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.

get nose pierced

YARR! I have actually gotten it pierced and repierced a few times now. But I think this time is a keeper. I finally got the hoop instead of the stud and my body therefore did not reject it. Then I got the wee tiny hoop, which is the one I’ve wanted all along. So, all is well on this. Got my nips pierced too, as a matter of fact. So, I’m piercing girl! lol. Piercing girl-light, I should say.

Save up $600 to pay off FINAL car ticket from CA
The 7 year Saga is OVER

Thanks to the blessings of abundance from the Universe I was finally able to pay the $1500ish that I owed in order to get my license back. Now I just have to take the tests here in Oregon and I’ll be driving the world again! RAWR.

Experience a healthy romantic relationship

Love conquers all. I can officially say that I have worked my damnedest to have a healthy relationship with my wonderful lady. It’s challenging and it takes a lot of time and effort, communication and even painstaking attention to details, but it’s worth it to have someone in my life who I know loves me ultimately and unconditionally. She has been a beautiful addition to my life from the moment she danced herself in. :)
