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 Biola (read all 2 entries…)

Half done.
I got accepted and was about a month away from going there. Then the amount of debt I’d get in overwhelmed me and now I’m not going there :/

graduate high school early
In the process

Well I busted my but freshman year and over the summer, so now I just have this year and the summer to go. I had to be home schooled this year because public schools are lame, but I know life starts after high school- so I’m not sweating it.

draw more
Not too bad...

I’ve been just doodling whenever I find the time. Most of it is just some cool stuff I find online, but I have thrown in a couple things of my own. maybe I’ll put some pics up when it’s complete.

Funny thing about living in a completely different country. Uhmmmmmm. Well for one, EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT!!!!!! Who woulda thunk right?But there is an upside to this and a downside. On the downside summer vacation just ended since the season here is opposite to the seasons in the USA. On the upside though there are no child labor laws so I don’t even have to wait for the summer to finally get a job! So how about changing this goal to just getting a job? Then again I would need to change my vacation visa to a student visa for that to work out but one thing at a time right? Likethe australianssem to say say quite often No Worries! :D

become popular (read all 2 entries…)
Wow this is like my third epiphany today lol

I don’t really care for it anymore
Do I NEED to have 300 friends on facebook?
Do I NEED to have every weekend until the end of the world filled?
So why was this so important for me?
Well I’m done
I have found friends that care about me and vice versa
remember that to any of you looking for popularity
because i realized it’s not fun

Fall in real love: ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't live without each other love. (read all 2 entries…)
Yeah thanks but no thanks

I’m still pretty young
This shouldn’t be a goal of mine until later on in life where I am a bit more serious about relationships
It shuoldn’t even be a goal for that matter
It’ll happen when God wills it
So until then I’m gonna enjoy not having a bf
But no thanks :)
