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 bus is actually a great place to study when it’s not noisy! One hour in the morning, one hour in the evening on the way home.Two hours a day means 10 extra hours per week.And it really seems to make the journey go faster. Try it!



pass chemistry (read all 3 entries…)

Failed my first chemistry exam, but I didn’t do any work for it. I’ve started to do some studying and it’s getting a little easier. Hopefully I can pass it in the summer. If not I’ll have to repeat :(

Believe in myself (read all 4 entries…)

Something knocked my confidence last August and it’s only slowly coming back now.It’s harder than I ever thought. Today I believed in myself and it paid off, I could do what I wanted to do. I can do this…we all can!



Fall in love (read all 10 entries…)

I think my problem is that I fall in love toooo easily…or else it’s not love. But this time it could be serious, hopefully :)



lose weight (read all 2 entries…)
Untitled

I have lost some weight, but I wasn’t trying to :) I guess it’s just from eating less junk at college and walking more to get my train. Should be fairly easy to maintain I hope :D



stop biting my nails
Untitled

I got gel nails done almost 2 weeks ago and took them off yesterday to find that my nails were really long and totally different looking to any way they’ve ever been before! And I keep forgetting that the gel nails arent on and I havent bitten them at all. This could be the end of it all….finally!!



visit america (read all 2 entries…)
Untitled

Next year I’m hoping to do a J1 visa so I can work in America for the summer.I think it will be a great way to see some of the country and meet new people.Plus, the weather is bound to be much better than your average Irish summer! Hopefully I get there soon :)



lose weight (read all 2 entries…)
Untitled

I’ve felt fat since the age of about 6 or 7.I really need to do something about this goal! But where to start? Eating less I suppose…



clean my room (read all 3 entries…)
Untitled

Ok, tomorrow is the day, only because it’s too late to start today. I don’t mean just a quick tidy up I mean a deep clean. I want to throw out so much stuff. Since I’m starting college soon this will be like my fresh start. It’s such a hard goal.



stop picking my skin
Untitled

I have to stop this! I have my debs(like an American prom) in 2 weeks and I need to heal up the scabs on my face,arms and shoulders. I’ve been doing fairly well recently I just hope I can keep it up. I’m not gonna stop after my debs either, this has been on my list for way too long! I need more space to do other stuff :) Good luck everyone.



go to taize
Untitled

My favourite place in the world…so far anyway :) I hope to be back soon :)



turn 18
Untitled

I’ll be 18 in December.Where have the years gone??? I’m kinda nervous about being 18.I can do whatever I want.That’s alot of responsibility…but then again it will be great not having to get the parents to sign everything for me :) Next milestone after that is 21…now that will be scary!!!



learn to swim
Untitled

I did swimming lessons and my dad tried to teach me so many times but I’m just too nervous.I think as I’m getting older it could be easier.Since I live on an island it’s essential :O



get a job (read all 4 entries…)
Untitled

I just finished school in June and I’ve sat at home all summer doing nothing. I really should have looked for a job….just think of all the money I could have made over the summer. I could’ve met some new people. Now that I’m going to college I really should look for a part time job. It’s getting annoying having to rely on my parents for everything. I think I’ll start tomorrow.
