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.

North By Northwest

I just saw North by Northwest and that makes 66 movies that I’ve seen so far on the AFI’s greatest american movies of all time list. And Overall I thought it was pretty good, it was interesting to see where the image of a guy running from a small plane close to a corn field originally came from. Next up Spartacus!

So today is the Day

Alright…I’ve lived with a messy room for long enough. And after I put my son to bed I plan on cleaning it. Everything from the carpet to the top bunk bed. I took a before picture to get me motivated.

grow my hair long

The only downside to growing my hair out long is that my four month old son loves to grab it in his little hands…otherwise i really like having long hair…it makes me feel younger. :)

permanently straighten my hair

I just got my hair permenently straightened last saturday and i totally think it was worth it. It feels so long and soft now compared to how it felt when i wore it curly. I got the japanese straightener called Yuko.

I started working my way through the most current list back in jan. and so far i’ve seen 43 movies. Thanks in large part to netflix.

The hardest movie i’ve had to sit through so far has been clockwork orange.
