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.

- The Robots.

I didn't bust my elbow as bad as was initially thought. Nice bruise!

I want to study Discourse and Argumentation Theory (MA) at the University of Amsterdam.

I don’t feel like I want to settle for less, and now I’ve written it down I need to start building foundations for it to be a real possibility. 2 years ago


We broke up.

I will continue this goal. 2 years ago

behere_noww/c November 7

Monday 7 November: Received my first essay of the Semester back. The essay was about how music can no longer be defined in terms of sound alone. I got a 70 which is exactly a first.

Tuesday 8 November: Today I received my second essay and also marks for my presentation on Obama 2008 and Social Media. I wrote an essay on Geert Wilders which is a provisional 71 (it is going to be externally marked) and a 71 for my presentation :] 3 years ago

behere_nowPresentation #2

I have another presentation on Monday with 3 other people from my BA course. We will then re-present the following week (with improvements)

I will be presenting on Pete Seeger’s “Waist Deep in The Big Muddy” which became one of my favourite songs after I was introduced to it in my American Studies class last year. 3 years ago


I drink Lucozade before, during and after football.

Does this count?! :/ 3 years ago


I am making life difficult for myself by doing this, but I will not accept being spoken to in a disrespectful manner.

I would not have done this six months, a year ago but I cannot let this incident drop. I am appalled at the way I have been spoken to and I cannot let people live their lives thinking that they are able to speak to people in such a way and “get away” with it. 3 years ago

behere_nowMA Rhetoric

I would really like to enrol on the above course upon graduation from my BA. Funding the course is a whole different ball game and I am not entirely sure how it would happen. 3 years ago

: Due to graduate aged 23 – BA (Hons) American Studies 3 years ago


I have been told by a friend that it is really important to take pictures of me and my significant other. Because if the worst happens and we break up, at least we will have the memories.

EDIT: I tried to take pictures of us on Friday but it was too dark, and I hate the flash on Sony cameras! 3 years ago

I have been placed in the second team this season. It looks like I am going to be playing “out of position”, but this will enable me to learn and adapt to different situations.

I am already feeling the importance of stretching, as DOMS are in full effect in my calves. 3 years ago

behere_nowSports Therapy

My University has a Sports Therapy Clinic and I regularly attend as I get really bad DOMS after soccer. The guys who treated me last year told me to take a yoga class. Not for relaxation, but to improve flexibility. One of my team mates said I have a problem where my knees go inwards, which is probably causing me issues. 3 years ago


Today was presentation day. It was frustrating because there wasn’t enough time for me and another guy from my class to present, so it was really rushed and I didn’t get to say half of the things I wanted to. We will see what happens when I get the results.. 3 years ago

behere_now"Facebook Generation"

I am part of the above “generation” for whom it immensely easy to communicate with one another via technological means. As a result, handwriting suffers, as does thought. I believe that it is important to take the time to handwrite thoughts – something I will be doing this weekend as I have two friends’ birthdays coming up. 3 years ago
