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.

Feels good to actually fulfil a goal on my list the day 43t is suppose to be closing!

Although I have gone turtle watching already, I wanted to go again as it has been a couple years since. It really was a wonderful experience. Because of the time of the year I only expected to see hatchlings, but a mother turtle came up just as we reached….and was approaching shore as we were leaving.

To stand there and witness this natural phenomena is really invaluable. So many thoughts and questions run through your mind as you see this huge animal that lives in the ocean come on shore and find her way to a perfect spot and use her fins to dig up to 4 ft creating a hole. I think animals are amazing!

The tour guides taught us so much. I learned about their mating rituals and how the mother turtle deposits eggs that have nothing in it to create oxygen in the hole for the hatchlings….like how cool is that! She goes into a trance whilse she lays her eggs and not even the light from our cameras disturb her. Because of this we were able to touch her and see the eggs close up!

Later we released some hatchlings the guides had saved earlier from the evening hatchings and we watched them fight and go into the waters and swim for their lives. They are so strong and cute!

It’s imperative I don’t forget to take __ lots of photos because __that’s what brings me great joy and memories.

The chosen mode of transport is __plane! And I’m excited to hopefully ride the subway.

When I get there I intend to _explore as much as I can in a week, doing things i can’t do in Trinidad.

On my way home I will __probably catch up on some sleep.

This trip will go down in history, or at least my personal history, asmy first New York City trip …. as well as the trip that got my travelling life rolling!4 months ago

TriniprincessFarewell to 43things

It’s the 16th and I can still write an entry. I’m very happy about that…even if it turns out to be the last one.

My last months have drawn me away from internet life altogether and it goes without saying that 43things has been on my mind alot. Especially now as I am about to reach another birthday, this has always been my site to come to to do introspection and random ramblings that allowed me to clear my head and take in the things I needed to grow, to move, to conquer.

I found 43things by mere accident and I came on here not knowing anyone at all, but simply knowing something like this is what I needed in my life. Saying it exceeded my expectations is an understatement! I have gained life-long friends. And although I wish I was more active and not afraid to connect with people, I cherish those I have connected with. I have gained a great hobby of collecting postcards through this site…and I don’t think that will ever die either. I have developed habits and rituals, hobbies and coping mechanisms all through being on 43t. The site itself created a positive environment and the people that found themselves here added an invaluable touch that makes saying goodbye so difficult! However, it has to be said…but like everything I hold deep and dear in my heart, the memory and positive impact of everyone here will never leave me.

To the Robots and to the community…I love you guys and gals...thank you for the support, the laughs, the cries, the prayers, the hopes, the dreams, the accomplishments, the games, the fun, the ideas and inspiration, the cards, the gifts…..the love….and the cheers!

Good morning! :) 4 months ago

TriniprincessHi Todd!

I have not been able to be on here often as the site closes. But thank you for your words….thank you for your engagement. It was a total pleasure getting to know you as well and feeling totally thought of from someone so far away!

That chance may come sooner than we think. But I really do hope it happens! It will be a fine day! 4 months ago

Triniprincess#10 - Come out to play - Benjai

This song is just vybzzzz It really says what everyone wants to say during Carnival!

It was a big hit…and very controversial was Benjai performance of this song.

“Leave meh lemme do it na. Free Up!” Definitely the words of Carnival….anything goes!

TriniprincessGot it!

There was so much drama as the people working at the Passport office have been striking for the last month. So they have been operating on reduced working hours….until 11 am. I thought it would have been impossible to get there but I did and my passport was ready. So happy! US Visa next??

Triniprincess A lil pass mid-way update

So June has been good…it’s just speeding! My happiness level is up although I have been having some not so good moments. But thankfully, it’s only moments and nothing more. Been really focused on keeping my mind at a place where I feel at peace, where I’m not frustrated or anxious.

I just got back from a three-day Tobago trip and I really wanted to do some introspection in Tobago but for some reason it just did not happen. Got home last night and had a 3 hour conversation with a friend on What’s App and surprisingly we spoke alot about life…and surviving…and doing the things we love…and being who we want to be! It was everything I needed! And I got it in the place I was no looking at all.

Today, is the start of a four-day long weekend in T&T and I’m hoping to be very productive. Need to get back on my healthy eating bandwagon as Tobago was too good to me when it came to food. At least I resisted getting crab and dumplin! (the struggle was real).

Last weekend I spent at our national library trying to get information for my paper. So between today and tomorrow, I’m hoping to finish another draft.

Went to a 5k and after-party with foam last week Sunday…it was totally awesome! Have about two more exciting events for June…one this weekend, a Street Art Festival.

Happiness is still flowing! ... and I’m loving it!

TriniprincessToday's Progress


I’ve been doing really well in trying to change my lifestyle into a healthy one. I did a meal prep last night and I was able to prepare breakfast, lunch and a snack of fruits today. Didn’t have to spend one cent today.

I started my personal water challenge and I got to about 1.5 litres of water. Pretty good for my first day…if I do say myself. Can’t wait to see where I reach with this at the end of June.

I also did a simple workout this morning and bought myself some vitamins this evening. :)


Bought pills to help me stay up but I haven’t taken any yet.

Received an email today from my subject specialist saying there is no time for her to check another draft in time for my deadline of Thursday so she looks forward to my final submission….nothing’s going to break my stride....I’m up tonight working on my paper to the best of my ability…without her!


Brainstormed an idea for about an hour. Simple enough.


Enjoyed simple pleasures today. Took time to write a couple postcards to send out. Have surrounded myself with music as much as I could today. Took time to enjoy some online socializing.
