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.

It's Gonna.. Hurt?

What do you guys think about shows like Jackass and The Dudesons? I had a “Dudesons” marathon yesteray and I couldn’t help but laughing a lot most of the time. But my mom, as well as laughing, she said a couple times “Those guys are just crazy” hehehe

Do you thinks those guys are “just crazy”?
Do you find those shows funny?
If yes, what’s the weirdest prank you’d make to your mates?

BTW, I consider myself a total fan of The Dudesons since yesterday. :)

Not Exactly, But...

...I got a haircut like the one in the left. But, Daddy Yankee style (right) was my preferred haircut while I was in college hehehehe. Despite that… I like this kind of cut the first week only. Then I start wishing my hair grows again real fast. ...To get another haircut. Lol.

Guts... Hunchs...

Talking about jobs (my previous entry)... A former college mate offered me a couple days ago a job, well, not exactly… I’ll make the story short: He told me about a company what’s looking people to work “making calls”. I asked him if it was telemarketing, he said “no, well, not exactly, kind of…” and then “you won’t be selling anything, but you’ll work with a phone and a pc”. He’s telling me they pay extremely well (he even told me numbers, and well, let’s say those were real great numbers), and that they’re looking for people to start yesterday. Problem is… I feel it sounds too good to be true (or at least, to be completely good). I also know a little bit about this guy, and I can tell (because of what I’ve seen and heard) his methods and circumstances… May not be necessarily legal sometimes. He, in fact, he has a “kinda weeeeird” way of living. Besides, when I asked him for the exact address of the office, or at least a phone number, he just gave me a vague address (which is, by the way, a place where I wouldn’t exactly feel safe) and no number or email, or whatever-like.

...So, I don’t know… I have a hunch… I’ve a couple bad feelings about it. I know I need to get a new job (my current one, well, it’s a dead end road, filled with equal amounts of good moments, and crap, but that’s another story), I also know I should have “some guts and try it without any doubt or fear”... and I know I NEED to start settling down: I’m planning to get real serious with my partner (despite all of my terrible mistakes, but that’s another story too!), so, I need to make a serious, adult, responsible life, but… I also think that having a calm, clear, quiet mind is priceless.

I had a job once, a year ago… Cashier, at a strip club. That was my worst job, ever. It’s a terrible story. And, coincidentally, I got it in a VERY similar situation, so, it makes my hunch harder.

What should I do?
What do you all think about this?
Should I just “take some guts” and try, even if I have bad feelings about it?
Should I just keep my plan of waiting for this year to end, and start looking a decent, better job next January?

I’ll really appreciate your answers :) Thanks.

See all entries ...
