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.

2. Dungeness Spit Lighthouse

Yesterday I hiked 5 miles (10 miles round trip!) to the Dungeness Spit Lighthouse. You can sign up to be a lighthouse keeper for a week which I thought might be kind of fun. It was a long walk, but the weather was perfect and the lighthouse was beautiful so it was worth it!

Vitamin D

I got a call from the doctor’s office and everything is normal except for my Vitamin D level. I’m not sure what it is, I will see the doctor on Monday, but I was told to start taking 5,000 IU a day! Which is a really large dose. The recommended allowance for adults under 70 is 600 IU which makes me wonder just how deficient I am. Might explain some of the symptoms.

falling in love

I’ve always heard people say that love happens when you least expect it and usually where you’re not looking.

I don’t know if this is love, but I do know that I have not felt this way in a very, very long time. I feel like I want to let down the walls that I built and let this person see me with all my flaws and imperfections and hope that they will still find me beautiful.
