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 tattoo

I’ve always wanted a tattoo but I knew I couldnt trust myself and probably get something I didnt want later on in life, however I’ve finally found something that I’ve wanted for such a long time aswell and it means to much to me. Its a ‘0’ on my left wrist and the infinity sign on the right wrist.
I am such a maths nerd, I’m going to Uni in September to do maths infact, haha. But its not just for the subject, its the beauty of it. Especially infinity, its just mind boggling to think about it.
Its like the thought, if the universe is infinite then anything is possible, it may be a small chance but somewhere, out there, its happened, gonna happen or not have or will, but nevertheless its a very nice thought that anything can happen. Optimistic, of course.

decide on a career (read all 3 entries…)
A new plan! Joys!

Note the sarcasm.
Although, actually, I am pretty excited about it. I’ve been accepted into the University of East Anglia (Shamefully also know as University of Easy Access, haha). And I’m gonna go study Mathematics! Providing I get the grades on my current course at college. But yes, I’m really excited, moving away to Norwich with my boyfriend gonna be a student bum!
I’m learning towards doing more and do something involving mathematical research, it proper excites me.
Yes, I’m a nerd, but I looovvveee it!

be out of debt with parents

It took awhile but finally, its done! It feels so good. =]
I had some help, my birthday and christmas gift was getting some of the money taken off, which I’m glad cause I would of felt guilty taking anything else off them.
