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.

graduate high school

sooo, i gave up a while ago and said that I would finish through correspondant Independant books. Which I’m still planning on, but havent actually moved toward actually doing it. My old highschool is less than a 5 minute drive away, but I guess id rather drive the 25 minutes to the school board to ask for my transcripts. and thats my only good reason for holding back. Not a good one huh. The rest is easy, and the money that im short of for the next 3 months. So my goal is to start by March! if i cant sooner.

figure out what i want to do with my life
My Life

This is a hard one. lol
There will always be obstacles in your way preventing you from doing something. Mine is actually figuring it out.

So far, my biggest passion is photos. But I’m not so sure that’s so realistic anytime soon. My obstacles include money, mostly. and time. I don’t have the money and the time to get into it right now. Also I may add that I am short 5 courses to get my highschool diploma which i have to add to my list now! lol So there are other things i have to get done, to move on.

find the love of my life
<3 of my Life

Me and my boyfriend have been together for over 4 years now, we’ve lived together for about a year and a half (without counting me crashing in his parents basement for another year and a half lol). We’re very compfortable with eachother and get along most of the time. Like friends.
I do love him and care about him, but he’s not the love of my life. I could be happier and I beleive I should still have butterflies in another 5 years, but I don’t. and I’m just going to leave it at that.
