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.

AS levels

Just started AS levels this year. I’m aiming to do as well as possible in these, so that I can afford to do slightly less well next year, and still get As overall, although I would like to do really well next year too, and will work to this end.

I really need As, as I want to go to Oxford to study Law, so without them, no chance!

For GCSEs, I got 11 A*s and 2 As, though, so I think that this is realistic

What I've read so far...

So far I have read…
‘Emma’, ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Sense and Sensibility’ – Jane Austen
‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ – Harper Lee
‘A Room with a View’ – E.M. Forster
‘Jane Eyre’ – Charlotte Bronte
‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ – Jules Verne
‘Little Women’ – Louisa May Alcott

Hmm, I think that’s it. Quite appalling really, that that’s all the classics I’ve ever read…

Reading the classics

I’m trying to read more classic novels, and so far, in the past couple of weeks, I’ve done ‘Emma’ (Jane Austen) and ‘A Room with a View’ (E.M. Forster). I really enjoyed both of them! Any suggestions for what to read next?
