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.

Four years later I’m going to apply one more time. I was a little too presumptuous last time and yet I knew the end result as well. This time, I’m going to be a little more modest and realistic with my expectations. I have work that I’ve workshopped and will workshop and also some folks I will hit up for recs. As for right now, it’s about writing and working on my personal statements! 9 months ago

Cade PetersonIt's happening!

This was a dream I put down a few years back, but lately things have just made sense.

It’s been a bit of a whirlwind, but I checked out some schools, applied, got my transcripts, etc in and the went through a phone interview. All went very smoothly and the admissions board has given me their recommendation for acceptance pending my GMAT scores. Well, I took the GMAT yesterday and the unofficial scores they gave me afterwards appear to be high enough to get in, so I just have to wait for the school’s final decision!

Today, I showed my apartment to a nice young couple that is looking to sublet too. This is a new one for me, but otherwise I’m working on completing all the necessary final tasks. Next thing to get going on is the finances, but I already won 2 scholarships which will cover almost 50% of the tuition.

ACK! It’s just all happening so fast, but I’m extremely excited!

The bonus thing is that this school is in an other country—China! I don’t speak Chinese, much less have never been there. It’ll be a new adventure in almost every way possible. The classes are all in English, but they require learning the local main language (Mandarin), and I’m looking forward to diving into the local culture.

WHEW! I’ll update when I have more to share. 19 months ago

zsailorPlan and Resources

I need to do well in my undergraduate years in order to attend a good graduate school for my degree in psychology. In order to do well I need to study and make sure I am doing my homework as it is assigned so I can put forth my best effort on assignments and studying. I need a planner to schedule things accordingly so that I know when things are due. I need to also be aware of upcoming deadlines. I will also need to make sure that I am looking into graduate schools ahead of time to know what it takes to get into the ones I want. 19 months ago
