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.

Pass Algebra 2
failing

so, right now i have a 58% F. passing at my school is a 70%...aka i gotta get it up, fast.
a very long story short is that i didn’t do 4 worksheets, and i’m just disappointed with myself because he doesnt check if we did all the work correctly, he only counts if we tried. and well i didn’t try, only because hes the shittest teacher ive ever had and doesn’t teach me what to do on the worksheets.
sooo, i was going to make up the worksheets before tomorrow but i dont even know how to make up stuff. i’m just in a big mess. volleyball ends tuesday, so at least ill have time to do the rest of the work.

if i dont pass, at least i know i have next semester to get a better teacher, which sounds great, but idk what a waste not to pass this semester you know?



be a better driver (read all 2 entries…)
everyday

so, ever since i got my car on my birthday a month ago i’ve been driving just about everyday. i’m working on everything so in december, when i get my license, driving won’t be so scary. i’ve had my permit for 8 months now, and i have had made huge improvements and it’s so much easier only driving my car, because driving 3 totally different cars really screwed me up. so yeah, my brother and i have started to just drive around my neighborhood and work on curves and turning out onto streets, cuz thats my weakness.



learn to ollie
amazing

i freakin did it!
it’s off and on but i can do it!
now, i just have to perfect it



Pass French class
yay

C+



get my braces off
yay!

feels great!! looks great!!
the only thing is that I have a retainer glued to the back of my bottom teeth until something like “my wisdom teeth come in” so my teeth don’t get screwed up. I hope they hurry up and come! But I think it’s just annoying me for now. But hey, I can deal with it, at least now when I eat half my meal doesn’t get stuck!



have a great summer
get out!

every summer i say i’m going to hang with my friends a lot and i end up doing the same thing.
wake up late, stay on the computer/watch tv till the early morning REPEAT, go to the pool a few times, and do volleyball all august and a camp in july

this summer i have new friends and new things i wanna do so i need to call up everyone! i hate having people at my house since it feel like there is nothing to do, but if that’s the only thing we can do then so be it.

i just want to have some REAL fun this summer.
i don’t want to go back to school and tell everyone i sent the whole summer in my bed.



stretch my right lobe
only because i can't

my dad already flipped about my left side.
i told my parents i would not stretch anything else till i was 18.
i finally got my 8g red earskin in, felt awesome.
then i didn’t have my cover up earring on and my mom saw it. she didnt flip but she was like, you know dad will flip.

so i just made the right choice and said i can wait 2 fucking years to stretch my ear up.
it’s not worth it if i have to HIDE my ear for 2 years. so fuck it.
i rather give up now than him find it.
but, i’m pretty upset

exercise regularly (read all 2 entries…)
!

my friend and i go running, then do a ab workout/leg workout, almost everyday after school and on weekends.
i’m pretty sure we’ll be keeping this up for several reasons!
when you have a friend with you, it makes it so much better.



have a flat stomach (read all 3 entries…)
come on!

i’ve been doing a ab workout with my friend for a while now [along with running and other things]
i just want results to start showing!
i NEED to cut back on how much i eat too, but that’s really hard!!! i think my non-flat stomach embarrassing…



fast
Untitled

the first time i did this was because i wanted to know what it would be like to not eat for a day. i then found out it’s healthy to fast. i told myself to fast 1 day a month [and gradually move up to 3 or 4 days]
last month i did the one meal a day, but this time time i’m doing a water fast for only 1 day.
i really want to do a juice fast, and I would really like to know some good juices i could pick up from the store.



exercise regularly (read all 2 entries…)
cold

right now, my excuse is that it’s too cold outside and i hate being around so many people at the gym

but every time it does warm up a little, i do go on a little walk with my friend [i know i can do better than that haha]

so yah i need to run anyways for volleyball sooo i need to get on it NOW.
