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.

visit my grandparents more often
Does this count?

Ive been really busy which isnt much of an excuse but they do live around 40 minutes away so it isnt like i can pop down the road to see them. But I did call my gran & grandad .. and my Nana :) It was so cute to hear how excited they were when i said ’’Hi, its maddie’’. I do love them so. Picture of my Nana Pépi (my spanish grandparent, red hair) and two of my cousins Bex (afro) & Lucas (blondie). Love ‘em all!

Take more photos
24 photos for art

so technically this wasnt on my own accord these photos were required for coursework but i reckon if i get into the habit theni’ll start taking them without being asked. I took 24 photos of natural structures, to do this I went for a walk in South Weald country park, now i dont hate nature or anything and I dont hate animals but damn was it a long walk with a whole loada flies and nettles. I got some amazing pictures though which I’m really proud of, my art teacher said he loved them and gave me tips on how to improve on a couple of the photos (stuff like composition, light ect.) I’ve uploaded my absolute favourite, take a look!

Achieve good results in my GCSEs
Business Studies & Critical Thinking

When i got my 30% results back for the two subjects mentioned in the title i was a bit upset I got D’s for both of them, today I found that I was one mark off a C in business and didnt get the lowest in the class as I thought and that in my Critical Thinking most people in our class got D, E and U’s.
Now for the good news , for 30% of my maths GCSE I got a C ! I have gone from U’s, E’s and D’s always, from year 7 for the first time I did well in a maths exam … C… can you believe it cause I cant! I must achieve a C or B in my next exam to get pass my Maths GCSE…Just got to keep it up now… wish me luck!
