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.

imarriedakenyanPaid for and registered for all but one class

I have registered and have paid for my spring and summer classes that will complete my degree. I am currently waiting on my background check to come back so that I can register for the final class. I am taking the summer off from work just so I can focus on the last 5 classes that I must take. So I can’t stop now.
Now if the background check does not return in time, I will just take the final class in the fall and during that time I will finish up my graduate application and the teacher certification work that I need to complete 9 months ago

So close… Yet so far away.
Two years to go and then I am finally finished with education.

...Not entirely sure why a degree is necessary in the first place, apart from it merely being the social norm.
It’s not like the subject of the degree is going to help me at all in later life, “I’d like a job in English Literature, please”.
We all know, I’m most probably going to end up and an accountant or a travel agent, something mind numbing and vague enough to half-justify employing an English Literature graduate.
