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 a full scholarship
totally a good idea

be interesting. thats how i got mine. i didn’t have the BEST grades in my high school (though they were good) and my test scores were high, but i knew a few people who scored higher than me. i won my scholarship because i wrote a kick-ass essay on a topic that no one had thought of. and in my interview i didn’t hide my quirkyness, i just was like ok this is me and im weird. and they were like ok this is our school and you can go here for free. lol

pierce my nose
totally cute

i did this with my friend sierrah right before i moved away to college. i was afraid it was gonna hurt, but it didn’t. and i think its really cute on me. and it makes me feel so badass.

Read Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince

i started college right as it came out and had so much other reading to do… but thanks to hurricane rita (dirty hoe) i had plenty of time to read the whole thing this weekend by flashlight… i don’t want to ruin it for you, but the end is kind of depressing… but its just because jk rowling wants to make sure everyone reads the 7th one…
