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.

handmake a tarot deck

Two years ago, I started drawing cards for a tarot deck, without really knowing what was in it. I lost them and re-came across the idea this week. I plan to cut the cards from cardstock to 2.5” by 3.5”, sketch in pencil, and ink with sharpie.

A little info:

There are 78 cards in a standard deck: 22 in the Major Arcana and 56 in the Minor Arcana.

0. The Fool
1. The Magician
2. The High Priestess
3. The Empress
4. The Emperor
5. The Hierophant
6. The Lovers
7. The Chariot
8. Strength
9. The Hermit
10. Wheel of Fortune
11. Justice
12. The Hanged Man
13. Death
14. Temperance
15. The Devil
16. The Tower
17. The Star
18. The Moon
19. The Sun
20. Judgement
21. The World

The Minor Arcana consists of fifty six cards, divided into four suits of fourteen cards each; ten numbered cards and four court cards. The court cards are the King, Queen, Knight and Jack, in each of the four tarot suits: swords, wands, pentacles, and cups.

So far, I have finished 4/78:

0. The Fool
1. The Magician
2. The High Priestess
3. The Empress

stop biting my nails (read all 8 entries…)

...just sit back and relapse again. School has been very stressful and I’m going through a rough patch with my boyfriend, so I’ve taken to biting my nails again. Not good. Hopefully I’ll unwind over break and be able to stop again.

See all entries ...
