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.

go to wimbledon

turned up to queue at 8am, didn’t get in for another 9 hours but saw some pretty big players lose and got a bit drunk on Murray Mount. Worth it.

not check facebook so often

Never compare someone’s highlights to your blooper reel, right?

Wear a (uk) size 12 pair of jeans
As a tall size 16 now

This is going to take ALOT of work. Gym classes and swapping packets of biscuits for salad will hopefully get the zip going in the right direction..

Pass my probation period at work with flying colours
First graduate job

in London have given me a six-month probation period to see if I ‘fit in with the company’, just need to impress them enough to get a permanent contract!

do a triathlon

So seeing as my dad could complete a triathlon in his 50th year, his 22yo daughter should be able to do the same.

45min spin class was completed today. IT STARTS.

visit a new city
Went to the grand old city of AMSTERDAM

for 5 days over Easter with 10 people, some my bestfriends some I knew less well – but I had an AMAZING time, soaked up some culture got a few funny anecdotes and yeah it was pretty much awesome!!

Do something for Valentine’s Day besides wallowing in self-pity.

Had an AWESOME time on valentine’s day, had a free lunch bought by a friend which was amazing then bought some cakes and spontaneously decided to go speed dating!

Lose 10 pounds (read all 3 entries…)

Started uni, had no time to eat so survived on about 2 meals a day and was rushing around trying to get everything done.
Having no money also stopped me eating anything I could afford to miss!

Get used to having NO sugar in my cups of tea (read all 3 entries…)
An easy way

is to just not buy sugar!! result!
Have grown quite used to it now and if I ever have to urge for some sugar so of my floormates have sweetener instead, so I think I can call this done!

be either working, working out or going out this holiday (read all 3 entries…)

back at uni, so no more holiday!!
Made up for the poor effort in the beginning of the holiday so pretty darn pleased actually!

Get used to having NO sugar in my cups of tea (read all 3 entries…)
Doing really well with this

am getting used to the taste, just need to make a conscious decision to put down the sugar bowl when I make a cup.
If I can actually do this I will have worked down from 2 and 1/2 spoonfuls of sugar to NO sugar in my tea!!

Not going so well

have been to the gym once, have not done nearly enough work plus all my friends are going back to their unis so I have a week left on my own.
I could start going to the gym and revising..

get a haircut (read all 2 entries…)
Will have to

go about booking this asap, just need a v.good trim so that it stops looking so straggly and also to cut my fringe which can now touch my chin!
Also need to find some way of sorting out the streak of blue that I had as it is now a strange grey/green colour. I’ll probably just end up getting it bleached again to white blonde!!

Day 1

And my first sugarless cup of tea!! Tastes ok, bit strong but I’m sure that given time I’ll get used to it. I just need to remember that I am trying to do this everytime I make a cup of tea!

become a force of nature (read all 5 entries…)
For certain things

I have gotten better at this; interacting with people and doing things I’m scared of etc. but in other ways i have not yet defeated my amazing powers of procrastination! So still a little bit of work to be done..

have a great day
The best one I have had in a while

A friend from a while back phoned me out of the blue and asked if I wanted to do something today – we ended up going on an impromptu roadtrip to a local seaside town, had food did a bit of shopping and had a general catch up and some v.funny moments!
So I think I can consider this done!!

Fix my teeth

had several different forms of brace for about 5 years, got a retainer, wore that for about a year and then forgot it and left it at home when I moved cities for uni.
My teeth have now moved so I’m wearing them every night to get them back to where they started, which is soooo painful I can’t even tell you!
moral of the story is; ALWAYS remember to pack your retainer!
