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.

Ok, half done!

I’m very excited cause as from tomorrow, if everything goes with it’s current force of energy, my apparment will be finally painted!!!!!!!!!

I checked out the painter’s work yesterday, and they have prepared all walls except for the kitchen. Today they said they start painting, so I’m excited to see how it turns out. Maybe they start the vintage pink wall? I’ll check it out after work and see.

Paintmen doing their job

This is the first day the hired painters have come to work on the walls and afterwards paint. I do hope everything goes nice, smooth and tidy and that the final result is great.

Gonna check on them.

Not yet

After daaaaays of hard work, looks like I’m going to hire a professional to do this. I takes way more than I imagined, plus the walls were basicly destroyed.

I’m gonna be needing a true painter here…

So tired!!

After a LOT of work my friend and I got most of the old paint out of one wall, it’s been such a long and tiring day!!

There’s still much to do, I want so much to get it done, that I will keep going even tired!!

Current Status

I’ve bought the paint. Had to get a lighter color than the one I wanted, cause the original one was too expensive. But the new one isn’t so bad either.

Also bought all the equiped and cover the little holes in the walls, and moved the furnitire. There’s still a lot work coming, but I’m getting help from a friend!!

Can’t wait to see it all nice and done!

Making the preparations

Ok, now I’m trying to get friends to paint with me :P It’s a small appartment, but it is still a LOT of work for one little me. I know it’s a bit annoying, but actually I’m looking foward for it.

This is the current situation


I’ve been wanting to paint the walls of my rented apparment every since I moved in. Why? Cause I simply and passionately HATE the color they hay now. It’s a greenish sort of yellowish boring color that has nothing to do with me! and it was rather badly painted, so its not even…even! XD!

So what I’ve done so far is get supplies, choose the color and start preparing the walls. That’s the hard part though. Preparing the walls actually isn’t that bad, but its a LOT of work.

Anyways, since I want to do it, I don’t mind, I just have to take it slowly.

Hopefully this weekened it will all be painted!!
