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.

apply to college

I really need to start getting my apps done! I need my letters of recommendation and my FAFSA too! It’s so stressful. I just started writing my essays. I really want to get this done as soon as possible but it’s hard with school starting and work and all of that too…

be unemployed

I hate working during the school year. I loved doing it in the summer! But it gets to be way too much for me when I have both to deal with, especially with all of my AP classes. But on the other hand, I really do need the money for things like clothes…going out with friends…etc. I am also saving for college. But I feel like I could get much better grades if I quit my job. I don’t know! I’ve been sick this weekend, so I had to call in sick, and I’ve just been doing homework! It’s unbelievable how much time I feel like I have for school when I am not working. I’m pretty torn right now.
