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.

Ice Princess

Where does one go to try ice skating, in my case a very hot country!
The Sunway Pyramid shopping mall in Malaysia has an ice rink in it. I went ice skating with my look alike second cousin. The first time around I held onto the side and the skates really hurt my feet. I went and asked to swap them and they measured my feet again and were like oh these are too big. I was like NO! They squeezed my feet terribly. The new skates were better but started to hurt after a while so I had to sit every so often to regain the will to skate.
I let got of the side and I could skate and even turn. Pretty good I thought until I saw toddlers doing jumps.
I have no idea how to stop. Well apart from going splat into the side. Not that I even did that. I didn’t fall over at all. Really amazing considering that I am so accident prone. But then my cousin fell over enough for the both of us. I told her to let go of the side but she refused. Poor girl did not have much fun.
I quite liked it when my feet weren’t hurting and I wasn’t worried about falling over.


I want to:
