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.

nicolasc has left the building.I did nothing

the last 2-3 days of this goal! Pooh! I have been feeling very low energy, I think because of my asthma flaring up.

Edit: But TOTALLY WORTH IT!! 2 years ago

I’m bummed I didn’t actually finish up the last days with hooping.
I do enjoy this goal though!

I did what I could!

TrulaJuly 10th Hooping, Last Day!

Last night of the hooping challenge, I made it! Woooo-hoooo! It went great, and I’m so glad it’s over LOL. 30 days of continuos hooping, I cant believe I did it. I’m going to continue hooping, just not 30 minutes daily. Maybe just 15 minutes a day. 2 years ago

Bedhead2Today is the last day!!!

:) 2 years ago


now that the weather is cooling down, I’ve decided to give me shoulder a rest. It’s quite painful at night and I am thinking that hooping will continue to aggravate it.

I do have a massage appointment for tomorrow so I may be back on board for tomorrow if that helps and will have just skipped today.

My flow is boring. I need more moves. My mood is blah.

Probably related to the heat as well as the shoulder pain, obviously.

So, after those things are remedied we will see. 2 years ago

nicolasc has left the building.Day 29

I think we might be off…this is the 7th of July, and I’m already on Day 29? That would make the 8th day 30, and the 9th day 31…Hmmm! Maybe I’m off, but I think I’ve been counting fairly carefully.edit: oh, crikey, it’s me! I never posted Day 11 or 12!

OK, HARD TIME getting the hoop up to my chest again! Only did it twice out of several attempts. Lots of times up to my ribcage and no further. I don’t know why I had a period of time when it was so easy, and now it’s so hard again. I do think having an ample bosom is an added challenge. It’s like…if the hoop isn’t at just the right place in the orbit, my chest can’t get up and under the hoop to nudge it up. GAH! Frustrating.

But I had some good music to hoop to. Found some Nightmares on Wax and older OutKast thanks to kaleidoscopelady! The second NOW song I hooped to seemed to go on forever…then I checked and it was 40 minutes long, LOL! So I only hooped to 20 minutes of it before moving on to the next song, even though it was a good one to hoop to.

Hoop playlist for the night:

How Ya Doin’ – Nightmares on Wax
Now – Nightmares on Wax
Bombs Over Baghdad – OutKast
Da Art of Storytelling (remix) – OutKast
Family Affair – Mary J. Blige
Glamorous – Fergie w/Ludacris
Pump It – Black Eyed Peas

So I hooped about 45 minutes tonight. :-) 2 years ago

nicolasc has left the building.Day 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, and 28

Yeah. Long string of days there with no hooping. But I am undefeated.

Hooped tonight (Day 28) to:

Hey Ya – OutKast
LaGrange – ZZ Top
Gone Daddy Gone – Gnarls Barkley
King of Swing – Big Daddy Voodoo
Knock on Wood – Eddie Floyd
Hold On I’m Coming – Sam and Dave

Hard time again getting it up to my chest, but I lassoed it once, so I fit something extra in! 2 years ago

kaleidoscopeladymy groove

I seem to have lost it.

It happens sometimes. Either my 32” has turned to jello or I’ve outgrown it in some manner. alternatively I need to grow into it again, and increase my speed.

At any rate…

Music is an issues. I was moved by some Tool last evening as well as some Lauryn Hill today.

I feel bored and lost and a little blue. I need some soul space. It’s been so freaking hot I haven’t been spending a lot of time in the hoop. 2 years ago

JadedForeverStressed out hooping -

Evening hooping! (Still light out)

Hooping on my little patio!

Bedhead2Deck hooping to fireworks

30 minutes done! One neighbor saw me from his patio. He looked like he was about 80 years old and he was wondering what kind of fun was going on nearby!
I went inside after about 10 minutes and hooped indoors to a pink floyd light show video. That along with looking out the window at fireworks was pretty fun!

For the 4th of July, we went out for dinner & for a hike up to “Inspiration Point”. We also spent some time visiting all of the horses hanging out around the park. I saw one deer just hanging around near some of the farm equipment. It was a lovely evening overall.
Back to work tomorrow at 7am! 2 years ago
