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.

every goal needs a plan

and the plan for this goal is to first sort out all the requirements for an EPEC, then get an EPEC, then while waiting for the EPEC, apply for jobs there already. of course, that goes without saying that i have to do my best in my current job and continue praying that God grants me a job there soon.

where and how to start

i don’t know how to start with this goal because i still have those damn debts to pay. i promise, i’m going to stash a huge chunk of my 13th month pay and then start stashing at least $200 a month after. i’ll cross out this goal as soon as i stash $1200 away.

offer letter

so two weeks ago, i got an offer for a place in the fashion management program at lasalle. however, due to my “work” commitment(damn bond), i decided to defer enrollment to august 2008. i sent the formal request to defer my enrollment today and i feel a little bad that i have to stay in this job for six more months. boohoo. oh well, i should think of this as a blessing in disguise instead—-a chance to save more money for the school next year! =)

severity 2 resource allocation problem

So I have enough money to actually completely pay off one of my cards, but if I do that, I will only pay minimum on the other card and I want to pay at least 1/6 on that. if i completely pay off the first card, i can focus my the rest of my resources in paying the second one. however, i don’t want the finance charges to mount on card 2. decisions, decisions. help, anyone?

paycheck no.1

So today I got my paycheck and I paid the remaining balance of my Globe bill. Ouch is all I can say. On Monday, I’m paying the BPI bill. =( Boohoo. I have to stay focused. My lenten sacrifice is not to shop next week. Wish me luck because I want new sandals, a bikini, a book, and lingerie. Cry, cry, cry. Must exercise self-control. 3 more pay weeks, and I will be free.

grow my hair long (read all 5 entries…)
Growing pains

I’ve never had long hair. The longest I’ve had is probably my hair’s length now. My last haircut was in December, before going tto Singapore. I want to go from super short to super long—-like 24 inches of hair! Haha. I don’t know how I’m gonna survive until August without getting a haircut. Split ends are the enemy!!! And so is summer weather here in Manila. Bah, I will do this, I just need to invest in good hair products and be disciplined about it. Can’t wait to have long, strong, healthy hair! Haha.

28 days

I’ve got 28 days till Boracay, meaning 28 days to get washbord abs, long lean arms and be really fit. Starting is the hardest part, I’m telling you. They say a habit is formed in 21 days…so I’ve got to get a move on.

Learn to dance Argentine tango (read all 13 entries…)

My boyfriend dances the Argentine tango and last February, he brought me to a millonga. I was only supposed to take pictures of him dancing, but then all these guys came over and asked me for a dance. Since it’s very rude to decline a dance, I danced with them and discovered just how intimate and sexy this dance is! Plus, the shoes are gorgeous! I really want to learn now so I can dance with more confidence! Hopefully, by next year, I’ll be good enough. And then my boyfriend and I can take a month-long holiday to Buenos Aires and just dance!
