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.

become 'serious' about being vegetarian (read all 2 entries…)

i usually have no problem. it’s not even an effort, or drastic change in my diet, as i’m not a big meat taste fan.

until i come home to a-town for the holidays. and the word ‘vegetarian’ is like blasphemy to my parents.

mother darling will deliberately cook roast beef, or lamb curry, and then make my feel all guilty by emphasizing how long she took slaving over a hot stove to make this…

dad thinks it’s completely weird. and the boys just sit there laughing their butts off as i battle it out, once again, in the me vs them ‘war of no meat’.

to be continued..

the catalpa.

i just watched the most amazing story on the abc.

skip this paragraph if you want to avoid details, but six irish revolutionaries were convicted of treason against the british queen & sent as convicticts to one of the worlds most notorious jails on the west coast of australia. (fremantle, which is sorta where i live).:)
anyway members of the same movement who exiled to america began to devise a ten year long plan to breakout these men, their friends, from one of the most isolated prisons on earth, in a country no one has ever been to, from the other side of the world. and this is in the 1800’s mind you. and i dunno, it was just an genuinely amazing. it’s like prison break, but it actually happened.

its just got me thinking, what these fellas achieved was insane! and it was in cold blood too. they chose to do this. to sail across the sea in a second hand whaleboat for six men they’d mostly never met. simply because it was an injustice they were locked up and it was the right thing to do..

it kina reminds me about a quote i read in highschool. (it was sorta referring to hitler but it went..) “evil only wins when good men do nothing” and i always remembered that line.

it feels really gimpy saying this, but these dudes lived massive lives, what kina story is that?!! i guess it’s got me thinking, i mean i’m only 19, but will i ever do anything as aweinspiring as this?

i live in this city but i’d never heard of this story. check this doco out. i’m going to go hunt down a book:)).

buy a digital SLR
i can't spend really big bucks..

i’m thinking a nikon d40x

my brothers got a d80 and its sweet as! but i think i like the smaller size.. and cost:)

slr cameras are so frickin sexy;)

up to level 4..

capital letters suck.

learn a new word every Sunday & use it.

i heard it on last nights election debate, when rudd angrily called johnny “salacious”.

it sounds kinna naughty;)
apparently it means:

1.lustful or lecherous.
2.(of writings, pictures, etc.) obscene; grossly indecent.


1. Appealing to or stimulating sexual desire; lascivious.
2. Lustful; bawdy. pornographic.

i think they were talking about the economy:)?

maybe i got it mixed up with “sagacious”. (which means 1. having or showing acute mental discernment and keen practical sense; shrewd: a sagacious lawyer.)

..but thats just boring;)

a cute line romitsyr gave me when i was randomly protesting about how i couldn't do something

..”but its really fun swimming when you are out there in the pool ;)”

make an anklet out of red, gold & black string
this sets a record for my fastest so far achieved goal:)

i tried to do some complicated braiding but got all knotted up, :o so i just sorta plaited it instead.

and i couldnt find red cotton the color i wanted so i threaded a white string with tiny red glass beads.

the macro on my camera is dodgy. or i just don’t know how to use it. either way, enjoy my blurry photograph:))

this photo

maybe its the flannelet. or the scrawling lights behind him..
i just love how he’s kina rough to look at, but the expression on his face is like he’s far away from it all. obliviously lost in his own moment and his own music and emotion.

theres like a beautiful kind of strength in here. its an image i wish i could just crawl into and experience; with all the gorgeously tragic music crashing around me:).

oh, it’s jeff buckley by the way..

Get coloured contacts
dudes, theres heaps more people doing 'colored' as apposed to 'coloUred' contacts. ..that's the way the US fellas spell it right?

i like my dark brown eyes.. but c’mon, this is my 19th year of dark brown eyes..

it would be fully sweet, to have really dark blue, really dark green, or even black(?)

lol, i’m going to google this:)

Study astronomy. (read all 2 entries…)
big black dogs.

hey, i was listening to some program about the stars last week & it was just after i’d finished the harry potter books:))

anyway, in hp, there’s this magic wizard dude who can morph into a big black dog, and his name is Sirius..

well, they tell me the closest (& therefore brightest/’biggest’) star in the sky is called ‘the dog star’, & other wise known as sirius.

haha, i just thought that was some sweet, abeit somewhat nerdy, trivia:) the end.

ONLY complaint is the nineteen years on bit.. how shitous was that?? it broke the illusion of Harry being this kid we can live through forever. Or cut my excitement/elation off short after such a massive ending!!
