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.

Como pasan las cosas.

Ayer escribió Berenice, no sé que pensar de eso. Mucha de mi fé en los demás se ha ido muriendo con los años. Es tal vez la cosa que más extraño de cuando era niño.

Ayer estaba molesto, creo que con Yuli, no sé bien, tal vez conmigo mismo, tal vez un berrinche. Pero estando sólo con ella sentí algo, sentí que me hacía falta y que la amaba. Que realmente la amaba. Más que cualquier palabra que le hubiera dicho. Realmente la necesito.

Quiero tiempo lejos de Berenice A. El tiempo que he estado lejos me ha ayudado a valorar a Yuli, a quererla, a darme un lugar, a valorarme, a encontrar cosas que perdí. Con Berenice hay asuntos pendientes, yo lo sé, pero como no vi una solución posible mejor los escondí… al cajón del olvido con otras tantas cosas que me han herido. No quiero cometer el error que Berenice A. cometió. Es cierto que la quise, y que la esperé mucho tiempo. Que eso me amargó el corazón. Si dejo de pensar en Yuli hoy para dedicarle tiempo a Berenice sería un gran error, algo de lo que luego me voy a arrepentir. Voy a darme el fin de semana para encontrar la manera de contestar amablemente que no es el momento. Al menos no lo es para mí. Algo dentro de mí se rompió con Berenice A. De esas cosas que no son fáciles de reparar, y que además necesitan energias para repararse, energía que en este momento pienso deberían de enfocarse en Yuli y no en alguien más. No quiero que Berenice sea mi Orlando, Osvaldo o como se llame. No quiero dañar algo valioso por algo que ya fue muy lastimado.

Amo a Yuliana, ha sido una niña muy especial y quiero ver hasta donde puede llegar mi felicidad con ella. Mi solución es sencilla, punto a favor, es basada en el sentido común, otro punto a favor, y además incluye no sólo a mí cabeza sino también a mi corazón, punto más. Debo de valorar lo que tengo. Debo darme el tiempo y el espacio justos, ser inteligente y buena persona. Ser leal a las cosas que amo y que creo. Integro.

Weekend at tlaxcala

Get a PhD degree in bioinformatics (read all 7 entries…)

Today I have found a term I want to remember. Some time ago, when I first read Contact by Carl Sagan I found the idea of stellar engineering. I want to be a life architect, someone who can project life, make visions of creation take form.
Life is sort of a turbulence in the universe. So complex, so unpredictable, sometimes even seems chaotic, but by the end it is just another way of moving things inside this beautiful space. It is just flow.

It is strange how she got into my life. But is fantastic how things have changed since we meet. Yesterday we turned two months of being together. She is very special. I only hope someday I will leave too many things behind.

First time.

Two week ago was my first presentation. It was nice. Full of funny errors and things like that. But at least the first time playing with 9 other violins, it sounded pretty good.

Done with the exam. An interesting experience. Just don’t know if I will pass. Maybe it doesn’t matter at all. It is just something I wish, the second bachelor. The knowledge. The people. And maybe the most important, something to dream about in this uneasy present.
