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.

bubblegum08am i falling in love?

i can’t explain the feeling. when i am with him, i feel happy. when i’m not with him, he’s still the one i’m thinking. whatta?!! and i sometimes just caught myself smiling when i think of him.
he makes me feel i’m a girl. not like my other male friends who treats me like i’m a boy. yah sometimes i look and behave like a boy but it doesn’t mean i am not girl. I also want to be treated special – pampered and taken cared of.
this was the feeling i had with joe. he treats me like a girl. When I alight in a boat, he offered his hand to me to help me get off the boat. when we are walking in the street he let’s me walk on the inner side and he on the outer side so i will be protected by jeepneys or other vehicles who pass our way. He carries my stuff especially when it’s heavy. he listens to me. i like him.
am i in love with him? 2 months ago


bubblegum08able to to the 5 minute sun salutation

There are lots of applications you can download in google apps which can teach you how to do yoga. Mine is the Daily Yoga.com. The app shows you how to do it and give instructions while you are doing the poses. It also has a music which helps you concentrate on your poses.
Everyday, right after i wake up i do the sun salutation even for just five minutes. and after a few days, i already mastered the steps and poses and sometimes i just do the routine without turning on my cellphone.
this is a great way to start learning Yoga. It’s good for the body and mind. it helps me jump start my day. 2 months ago


bubblegum08enrolled in a driving school and practice

The first step is to get the student’s license.
Second was to enroll in a driving school. I enrolled in a driving school last February. i really need to do it then because my student license will expire in May and i don’t want to get rushed too much. Also, i don’t want to get another student license and pay 318pesos again and wait for another month to get my driver’s license.
Third was to practice always. Drive your car but remember that someone who has a driver’s license should accompany you. I borrowed my brother-in-law’s car to practice because i don’t have one yet. (that’s my next goal after this!).
Fourth is to get my driver’s license. I applied last May 6 and also got it on the same day.
And now i am free to roam around and drive in a car. That is what you call independence!!! 2 months ago

bubblegum08I now know how to drive a car

I enrolled in a driving school to force myself to learn how to drive a car. I’ve been wanting to drive since I-can’t-remember-when-but-it-was-a-long-time-ago time. the first time I drive the car, it was freedom. I felt like i can conquer the world! hahah. that’s too much but the feeling is so good i now want to buy my own car. my problem though is i find it difficult to control the clutch.

need to practice more! 3 months ago

bubblegum08november 2013 amazing grace by danielle steel

I not a fan of love novels. I like reading about mystery novels or adventures. However, when I came to a bookstore earlythis year, they have a sale on books and saw danielle steel’s amazing grace book. It is my first book on danielle steel and the first book I read with her as an author. I thought maybe I should give it a try. I was hooked. I love how simple she tell the stories but it touches your heart. It is about 4 people whose lives where intertwined after they were affected by an earthquake. The story shows you that everything will be all right, everything bad will pass, and you will rise up strong amidst all the adversities. God is with us providing amazing grace. 7 months ago

bubblegum08i am about to get this off my list

Yes! I am taking notes of credit card debt and the payments I made for the past couple of months in order for me to know if I can be able to hit my target or how much I should pay in order for me to achieve only P10,000 debt before the end of June. And I think I am successful on this one. I am not yet sure because I haven’t received my billing statement yet.
ha! I’m excited to get billing statement already. Hopefully it is below P10k.

bubblegum08Start small

Thank you for your comment. You are right. I need to learn how to solve my problems effectively.
I think i have to start writing my problems and identify what needs to be done in order to solve them. Start from something and eventually everything will be okay.

bubblegum08how do you get rid of depression?

how do you get rid of depression? My weekend was great and I am thankful I am able to travel and be carefree so I’ll forget the real sad world I am living with. But in the end, you will still have to go back to the real world no matter what you do to escape from it. I want to get rid of this negative thoughts. They say happiness is a choice. I decided to be happy but it is still difficult to do.
I want to be happy. I know there is no one in this world who is happy everyday but what I mean is I can say most of days here in this world is a happy day. and lately most of my days are not.
Depression comes back again. I can’t work well. I don’t find it fulfilling anymore. What should I do? 14 months ago


bubblegum083 attempts before i can donate blood

After 3 attempts, i finally was able to donate blood. My everyday taking up of ferrous sulfate (iron) vitamins and exercise paid well. I’m so happy when i saw my blood sample went down in that blue liquid. My hemoglobin is normal!

Thank you Lord! 14 months ago

bubblegum08i travelled abroad using the money i earned

I traveled to HongKong last September 17 – 21, 2012 together with my friends in high school. It was such a wonderful feeling – a fulfillment of a dream. I thought I won’t be able to go abroad without other people paying for my travel expenses. But I did it. I used my own money – earned from my work! I didn’t asked money from my parents (even if it was so tempting to accept the money they are offering me).
I want to do it again. Travel abroad, maybe on the next trip, it will be THAILAND! 20 months ago

bubblegum08done half of the job

i have started the first part of the database. i wish i know how to use ms access or any program on database because it will be much easier. Building a database requires lots of data (yeah, data) and you must know how to manage it. And having knowledge on making a database is so helpful.
maybe i should add that to my 43things – upgrade the halfdone database to ms access.
i only used ms excel. formulas are so long and needs a lot of worksheets. plus its not that flexible. i can’t easily make a report. but maybe i can make it before the year ends. yes that my goal! 2 years ago


bubblegum08my future?

when i finish to read this book, then that would be the time I will be able to assess myself if i will or should continue to work in microinsurance industry, if I really want to he here forever.I don’t know. In terms of work, i don’t find it fulfilling anymore. Because i don’t feel i am secure. It feels like I am afraid of the future. I know God will always be there for me no matter what. But I don’t know if makaya ko. right now, i am looking for my happiness. I try to always be happy in little things, on my blessings. I don’t focus much on the problems. But when will I be able to do this?
God help me! 2 years ago
