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.

continuumitaly part 2

pretty sure i’m going to rome this easter. bring on the hols. 10 months ago


i can so relate about the ‘richer’ vs ‘poorer’ school thing. when i was in year 7-8 i went to an ‘elite’ all girls grammar school, filled with rich girls from amazing families, and i absolutely hated it!! so bratty. moving to a new, normal state school was a million times better!

are you working towards becoming a teacher?

i finally have a job now, so that’s great. it’s retail so it’s a bit soul destroying and folding clothes just to have it all messed up again a second later is SOOO infuriating, but money, money, money! plus working at topshop means i get discounts at other arcadia grp shops so thats so helpful! heading back on topic, i have been working for almost 1.5 months now, full time but will reduce to some evenings and weekends once 6th form starts again.

so my savings are now at almost £5k, which i am pretty pleased about. i rememebr the days when i used to dream of having £300 saved up and thing ‘oooh i am so rich, how will i spend all my fortune??’ so dumb.

can’t wait for all of this to pay off when i finally get to travel!! 16 months ago

that baby next door is so annoying. it keeps crying all day long. really distracting!! 20 months ago


gap year fund

-interailling across europe, actually quite cheap but accomodation + food costs will kill it =/
- above=quantity over quality

- australia/new zealand
-south east asia: malasia, thailand all that gorgeous shiz

- africa – safari!!!

ugh, just want it allll!

thinking the far away places might be better. and save europe for later as it’s much easier to get to in comparison? will have to figure things out with the girls. 20 months ago


so i’m definitely planning on taking a year off after a levels, before uni (if i even end up going)and i definitely want to go travelling loads and loads during that year off. some of my other friends are also planning on taking a year off so i will have some travel buddies =D

but for this year of travelling and finding myself etc i will need loads of money!!!!!!

i have about £2.5k in my saving at the moment. which is so not enough at all. my parents said they might help fund part of it too. the deal is that whatever amount i manage to raise myself example: 5k, they will also give that amount (within reason, of course (sdly)), giving me 10k total.

anywho i have just over a year to get the finances sorted. i really hope i can manage. need a proper job so bad!!! 20 months ago

continuumfinally done

on thursday, one second the sun was shining and everything was all right, then like something out of the bible, there were angry grey clouds across the sky, and all hell broke loose. rain was falling like there was no tomorrow, it was crazy. and so as my friends and i were walking home from school, decided to start jumping and dancing while singing at the top of our voices: ‘we’re siiiinging in the rain…’ it was pretty epic actually. we laughed loads and loads and almost forgot about all the stress and doom of impending exams and such =] 20 months ago
