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.

win my disability case
I am stuck in SSI DIS HELL

I tell you – did the two appeals – first hearing in front of the judge was scheduled for April 2007 – the judge refused to see me -moved to GA case transferred to the Atlanta office. Waited 4 months for hearing date get it and then they canceled it. Two more months I finally had my hearing – got turned down – the Judge ignored most of my evidence – in his letter of why he turned me down – he left out so many things. My attorney filed an appeal to the three judges in the circuit court in VA. Attorney’s usual brief is only 3-4 pages long -mine is 24! Now I am waiting to see if they will do one of three things ,,,
1. just overturn the first judges ruling and let me start my ssi dis.
2. Turn me down flat
3. send the case back to the first judge and have me have another hearing.

I had my first class tonight

it was really, really good. There are about 15 of us and we all had a blast. The teacher was imppressed with all of us as when we put moves together to make a little dance – she threw things in at us and we all kept up and did the moves correctly.

I kinda wish the class was more than only once a week. LOL

Finally actually taking a class

That’s right! I am signing up for a continuing education class that starts the fourth of next month… It is a 6 week course and it will be good to have someone let me know if my posture is wrong. Trying to learn from DVDs is a bit difficult in that respect. They can’t tell you if you are doing it correctly or not. LOL

I am also hoping the teacher in Atlanta will be able to take me in March. She has a lot going on right now and doesn’t usually take beginners so I am hoping this class and maybe the next one at the college will make me not so much a beginner anymore. :-)


Play City of Heroes more than I Have been (read all 2 entries…)
I am givign up on this one for now

I have cancelled my City Of Hereos account for now. I have too much in my real life going on and I cannot give enough time to the game to validate the expense.

I may go back in a few months once things settle down or my settlement comes in.

But for now… my daughter gets first priortiy on my computer as she is learning so much and when I play that game I just waste so much time. LOL

my poor camera

is still sitting here on my desk… the view screen doesn’t work… so you can’t see your photos after you take them. And my poor Tamron 300 zoom/macro is still broken too. It made a funky clunk sound when I tried to take it off macro a few months ago, now something is rattleing around in it and it won’t AF, or even turn at all even in manual mode.

There are a few people I want to mark as friends

and I want to find out if there is a way to do that on 43 things. People who have some of the same goals I do or who I know at other websites or online games. Is there a way to do that here?

Loose 80 pounds----I am on my WAY (read all 3 entries…)
My last weigh in was last week

I am now 226.5! 21 and a half pounds gone! The even bestest thing is no one even thinks I weigh 200 pounds let alone as much as I do. I carry it well. SO I am even looking better, feeling better (now that my New Year Flu is over) and I can get back to Belly Dancing! It really is a great way to exercise and it is totally FUN!

Buy a new computer
Mine is 5 years old now

It doesn’t have the power I need anymiore. I do a lot of photo editing in my digital darkroom and I also do graphics not to mention the online game I play.

Not that I have much time for any of that recently as my 3 3/4 year old seems to have taken over my machine.

My Private Class has been postponed until the middle of January

BUT that is ok, I still have my Belly Twins DVDs and the Dolphina one that doesn’t really teach me much but I did find on Fit TV a show called “Shimmy” and I have learned a lot from that one. In fact I just ordered season one!

I have made an outfit and I have also purchased some outfits on line. I am taking this so seriously. I really want to learn how to do this and there are so many different kinds of belly dance, even though they incorporate some of the same moves… costumes and things vary.

Thanks to Dancing several times a week and really watching what I eat, I have lost 18 pounds so far. :-) An added benifit! I feel better about myself and actually feel beautiful.

Belly Dancing!

Well in my area there aren’t any teachers so I found a website that listed all the teachers in Georgia. I emailed over 40 of them and only two responded - one said that there was no way in hades that they would help me…. and the other is going to give me lessons once a month – I will have to drive over an hour one way to get there, but I am going to do it!!!

In fact I met her this past Sunday. She and her students had a Belly Dancing party and I was invited. I brought the costume I have started to make and they thought it was really great! I had a blast and look forward to meeting the ladies again.

They did a really neat dance while holding candles in their hands. All the demonstrations were so beautiful.

I am looking for the three DVDs by the Belly Twins as the Dolphina Video really doesn’t teach belly dancing…. it is more of a workout video… so that is one of my Belly Dancing Goals… the next is to get caught up to the teacher’s other students so I can actually be part of a class and learn some routines.
