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.

In midterms now. I’m getting pretty good grades, so I’m definitely learning. I’ll mark this off as done when the class ends though, just to make it feel more official. :) 2 years ago

catchlightningWeek three!

It’s been incredibly overwhelming but I’ve learned so much already. I will definitely be checking this off end December! 2 years ago

catchlightningSigned up for it again this semester...

Hopefully the class won’t get canceled! I’m looking forwards to marking this off. 2 years ago

catchlightningOr not...

My class has been canceled due to lack of enrollment and now I have to scramble to find SOMETHING to fill the gap! Yeeesh. So disappointed, I was looking forwards to this very much! 2 years ago


Signed up for my summer classes. I’ll be using two of my three electives. One of the classes I’m taking is Calligraphy! I can’t wait and I hope I will be good enough to at least mark this off as done by the end of the semester. I’ll say I’ve learned it when I get into intermediate levels. After all there’s always something new to learn. 2 years ago
