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.

I'm not so sure...

After my last entry on this goal, I don’t think I’ll be able to graduate in May. None of the classes I need line up nicely with each other. It’s so frustrating. Not to mention I have my portfolio and PEP to put together still…

I’m really starting to stress a bit. But… /sigh

I’m sure… I’ll get it worked out. I hope.



Reveal 43 random facts about myself (read all 22 entries…)
Mmmmm...

22. I’m a secret fan of My Little Pony. Oh my gosh, I can’t help it. D: I think it’s cute! And there really are some good lessons in it!

23. Rarity is my favorite pony. xD

24. I hate mint. But I’m okay with some toothpastes and Andes’ mints.

25. I would eventually like to pierce my ears, but am not a fan of pain.

26. Similarly, I’d like a tattoo or two.

27. I would also like to maybe get some streaks of this nice dark/navy-ish blue color in my hair. It’s such a pretty blue!

28. Cats make me super nervous. No idea why, as we used to have quite a few.

29. Once I become obsessed/interested in something, I try to incorporate it into most things in my life.

30. I like the smell of campfires and freshly mown grass.

31. I dislike any and all bugs. But earthworms are the shit.

32. I don’t care for using tissues. They usually make my nose plugged worse or make me sneeze because of the little fuzzies.

33. If I could have one super power, I’d be torn between flying and invisibility.

34. When I’m alone in the car and singing along with my music, I like to think that sometimes I don’t sound half bad.

35. Sometimes I’ll pretend I know what I’m going to do with my life. And it still looks dreary.

36. I’d like to eventually try champagne, despite my stance on alcohol.

37. Those old timely photos are neat when it’s not you in them. Otherwise I just find them cheesey as heck.

38. I wish I knew more martial arts.

39. Sometimes I want to contact Netflix and be all like, “I know you’re relatively inexpensive, but I’m still paying for you. Why is it you never work on my consoles well over half the time?”

40. Once 43T is gone, I’ll probably have much more limited internet use. It’s already started. I’ll miss this site… Even though I haven’t been here long.

41. I never wanna grow up, but I realize it’s not an option.

42. I’ve learned a lot in my short life. Much of it in the past couple years is how to cheat the system (law, school, etc.).

43. I want a Venus flytrap. You can’t deny that those things are wicked cool.

8. Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy

Nintendo 3DS
E10+ for mild violence and use of alcohol

Love this series so much. I’m sad that this leg of the adventure is over, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I love puzzle games, and this series is my favorite. The story is magnificent (so many plot twists in this last one!), and the music for these games is also among my top favorites.

Sadly I’m just tiddling around at work, otherwise I’d write more.
I cannot express how much I really enjoy these games. Can’t wait for the next installment. :D

7. Max: The Curse of Brotherhood

Xbox One
E10+ for… Uh, I forget what. Some mild swearing and cartoony violence? Nothing excessive.

My rating 7/10

Max has a younger brother that, unsurprisingly, can be a little annoying. So he finds a magic spell that gets rid of him, but ends up racing after his brother to save him from an evil man hell-bent on taking his brother’s body. A new world filled with baddies and magic awaits Max on his quest to save his little brother.

A simpler side-scroller focused on using a magic marker to think of creative ways to move forward. Some of the puzzles were quite tricky!

Being more of a kids game, the themes were young and simple, but the bond of two siblings is still a deep and motivating idea.

It was short, but enjoyable. It was fun being under pressure of thinking and speed. A sweet story and fun experience. :D

6. Alice: Madness Returns

Played on PS3.
M-rated for blood, swearing, etc.

My rating: 8/10

A very dark and twisted take on Wonderland and Alice. Alice blames herself for the death of her family in a house fire, but was it really her fault?

This game was very demented and creepy and had me questioning a lot, but I loved it. I figured out the ‘mystery’ before the end (which made me kinda proud—I can never manage it on Layton…), and tried to collect all the bonus things… Which is hard!

I liked the London sequences as much as the Wonderland ones, which surprised me. The creators did an awesome job making their own take on these places!

Alice’s outfits were neat, the weapons were cool, and I really liked the music!

Some parts were extremely hard to get through, however. Almost ridiculously so. I got frustrated a LOT with this game… Not to mention parts where it would glitch. Very annoying. Especially at parts where you have to be quick!

Overall I loved it, though. :)



Save 43Things entries
After using the provided option from 43T...

I’m glad that the entries are backed up, but…

No pictures? Comments? Cheers? :(

I thank them all the same for giving us that option, though.

I’ll still have to give this Httrack a try, though… Here’s hoping 43T is still up by the time I have time to do it.

Happy 4th of July! To those who celebrate/care, anyway. Otherwise, I just hope you have a good one. :)

Awesome. Harder than previous installments, but still lots of fun. Especially with family.

5. Ryse: Son of Rome – XBox One

Challenging. Great story. Gory, but to me that’s not bad. Died a loooot. But still very fun!

