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.

find my best friend from elementry school that i haven't seen since 2nd grade
whoda thunk it...

so, this “thing” came from facebook.com. i was browsing around, found some old friends & tried searching for the oldest friend I could remember, but didn’t find her. meh, oh well, probably spelled her name wrong or she wasn’t on facebook or something. i had given up after that & was actually gonna take this “thing” down, but yesterday, i arrive at work & had a message in my facebook mailbox from her!!! how friggin weird is that!!! w/in a few weeks of each other, we both remembered the other & did a search!! weird ass stuff, man…weird ass stuff…

anyway, that’s one thing down!! woohoo!!!

amazing views!!



move into my own apartment
little scarey...

so, i’ve been living away from my parents house for 4 years now, but since I’ve been in university, they’ve still been helping me make rent payments & such. July 1st I moved to Switzerland for 6 months to study physics at CERN. my father chose to cut me off becuase of this. so, for the first time in my life, i’m paying for my own cute little studio apartment!!! I just realized that the other day whilst sitting on the crapper in my cute little studio. I was doing my business, looking around, and realized that this apartment was mine!! I’m paying for it all by myself, I found it…and I did all this while living in a foreign country & not knowing a lick of French!!! It was a very empowering moment!!
