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.

Second Lesson

My next class is in like 30 minutes and I am close to chickening out… I am just so freaking out by driving. I can drive, it just scares me to have that much power in my hands. I think i am still have scars from my motorcycle accident and it just freaks me out to drive. I am always afraid there is a little kid I don’t see running or another driver that isn’t paying attention. I don’t want to back down

6. Watching Amanda perform on stage and knowing that me and my friends will be up there next year making fools of ourselves.
5. Teachers telling me that they’ll miss me and hope to see me next year so long as I am not sitting in their classrooms

try sushi

I eat some pretty strange things, growing up in the woods and all. It is not the seaweed or the uncooked fish, for some reason, the rice made me feel ill. YUCK!
