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.

being unemployed helped me re discover a passion

Don’t get me wrong, being unemployed is tough.
Trust me too, when I say : growing up in a small town on Hawaii makes it even more harder! (Highest cost of living winner)

I’m not lazy, I’ve worked a solid list of jobs since / and in highschool. My last and final job impacted my life in a shitty way.
My self esteem was at the lowest level. The boss I once considered a mentor ,almost family, turned into an asshole after losing his grip on his alcohol habit. ( starting work with a beer and then ending with at least 12 beers & maybe a few glasses of wine..)
It really sucked. I tried my best & hardest . Always had a smile on even when he would put me down .. I just had to quit after a busy night then being ripped apart for asking what time I could go home (actually trying to find out so I could schedule a ride home) .

This post isn’t about that crappy experience.
In fact, I value and took information away I can use in life.

The first week I lofted around.
Second week , finished my move to a new home.
Third, cleaned the new abode.
Forth, awesome life discovery.

My passion for “budget fashion”.
I enjoyed digging through thrift store bins.
Carefully locating labels, holding for a fancy brand name.
Destaining articles of clothing.
Ahhhhhhhhhh just so relaxing , comforting, JUST the best feeling arose when I’d be able to be around clothes.
Soon I opened a account and posting style collections.
Very soon I got noticed and my boards got tons of likes !
Its always nice to be reassured
