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.

true_blueCooked Chicken Stew again yesterday

The gravy was thicker this time.

I’m hoping to learn how to cook chicken soup next. I’ll be watching Youtube videos. 8 months ago

true_blueLearned a new recipe

My mother showed me how to segment a whole chicken as well as how to cook Chicken Stew. All that’s left for me to do is practise because I think I’ve forgotten something already.

I did cook Chicken Stew following her instructions and it turned out okay, except the gravy wasn’t thick enough. 8 months ago

jacca19Made empanadas!

So I made empanadas for the first time. It came out ok. I forgot to out raisins it. Then I had the problem of my empanadas not staying shut so they baked a lil funny. I tried! I want to try again and try other fillings. 11 months ago

A fish with many finsMade quite a number of dishes and baked goodies!

I’ve been baking pies, cakes, muffins… and I’m yearning to learn so much more.

I was also able to make hummus, pastas and a number viands (with the help of my kid’s nanny).

Wow, this is so exciting! I’m looking forward to make more goodies. My child is my inspiration. :-) 17 months ago

true_blueRecipe books

I’ve bought 2 recipe books from Amazon. Looking forward to cooking more meals! 17 months ago


I’ll be living in my own house beginning from June 1st until May of next year, so I’ll have access to a full kitchen and the freedom to use it whenever I want. That’s something that couldn’t be said for the first two years of my UPS experience, so this shouldn’t be too hard to accomplish.

I’m living with some very independent people, many of which have previous experience in living on their own, so they have experience cooking for themselves. I do too, I suppose, but I’ve rarely been in a position where I have free reign over an entire kitchen and its supplies.

The first step is acquiring a decent set of kitchenware, which will certainly be divided up amongst the housemates. Second step is to find a few recipes I’d like to learn and practice, practice, practice. I hope to one day be able to find a random assortment of ingredients and be able to whip up something edible and hopefully tasty. So then, becoming comfortable with one or more recipes would be a good place to start. 19 months ago
