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.

How to pursue...?

Would still love to do this.

I don’t know where to look for work!

I have quite a large repertoire of songs that I can play off the top of my head, they’re all pretty mellow and nice-sounding.

I’d like to improve my technique over the summer, also.

pass my a levels (read all 3 entries…)
I did this, with flying colours.

2 years ago, I worked my arse off.

A month before the exams started, I began spending every single day revising in the library from 8:30am until 6pm, or 8pm on Wednesdays.

I completely exhausted myself, felt physically ill and mentally deranged haha!

But I sat those exams and I got an A grade in every single subject, even though I was predicted far lower for some of them.

My final grades were:

Art – A
History – A
Psychology – A

There is no cheating this system. Only hard work will get you through it, and it was worth it.

Applying to university was a doddle because with my 3 As and my Art Foundation to support it, I have nearly 650 UCAS points, which is double the amount required for pretty much any course in the UK.

I applied for Multimedia BSc and got an unconditional offer pretty much 2 weeks after my application, and a few days after my interview.

Learn Japanese
Career goal...

This has become more of a career-related goal for me than anything else.

It would be useful to be able to communicate in Japanese, due to the video games industry. A lot of studios that I am very fond of are based in JP, and it would be useful to be able to communicate with them!

When I start at uni in September, I hope to enrol in a language class to build on my limited knowledge of the language and gain more confidence at speaking it.
