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.

finish my bachelors degree (read all 4 entries…)
Finished it...

Now I have finished my bachelor’s degree in social sciences, social and public policies as my major, economics and political science as minors. This was worth doing because I am going to do master’s degree in social sciences and bachelor’s degree is compulsory for it. Bachelor’s degree alone is totally useless.

In old times finishing bachelor’s degree wasn’t compulsory, you could get it if you wanted or go straight to master’s degree. But now Finnish university system meets the EU standards, and we have to do useless bachelor’s degree.

buy a digital pvr (read all 4 entries…)

I read that Humax PVR-9200C is quite noisy. So I decided to buy Topfield 5100C. Oh yeah, it works fine with the newest firmware. I’m also having Canal Digital -movie channels two weeks for free. Two days has gone and I have recorded about 40 gigabytes of movies. Now I must have some time to watch them…

finish my bachelors degree (read all 4 entries…)

Finishing the bachelor’s degree is getting nearer. I must only write the maturity exam and pass the compulsory swedish course. And after this spring it’ll take about two years to finish my master’s degree. And what then? Academic unemployment, short-term jobs, vocational retraining by employment office and so on. (Pessimists will have only positive surprises…)
