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.

stop being jealous
Jealousy

I’m always jealous of someone, whether it’s because they spend more time with their boyfriend, or they get more attention from the group we’re hanging out with, or they’re generally funnier and more creative than I am. I’m thinking it should stop. :[



get a job (read all 2 entries…)
Work!

I just got a job at Staples! I start on Thursday, so I’m pretty excited. I’m going to start as a cashier, and then eventually I’ll be working in the Copy Center. Since gas prices are going up, it’ll be nice to make my own money: now I can pay when I go out places, and my parents won’t get so bent out of shape about the gas! It should be fun, unless I end up not having time for anything.



Pass my AP French Exam
J'adore le francais

Even though there’s no AP French class this year, I still have all the books to take the exam anyway. So next April, I’ll get to test three years of taught French and two years of independently learned French! Wish me luck!
