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.

tardis88Essay done (2 of 3.5 complete)

Essay finished. Now all I have left is this last course and the supplementary exam.

Feels like a never-ending hill with no end in sight but I’m trying to remind myself that this moment, this phase of my life is about to end. Unless I go back to school again, it might never come back.

It’s just a little bit hard though to swallow the experience and realize its importance when you are in the thick of things and you’re worried about juggling so many different things.

But I know one day, I’ll look back at this and feel a bit nostalgic, a bit sad. It’s the end of this journey and man… what a journey it has been. 5 months ago

5 years of my student life are over! They brought a lot of friends, joy and knowledge to me. Sure, it was the great experience. It’s time to move on! 5 months ago

tardis88It too shall pass...

It’s true what they always say, everything does pass (whether you like it to or not).

Went to my last class for the 2nd (of 3) courses I’m taking this summer. I think the course went alright. I only have a final to do and an essay to complete by next week and I should be done this course. Unlike the last course (which I passed with a B+), I think I’ve positioned myself to pass this one. I didn’t bomb the midterm nor skipped too many classes (I’m also up-to-date with the readings) so that should be a good sign.

At this point, I don’t really care about the grades. I just want to get the credit and on tot he next one.

My heart beats for the supplementary that I have to do in August. It’s a course I got a D last term (simply because I didn’t study/burnt out :X). I usually can pass multiple choice questions but this one has a lot of short answer questions so I really need to put in the time to really know my stuff. I just need to get a 60+ to pass that course so hopefully. I’m trying to study 2 hours every day until then in order to prepare for it. Hopefully, I’m so terrified of that though just because I know the ramifications of that exam (it’s basically THE exam that determines whether I walk down the stage in October).

Basically I’m done, actually. This next one I’m taking starting this month is an elective. Had to take it just to get full-time status with my government loan (so they could give me money). I don’t mind at all though since I find the course kind of fascinating.

Going to be interesting how I juggle things but definitely will need to put higher priority on that supplementary. Must pass that so we’ll see what happens. 5 months ago

triiiinuI did it!

3 years of school and homework and waking up ridiculously early and tests and drama and all those laughs with my classmates and learning and mental breakdowns and stress and all that jazz – done! 5 months ago

Yay, got my final grade for that course in May and I got a B+. Calculated and apparently I got an 82 in the final exam. Now if I had just attended a few classes and actually studied for the mid-term, I could have eeked out an A but what can you do.

Now I’m just dealing with this PHIL course, the awesome myth course next month and my supplementary in August. Probably this one I’m in right now (PHIL) is a bit tougher because I have to actually think a lot and write a lot but I guess school won’t let me go as easily.

Just focusing one day at a time. I can make it. I can make it. Just one day at a time. I’m almost there. 6 months ago

ScarrletRavenLast Exam

My last exam is in two days. So far, I have shining As in all of my classes, so I’m hoping this final exam goes well. It’s lovely not having any more projects or assignments. I can read the books I have been yearning to read, take all the coursera courses I want and not have to worry about the mounds of school work I have stacking up. Ah, graduation is soon! Of course, I still have to select which school I will be attending after graduation. Exciting times await. 6 months ago

tardis881 course down...

Did my exam last week. Don’t know what I got, hopefully a passing mark. I only had to get about a 42 in the exam in order to pass so hopefully, I at least got that. I think I did a passing, we’ll see soon enough (probably this week).

My next course starts next week (have a week break). If my government funding falls through, that course will be the last one that I have to take. If the funding goes through though, after that, my last one is in July.

We’ll see. I’m actually fine with either (I want to finish already but at the same time, the influx of money would be a welcome thing for me).

Slowly getting there though. Slowly getting there. 6 months ago

tardis883 more to ...

Just got my last pending grade back, got a B+. Thank the Lord.

Now I only have three to go: the course I’m taking now (ending at the end of the month), another course in June and a final-redo in August.

If I get government funding, I might have to take another course in July but all in all, if all goes well, I should be done by August.


It seemed such a long drawn out affair but I’m starting to see the finish line now and it’s starting to look like I will be able to cross it. It’s not over until it’s over though. Not until I get that final grade back! 7 months ago


Got almost all my grades for this past term. Just waiting for one more, hopefully the prof passes me (I handed in the final paper late and let’s just say it wasn’t the best of attempts).

If all goes well, I just need to finish two summer school courses and do a final-redo for one of my courses in August and that’ll be it for my undergrad career. Then again, if that last course (with a pending grade) doesn’t pan out, I’ll have to spend another semester here, taking one 400 level course.


At this point, I just want to be done. There’s not even any attempts anymore to get high grades, it’s just trying to pass so I can finally leave the studying behind. I just want to be free… 7 months ago
