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.

Read The Best of Me
by Nicholas Sparks. I love this book.

I just finished reading it this evening. I looove it. I love it. I’ve cried so many times. It’s a tearjerker, of course. Anyway, I was curious if there will be a movie version and googled it. There is. It’s coming this fall and I’m afraid to watch it even just the trailer. Somehow, I don’t want it to be tainted. The last romantic movie that I watched was Winter’s Tale with Colin Farrell. He was great. So while I was reading the book, Colin Farrell was on my default mode and pictured him playing the part of the lead role.
(Few Minutes after watching the trailer…) James Marsden plays Dawson Cole, who is also great. I’m down with that.

Participate in Postcrossing

I don’t remember who it was but it was somebody’s goal to Participate in Postcrossing. I didn’t know what Postcrossing was at that time so I checked it out and I liked it. And so, I signed up for postcrossing and it’s my second go-to website after 43T. I’ve sent 192 and received 194 postcards so far. I’ve been collecting postcards since then especially now that postcards are not that popular anymore and they are hard to find unless you buy them online. So thank you 43T for introducing Postcrossing to me.

  • Quiet time at a sandwich place by myself. Caught up with my postcrossing. Read a book.
  • Play time with nephew. He’s so silly I laughed so hard.
  • Magic’s and Trey Songz’s albums were on sale. It was $6.99 for Magic’s. Can’t beat that.

Then and Now

When I started 43T, I went cold turkey on any form of communication with my friends including my best friend since the year of forever. 43T became somewhat my comfort zone, my cocoon. Writing entries, reading other entries on similar issues, and comments helped me search my feelings and realized I wasn’t being fair. I’ve matured. Well, not really… maybe a little. But since then, I resolved my friendship with my bestie, stepped out of my bubble, gave friendship another go, and met new friends both here in 43T and there beyond 43T.

  • Woke up lousy and lazy this morning. I’m just happy that it’s a short week.
  • Although it’s a missed call, I got a call from an old friend. I called back and he didn’t pick up. So now we’re playing phone tags.
  • Co-workers got me a bday cake and it’s not even my bday. They found out that my bday was months ago and I never told them then. So I told them that today will be officially my work bday.

Just like most of the 43T-ers, if not all, I joined because of the obvious reason that I like to list things/goals. It helps me to visualize what I needed to do and motivates me to accomplish them just like most of you guys. But 43Things became more than just listing “things”. At first, I was hesitant to socialize. I thought I’m just here to set goals. Then, I started reading other’s lists and cheering them and they cheered back. What a wonderful site! A place where people support each other to accomplish their goals. I wasn’t expecting a cheering squad and join the squad but hey why not. Since then, I was hooked.

  • Dreadded to step out in the heat of the sun but it wasn’t that bad.
  • Attended a farewell dinner/party for our director at work. Everybody dressed up and looked handsome and beautiful. Thanked my director for everything he has done for me. He will be missed.
  • Finally transferred my photos from my camera to my computer.


Leave a note for a stranger in public
Two weeks ago...

Before landing at La Guardia Airport I left this note and stuck it in the magazine in the plane. I took a photo of the note, folded it into a paperplane, and meant to add the goal but I forgot. Oh well. I wrote down #69 quote from my “collect 1000 quotes that inspires me”. I hope that the same quote will inspire someone.

“ma timi-laai (dherei) maya garchhu”
“I love you (very much)”

Thank you Ranger.
He wrote This is using “timi” instead of “tapaai” (the equivalent of Spanish “tu” instead of “usted”), and in Nepali, all the r’s are tapped like in the Italian, “Maria”.
