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.

I was learning Russian but then I realised I wouldn’t want to live there due to the homophobia, racism, heteronormativity, corruption, etc. It’s still really beautiful but I’d rather invest in something more useful.
To prepare for moving to a superlative country like Norway or something, or learn Spanish because it’s widely spoken and useful in terms of travel and interaction? 19 months ago

RoseSemester 1 2012

I got a 78 for Academic Communication and 75 for Philosophy, these are both Distinctions, but I do not feel comfortable saying my first semester was successful. I think the marks are both more than I deserve and less than I wanted. I think I do not deserve the marks and the first was just due to being a medium fish in a pool of illiterate fish who aren’t being unfairly advantaged like me (unwilling teacher’s pet) and the second mark is only just a Distinction because I know words good sometimes and any good was a result of mania and not sustained effort. I did not do my best work and forgot things too quickly and didn’t do all my reading and listening for Philosophy, which I really cared about but couldn’t keep on top of.
I was behind by like week 3 and I’m really scared about next Semester in which I have 3 units. Hopefully being full time will kick me into gear and caring will kick me into gear but I thought that about Philosophy and I was euphorically infatuated but I still couldn’t get my stuff together.
A big challenge will be saying no to my friends and boyfriends when I am consumed with guilt about being a bad girl/friend 2 years ago

Last pay I didn’t even pay my pretend ‘rent’ – I work so hard I need to drink away all my money! 2 years ago


RoseThank you!

I am going a bit wild at the moment. I will figure a budget in the next fortnight and start it next pay – the cash in hand method seems sensible. Thanks for your support!! 2 years ago


RoseCrunchy

Okay, so crunch time (graphs, etc on expenditure) was due yesterday, so instead of doing that (I’m a bit scared), I’ve booked a hotel, bought two packs of fags, and got nail decals off ebay.

Now- let’s amp up my savings. Tiny little increments so I don’t get overwhelmed. Also, I want headphones!

Previous:

$165 – travel fund
$100 – rent to mother
$300 – savings fund

Saving = $465 per fortnight

Now:

$165 – travel fund
$100 – rent to mother
$335 – savings fund

Saving = 500 per fortnight :)

For the next fortnight I now have $619.58

If I’d not been a dork I’d know how to budget that! 2 years ago

I think I have satisfactorily reduced this compulsion to mere occasional unhygienic habit within the realms of normality.

Different skin products and just getting over adolescence hae helped clear my skin, repeated emotional upset means that I have had the strength to leave myself alone. Hopefully this doesn’t jinx it. 2 years ago
