for 2 days a month for the next 5 years, so we’re just staying good friends now.

Also, I’m 19 now! Ah it’s so weird, I joined this site when I was only 12! In that time I’ve only done 267 things, and most of which aren’t actual achievements, but still!

That’s it pretty much I think, how has everyone else been?!


I haven’t been on here in so long! Desperately hoping that everyone else is still around and active, I miss this site!

I’ve decided that for 2012 I’m going to get back on here again and start working towards some of the goals I gave up on 5 years ago!

Catch Up!

Oh deary me. It’s been forever since I was on here, and I really miss it! I think I’ve grown up quite a bit since I last showed my face, so have a new picture so you can all put a face to the name :P

Anyway, the point of this post was to have a brief catch up with people on here so I’ll fill you in about what’s been going on with me for the past 6 months.

I started college last September, and have slaved away doing 5 AS levels ever since. I say slaved away, I got a disappointing C in Chemistry and an even worse D in History, which was surprising as I was getting straight A’s in all my mocks, in my Christmas exams so the hard work really started after that. I’ve had 4 exams in the past month, and I have 2 left on Monday 6th for English and French. I settled into college pretty well I think, and aside from the Christmas exams it’s all going okay :D

Remember my Christmas job? They hired me again at the end of February until March 28th, then extended my contract May 28th. So I finished a week ago, but during my exit interview my manager told me I work like ‘shit off a shovel’ and that I’m a ‘shining star’, and she also mentioned that they’re reviewing their finances and a few vacancies should pop up in a week or two and that they’ll be in touch, which is always promising. At first I was working 4 nights a week, but at the beginning of May it was too much with my exams, so I handed in my notice, but my manager offered me the same job but with 50% less hours, meaning I’d just work a Saturday, which was blooming perfect :D

Ooh! I also got pretty into nail art about 3 months ago, and have recently started selling hand painted false nails here on Ebay! Admittedly, I’ve only sold one pair so far but I’m hoping that it’ll kick off a little bit soon! :P

And that is pretty much it! How has everyone been? :D


I got my cartilage pierced a few days ago, and it’s suddenly swollen up and gone bright red. Oh the pain.

I painted my nails with a Union Jack last week!

Ooh I adore them, but it’s all started chipping so I’ve got to take it off :(


I have a day off of college due to feeling like I’m going to spew everywhere when I move, therefore I’m going to sit in bed with my laptop and update every single goal I’ve got on here! :)

I started college today!

It was really good actually, I’d been worrying for weeks but it wasn’t that bad :D

I made a few new friends in my tutor group, and there’s a few nice people in the classes I’m in where I don’t know anybody so I’m looking forward to going back :D

I made my own shorts!

Well, I cut up a pair of jeans and sewed them up, but still! :D

Me and Ryan


Sorry for filling up the post randomly goal, didn’t know where else to put them :/

Me and Chad

He’s one of the loveliest guys ever :)
