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.

my new option

thought it’s not the best 1 is enter as many contests as i can and play scratch tickets since the job transition(i think thats the right word) isn’t go as smoothly as i hoped. Of course i still have some hope for Arbella.

I'm still looking for a new job

though i’m starting to get very frustrated. I rather not work with food but i might have to. Maybe this won’t as quick as i though although it hasn’t been that long.

I am getting a better ...

sense of direction by walking. It will probably will get even better when i get my license but i now know how to get to some places that i didn’t before.

I'm going to buy shoes this week

and maybe a new pair of pants and a shirt. I might keep my old job for a few weeks just to get extra money even when i find another job.

i'm hoping this doesn't take too long

get better sense of direction

Even though the insurance didn't work out

I’m not giving up because i’m tired of the situation and if you give up you won’t succeed.

The books are basically done

with my friend’s help. He condense them more than I would have but it works for now.

here's another 1

buy some new clothes

I'm almost done with...

my new list of 101 in 1001 days. I’m not posting until the the current list is over.

I started putting my winter clothes away

i’ll finish in a few days since it’s not warm everyday yet.
