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.

Less than three years be done. To make the most of my 20’s, I need to travel more, learn languages, and maybe, just maybe, move out of L.A.
I like in here, but after being here for almost a decade, I feel like it is time for me to move to a different place.
The things I posted on my first entry are still wants; now I need to get to what I need to do in order to achieve all that.

  • Partied in Vegas (pool party, XS, Tryst) and got a bunch of promoters’ contact for next time :)
  • Had my first friends with benefits (and already ended it simply because the guy isn’t all I wanted but no regrets!)
  • Looking stunning everyday, turning heads on campus :)

My self esteem has been improving as the years pass. I will be marrying myself by the time I am 30!

Going home

I am seriously thinking about leaving the USA, therefore, I have to do all the things I want to do in this country before moving back home.
I want to go to NYC again but this time during Winter and I want to visit Santa Cruz and Hawaii. I think I may travel somewhere this month.
I also want to learn French and improve my Spanish. There are lots of things to do and I have time for all that.

Most important of all, I need to get published. Or else, I am not leaving.

traveling again!

Going to NYC this Wednesday!
Hopefully it won’t be the last place I’ll visit this year!

doing it...

Finally! I booked flight and hotel to go to Miami Beach next month! I haven’t traveled in 3 years and this will sure be fun! The greatest thing about it is that I’m going by myself and I don’t know anyone there! I am excited!
I also plan to go to NYC but I am waiting for my sister to rent an apt to save $$$. I want to drive up to Santa Cruz but I am not sure if I should go this month or the next one.

Hopefully I will go to NYC and Santa Cruz next month.

Soo...there's another "goal"

out here on 43T called “list 30 things I want to do before I turn 30…and DO them!”
Instead of adding that extra goal which, in my opinion, it’s a stupid idea specially when both goals mean the same thing, I was thinking in writing a list of what I want to do before my 30th birthday and really do them, not just put this list up and say “I hope I can get all this done”

Realistic goals. Cool things. Not mundane achievements as “visit Vegas”.

5 years to go

Reflecting on my 20’s I can say that I did have fun; yes I did.
I traveled, learned yoga, improved my English and Spanish, bought a car, got in debt (that isn’t good but at least I now know that this mistake shouldn’t happen ever again), paid off my debt, took several classes, discovered what I want to do with my life, dated but…
There’s more I want to do. I want to travel more, I want to learn languages, I want to have friends, I want to become a famous published writer, I want to have a nonprofit animal rescue.
I want I want I want.
I will make the most of my 20’s.
This goal won’t be updated often because I already have other goals on which I vent; this one I’ll post only my successes ;)
