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.

Rudiano BambinoBuilding momentum...

I seem to have gotten the hang of it. Did 122 push ups today, in several stints again. Then my friend challenged me so he could capitalize on my being tired so I did 30 more.
Next episode on Tuesday!

Rudiano BambinoThis time round...

The idea is to become consistently productive not just for 21 days, or 3 months but for 1 year at the very least.
The daily routine should include (not set in stone yet)

  1. iTunes wake up
  2. Press ups
  3. Bible reading
  4. Affairs of the day
  5. Planning of the next day
  6. iTunes sandman 15 months ago

Rudiano BambinoThe next day...

Surprisingly enough, I’m not aching. Yet I also went to the gym yesterday so it seems my body is taking it very well. I feel good about this goal!
So today, with 1 minute between sets as usual, the app made me do 110 push ups thusly:

1X13 (started struggling a little bit then)
1X12 (struggled a little bit more)
1X13 (thank goodness it’s over. I probably could have done another set but that would have been it!)

Apparently I should take a day of rest now so I’ll be back on Sunday! 15 months ago

Rudiano Bambino5 days later....

I have actually tried again 4 days ago. I ached a few days after but I was definitely not aching anymore when I tried today. Used the push ups app from RITTR Labs. It made me do 99 push ups thusly:

1 minute rest
1 minute rest
1 minute rest
1 minute rest
1 minute rest

1 minute rest

Rudiano BambinoOne thing that seems to work well is...

Bathing in oat flakes (or using oat flakes in a muzzling as a scrub). It seems to stop itchiness and irritation and the skin looks healthier too. This is going to be a new addition to my skin routine. Much safer than being radiated and more effective than man-made creams. 15 months ago

Rudiano BambinoTime has spoken....

And it has revealed that I had not found my why. My why has to do with the person I want to become. I don’t think I am there but it still haunts me and it always will until I have achieved it. But I have to add to my affirmations emotional connection, belief. And stop listening to all the naysayers who don’t really know that they are killing me with their negativity….quite literally. Negative vibes are gnawing at my health, sanity and happiness. That’s enough.
I can’t let people hold me down. My calling is to make a difference to people’s lives, spiritually, emotionally and financially…And have a ball doing it.

I know it’s possible. 15 months ago

Rudiano BambinoGood!

Glad the “storm in a teacup”(interesting expression, might add it to my collection) is over and that I helped
God bless.

Rudiano Bambinooh wow

There’s an app for pretty much everything nowadays! Thanks, downloaded it. Looks pretty good! 15 months ago

Rudiano Bambino11 days later!!!

I was aching so much after the first time that I had to rest a considerable amount of time. But I’m back and here are today’s figures:

1X 50
Rest for 10 minutes

Let’s see how long I ache this time! 15 months ago

Rudiano BambinoIt's a privilege ... be able to touch someone’s heart… I’m glad! :)

Do you feel better though? 15 months ago

Rudiano BambinoThis got me a bit teary

You know sometimes we’re our worst enemy. We’re harsh on ourselves to the point of writing ourselves off. I was looking at my notes from a talk and discovered this:
Job experienced the same feelings when he went through all his trials. He felt God was so far from him that He would not listen to his prayers (Job 9:16). He accepted the trials but probably thought “God can’t love me if I’m going through this”. He was wrong but didn’t know better then. Thankfully, he didn’t let this thinking run its course (God doesn’t love me-> I don’t love myself-> I don’t deserve to be loved-> why bother doing right, I’m unlovable anyway->Let’s just do nothing/do bad)
This reasoning is a falsehood that God’s enemy would love everyone to embrace as truth so that they are utterly uninterested in God or in doing what he asks of us.
Some of us, for reasons maybe unknown to ourselves, are more likely than others to be plagued by this idea that we are unlovable.
The truth is, however, that we are loveable. God is greater than our hearts (1 John 3:19,20). Our hearts may churn out all these negative feelings but God knows where they are from and is above those. He knows we are fragile, imperfect, so he isn’t rough with us (Psalm 103:14).
Contrary to most people, God doesn’t despise us when we feel broken Psalms 51:17)
It may take some study and reflection to convince our heart of this, but it’s worth it. It keeps self-loathing and all manner of dark ramifications at bay. 15 months ago

Rudiano BambinoFlipping western medicine!

