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.

go to law school (read all 3 entries…)

The deadline to register for the June LSAT is tomorrow. I’m terrified. I’ve had a month to study and I haven’t shown much improvement. But I don’t want to wait until October to take the next test. I want to apply to schools as early as possible.

Work has been stressful and it’s often difficult to try to study after I come home from a busy day.

There’s no turning back if I decide to register…

99% doing it

It’s been more than a year since I put law school on my to do list. At that time, I was perhaps 20% certain of going. This past year, the percentage has fluctuated from 5% to now, 99%.

I’ve learned a lot this past year. I moved to a new city, started a full time job and realized that I really do want to go to law school and as cliche as it sounds, make a difference and help people.

It’s the first week of April and I need to start studying for the LSAT. I plan to take it in June. I don’t want to drag this out any longer. The LSAT is my biggest hurdle. I want to do well. And I’m stubborn, so I don’t plan on taking any classes.

After that I will worry about finding my teachers for reference letters (I don’t think any of them will remember me) and thinking about my personal statement and which schools. But for now, I will focus on familiarizing myself with the LSAT for the next two months while also juggling a full time job and volunteering on the weekends.

Wish me good luck!

Afford a place of my own
My own place

I’ve always lived with people. My family. Roommates in college. Now, as I go out into the “real world” in NYC, I want to have be able to afford my own apartment all to myself. I know that is still a dream for me.

I cannot wait for the day when I can have a place that I can decorate for myself, leave the dishes in the sink without anyone nagging, not have to look at someone else’s dirty mess, and pick my nose in peace!
