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 over my crush (read all 2 entries…)

Well, I’ve found someone else to crush on and he is totally out of my reach (celebrity in another place), which is good for me because I don’t have to spend so much time thinking to myself “what if ?”.

I’m happy…I can move on!!!!

be normal

No point in trying…

decide what the hell I would like to do with the rest of my life
changing career path?!?

I’ll be graduationg with a B.A. in Anthropology in less than 3 months. I don’t like the job outlook of having a liberal arts degree, so I’ll be going right back to school to start working on a career in Pharmacy. Health care, engineering, and computer science degrees seem to have the best job outlook, I’m sure there are others. While I was a freshman, I just took a subject I enjoyed and kept taking the courses. Does anyone else have an issue with the degree they persued and are now going back to school to take an entirely different career path?
