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.

Sunseteven if im the only one here,

Nyx and I are starting to be on friendlier terms. Its so nice to have her on side, and the darkness is no longer so sad.
Trying to balance the Goddess of Darkness and Destruction and Chaos with the Goddess of Sun and Fertility and Justice is a struggle though! i dont know which time of day i should like more! 2 years ago

Sunsetim wondering what happened to my fellow priestesses...

but im going to choose to assume you are all doing the stuff instead of contemplating doing the stuff on your list -like i am. XD 2 years ago


i finally feel the relation between me and Nyx!!!
I so feel like taking a run through the night!
Goes and runs like a maniac
P.S. I made a chatzy link for all of us and here it is: 2 years ago


Me too! I apologize waiting at the last minute.
I get kind of shy. Again deeply sorry!

Anyways, at first i thought that i had a very close bond with Zeus.
I guess i don’t anymore.
Instead of feeling to wind and electricity through my veins,
All i feel is darkness,
And laying on the ground seeing the beautiful night and stars,
I had a choices either being Wiccan/Christian.
But I had on interest in any.
Sometimes i feel stressed,
I can’t just go up to my mom,(who is dead)
or my dad,(who is in prison for beating and neglecting me)
I am too shy!
I am alone!!!!
I can only open up to nature, and communicate with it,
I have that same strong feeling with night.
My dad is finally calming down,
I am soo glad!
But the question is will he continue be a criminal?
I do believe in him though!

Every day i write poetry on expressing my emotions,
In the night!

For now I will remain in the night! :) 2 years ago

Sunsetalthough my vampire goal is failing

I do at least appear to be slowly evolving to a sunset. :)
Yay to golden-rose-purple blends! 2 years ago

Sunseti got sidetracked... :o

Is Dawn like the new moon/waxing moon
=New beginnings, new ideas, wishes, growth, healing.
Sunset, waxing/dark moon
=Cleansing, banishing, completing, karma, divination

Just trying to get ideas of our purposes… what do you think? Youre officially responsible for trying to be creative! Im just trying to bring change. 2 years ago

SunsetPhase one- complete!

My initiatory thingummy!
Equiped with only a candle(dark purple) a box of matches and a water bottle, i brave the mosquito plague and venture to the garden… O.O
The element summoning works okay, i have a chat with my personification of each(water is hard to look at, she keeps morphing) about the hi, please work with me, this is what im after.
Then i invite Nyx/spirit.
She almost appears(a vague shadow out the corner of my eyes)and paces around me in a predatory way, sizing me up i’d say. So i plead my case. She eventually(after enjoying much begging) agrees to have me as a daughter(at the exact moment she said she would accept me as a daughter of night the candle went out) but she was a bit iffy on the vampire thing… either she didnt want to or she had something different in mind for me. So i told her(naturally) that i’d wait for a while if she needed, and that i would listen to her in my dreams/life for the direction i should take under her care. But she seemed to like me as sunset phoenix, and told me to be careful i didnt dwell in the darkness of night, because the stars and moon provide light, hope and direction in life, as well as make the journey more magickal.
Tonight i will listen to my dreams, but for now i have to go and deal with angry parents who a) had banned me from net and b) asked me to clean up something. g2g! :D

I think some of us are making good headway with this goal! 2 years ago

CronaMy experience

Basically in 10-20 minutes this is what happened. I hoped in my circle and opened up the window (not all the way so I didn’t get heat out it’s chilly, but worth it.) I focused on the elements I felt easch item around my circle a couple of times.I closed my eyes tighter and and td Nyx what I wanted (drunked half the water offered to Nyx like you suggested, Armen)while focusing on the night, I didn’t see but after foucsing I heard her say “My honorary daughter” and I also saw my Nyx vision where she was holding a baby in a long white gown ( I told you about this Armen) beautifulest five second vision ever. I could feel the air circulating in my
hinds I took it and tossed it in the night. Felt the water and all. the elements again and my mind said “I’m done”. I think when I threw the air it made new for my soul element water. And the vision symbols me and Nyx’s relationship. Hope I wasn’t to quick if you think, so I could do a long time medit tommorrow. 2 years ago


About the spell is it more of a ritual than a spell? And we need to go over exactly we need to cast the circle 2 years ago
