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.

One lovely day is October...

...I got to experience something that I will not, can not forget, ever… I saw James, my favorite band, play live in Salt lake city. I saw the words, that I’ve heard so many times of CD, come out of Tim Booth’s mouth itself. Songs that get stuck in my head so often, the ones that I mutter and sing quietly to myself as I cross the street to compass, I was screaming into a microphone that Tim Booth’s hand, itself, was holding. I know can never look at a picture of Tim the same now, knowing that I have looked in to those eyes and they have looked into mine. And remembering that smile, that sweet honest, Beautiful smile of his I can’t help but smile myself.

Thinking of this night, which was a few nights ago, I have a hard time convincing myself that it was all real, not a dream, not my imagination. That I got there early and so a nice lady, bless her soul, gave me a VIP pass and helped me get into the sound check with some of James’s most ‘hardcore fans’ really happened! That I was only inches, some time only centimeters, away Tim Booth several times. In my memory, I keep seeing him siting the stage, feet hanging over the side singing “Sometimes” while all of us were bathed in blue light. Did all these wonderful things, and more, really happen? Did I really see him, only several feet away, sing and dancing?

The is just something extraordinary and extremely powerful when you can see a burning passion come to life right before your eyes. When you can see the man become completely controlled by the music, his music. Music running through his vain and possessing every adam cell in his entire body. And when the music becomes apart of you as well. So close to the speakers that the beat is vibrating your fib cage and through out your whole body.

I’m so thankful for the lives of each band member, who they knew/know what they did/do that makes them the people they are. I am so thankful for the inspiration they had/have to form this amazing band. I am so thankful that Mairi and Ellen introduced them into my live and I am so thankful they played in SLC!!! :)

I would do RIGHT NOW if I could! I know if it was on a school night and I had to drive several hours, I know my legs and feet were so tired and aching, I know my eyeliner was all across my face becuse of sweat and tears, I know that I got in a small car ancient on my way back to school in the mourning, now I have to deal the stress of calling people and insurance and so on. But it was all worth it.



fry an egg on the sidewalk
:(

On the last day of my summer job one of my dear friends and I really did bring eggs up to work and we knew right where we were going to try to fry them, a bright place that they sun seemed to always hit dead on. But the sun refused to come out and hide behind the could and our “frying pan” was cool and, at that time, worthless to us… Better luck next time?

James = a way of life

I still am in unbelief that I have James tickets in my bedroom on my dresser RIGHT NOW, waiting just waiting. They are no more then just a pieces of useless paper but in a few weeks its will be so much more. To me they will be priceless…

I’m not going to lie, every time I even think about this I get a little teary eyed. James is not just a band and they don’t just write and perform songs… they are a way of life… my way of life. Each song to me are not just words and sounds, they are memories, they are emotions,they are painting in the air,each note is a pondering thought, every word is a good, dear friend.

I know these friends, each song, on a personal level but I feel as if I have only written them letters or talked to them over the phone and I am finally go to seem them in their raw and for real form. Face to face. There are butterflies in my stomach and my face is blushing… I’m so excited!!!

p.s. Thanks to my Beautiful sisters, Ellen and Mairi for introducing me to James… it means a lot to me, as you can tell, I can’t wait to go to this concert w/ you two! :)
