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.

At last!

At the beginning of the summer, I had applied for this job working as a scribe in the emergency room. I knew they wouldn’t be hiring at least until school started back, but this weekend, I got an email about setting up a skype interview. So, Monday I had my interview, and I got the official offer today. I’m especially excited because I’ll also gain experience in the emergency department which will be great for getting into medical school. I am so incredibly excited and training starts July 28th. I can’t wait!

1.To Kill a Mockingbird
2.War and Peace
4.Cold Mountain
5.The Sojourner
6.Eleanor’s Story

We'll See...

I had a job interview yesterday with Texas Roadhouse which I was pretty stoked about. Unfortunately, I was told it would be a few weeks before I heard anything, if I heard anything. After that less than ideal news, I went to a few more places to do some more applying. At Applebee’s, I was just finishing my application when the manager walked up to me and asked if I could come in today for a formal interview. I said that I would love to and so we’ll see how that goes but I’ve got a good feeling about this one.

I’ve put out a lot of applications, and called to check on them. I have two restaurants to call on Monday and hopefully set up interviews with them. Things are slow around here right now, but hopefully something will come up soon. I’m not giving up yet!
