I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner.
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 don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner.
Well i’ve got a lovely warm feeling in my heart, my plans for the future, and the chance to sit here and enjoy the sunrise…
I suppose some of us are cave dwellers, some of us live in houses, some of us like to be loose footed.
The Cayman Islands
The North Pole
Oh yes, hehe, have to.
Assume that a deviation from expected behavior from what occurs in the long term, Will be corrected in the short term.
For example, if a fair coin is tossed repeatedly and tails comes up a larger number of times than is expected, a gambler may incorrectly believe that this means that heads is more likely in future tosses
They often feel they are DUE for a win.
This is a case where how the world is observed, is not how the world just is. Probability and chance are independent of previous occurrences.
We know that, in the case of fliping a fair coin 21 times, the odds of having 21 heads is 1 in a little over 2 million. Unfortunately the probability of flipping a head after having already flipped 20 heads in a row is simply 1 in 2.
The probability of 20 heads and 1 tail are the same as the chances of 20 heads and 1 head.

I’ve announced to a few select people my intentions to move farther west. Towards Los Angeles California.
With mixed reactions.
I think it will be good.
I even told my job.
Kind of struggling to find one for yesterday.
I waited in line a line outside a door. Not knowing what was I was waiting for on the other side of the door. I waited for a while. And playfully danced back and forth across trying to figure out what I was waiting for, and keeping myself from finding out.
Everyone else was quite eager though. And eventually I wandered off. Different wavelength I get.
Unfortunately, this wasn’t at a new place. It was a quite old place. An old Icehouse. Where you could buy trucked in ice in the time before refrigeration. Now they have various mixed events there, progressive art showings. It’s mostly cement.
Today I worked my first live video mix. At the Biltmore hotel in Scottsdale, which I have never been to before.
It was a bunch-of-rich-geeks-giving-each-other-geeky-awards and the-managers-who-manage-them ceremony.
I got to wear a headset. Which was awesome, because everyone on my channel. Was hilarious.
I am invited to speak to a class about documentary film making next week. About Documentary Production and Post-Production. That will be intense, hopefully fun. If they want to hear about it. Obviously. I do very well one on one. Large groups are intimidating.
today I’m using 43 things from my mobile device for the firs time.
I’m in the studio.
The more I use my device the more in tune with that device I become.
My 41 things participation has been stagnant. So I forgot to declare this completed when It was. It really only took barely 3 weeks for my passport to arrive on my doorstep. (contrary to everything I have been told about it taking 6-10 weeks)
I don’t have any travel plans outside of the country, yet. I should make a that a goal too.
My loan deferment application was approved. I’m still going to gain interest in my unsubsidized loans unfortunately. But as I come into money I can still make payments during deferment. I just wont be held accountable to a gregariously large amount of money every month.
I think I gave it a good shot. But I’m just not established enough financially to complete this goal just yet.
So, I’m attempting to get a deferment. :(
I made a payment of $312.76
I was in a car accident and am way more broke than usual. So I made the minimum payment I could, which took away from all the extra I had been putting into payments up until now. Fuck.
Total Amount outstanding $35,119.27
So apparently you can’t really litter box train them.
You can only litter train animals that naturally hide their poop.
Or so I’m told.
This is an obstacle.
There is a costume party this weekend.
But the theme is “villians”
I’m thinking bubble guns rather than gnomes.
And I really haven’t been drinking lately. Maybe I’ve just been too busy with other things.
And I didn’t really realize my sobriety till after the fact.
Or really just anyone who will have interesting things to post on twitter.
Or find them if they are already on.
Cause I like the concept. But it really doesn’t hold if I’m not linked to anyone who uses it. Lame.
I can get a device that will allow my house plants to twitter me when they need to be watered. How cool is that?
