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.

clay cafe?

we didn’t go to see giant robotic insects last weekend, but thats OK! because we’re going soon.

other places of interest i have been in halifax: gus’s pub! what a great place. i would like to go again. its the type of snobby atmosphere i’m used to (unfortunately) so there are lots of snobs to mock! hahha but really it was fun. i liked it alot.

this weekends new place – THE CLAY CAFE!!!!

thats right

last night there was a crazy thunderstorm. i dont really know whats going on since this is halifax and its january. it should be a snowstorm, but no. either way, lying in bed listening to a gale (as i called it) is fantastic when you can’t sleep! an east coast gale. i love living so close to the ocean. i pretended i was on a boat. it was nice.

today me and eric went to maki maki, for suchi. i had never been there before and was surprised. its so small but the food is delicious. i am happy to have tried this delicious halifax restaurant.

this weekend, i’m taking the roommates to the natural history museum to see GIANT ROBOTIC INSECTS. it should be awesome. JUST LIKE HALIFAX…..YEAH!


used the bus system by my SELF yesterday. goooooood times. i feel more than ever that halifax is at my finger tips with my new bus pass and bus taking abilities. tonight we may go to the movies, or go bowling (!), something that i have never done in halifax before! zooooooooot!

lower deck

i went to the lower deck on saturday night with chloe and meg. it was SUCH a great time. it was really great nova scotian atmosphere. tomorrow i have no school so i am going to spend all day at the kings library. WORKING HARD. kings library is awesome!


last night i went to see a movie with chloe and meg. today me and meg went to the market and then walked around downtown. we went to shops! we saw huge enormous boats in the harbour! in general we felt very nova scotian and kept commenting on how awesome halifax really is. tonight we are going to a great haligonian spot. the alehouse! bottoms up.
