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.

joie de vivreWasn't planning on doing this so soon

But if I’m going to be doing a job interview, I probably should do it now. 7 months ago

dc_mercutioMajor re-write

Did some great edits this weekend and finally feeling good about how my resume is looking. Still needs a little tweaking but its much improved. 15 months ago

BarbResume Updating

I realize it’s been 15 years since I updated my resume. I haven’t applied for a job in that long. While the job I am applying for this coming week doesn’t require a resume, I think having a current resume is important anyway.

So, I have purchased Resume maker, to make my life easier. I already used it to write a cover letter, so the rest should be easy, right? 19 months ago


finished just need to get all my references together now 20 months ago


gotta get this done today 20 months ago

moniiawork in progress..

Decided to apply for a part time job with the Campus Recreation. I really enjoy working for the Campus Police Department but since I’m only an extra, I can’t get any more hours. It doesn’t help that I’m the only one there that doesn’t have someone related to me on the force. But hopefully everything goes well during the meeting. After which means that I will hand in my cover letter, resume, and application. Which explains this entry post. Once I get back to campus I’ll visit the Career Center to go over my resume before my meeting.

This is all is getting a bit overwhelming, the idea of having two part time jobs along with being a full time student and the responsibilities I have with different clubs and RSOs. ughh..

This is one of those depression/anxiety WALL OF OVERWHELMING tasks every time I look at it. Time to break it down into ridiculously small chunks.

  • Base cover letter
  • Job history
  • Housekeeping skill set
  • Clerical skill set
  • Medical/treatment skill set
  • Training dates
  • References21 months ago


I’m working on this now. It’s annoying because I have to make different versions of it for different jobs I’m interested in. I’m pretty much a resume expert by now because of all of my job searching so you’d think I would be used to it! 23 months ago

kerfuffledUpdated (but still a WIP)

Since I didn’t really have a resume and hadn’t had one in – well except my first job out of school – I now have one that I’ve sent out to about 11 places.

Looking it over now I see I made some major and minor errors and just an overall feeling of dread. Some certifications I got wrong and dates were shaky – mostly because I have a lot of those things in my storage locker (cleaning that out is another one of my 43 things). But it is updated and only needs tweaking now. Creating it was what really took the life out of me. That took a good several days not just creating it but of looking up sample resumes and advice over the web.

If I get any interviews from these, I may be problematic on a couple of fronts. The least of which is after gaining my unemployment 15 pounds I don’t fit into any decent clothes anymore! 23 months ago

kerfuffledI done some research, some writing, and some reachout

Geez, why didn’t i do this months ago? My resume is pathetic. I’m trying to get more aggressive with the job hunting so the resume has really got to be in better shape. 2 years ago
