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.

What's your reading speed?

I like this timed test – even more when I got my result! :)

Feeling like a princess

Oh, yeah :)

More Lush!

To celebrate handing in the penultimate assignment, I took up the offer of the Lush new product demo last night – okay, hardly mega-celebratory, but I do have to get cracking with more work today so couldn’t go too overboard!

And… I’m utterly in love with the new products already! I know, I’m a Lush junkie anyway, but I am soooooo looking forward to trying the new stuff, with varying scents of cinnamon, rose, tropical coconut and more!

Was very restrained after the demo: got a new steamer tab (extortionately expensive for what it is, but ‘treat’!) with soothing lavender – will help both my skin and stress levels over the final assignment push. Still working my way through the xmas stuff, too, so today the livingroom has a very intriguing scent from the peppermint/vanilla/orange combo that’ll hit my bath in the next few days.

Gotta love that fun can be so ‘harmless’ ;)

I <3 libraries!

Oh, glorious depot of wondrous books how I adore thee!

The choices – so random, so anything.

Not needing to find shelf space to store more books!

And best of all – it’s free! :):)

support your local library today!

Hobbycraft drooling!

Oooh, but that was fun! Shared obsessions hobbies and a trip ‘round hobbycraft drooling over bits and pieces and feeling all fired up to get back in touch with my creative side!
(hence the reopening of this goal – I want to!)

I was very good and didn’t spend too much, honest! ;) (okay, mostly ‘cos I had to carry it all back on the train!)

Best fun ever!

A weekend with my best mates. See you Monday! :)

Watching cute videos!

Most adorabiggle thing ever: pet pygmy hedgehogs! :)

Lush newbies! :)

Following a bit of a mail-order binge last week, the last thing I needed was to buy new Lush stuff. However, (a) it’s three weeks til the forum party specials will be sent out, and (b) there was a student party night! Couldn’t resist the idea of a few freebies ;)

And I’m well chuffed! Out of the goodie bag, I’d only tried the soaps before, and they’re just samples anyway. I got a full tub of dark angels face scrub that I definitely fancied trying, plus ultrabland sample, flying fox shower gel, an emotibomb, and 10% off the stuff I actually bought.

Sometimes I’m very easy (if not very cheaply!) pleased :)

PS mustn’t forget – also got a free choc chip cookie to eat on the walk back to the bus :)