Will maybe add more to this later. Not in the mood to type that long stuff.

Short version:
Very much enjoyed it. Sad at lack of ‘plot.’ Mario games are very different when not side scrolly, but still much fun. Especially with more than just yourself. :) Co-op is fun.

2. The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD

Platform: Wii U

ESRB: E10+
Animated Blood, Fantasy Violence

Difficulty: Medium-Hard

Replay Value: High

Average Rating: 9.6/10

My Rating: 10/10

Description:“The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker makes its glorious return on the Wii U console with gorgeous HD graphics and enhanced game features. In this timeless classic with a unique and colorful “toon-shaded” art style, players guide Link as he sets out on the massive Great Sea to find his kidnapped sister. Players will sail the seas in search of lost islands, fight fearsome enemies, take on mighty bosses and seek out the legendary Triforce. “

I started this game so long ago on the GameCube. Many were against the toon style at first, but I didn’t think much of it other than ‘adorable.’ I played the crap out of it so I could get everything, and in the end… I loved it so much I couldn’t fight the final boss and complete it fully.

So now in the HD version, which by the way is sooo pretty in all it’s revamped glory, I did it all again, and then some, but I fought Ganondorf in that very last fight this time.

I love the Zelda series, and I am pretty confident that Wind Waker is my favorite of all of them. The HD remake is a wonderful addition.

The game is challenging but fun and exciting, the story is great and builds on the series’ timeline, and while this one is a little less ‘adult’ than other Zelda titles, its view of the world in a young Link’s eyes is refreshing. I feel invigorated and young again when I play this. Not that I’m old, I guess, but it definitely brings back memories from the first time, all those years ago. :)

This game is challenging! It was mainly in the side quests (which, while optional, I always enjoy doing), but it just adds to the experience; I’m never bored and don’t want to stop playing. In fact, I started over again as soon as I finished this afternoon. ;)

I always have trouble picking a favorite of anything, but Wind Waker is definitely a top… three? Five, maybe, at most. I love it to pieces.

Thanks much for the invite!

I’m very sad about losing the site. :( Darn my friend for getting me attached…

I like the idea of a forum. :) Hopefully this works out well!

Just in case I am (or even if I’m not), I added one extra. :3

I wanted to finish at least one more goal before ‘the end.’ I’ve thought about these for the last few days. It was hard. Some may even be double ups (though I tried to double check). But these are all things I enjoy.

Except, possibly, porn. We’ll never know.

Whaaaaat?

Shouldn’t they send us an email or something? Or did they and I just missed the list? 3;

Either way… Not happy. At all.

walk to Rivendell (read all 7 entries…)
S'more~

Since last time I’ve walked thirteen miles… which isn’t much considering how long it’s been. (January? Sheesh.)

It was super nice recently, so I did some walking, but the last week now has been cool and rainy and windy. I love the rain, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not the greatest walking weather. Especially when there’s wind to accompany it…

Is that Rivendell I see? Noooo…

434 – 13 = 421 miles more!

1. Scribblenauts Unlimited

Platform: Wii U

ESRB: E10+
Cartoon Violence, Comic Mischief

Difficulty: Easy-Medium

Replay Value: Medium-Low

Average Rating: 9.2/10

My Rating: 8/10

Description:“Scribblenauts, the best-selling, award-winning puzzle game franchise that challenged players to imagine anything and bring it to life, is back with Scribblenauts Unlimited for the Wii U, featuring more expansive gameplay and setting no limits on how the player uses his or her imagination within the game. Players now have the ability to create their own original objects, assign unique properties, and share them with other players online – to be used in game or further modified as they like! And for the first time, learn the backstory about Maxwell’s parents, his twin sister Lily, and how he got his magical notepad.”

I’ve messed around a bit with the iOS version of Scribblenauts, and I really enjoy it. It makes me use my brain to come up with unique objects to create to solve puzzles, as well as adding more challenge by using adjectives. Unlimited was very much the same.

There’s a lot of ‘levels’ for players to go to, and each level has multiple puzzles to solve based on different themes, from an Indiana Jones-esque area to a haunted house. While it is not required to beat every last one of them to complete the storyline for the game… Y’know, I just had to. ;)

I gave it the difficulty rating I did because the game is geared toward a younger audience. In spite of that, however, there were some puzzles that I had trouble with! I had to consult with my brother to figure out what the solution could possibly be. I’ve got a pretty good vocabulary, but this game really challenged it. :) Yay for brain power!

Overall the game was really fun, especially when my brother was watching/helping. It’s a good game to play with others. Unfortunately due to the puzzles being the same, once you solve it, it’s solved. If left alone for awhile, you could certainly play it again, but otherwise replay is pretty low.

I’m smiling, but on the inside I’m slowly dying of boredom and lack of human contact.

Since when did summer vacation become so boring?
