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.

get better grades in school
How to get better grades:)

My grades used to be really bad, in one exam i even got an f:s and i noticed why, it’s because i wasn’t focused enough, and i used the wrong techniques. When my retake for my physics exam which i got my f in came around I had to be strict with myself, Physics isn’t my subject, but i wasn’t gunna let that put me off. I tried loads of different ways to help me revise such as

sam learning
exam papers (practice ones)
repeating what i just revised to get it stuck in my head
Bite size
and writing stuff out from the text book.

For me exam papers, sam learning, and Writing info out of text books really helped me. and my final grade was a B. and i was soooo amazed:)

My biggest tips would be:
Never give up, even when people say you should, prove to yourself you can do it.

Don’t let friends or boyfriends distract you. you have to be strict with yourself, you want this good grade, you can’t blow off studying to go meet your friends cause they want you to come out. after your exam you can go out as much as you want:)

Don’t get put off. even if it isn’t your subject and the highest you can get is a c, well hey, it’s a pass isn’t it?:) i’m sure you can get into whatever you want to do still:)

I hope this helped.

tell my parents about my boyfriend
How can i do this??

I am 14 years old (nearly 15)and my boyfriend is 16 (nearly 17). I met my boyfriend through friends about 2 years ago, and we just clicked straight away, and we began dating about 6 months after that. The only problem is..he lives VERY far away, around 2 hours away, and my mum doesn’t even know he exists:S I really wanna tell her about him and everytime i go to do it, I like freeze, the words just don’t come out of my mouth. and I feel really sick and nervous to tell her. I don’t think she’d be angry cause she met my dad the same age as i am now,but i think she would be rather angry cause he lives so far away.. but i don’t really talk boys with her AT ALL. Mainly because I know she’ll tease me over it and then tell my dad and my brother who will then tease me over it, i spose being teased isn’t all that bad tbh, but i just dunno what to do:S HELP ME!


I want to:
