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.

Madeline KollerSecond show!

So I just finished by second radio show. It was definitely better than the first, albeit with a few hiccups here and there. Now I need to get ready for next Sunday. 2 years ago


Madeline KollerFirst Show...Not as Planned.

I signed up to be an on-campus DJ. Unfortunately, I was late to my own first show. Fortunately, everything else went fine. Hopefully next week goes better on the scheduling front. 2 years ago


Madeline KollerDon't give up!

I know how you feel; I also am going through college and I agree, life happens. But when it does happen, just start over with new numbers and try to get better each time. You can do it! 2 years ago


Madeline KollerI was doing fine for a while there...

So I got my college refund check back in January. Immediately I plugged in the numbers, setting aside specific amounts of money for specific things. And through all of January, I did great! I never went over budget, and even created a $500 rainy day fund.

Then February happened, and I decided I wanted stuff. Now my account is near zero, so I’m going to take $160 out of my rainy day fund to compensate. Meaning that through the end of this month, and into March, I need to be better about what I spend my money on. 2 years ago


Madeline KollerI've never been a sports person...

So as I was sitting around one day, I got to thinking, “Maybe I should look into taking interest in sports, like all the normal people do.”

I decided that football was too vulgar, soccer too rare in America, and basketball, while an amazing choice, just not currently in my line of interest. Therefore, I decided baseball would be the most fun option.

So I guess, for this goal, I’m going to try to take an interest in MLB. Who knows? It could be fun. 2 years ago

Madeline KollerThank God for Excel Spreadsheets!

So I’ve come up with a set of planned expenses based on my financial aid estimate for next term. As the term unfolds I hope to be as conservative with my spending as I can be. 2 years ago

Madeline KollerBy the power of Chlorophyll!

I think it would be really cool to plant trees in the desert as a way to help cultivate the environment. 2 years ago

Madeline KollerYou see, it all started when...

I arrived at OIT with wayyyyyy too much stuff to fit in a dorm. By the time I started swapping my wardrobe over (as part of my transition from living male to living female) I couldn’t find anywhere to put anything! So I’ve been trying to clean up a bit. Most of my old clothes went to Goodwill. I’ll probably take the rest of them in over the next few weeks.

Paper goods are the bane of my existence. I have to focus on getting a better system of filing things, and throwing out things I will simply never look at again, such as old forms or graded assignments. Finally, I need to sell off some of the things I never use so they aren’t taking up unnecessary space. 2 years ago
