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.

Moving from London to NYC

I may be moving to NYC to live and work. I’ve been offered a position at my employer’s US office and may be going at the end of August, just after my birthday.

The reason why I say ‘maybe’ is that a definitive ‘yes’ depends on salary negotiations, but hopefully we’ll manage to reach an agreement and I may be changing my life completely! Like a French friend observed yesterday: “That doesn’t happen to many Brazilian girls!” :P

This is scary though, I get nervous about leaving so many people I love here in London, but this is an incredible opportunity, I may regret if I don’t go for it (taking a deep breath).

I know it will be an awesome experience, but I get this funny feeling in my tummy everytime I think about it. These transition times are the best – they make you feel very much alive.

Too much to read

I have reached my maximum capacity for reading. I think I hadn’t realised the amount of reading I do on a regular basis before setting ‘Read More’ as a goal.

This is part of my job, so I can say I spend 90% of my day reading. And there is a lot to read for my freelance work as well. I read for leisure in the morning whilst having breakfast, on my way to work I read the broadsheet paper or the Metro, on the way back I read a book. At the moment I am reading Dirty Havana Trilogy of Pedro Juan Gutierrez. This book has lost its initial energy though and got a bit boring, so I shall move on soon.

Then before sleeping I read children’s stories on the Internet or else some light reading, I have the pocket essentials by Tim Burton on my bedside.

get a motorcycle licence
a sign...

I’ve just moved into a friend’s place and whilst I was cleaning up I found all this study material, and now I have started to study the theory to get a motorcycle license! I always wanted to have a Vespa, with big sunglasses and scarf on. Very 60’s :)
