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.

Now I am reading Rock My Soul: Black people and Self-Esteem. Just like all of her works it is very insightful.
I have always wanted to learn how to crochet. I plan to research different styles and try it in 2009.
The next adinkra symbol I want is the Sankofa symbol. Hopefully this summer I will finally get it.
I love warm tones! Painted the rooms upstairs a warm earthy tone! The color I choose is very soothing. The color goes very nice with the hardwood floors.
I am in the process of restoring the hardwood floors upstairs. All of my floors in my house are hardwood floors. The floors upstairs where covered with carpet. I pulled up the carpets and got rid of them. Now I am in the process of repairing and refinishing the floors.
I did some painting in the bathroom two weeks ago. I love how it turned out. Next I want to pull up the bathroom floor and have some tile work done.

Went to my first reggae fesitival and really enjoyed it! I meet some really cool people, listened to some gret music, and got some beautiful jewerly!

The Color Purple was incredible!! I definitely want to see another broadway play in the future!
The digital camera I have now is really acting up, and plus I have grown really bored with it. I have my eye on a high end camera. It is expensive so I have to really save up for it.
Two more days left until I go see “The Color Purple”!!
I was seriously addicted to soda. After a very painful experience do to drinking soda, I finally stopped my addiction three months ago. I have no desire to ever drink a soda again.
I can not imagine not doing yoga now! It is so good for me!!
