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.

We have a lot of storms lately.
And our guard dog is scared of thunders.
And he doesn’t use his dog-house because he was chained to it for the last 10 years (credit goes to A’s late grandmother).
So, because of a bad storm tonight, we have let him in the house (we generally let him hang out inside during the day, but never during the night because he’s an outdoor dog, and we really don’t know how will he act when confined inside for so long as an entire night). So, wish us luck that he doesn’t make too much of a mess during the night.
But I really couldn’t let him stay out in this weather, he is so sad and scared. :/
I learned how to crochet!
Working on tomatoes in our garden!
Love in the air!
Had a bad period of headaches but it’s over for now!
My computer is down! I need to reinstall it in a few days, oh noes!
Bugs in the air!
I don’t feel like writing here anymore, it’s so empty and generally falling apart.
Although I have an account on popclogs, I’m really not into it, there are too many things I don’t like there. It just doesn’t feel like I would want it to.
So, after 43things disappears, I’m not sure I will continue writing entries anywhere for a while. It’ll be a huge loss, but I just don’t see myself feeling again like this anywhere but here.
I love it here, really, it is so free and inspiring, but I’m getting a bit exhausted with this fight I’m leading with the world of bugs.
Today wasn’t a very good day.
First, some big flying bugs are swarming our porch, so hanging out was a quite uncomfortable. Countryside is kinda losing it’s feel if we gotta hangout inside.
A horrible, f**king, centipede-like, big, creepy bug was on out bedroom wall. I’m horrified, and very afraid to go to sleep.
The dog is back after 2 days!
More knitting! I’ve made so many little projects since I came here.
I actually made a pattern of my own (nothing spectacular, but still).
Secret Santa plans. :)
Grumpy: Since it stopped raining, there are more bugs, which I don’t mind too much, except for some evil wasps who were attacking us today! Rain is better than heat!
Here you go a picture of Dante before his haircut.
This are happy, productive times.
Faced with the imminent death of the 43things, I’ve started reviewing the options…
I started a blog! But I don’t really know what to do with it, so at the moment it’s on hold.
Started a flickr too. But I need to discuss material with A, since he’s mostly the photographer.
I will move to popclogs after the 43t has definitely closed, mostly because so many people are migrating there. But for now I’m not really too much into it.
Such sad days have come. I can’t believe 43t is actually closing.
I will post here until the very end.
We went to the countryside for a week or more. But it keeps raining! However, we still spend days at the porch, listening to birds while hanging out.Happy:
We come across many brown butterflies in our walks lately!
Sometimes it feels like we’re in some movie, when they fly up as we walk through grass.
Studied more. But won’t be taking the exam tomorrow.
It’s very warm, but I decided not to stress about it because it’s not something I can change.
1. I’m in a constant struggle between my love for food and the desire to be desirable.
2. Vitiligo on my hands is spreading but I don’t mind it much. I actually find it interesting in a way, I’m a more colorful person now. But I won’t be too happy if it spreads on my face.
... been feeling a bit under the weather, emotionally, so didn’t feel like writing much, but I’m here, I’m always here.Grumpy:
