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.

Not bioinformatics

Technically speaking it was post-genomics biosciences. But close enough :)

All taught courses over

All taught courses are over for the MRes… second semester was far better than the first one. Still working but things seem to be better now. I really had some difficult months. But now It is good to have some certainty.

Now I am here

Just at the very beginning.


Just got the ATAS authorization, also this week i got a call from AUO. Its strange, but i keep going. Four years is a lot of time.

Great Thursday.

Last Thursday I got the confirmation from Emma, I got a place for the PhD at U. of Bath. Genomics.


Yesterday I submitted my first draft for my application to get a PhD degree at University of Bath, UK. Next week I will be applying for an ORS scholarship. Things have been moving very fast this weeks.

I hardly remember when I was doing my TOEFL exam. I was so afraid I will not pass with the minimum points required.

Now I have a one life time opportunity… this surely will change my future.

Thanks PhD AUO for all her support.


Today I have found a term I want to remember. Some time ago, when I first read Contact by Carl Sagan I found the idea of stellar engineering. I want to be a life architect, someone who can project life, make visions of creation take form.
Life is sort of a turbulence in the universe. So complex, so unpredictable, sometimes even seems chaotic, but by the end it is just another way of moving things inside this beautiful space. It is just flow.

ldklf has gotten 4 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
