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.

BohemiaGlamI have my MA!

Im so pleased to say that my two and a half years of master studies are completed. A new months after graduation, i notice the highs and lows i experienced. When i was officially done, i went through a lot of soul searching, and applied for jobs frantically, looking for my next project. This was obsessive and led to a depressive feeling of confusion and rejection. Truthfully, job searching was busy work, i was applying to anything under the sun and had no idea what i wanted to do. No wonder i was not receiving answers or guidance.

So i decided to rest after many months of unrest. After all, these years of my MA and BA previously had been filled with hard work, exhaustion, and dedication. I deserved and needed time to think and to enjoy my current free time rather than obsessing about how to fill it. All that to say i experienced a transitional state of confusion and soul searching. Perhaps from anticipating graduation as this miracle (*can’t hear the harp!) that would make everything in my life make sense. There was definitely an expectation management fail on my part. But im satisfied with my achievements now and realize i have been very anxious and high strung to get it done, im finally letting go, appreciating and unwinding, which i believe will lead me to the next steps…

Learning how to breathe again… and onwards. 9 months ago

Will have completed my Masters in Adult Literacy by the end of this year. Seems like such an easy thing to say, in reality it is a slow hard grind, pouring hours and discipline into this. the quote “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” rings true. 19 months ago

BohemiaGlamMay, here we come!

May is when i hope and expect to finish my thesis work and apply for my graduation in November.

From March to May, i have LOADS of work in front of me. At this point i have figured out generally what my topic is, and my academic supervisor is on board, although i need a field supervisor, that is not yet secured. Yikes.

Im just getting started writing and looking for sources, putting everything together. God. This is probably why im on this site! Avoiding!!!

I hope to report back with a completed thesis, presentation, and graduation application!

Best of luck to others in the same boat! 20 months ago

Now I have to write my thesis, defend it, and submit it to the university. I can’t decide if this is the home stretch or the hardest part, now being unemployed… 2 years ago
