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.

Find a more affordable Apartment
Untitled

This will probably be one of the last goals i achieve this year. We just moved into a new apartment and our lease does not end until the end of October. Our apartment is so expensive and our electric bill we hoped would be a lot less than it is. So we are stuck until much later this year because our landlord gave us fair warning that we would be sued. So i have the next 9 months to find a great apartment to get ready to move into and save money for the deposit.



Graduate at the end of Fall Quarter
Untitled

I am working towards my Associate Business Degree. I am second year and really really hoping to graduate at the end of this years fall quarter. It won’t be the end of the world if i can’t but it would be nice. The next step is to figure out what i am going to do with this degree. Hopefully something great. To achieve this i will really have to buckle down and take a lot of classes.



bake something from scratch
Untitled

If you have read my other entries you would have learned that i am a terrible cook. If i can’t master cooking i would love to master baking. My aunt had this great recipe with oreos and pudding that i am pretty good at. So this year, once i get all the ingredients and find a great recipe, i would like to bake something from scratch. I may start with something easier like cookies but i would love to bake a cake from scratch by the end of this year.
