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.

well, i’ve packed about everything, paid a deposit and next month’s rent and am moving on sunday. so i guess this one is done!

a friend of mine told me she is excited for me. she feels the new place is much better for my spirit. we stopped by today to drop some things off, and even though it was depressingly dreary and drizzly today, the room was still cheerful with its peachy colored walls. i’m a little scared at what this new change is going to bring, but it’s mainly because of other things that are hard for me to let go of right now.. i am glad though, to be moving into a space that feels more comfortable.

ok about done!

i didn’t hear from the room i thought i might take if offered.. so i looked at some more places. i met some lovely people that i chatted with for an hour.. they seemed like people i would enjoy hanging out with and not just people that i wouldn’t mind living with. (and they had a really nice piece of driftwood in the apartment.. sounds silly but i put up huge branches in my room in taipei, so i just love that!) the apartment is 10 blocks from the beach, 2 blocks from the park.. down the street from an independent movie theater and a thai restaurant and sushi! i talked with one of the people there today, and.. it looks like it’s going to be my new home! i just told my current roommate i’m moving out.. so in a couple weeks i will have a new space. (i’ll keep this open until i’m physically over there though!)

being superstitious probably not the best way to look for apartments. but ever since i saw this numerology site describing the numerology of addresses, and realizing the past two addresses with all its hardships were the same number.. when i find a place i’m looking at has the same number i kind of immediately discount it! i also have to mentally arrange where the bed will be and think of little feng shui rules i have heard over the years and decide against places based on that too.

but maybe i have found something that will be ok for a little while anyways.. i am pretty tired of looking and just want to be in a different place. i am a bit scared to move too.. it will be significant of me starting to move on. to what, i have no idea..

well.. i guess i will see what works out..

don't know what to do

i wanted to find a place to see if i want to stay here. the longer it takes, i might as well just leave, or then i’m looking at subletting. because right now, i could possibly do a six month minimum lease some people need to have. later, i definitely won’t want to do that and it will be limiting. i don’t know what to do. i can’t find anything. should i just go with something that is ok and not everything i want? i just feel that’s what i did before and i am not happy there. trying not to worry about it but i don’t know what to do. i was really hoping to have a new place by now (by last month even!)


i have been looking for a while now and haven’t found anything yet.. i just want a calm refuge near some trees and nature, maybe the beach.. no smelly old carpets or busy street traffic noise.. a bath tub and cozy kitchen with an oven.. enough floor room to do yoga in my room.. near public transportation.. grocery and maybe a cafe nearby.. month to month or 6 month lease.. allows subletting and people staying overnight.. and if a roommate, someone i could be friends with.. and not too expensive! it’s not too much to ask for is it?
