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.

warning: emotional moment to follow.


notice: emotion receding to semi-normal levels.

lol I had to run to a store today in a plaza I really don’t frequent, and I just “happened” to walk by a rental place. And once again I thought, “ya know, if I just went ahead and rented it here, I could mark it off 43things.” :) I’ve been looking online for it for quite awhile now and couldn’t even find a place to watch it in a foreign language with English subtitles let alone rent the real thing!!

Now I needed to watch it a few days ago, and I’m truthfully not sure I want to watch it that much right now. But, that’s okay. I got it, I’ll watch it, and I hope I enjoy it and get as inspired as I’m hoping.

Anyway, I was very, very happy as I walked past the bus stop without even realizing. :P

Now would be good....

Seriously. I just botched up another meal. It usually turns out good, but I can never remember the ratio of spices so I always have to keep spicing and tasting every single time I make it. (shakes head) And today? I used frozen ingredients instead of refrigerated, and yeah, well, lets just say ain’t no spices fixing this.

And I made two batches!!!! and will not waste food, so guess who gets to eat it. joy, joy.

sigh. oh well, it could be worse. goodness knows I’ve made this worse before!!! lol

I need to watch this....desperately want to.

Can’t find this anywhere online to watch free or even to rent.


I just burned part of dinner. no joke!
