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.

Sometimes...i get confused at who I am.

I’ll take some tests and find out!!!
What planet are you? PLUTO!

You are a dark, mysterious soul, full of magic and the secrets of the universe.
You can get the scoop on anything, but you keep your own secrets locked in your heart.
You love change and you use it to your advantage, whether by choice or chance.
You don’t like to compromise, to the point of being self-destructive with your pigheadedness.
Live life with love, and your deep powers will open the world to you.
And while Pluto may not be a planet any longer, that’s okay. You’re just special that way.

What mythical creature are you? DRAGON (lovely)
You are very charismatic and incredibly popular.
People are drawn to your energy, but you are a very difficult person to get to know.
You are very active. You are usually hard at work or play.

Travel Personality: The Sophisticate

You’re well educated and cultured, and the places you travel to reflect that.
You appreciate the best art, food, architecture, and local flavor.
A true traveler, you are destined to be multi-lingual and very worldly.

What Simpson are you? Krusty the Clown

You were the class clown as a kid, and you still entertain people.

From faking your own death to getting a wacky boob job, you’ll do anything for a laugh.

You will be remembered for: your face being everywhere, from cereal to home pregnancy tests

Warsaw ;)

My second Polish city this year and out of the two it’s my favourite…..Although Krakow was certainly entertaining and beautiful. 23 degrees in April! Fab :)

The most surprising city yet. i had been told by a couple of Polish friends not to bother with Warsaw! Thank God I don’t listen to advice.

Lots to do, beautiful parks, delicious food, beer and wine and all very inexpensive. A lot of historical sites to visit and the Polish community are much more friendly here than in Krakow :)

The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern

The Night Circus materialises in the middle of the night and opens it’s gates at 12am. Noone knows when or where it will appear nor for how long it will stay.

Loved this book…it was excellently visual, so much so that it was almost as if you could feel, smell, see, taste and experience all the things the characters could…there were quite a few really strong characters and a number sub plots within it which kept it moving quite quickly. An intricate storyline that was intriguing from the very beginning. Magical

Visit Jeronimos Monastry, Lisbon (read all 2 entries…)

The courtyard of the Monastery was beautiful, the light bouncing off the intricate detail of the pillars. The Chapel was one of the most beautiful i’ve ever seen with an amazing portrait of Saint Paula and her nuns.

Had great fun today!

I co-host a local radio programme on a Sunday and although it had been suggested that I do a show of my own i took these suggestions as something that was never going to actually happen and as a bit of a joke (afterall, who, in their right mind would seriously let me do a show of my own? I put my foot in it so often eg….i constantly say words that are not permitted on air…nipples, shit, balls, Holy Mother of Christ – that one was new to me too).

TODAY my co presenter and owner of the station walked in at 2.50 as i was settling into my 2nd hour by adjusting ear phones and looking over local topics and said:
“Right Scarlet you’re on your own from 3 o clock baby.”
After laughing hysterically for about 10 seconds I realised that YES he was indeed going to feck off and leave me on my own. Doing the desk, music, talking, requests …everything. I had about 10 minutes to panic and realise that i hadn’t listened to any of the things about working the desk over the last couple of months. However, it turned out well…i managed to only play 1 song in the following 2 hours that had swear words in it….yes. That was a lesson i learned while actually listening to the song as it was playing on air on a Sunday afternoon…..thankfully the listeners couldn’t hear the: “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh….Holy feckin crap he’s going to kill me!”
As it happened, it turned out to be great fun and a wonderful learning experience and I got great feed back so i now have my own show and am allowed to bring in guests and such. Whoo hoo!

Loved the Cathedral, the light shining on it in the evening time was just gorgeous.

Absolutely beautiful. Every street is like walking onto a film set or looking at a postcard. So much to see and i enjoyed this little city more than Brussels. Canal boat rides and a tour via horse and cart were the highlights….especially stopping round Minnewater, which was stunning.

About time too. Have meant to get here long before now. I loved round Grand Place (so ornate and colourful and with a house Victor Hugo lived in) and down round the old town streets.

Got to try a couple of glasses of beer…very tasty and extremely strong.
