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.

Day 3 - 20th through 24th of September.

I could not update this during the week because of the endless amount of work I had to do. With that in mind, lets start.

~Falling asleep on Friday after the end of the week.
~Realizing that I’ve changed over the year.
~Accepting that there will be failure in life
~Discovering this new world of Fantasy that I was unaware of

So I finished the majority of my work. I think I might be able to sleep at 10:30 today!

Day 2 - 19th of September, 2011

Knowing that a girl feels the same way for me as I feel for her. Yet, never saying one word about it.

Memories of the Past - 19th of September, 2011

Hypocrisy.

I see kids, 6-14, that are devious, but once I recall my childhood so was I. Yet, I was worse than fighting with my parents, or failing in school. I, though not by myself, hurt a kid younger than me in my childhood. Sure I didn’t bully him like the other kids would do, but I still did it to some degree! We drove him away from our neighborhood, and I feel bad about this. There’s no excuse for what I’ve done, but I feel the need to fix this. How? I’m not entirely sure, but I have to find away.

I’m sorry.

I read it takes 21 days to form a new habit.

Challenge accepted.

Sadly, I have failed.

I still have more work, and I highly doubt I will be done by the time midnight comes.

I hope I learn from this.



Get golden honor roll at school
18th of September, 2011.

To get silver honor roll at my school you have to obtain a minimum of a B in every class. Last year I obtained silver honor roll three times, except first quarter since I was unaware of this and did not give my greatest effort.

This year I will aim higher and try for golden honor roll. This is a challenge for me since I only have one academic course, three honor courses, and two advanced placement courses. The rest of my classes are just electives.

At the moment I have:
A-
A+
C
A+
B
A-

Only seven days of school have passed so I don’t fear too much about my low grades.

One thing… hmm.

The day I got to see my father again after many years.
