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.

Getting Into College

Was a bitch!

But hey… here are some tips

1) Don’t leave applying for scholarships for even Junior Year, start ASAP. You don’t want to be facing loans scared as hell.
2) If you want to go to an out-of-state college start saving up early as hell
3) Convince your parents early to start saving up for you. FOR REAL.
4) Keep taking the SATS/ACTs over and over, and make sure you study every time
5) If you don’t like the clubs at your school, make your own! Make your teacher help you.
6) Even though community service seems stupid, they have WHOLE sections on college applications about it, so you best get helping.
7) Enjoy high school as much as possible, because life will never be that easy again.

IS the best!!
