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.

I’ve read it at least once a day for the last 6 days!



:]

I’ve been inspired and I’m back to reading the Bible again. I’m not doing any sort of order or study or even really keeping track, but it’ll just be good to get back into reading it again.

I can’t remember the last time I just sat down and read. I want to tonight. This week will heed improvements on this one.



:]

I’m currently reading a book that Christina lent me called Redeeming Love and it is amazing and it refers to the Book of Hosea and I’m really inspired to go read that now.

I’ve really been sucking at this goal lately but I hope to pick it up again right now.



:]

I have recently fallen in love with PROVERBS!



:]

I’m so inspired right now!
I went up to church after school on Friday to talk with my youth director ladayz Brenda and Deanna and then we started talking about the Old Testament and about all these really cool stories that I didn’t even know existed and I’m so excited to start reading with focus! WEEEE! It’s so cool to just like talk about stuff like that and have epiphanies and feel your own understanding of the world and other religions grow.
yayayayya!

I had hoped to have this completed by 2008, but unfortunately it is not completed.

I need to set out a game plan for this one.
My problem is that at night I just flip open my Bible and read whatever it goes to, but for some reason I always end up in Ezekiel or some random Old Testament book and the Old Testament makes me sleepy. I need to be more focused and have a better plan with this goal. Whenever I end up in the Old Testament I just say nawww and flip over to Psalms and then go to bed. I need to set aside some time for this when I am not drowsy. Sometimes I read my mini purse Bible at school when people are pissing me off big time, but I usually just go to the gospels and I’ve already read those, but it is good to read them again because THEY SO GOOD. anyways…

New Years Resolution 2008: Finish da Bible



:]

I have really been sucking at this lately.
At night I flip open the Bible on my bed and read whatever I flip to, but for some reason I keep coming up on Ezekiel and, athough this is bad, the Old Testament and I still don’t really hang out much… so… instead of reading what I flip to I just go to Psalms and read one of them each night.

When 2008 starts I’m going to set up a plan so I will finish this by the end of next year or hopefully sooner.

My mini-purse Bible has come in handy though. When people are ticking me off in class by talking about stupid things, swearing, making fun of people, etc. I just get it out of my purse and read anything in it to keep from thinking angry things at them. It (usually) works! :]

Also I have been keeping one of my Bibles on the passenger seat of my car and lately I have been driving to play practice, which is kinda far-ish, and I get there early and sit in my car and read before I go in. That’s really peaceful and fun woo!

I have been slacking major, but I just finished reading a book about faith and I am currently reading a book by St. Thomas Aquinas. Still, I understand it is not the same. I will work on this and I need to allot more time for this as I have been really busy lately.



:]

So cool! I read through most of Tobit and all of Matthew between Tuesday and Wednesday and then the reading at church was from Matthew so I was thrilled to understand the context of the passage and not just the little excerpt they had. I skipped to Acts because some one told me they enjoyed that book and I am currently enjoying it as well. Hoorah!

Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.
Matthew 12:34
