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.

get a daschund
close, but no cigar

so…my real goal was to just get a dog and that happened! my aunt’s dog was pregnant and since she was away in thailand for a month, she wasn’t even aware of it. we were looking after all her dogs and once we noticed, we brought her over to my house so we could watch her closely. she had a litter of 4 and it’s been two months so it was time for the puppies to part their mom. two went away a couple days ago and i was a little sad since i was attached to them. one more is still waiting for the poeple to pick her up and she’s my favorite. i got to keep the last one—the only boy, a brown feisty but sweet lil puppy.

not a daschund, but it’ll do. i don’t even know what breed it is, but it’s my little mutt now. :)

get a job
It came so unexpectedly!

So after forgetting about the whole ‘getting a job’ ordeal, I brought my cousins to enter this math/reading enrichment program at the Kumon Learning Center. Out of nowhere the intructor offered me a job there and it’s pretty awesome. I only work 11 hours a week but it’s great because I’m not in dire need of the money and it still gives me time for all that college mess. I don’t do anything but work with kids on relatively basic math. It’s the easiest job ever. The pay isn’t bad as well. I get a raise next month.
