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.

This year I finally got my shit together and applied to six Creative Writing MFA programs. I was accepted to three of the six, and two of them offered me merit scholarships!

Honestly? I was totally shocked! I thought maybe ONE program would accept me, if I was lucky. I never imagined I’d actually have to make a choice.

It was tough, probably one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever made in my life. But after a lot of thought, I decided to attend the Vermont College of Fine Arts. It’s a low-residency program, and I start in June :-) 2 years ago

I finally managed to worm my way into a larger house by moving in with my long-time boyfriend who owns a condo on Long Island. Yes, my work commute sucks now, but at least I have space to put all my crap AND I have heat in the winter. Huzzah! 2 years ago
