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 better job (read all 3 entries…)
shoot!

I went on my interview today at Bare Escentuals. It went great! The lady seem really impressed with my answers and genuinely seemed to like me. I was interviewed by two women and I was pretty comfortable the whole way through. I really thought I had it until I told the interviewer I was 17. I hate legal age laws! In 3 months am I going to be any more qualified than I am now? (okay, yes, I suppose I will be but only barely!) but I know its legal issues as well because she seemed to like my resume. Ughhh the pain and heartache of being a minor :( She gave me her business card and told me to make sure I reapply once I’m 18. I definitely will! I loveee BareEscentuals. Oh well, better luck next time :/

Is this too good to be true? Probably. But I have an interview today! At Bare Escentuals in Berkeley. I turned in a resume yesterday to a different location and got a call within about an hour. Today they want me to come in for an interview. I’d love to get this job. It’ll help me with 2 goals. 1) Get a better job and 2) Eventually become a MAC girl! Although working at Bare Escentuals might be even better than MAC…MAC is very art-focused and I feel like BE is more natural and sexy yet not as in your face as MAC. Well hopefully my interview goes well and then eventually I could work my way into a freelance job with BE. I just want to work around make up! I turned in a resume at Sephora as well. Hopefully something works out! Crossing my fingersss :)

I got this job at grocery outlet just as sort of a foot in the door. I knew Shelbi could help me get it because her parents own it but I would really like a job either in a salon or maybe a tanning salon bc I loove being bronze. If not then once I turn 18 I’m going to get a job in a makeup store for sure. Sephora, Ulta, a counter, I don’t care I just really really want a job that I like! Even though grocery outlet isn’t that bad so far. But I heard you have to have a job to get a job. Ughh vicious circleee.



Start a YouTube beauty channel

If not for anyone else to look at just for me to be able to see what looks I can do and to show people my work. Hopefully once I get a laptop for graduation it’ll be easier. :)
