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.

lose 100 pounds in 100 days
I totally want to do this

I have lose weight before and put it back on. I have decided I totally need to do this again and start on track. I like the goal of losing 100 pounds in 100 days that at least gives me a goal to look forward to.

I have started back on sparkpeople to keep track of my intake and calories burn. I also started back journal writing to keep track of how I eat because I noticed I eat for comfty and sadness and I need to stop that. Best of luck to everyone:)

Crochet more

I find myself crocheting daily first as a stress relief then a hobby, still hobby but, also business to.
I love to crochet. I am hoping to one day write my own patterns. I do design a lot of the things I make but, yet to write the patterns as I go.

crochet a hat
Hats My Favorite

I have to say hats is my favorite to do. Mainly the newsboy caps.

learn to crochet
Totally A Stress Relief

I started crocheting about 3 years ago after having my last daughter. I took on crocheting because I always liked it but, never could find someone to teach me so books and the net became my teacher. I started it as a stress relief and still loving it to this day. It wasn’t bad or hard at all. I just started with learning all my basic stitches and worked from there. I started off by making squares, scarfs, blankets and worked my way up to making wearables like tank tops, sweaters, shirts, hats, and more.

So I say it is totally worth it to those that want to try something new and look at your work and say OOOO I have done it.

I like that my work is unique and different. So it is worth it well to me.

You can find a lot of my crochet and sewing work on my blog

Learn to knit

I finally taught myself how to knit from books, and the net. I already know how to crochet so me learning to knit came simply since I had to work with the tension of the yarn the same way. It is ok but, totally not my thang. It takes more time to me due that I can fly though my crochet projects quick. But, I aint going to give up I will totally try to work with knitting a little more but, I aint going to push it.:)

sell on eBay (read all 2 entries…)

I sell on ebay every now and then to make a little extra money it is ok. I mainly sell my books, yarn or video games that I don’t want anymore.

finish my latch hook rug

I am well was doing a latch hook rug for my bathroom and yet to finish it because its so timing into latch hooking I will go back to it then stop then back then stop but, Will surely have to finish it up soon.

take a sewing class
I know how to sew

I just want to take up a sewing class to advice my sewing. I am self taught and I sew purses, backpacks, totes, my girls outfits like tank tops, skirts and shirts but, I want to take a sewing class just to advice my sewing to make sure everything I am doing right is really write. I’m that type that like to work around the hard stuff and go for the easy stuff.

Make a purse.
Love purses

When I first started sewing I started by making purses and have been every since love making purses. :)

Beat my depression
Trying to beat depression

Been trying to beat depression for so long it’s hard at times but, I am still here at least for now. I was just writing in my journal about everything that comes to my mind I realize I push everyone away friends, family even my kids at times. When I am out in public I put on a happy smile but, deep down I am crying and screaming. I think so much about death it is crazy. I lay in the bed thinking about it way to much. When I watch tv and see someone on a show killing them self I think to myself well they not suffering anymore crazy huh? Seeing my therapist and taking all these pills just not kicking it at all. Dr trying to put in my the hossy due to me overdosing on my anti-depression pills. But, I am still here and I went back to journal writing getting everything off my mind onto paper at the times I think so negative. After writing for a few days I realize why I stop journal writing because my journals all have negative thoughts nothing good to say about myself but, I am still learning to beat this depression.

Worth Doing

Love crocheting been crocheting for now a little over a year self taught it became easy to me. Found websites to help me and there I went. I am more of making my own things not a pro in reading patterns but, Love to crochet have been selling a lot of my things so there you have it worth doing if you want to do it.