It seems the soreness after each session is here to stay…It only varies in intensity but it’s always there. The nurse says that it is expected on the psoriatic parts of my skin. I don’t remember feeling this way last year. Then again, I was radiated with UVA last year but this year, it’s UVB. Apparently these are stronger.
However, the major side effect to exposure to this is skin cancer. Great. Typical of western medicine: solve a problem by creating another…
After the treatment, I should be examined for skin damage and signs of cancer but my dermatologist hasn’t even scheduled a check up appointment! I’ve just found this out by researching on UVB following a friend’s advice.
Flipping western medicine! You can’t feel 100% in capable hands anymore… 15 months ago

Rudiano BambinoClean conscience...

It’s a good feeling to know you have done what you ought to even if it was hard. the appreciative comments and the blessings after are really encouraging.
The week was very busy. Took the field service group twice, had two talks yesterday, three mystery assignments, one decorating job. I was quite tired at the end of it all and was struggling but I’m relaxing today!
Next week seems quite good too, probably more work than I could cope with.
Thanks Jah :) 15 months ago

Rudiano BambinoHere we go again!

This should not take long. I’m only 11 stones.

Rudiano Bambinomidway point next week

It’s definitely working, even though skin feels a bit sore after each session. I’ve gone darker, which suits me, I was told… Kindov like it too. A black man with a tan…The irony! 16 months ago

Rudiano BambinoIt's interesting how... these cartoons are… I watched all of them in French ( Now own some of them in English). But I couldn’t recognise the words you sang… A clue please? ;) 16 months ago

Rudiano BambinoIn theory...

I started using the internet after I came of age so I don’t see why I couldn’t unlearn it. But that would be hard. I’m addicted… No more than a day I think and I suffer withdrawal symptoms! 16 months ago

Rudiano BambinoCartoon nostalgia

  1. Do you remember the cartoons you used to watch as a kid?
  2. Would you still be able to sing their opening title?
  3. Do you find yourself at times seeking those out as an adult?
  4. Is number 3 a guy thing?
  5. Lastly, which cartoon is this pic from? 16 months ago

Rudiano BambinoPurr

No need to hide behind the Emu…Admit you have unnatural feelings toward a human. You know what they say in the kitty world? Once you’ve gone human you’re forever a fan! (say whaaaat?!!) 16 months ago

Rudiano BambinoThanks Sankirk...

But I must confess I don’t look like that in reality… this is more me…. Corrr I’m such a wind up! :P 16 months ago

Rudiano Bambino"For now"

How did you know? Yes, I’m on borrowed time, so pretty soon I’ll be back in the rat race unless things fall into place before the end of the year -according to my guesstimations… 16 months ago

Rudiano Bambino2nd week in

...there seems to be less flakiness but I don’t know if if it’s due to me showering more to get rid of the excess stuff… One thing I’ve noticed though is that after the last 2 sessions I’ve felt sore in the evening and the morning after. A bit less the last time around but still, it messes me up. I hope it’s not gonna be a trend. 16 months ago

Rudiano BambinoWow.

Keen sense of observation coupled with a delightfully satirical touch, Bee. “CrackBerry” hahaha! You crack me up! 16 months ago

Rudiano BambinoFinished Numbers...

Lots happening in there. Starts with a census, ends with another census 40 year later.Most of the Israelites have died in the wilderness because of their incessant complaining, bad attitude and actions. It’s amazing how short a memory they had. Even though it ended badly each time, they soon made the same mistakes, again and again… They just didn’t learn…They went as far as wanting to go back to Egypt where they were slaves. They completely ignored the fact that God was with them, keeping them alive in the wilderness miraculously (manna, water, occasionally meat, shoes and clothes not wearing out etc…)

It just goes to show that you can have all the signs in front of some people, they just won’t get it. They will miss the big picture, act stupidly because they just can’t see beyond their puny selves… 16 months ago

Rudiano Bambino12/08/13

Today I’m grateful for
  1. Being out of the rat race
  2. Freedom to indulge in my many interests
  3. Freedom to explore and understand my peculiar self
  4. Having bumped into a friend who would have otherwise not made contact
  5. Another day of life to sort myself out before it’s too late.
  6. Sun, Sun, Sun!!!
  7. 2nd day of phototherapy and already I can feel results! 16 months ago
