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.

Did it through my travel blog 3 years ago

VenusianOur beloved President Cory Aquino died peacefully..

At first, I didn’t want to believe it. At the back of my mind, there was struggle not to accept the news but eventually, I gave in. Why is it so hard for us, Filipinos to let go of our very first Lady President? It’s because she was a great leader—brave, humble and true enough, she fought for our democracy against a dictatorship that had been with us for 20 years. She made it happen.

Yet, five days ago, she died after fighting colon cancer for years. Today is her state funeral…every one in my country is in mourning.

Goodbye dearly beloved President will remain in our hearts forever.5 years ago


This is a really nice goal. I’m kinda doing it by posting photos in my different Flickr groups. Would like to do more though… 7 years ago

venusianPenafrancia Fiesta

Bicolanos, devotees and visitors are currently celebrating the feast of our Patroness of Bicolandia, Nuestra Senora de Penafrancia. It’s a month long celebration in Naga City and the whole Bicol Region. During the festivity, a lot of activities were prepared for everyone to enjoy so it’s consider as one of the country’s major tourist-drawing festivals!

The other day, my daughter, Chachie joined the parade in her Girl’s Scouts’ uniform. She was so thrilled as that was her first time!

Viva la Birhen! Happy fiesta Bicolanos!

venusianA HUB for Filipinos and travelers alike

There are TWO great reasons why I always dream of visiting BOHOL.
First: It’s home to the world famous Chocolate HILLs.
*Second: the world’s smallest monkey can be found here, the *TARSIER.

Chocolate Hills. Consisting of 1,268 haycock hills with heights ranging from 40 to 120 meters, the Chocolate Hills is one of nature’s wonders. The dome-shaped, grass-covered limestone hills dry up and turn brown during the summer, transforming these into rows and rows of Chocolate “kisses.”

Smallest Monkey. In Bilar, a 3-kilometer man-made forest is
sanctuary to the province’s endangered species including the tarsier.

Bohol is definitely a must-see!

venusianMy Philippines

I am from the land of coconut trees
of beautiful sun-kissed beaches
summer sea breeze
daydreaming in a hammock
floating between two palm trees
from crimson dusk, til sapphire dawn

Land gateway to a paradise
outstanding natural landscapes
clear unsullied waters
white powdery sand
calm waters, lush foliage
crystal clear turquoise sea
sparkling in emerald green

Land of my forefathers
haven of the free
abode of brown-skinned men
Philippines, I am from thee.
