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.

Pharmacy School

This goal is pretty easy now that I’m in pharmacy school but I think it would still be ideal for me to look up things personally to keep myself interested in the learning process and maintain my excitement to make big changes happen in the field.

More opportunites

So at my new university the girls dress up more often so you don’t get stared at nearly as much if you decide to wear heels. So this gives me the chance to truly master this! Yay. Haha however in saying that the girls that do dress up are kind of professionals at walking in heels. I might have to ask them for some tips! :D

Can't wait!

Ahhhh I am so excited to move. It is going to be a huge change and I don’t know anyone in the area (or state for that matter) so it is going to be an adventure. I am looking forward to starting fresh and truly developing myself as an adult.

2 passions in one

I am doing a little research on Pharmacy Journalism.

It is an opening to doing other journalistic careers (like writing for popular health magazines) which appeals to me in a greater sense. I am definitely going to keep this as an idea to bounce around in my head. A huge passion of mine is travel. Which goes hand in hand with writing and if you throw health/science into the mix then I will be one happy camper. I think this is something I could really see myself enjoying. Half-time pharmacist half-time journalist. Interesting idea.

Make cute containers for storing premade meals/snacks
Pyrex Set

I just bought a pyrex set for my new apartment that I move to in August. So pumped. I am still searching for more containers. I want some cute ones for storing flour, stevia, chia seeds, and flax seeds and all of my healthy stuff. Also some for cut up veggies and fruit for in the fridge.

The search continues!

Streamline my wardrobe/clean out my closet (read all 3 entries…)

I just donated two giant trash bags full of clothes to Good Will. I think I still have a little more refining and sifting to do but for now I am quite happy with what I have accomplished.

I am going to mark this goal off and focus on defining my style now!
